On February 7, 2012, I wrote an introduction to myself as editor at Go Joe Bruin.
On February 6, 2013, I bid you farewell.
I’m leaving Go Joe Bruin to take over FanSided’s general college football site, Saturday Blitz with fellow college football nut Kyle Kensing. While it’s difficult for me to leave this site — it’s the longest I’ve ever written on one place and, by far, it’s the most success I’ve ever had in Internet writing — I think the gig at Saturday Blitz is a damn good one, both for myself and for this network.
Over the past year, I’ve built a name for myself and this site is showing budding signs of becoming a serious, dedicated community. Site regulars, such as c2blum, grateful_bruin, George B, etc, have seen the value of this site as a place to talk UCLA football, UCLA hoops and UCLA athletics in general. On Twitter, @GoJoeBruinUCLA, I’ve managed to build a dedicated community that interacts with some of the most hilarious people I’ve ever met.
This site has broken records consistently and has gotten better at producing clean content, smart analysis and cheeky jokes (as well as awful ones).
This has been absolutely fun and I hope you guys read me at Saturday Blitz as I paint myself as a know-it-all college football zealot, much like I did with UCLA athletics.
I leave this blog in good hands, though. The guy that’s coming in is a familiar face. You’ll love him.
GO MOTHERFREAKING BRUINS.
