It is with a very heavy heart that I write this, but effective immediately, Mondesi's House will be going on an indefinite hiatus. I know many of my longtime readers have noticed that I have not been posting with the same frequency or the same enthusiasm I had in the past, and it is no coincidence. The truth is that I have a member of my family who has been battling an illness for quite some time and needs my assistance and care now more than ever. With that as a constant storyline in my life, in addition to the stress of operating a business full time, I hope you can understand where I'm coming from.
I will not be able to post right now, and I'm not sure when exactly I will return. I do know that I want to continue operating the site in the future, as I have put nearly five years of my life into building it. Unfortunately, I simply did not have the available time or energy to continue it at a level I was satisfied with, and that will certainly not change very soon.
I want to thank each and every one of you for your support over the years, which really meant the world to me. At its peak, I'd like to think the site was something that brought a lot of entertainment and information to people. I know it hasn't been the same for quite some time now, and I doubt it will ever get back to the level it once was, but I can say that I do love to write and I love the city of Pittsburgh and our sports teams. Once I feel I can produce something I'd be proud of again, I will return. I don't know when that will be, but it will happen.
In the meantime, I'll be available through email and Twitter, and when the day arrives that I do come back, you can rest assured that I will put the word out. But for now, just keep my family in your thoughts and prayers and that will mean more to me than you would ever imagine.
