After 18 months, nearly 750 posts, and over 9,000 comments, this will be the final post for Kevin Marshall’s America in the Times Union blogosphere.

It’s been an interesting and fun ride, mostly due to the readers I’ve encountered both in the digital realm and those that have done me the small courtesy of making themselves known to me in public and giving me the great compliment of saying they’ve spent a little time reading all the musings and missives in this space.

In addition the readers, thanks goes to the Times Union and its interactive audience manager/Blog Czar, Mike Huber.

It’s not the end of the blog. Kevin Marshall’s America will continue over, along with some other things in the pipeline coming through that I’m very excited about and am eager to share with you.

So don’t think of it as you waving goodbye to me tearfully from a dock as I board a ship departing for the other side of the world, never to be seen again. Rather, think of it as you waving goodbye to the aforementioned ship while I scream “HEY DOOFUS, I’M RIGHT OVER HERE” from ten feet away.

As far as the Times Union and I go, though, this is a final goodbye. So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    Enjoy the good times to come at your own .com! “If you were 50 years younger”, would you have made this move sooner? (Yeah… lame reference to last weekend’s fight…)

    Good call, braü. It’s your content, you should have 100% control over it. Sell your own add space, make a buck.

    I’d say I’ll miss you, but I have no plans of doing so.

    Hope you come out kicking ass and taking names!

    Perfect last line!

    P.S. I’ve already added your new blog to my Google Reader. Don’t make me regret it, Marshall. *shakes fist threateningly, then scampers off after something shiny*

    you always provided an interesting perspective on current topics and while I did not follow you relegiously, I always appreciated what I felt was the honesty of your point of view.
    good luck.
