I just wanted to make a very minor mention of this, since it's probably of little interest to anyone but myself. But today is actually somewhat of an anniversary, since Mondesi's House was born four years ago on this day with the first-ever post, The 10 Worst McClatchy/Nutting Pirates Moves. Imagine that...I was so frustrated with the Pirates four summers ago that it served as the inspiration for a blog. With that being the case, I'd imagine a number of Pirate blogs got started after last night's game.
Things have changed a bit over the years, but it's been a truly enjoyable experience, covering the ups and downs of Pittsburgh sports and meeting a world of people with similar interests (and a similar sense of humor) along the way.
Sometimes, running the site can be a challenge due to time constraints, but all-in-all, it's a labor of love. My hope has always been to create something that's unique, user-friendly, and regularly updated, a place that a fan of any Pittsburgh team could enjoy. That was the goal then and will continue to be the standard for the future.
Mondesi's House would be nothing without the feedback, emails, comments, and contributions from the readers, for without your support the site would not exist. As always, the door is open for your thoughts on Mondesi's House and its direction (firstname.lastname@example.org or @mondesishouse on Twitter). I'd like to thank all of you for making the past four years so much fun, and I promise that the best is yet to come.
