The Sconz bids Isthmus adieu
on (2) Comments

All good things must come to an end. For a long time, this blog was a very good thing. However, in recent months, I've become distracted by other endeavors, such as the radio show I produce and the business I have recently become a part of. So, for some time, this blog has not been such a good thing. Hence, it would be unreasonable for me to expect payment for it, no matter how paltry (and man, was it paltry) the sum.

Thus, The Sconz bids farewell to Isthmus, who so graciously provided a platform for one of my favorite pastimes: Talkin' politics. I don't think this is the end, however. Not only can you listen to me impart wisdom on a daily basis between 10-11 a.m. on 1670 WTDY (or 106.7 FM), where I play the contrarian to host Kurt Baron, but I will also be blogging once again at TheSconz.com, where it all started three years ago!

I've had a lot of fun blogging for the dead-tree press. Although I may have lost a number of my early readers because of Isthmus' rather strict commenting policy, I met many other citizens of Sconz Nation through the comment-section banter in the past two years. So please bookmark TheSconz.com and say hi! As I stated when I started the blog in May 2009, "Readers are enthusiastically encouraged to post anything in the comments section, from blistering criticism to slathering praise."

I'm involved in some pretty cool other ventures as well. My short-lived start-up, Sconz Creative, has now been absorbed by another company, LeadVia, an online marketing and Search Engine Optimization firm. I'll be writing web content for a variety of different businesses. For instance, this crazy website, BikerFan.com, for whom I wrote descriptions of motorcycle helmets with NFL logos!

So drop by The Sconz, drop me a line, or meet up with me for a beer and a Plaza burger, no joke. Long Live Sconz Nation!

Follow The Sconz on Facebook or Twitter or Google+! And check out the Twitter account for the radio show I produce on WTDY on weekdays from 10-11 a.m. For anonymous tips, questions or criticism, send me an email at jcraver@isthmus.com.
