A Bittersweet Farewell

As you may have noticed, this site has gone without many updates over the past few months. My day job (I'm in production with Turner Sports) has taken up a large chunk of my time, and I no longer feel I have the ability to do the site justice with regular updates and analysis. That being the case, it is with a heavy heart that I announce I will no longer be posting here going forward.

Over the past 5+ years, I have thoroughly enjoyed providing updates and analysis on our favorite team. Discussing the Dolphins and interacting with my readers on a regular basis has been a pleasure, and writing these articles is something I'm certainly going to miss.

I began this site as a college kid posting analysis videos from a desk in my closet (literally) and I leave it as a married man and a sports broadcasting professional. This site was has always been such important thing to me and was something I was immensely proud of—so much so that I featured it prominently on my résumé in college as well as when I was interviewing for my current job at Turner.

For those with an insatiable thirst for my take on all things Dolphins (sarcasm), fear not! I will continue to tweet regularly @phinsspotlight and my discussion group (the largest for the Dolphins on Facebook) will remain active as well. Nothing will change in regards to those, so I look forward to continue to talk Dolphins football with everyone!

Additionally, I will say that my blogging career may not be quite dead yet, as there is a chance I will become a contributor at another existing Dolphins fan site in the near future. Such an arrangement could be ideal for me at this point in my life because it wouldn't put the burden on my to update daily but would still allow me to have a voice in the Dolphins blogger community and post from time to time. I can't speak further on this at the moment, but I will post here with more detailed if and when they become more available.

I want to thank everyone for all the visits, reads, comments, posts and tweets over the years. I'm certainly going to miss this site and you can bet I'll be back if I ever win a massive sum of money in the lottery.

Best wishes and Go Dolphins!
