Colorado Luis calls it quits

Colorado Luis, one of my favorite state-focused blogs, is calling it a career.

This blog has been around since August 2003 and now it is time to close. Back when I started, there were few state level blogs and people were more willing to put up with sporadic posting and just plain missing big events. People’s expectations are justifiably a lot higher now with the rise of group blogs like Soapblox Colorado and professional sites like ProgressNow Action and PLAN Blog, which I didn’t get to plug enough since it launched. I don’t have enough time to maintain a worthy Colorado political blog, and actually I am undertaking some off-line projects that (hopefully) will leave me with even less time.

We state-focused bloggers have come a long way since 2003 – I’ve lost count of how many such Texas-based blogs there are now. The amount of coverage of the 2005 Legislative sessions alone was mind-boggling and very, very useful. Obviously, that’s all a good thing, at least as far as I’m concerned. Heck, there’s been enough growth in this industry to warrant its own Koufax Award. (No, I didn’t make it to the finals. But there’s no shame in losing to this fine bunch of competitors.)

Be that as it may, I’m sad to see Luis go. I was a fan of his site from its debut, and I’ll miss his writing. Guess I’ll have to give Soapblox Colorado a look. Thanks for all the good blogging, Luis, and best of luck in the future.
