A few weeks ago, I mentioned that I was working in collaboration with a friend on a site focused on board and card gaming, and I also promised to give you guys updates on any progress on the site.
Unfortunately, my friend has made the decision to drop out of the project, mostly out of a desire to not have to commit to any sort of standard writing schedule. The idea of having a set writing schedule, coupled with a sense that he would be letting a friend down if he failed to meet that schedule, made my partner eventually choose to not be involved.
So, what’s next? I’m not interested in launching the site without a partner because, simply put, The Simple Dollar is my top writing priority and I don’t really want to “carry” another site. So, for now, I’m just going to quietly search for a gamer I know who may be interested in writing on such a schedule before we continue to move forward.
One final thing: I loved the design of the site. Loved it.
