The following is a letter from Top Bar Media manager, Bryan Rothamel:
Oh, we are here again, huh?
Last year we restarted Fluco Blog because the market was there for us. We were wildly successful, very quickly. It was clear you missed Fluco Blog and a void needed to be filled. It was convenient in my life too because I missed it.
We took the market by storm. Our growth was exponential. It was a blast.
But I just can’t do Fluco Blog anymore. You’ve probably noticed updates have been fewer and further apart.
My week is filled with my full-time job and now I am heavily involved with my church as the youth group leader and elder. And most recently I expanded my broadcasting schedule.
I still have good news though. I will continue to report for the Free Enterprise Forum. I hope you follow along there.
In regards to my church, if you are looking for a church home we’d love to have you. We have you join us sometime. You can watch our services on YouTube or you can visit us at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Charlottesville.
My broadcasting schedule recently increased because I am now doing play by play for VISAA.tv and ODAC.tv. This past fall I was the play by play man for JDSportsTV.com. All three are very exciting and I hope to add a few more gigs to the bunch.
If you want to keep up with what I am doing, I encourage you to find me on Facebook or Twitter. I keep my friends and followers up to date with where and what I am doing. Plus every now and then I throw in a joke people like.
When Fluco Blog finally shuts down this time, it will be it. There will be no return next year. I am finished. I accomplished more than I thought I could or would.
Fluvanna, it has been a lot of fun but it is time for me to do other things on a more permanent basis. I last ‘retired’ because I was tired. This time I’m doing it because I’m just too busy. There is no more Michael Jordan or Brett Favre in me. Twice was enough now.
I do hope you keep up with my reporting on Free Enterprise Forum. I will continue my government reporting there. I will still be your go to source for Fluvanna government news.
I’m grateful for your support. I hope you also will support more recent projects with broadcasting and Free Enterprise Forum.
Over these final months of 2013, I’ll work on wrapping up Fluco Blog. I don’t know the official date but expect it in early November. It’ll just disappear like it appeared four years ago this October.
Thank you for your time. I hope to see you around Fluvanna and on the interwebs!
