The Future…

Brother and Sister curlers,

When I first started The View From The Hack a little over two years ago I always knew that the time would come when I could no longer devote as much time to the blog as I would like – one other thing that I was certain of was that I never wanted to walk away from or give up on this project entirely.

It is with these two thoughts in mind that I write this post today.

As of Monday 17 November I will be starting a new job as a Reporter with the Dunfermline Press – a publication that I am sure many of you will be familiar with and one which you can now expect to feature curling on a regular basis!

Working full-time means that I simply won’t be able to dedicate as much time and effort to writing for TVFTH as I have enjoyed in the past.

But this is not the end.

You know something? I love this sport of ours far too much to not continue researching, writing, taking pictures and talking to members of the great curling community to merely give up or call it a day.

Believe me when I say that I am my own harshest critic and I am fully aware that the blog needs changes both aesthetically and in terms of content – the timing would now seem to be ideal to make all the tweaks and improvements I have been wanting to do for a long time.

I intend to take TVFTH in a new direction alongside working full-time so expect to see the blog evolve in the future, hopefully for the better.

All of this means that for now the blog is in hibernation while I settle back in to the world of work and, with any luck, make the necessary changes.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support and invaluable contributions these last few years in terms of photos, quotes, corrections and even the odd tip-off – the blog would not have been the same without this help.

So here’s to the future and, in the words of a famous Austrian, I’ll be back…
