“This will probably be the last post to EP. I also just closed comments. Some had offered to take over the EP name, but it’s a brand that’s closely associated with me and I couldn’t see passing it along.
Thanks for reading, it’s been a fun ride.” — Josh Hallett
On Twitter Josh wrote, “Just closed down one of my blogs….feels somewhat liberating.”
When we bandied about the future of the News Chief, I never expected that paper to outlast Empirical Polk.
I take comfort in the word “probably” that Josh is leaving open the option to change his mind.
Last month, when he wrote of the Future of EP, I commented that we’d get the Hallett view on topics from Hyku.com, BlogOrlando, Flickr, and Twitter, but it won’t be the same. I subscribe to all his posts in each of those sites, but I fear we’ll lose his perspective on Polk County.
I look forward to a day where something local strikes him and he feels he must post or burst.
