Sometimes reversing course isn’t a bad decision, it’s just a decision.
A few months ago I decided to delete my retired Detroit Tigers blog, The Daily Fungo. I haven’t posted anything to it since 2017 and I didn’t like that it was languishing out there gathering digital dust.
I started the blog in 2006 and wrote there consistently for 11 or so years. Then I ran out of gas and out of interest.
Over the past couple of years, my friend Ian had to withstand a quarterly series of text messages about whether or not I should pull the plug altogether or just leave it alone.
This year I chose the permanent-delete option and forwarded the Daily Fungo’s domain to its equally comatose Twitter account.
And everything was fine.
Until this week.
At some point in the past few days I realized that there’s no point in having all of the work I put into the site (with an occasional assist from Ian and my friend Doug) just sit on my hard drive.
So, I resurrected the blog today. And, instead of feeling neglectful of a blog with thousands of aging posts on it, I feel happy knowing it’s out there for whoever stumbles on it during a Google search.
A good decision methinks.
