For Now........

Having thought long and hard about this in recent weeks, I have realised I can't commit the time required to keep A United View going. I really enjoy writing, but increasing work commitments and family priorities means that thought of posts and ideas haven't made it to screen.

I have really enjoyed the interaction that blogging has brought. It has introduced me to several Blades I am glad to now call friends and introduced me to several other writers some of whom I have shared a pint with. It has enabled opportunities to appear in print and contribute to an anthology of football writing. I have written for other websites, in several matchday programmes and even made an appearance on local television. It has had negatives as well, putting yourself in the public domain can attract negative comments (which I can take) but also abuse (there are block buttons, but I would be lying if I said it was easy to ignore).

For now though I have other things I want and need to do. A United View maybe resurrected at some point in the future, but it seems best to put some closure on the site. Thank you for reading, sharing, retweeting, +1ing and interacting over the last 5 years, it has been a good run. And............
