My next move
Two years ago, I started up The Daily Axe to cover Stanford sports. Today, I wrote my last post for the site. I don’t need to discuss my decision to stop developing and writing for DA, since you can read about it in my goodbye post. But I do want to talk about—and hopefully get people excited about—where I’m going next.
I’m starting something new, and something that is unapologetically an experiment. It’s called Forgotten Poem. The zeitgeist is in the motto: a home for writing. Basically, I’m asking all of the good writers and thinkers and talkers and internet miners I know to contribute whatever they want to the site. Long form wins the day; there are very few distracting sidebar widgets, no advertisements, and nothing that intends to distract your attention from the words in each piece. There will be sports, politics, personal essays, gems that we found in dusty library books or old websites with low traffic… it’s a hodgepodge. It’s more a dynamic anthology than a magazine-style website, and it’s going to have material other sites wouldn’t publish.
Forgotten Poem launches on September 4, but you can navigate over to ForgottenPoem.com right now. You can sign up for email updates and check out the site’s social media accounts. I think you should check it out, because it’s going to be interesting.
That’s my next move.
