After 2,055 consecutive days of blogging, I'm taking a break. Tomorrow, for the first time since March 2, 2011, I'm not posting anything on LucidSportsFan.com.
I originally started this site at the suggestion of someone who enjoyed my sports takes on Facebook. A good friend of mine urged me to write something "at least once a day," so I stuck with that philosophy. I soon discovered that I might be able to use it as a tool to help me pursue a career outside of bartending (which I officially announced my retirement from on Thursday). Because of this blog, I was gradually able to write for (and later edit/manage) bigger and bigger sites until I eventually built up a legitimate resume. Throughout that time, daily posts on LucidSportsFan.com were what kept me motivated.
In a week, I'll be starting a new full-time job as Creative Copywriter for WHOOP. I can't say for sure what my plan is for the blog going forward, but I do know that it's time to take a day off.
