Nearly 100,000 visitors have come to this website and its sister one since I formed this one on Labor Day 2013. We’ve had more than 625,000 page views since inception. For that, I’m really grateful, and blessed beyond measure, to be able to bring this site to you.
This site, as you well know, is based upon information and a social contract between the coaches trusting me enough to get the information out and then me delivering. And we have, time after tireless time. That creates a social contract, a promise of sorts, between me and you. I deliver the results, you keep coming back.
We are waiting on some things today, and waiting is — indeed, as Tom said — the hardest part. Without content to put on the site, there’s less of a reason for you to come visit. I’m seeing social media posts from kids. I’m getting Facebook IMs from parents recapping their own child’s weekend. I’m getting a partial list of dual results, from one event that I’m missing. I’ve got scores from another.
But scores are not content. They give me very little to write about. They certainly don’t tell you who beat whom in what anticipated match that was the highlight of the day.
I’ve offered to help with what’s missing. I’ve even offered to drive — pretty far, as far as that goes — to obtain what’s needed. As soon as I get the missing event, I will work on posting it. If you’re wondering what’s missing, go to the High School schedule page. I’ve noted what I have, and if there’s no note from me, I’m missing that.
In the meantime, there’s Lyman brackets to pull and snip and post (UPDATE: POSTED AT 10:34). There’s #NextLevel work to do. There’s record-keeping to do. There’s my own work to do and my own life events to pursue (example: I have not put up a Christmas tree or other holiday decorating yet). I’m not worrying about filling the time.
I’m worrying about being able to continue to keep the promise to you.
