As you can see things have changed here at BDHS. A while back I was approached by The Score with a proposal to join their new blogging network. My original response was that I was flattered but not interested. Writing this blog is a hobby, one that I enjoy very much, and I had no desire to be beholden to The Man anymore then I already am.
Stupid The Man.
After some thought and discussions I changed my mind. I was assured that there would be no extra demands on my time and that I would be allowed to write as I always have. I have always wanted to write but have neither the work ethic nor the talent, to be honest, to do it for a living, so the thought of actually writing for a bigger audience is pretty exciting to me. Add to that the opportunity of hopefully showing more Oiler fans that there is a lot of great writing on the Oilers out there that they are missing out on and I decided to take the plunge.
(I apologize in advance if the sites out on the Oilogosphere are suddenly flooded by *LOL Schremp is hot OMG* comments.)
It appears that I have truly sold out as not only am I making money off of this but I am sleeping with the enemy.
I hope that if you're a regular visitor that you will continue to drop by and not be put off by the ads and banners. If you are a newcomer to the site, welcome. Try to show some respect in your comments for the process here, including your fellow commenters. Check out the sites on the right of the page. There's some terrific stuff there and I guarantee that you will be entertained and educated if you take the time to check them out.
Finally I'd be an ass if I didn't point out that if you have a blog or website and you link to me there to make a note in the comments so that I can add you to my blogroll. I am making money from this, if not a lot, and if you are sending people my way so that I end up buying a pint or two off of this then the least I can do is reciprocate.
