FYI: TWFE will be on the move! Seriously...

After 2 1/2 years of The Wayne Fontes Experience being an unaffiliated blog, I'm happy to announce I've come to an agreement to write for the Most Valuable Network.

TWFE will be moving to the MVN platform soon, likely by the end of the month. I'll be back to writing about all the Detroit teams regularly, under one roof.

To be honest, I wasn't looking to make any changes with my blogging, and was perfectly content posting here at Blogger, and at SideLion Report for Fan Sided Blogs. But MVN contacted me earlier this week, totally out of the blue. They wanted to take The Wayne Fontes Experience into their fold, and to the next level. They also asked I blog about all Detroit sports, including the Lions, exclusively for them. The opportunity to write for a large, and growing, blog network like MVN, and the exposure they are offering, it was just too much to pass up.

On a sad note, I resigned from my post at SideLion Report with Fan Sided today. They are a great group of bloggers and I wish them all the best.

I've been ignoring TWFE somewhat, my being preoccupied with the Lions at SLR. That's going to change, obviously. I'll be back to posting regularly at TWFE all the way up to the move to MVN's servers.

As you might guess, things are going to be in a state of flux for the next couple of weeks. I'll do my best to keep everyone in the loop as to links, RSS, and the like. The 2+ years of archives will be moved as well.  Obviously, (and, which I now own) will direct to the new location when the dust has finally settled.

So please bear with me and the transition to MVN. It should be interesting. Well, I hope the move isn't interesting...Hell, you know what I mean.

Thanks for reading, and expect plenty of Lions coverage here over the weekend. I need to touch on the Tigers, and their misadventures too!


  1. Good luck and congrats, Big Al! We'll be looking for that new RSS feed!

  2. Thank you, Chip! I'll be sure to keep everyone in the loop, promise!

  3. That's awesome, man! Congrats!

  4. Congrats Al! This is great news and I'm sorry to hear about the great SLR coming to an end.

    However, I'm looking forward to a more focused read on MVN. I think you had a lot on your plate dealing with the two blogs so I'm hoping this will be easier for yourself. All the best!

  5. Thanks Eno and Cliff Huxtable! I've always appreciated your support!

    Jon, you hit the nail on the head. That was a big reason why I agreed to join MVN. Doing 2 blogs isn't easy. Doing 2 QUALITY blogs is even harder. I think SLR was going well, but it was at the expense of TWFE. I'd rather write one good, fun to read blog, than 2 mediocre ones.

  6. Before you make the move... can you give us a little snarky lovin' for the Lions' latest masterstroke: signing Drew Henson?
