After four long years and over 700 posts I have decided to hang up my blogging boots. I always said that I would continue to write the blog as long as it was fun, and after my recent two week break it became clear that the blog was more of a chore than a joy. It always surprised me how much time blogging took up! I'm looking forward to going to the Oval without having to take notes on every last wicket and boundary.
It has been fun for the most part. Plenty of ups and downs. When I started out the blog was merely a means by which I could vent my frustrations, so the fact that anyone else ever came to read was a constant source of amazement to me! Thank you to everyone who has commented and engaged with the blog over the years, I hope we'll all continue to support Surrey with gusto.
The Surrey blogging mantle is in fine hands anyway, Lewis Winter writes the Surrey Fan Blog here. I will of course continue to tweet inane rubbish on my @SurreyCricBlog twitter feed so if you want to discuss all issues Surrey cricket related come and find me there. There will also be the occasional blog from me on the ESPNCricinfo County Cricket Supporters Network, here.
