TWFE's last post...at Blogger

Updated February 2014: I've long ago fully transitioned to baseball writing. I'm currently a managing editor at Bless You Boys, SB Nation's Detroit Tigers site, where I post on a daily basis and produce a weekly podcast.  The Knee Jerks podcast is still going strong as well, and will hit its five-year anniversary in May of this year.

Being this site covered a unique time in Detroit sports (Specifically the resurgence of the Tigers and Matt Millen destroying the Lions), the original TWFE archives will remain online as long as Google keeps Blogger alive. Plus, by leaving these ancient scrolls up, I might make enough in Ad Sense dollars to be able to get my cash from Google by the next century, give or take a few decades.  

As for TWFE?  

Well, TWFE is no more. I shuttered the Bloguin version of the site in early 2013, after I had stopped posting in September of 2012. With Bless You Boys going gangbusters, I realized I just didn't have the time or energy to devote to TWFE. So I allowed the WayneFontes.com domain to expire in July 2013. It was my way of moving on. 

Regardless, it was a very good run for TWFE. I was lucky enough to start this site in the nascent days of sports blogging, and as in all things in life, timing is everything. This site allowed me to do things I honestly never imagined back in January 2006, such as getting paid for my writing. But TWFE has served its purpose, allowing me to concentrate on other opportunities. 

As a wise bartender once said, "Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end."  TWFE has ended.


RIP The Wayne Fontes Experience, 2006-2013.

Update 9/2010: You've stumbled upon the archives of version 1.0 of TWFE. I've left the posts up for posterity's sake, but the blog proper has moved on to the Bloguin network. The Blogger era of TWFE is no more, but I'm still on the web. The Wayne Fontes Experience remains in business, posting daily about the Detroit Lions at WayneFontes.com. I'm also an editor at the SBNation Detroit Tigers blog, Bless You Boys, and co-host a weekly Detroit sports podcast, The Knee Jerks.

See you around the internets!

It's taken the weekend (and then some) to get the migration done, there's been a few headaches along the way (which is why I did no Lions commentary Sunday) and we're not out of the woods yet, but The Wayne Fontes Experience is officially under the MVN wing. (As of August 2009, TWFE is a proud member of the Bloguin network) (As of 2013, TWFE is no longer in existence, save for these Blogger archives)

This is a huge change, and I'll be learning a new blogging platform, Movable Type, to boot. So I'm warning you now, it may be a bumpy ride!

I haven't decided what, if anything, I'll do with the content here at Blogger. It'll remain up for the time being, as MVN has just the last 10 months of my archives.

As for new content being posted over at MVN, it may be spotty for a few days. I'm going to try and write tonight, just to get something new up. But I'm undergoing a medical "procedure" tomorrow morning, and I seriously doubt I'll feel like writing tomorrow. I anticipate things should be back up to a semblance of speed by the coming weekend.

A couple of reminders...

The official TWFE URL: http://waynefontes.com

The new RSS feed: http://waynefontes.com/rss.xml http://waynefontes.com/feed/rss.html

I appreciate your patience.

I'll see you at the same blog, just in a different place.
