Necessity, who is the mother of invention. – Plato
As you may have noticed for the last few days, I have not been posting as much as I usually do because necessity requires some invention. No, I am not re-inventing the wheel, but the current troubled times have given me a choice of either shutting down my blog to save myself the hosting fees and time invested, and thereby freeing up my schedule to try to work nights doing God knows what, OR turning my blog into a more newsy site that has sponsors and advertisers. As you may have guessed, I’m going with the latter.
The idea and format behind the Monster was initially perfect for the type of venting diary that blog formats are so well known for, but times have changed and Logistics Monster needs to get off the porch and run with the big dogs. We have never seen times such as these with the gambit of news that is bombarding us from every different angle. Trying to keep up with Congress, the White House, Government Corruption, Climate Change, Lobbyists, Big Business, Banks, and Barney Frank in a blog format is like wearing a straightjacket.
In keeping with the need for a more inclusive format that is faster, leaner, yet more robust, Logistics Monster will be changing it’s format on January 1st, 2010, and is now currently looking for sponsors and/or advertisers. Currently, the Monster has had 4,401,526 hits since it’s move to WP on July 16, 2008, and advertising on LM offers the opportunity to reach a current daily average of over 6000 unique visitors. If your company or organization is interested in reaching a wider audience, please contact me at DiamondTiger@logisticsmonster.com.
I want to, once again, thank my loyal readers who have continued to stop by, comment, and suggest improvements to the Monster over the months. I have been truly blessed to stand next to you during these trying times, and welcome you to the next part of the journey. Hele Mai!
