Whew! It never ceases to amaze me how daunting a task producing the magazine is, but we’re done for another year, our 7th producing the mag. It’s great now because we have a ton of content up on the site, and we have a nice head start for the upcoming preseason.
I’m not going to lie to you; it’s been a tough off-season. I bought an office building in early March, and did a ton of legwork getting the building fixed up, plus I’ve been busy training our two new guys, Matt Camp and Joe Dolan. But we’ve been in the building for 5-6 weeks now, the mag is done, and the new guys are quickly getting up-to-speed. We’re going to be set for the 2009 season.
I hope everyone enjoys the mag. I think the content is as good as usual.
Of course, we’re just getting started for 2009. We’ll be producing at least one large feature per week the rest of the summer, for one. I’ll be spending some time this month getting our ducks in a row, which includes our new “Draft Guru” stand-alone draft took program. We’re a little behind in the development, but we’re looking at introducing an initial version late this month. If all goes well, we’ll be fine from there, or worse case we need a few more weeks to tweak it. I’m also still planning on bringing in Mock Drafts to the site, courtesy of myfantasyleague.com. Hopefully we can get rolling with that this month. Incidentally, one of the features of the “Draft Guru” program is the ability to mock draft against yourself, which should be cool.
Otherwise, I’ll be really busy the next 7-8 weeks before all hell breaks lose, but I’ll be chiming in here more often, so keep checking back.
