AstroNews Needs Your Help

April 30, 2012 1 comment

Okay, so here’s the deal…

I need help maintaining this blog. I can’t do this on my own.

Unfortunately, I just don’t have the time to update AstroNews anymore… there are a couple of reasons why…

  1. The number of daily stories seems to be increasing
  2. I’ve been working some very odd hours recently and I just don’t know from one week to the next how much time I’ll have to work on the blog – or even when, for that matter.
  3. I’ve also had to travel for my work and that makes maintaining this blog difficult
  4. My personal time is also becoming more limited and I have to concentrate on other issues first…
  5. I have another blog, and for personal reasons, that blog has become pretty important to me and has to take priority right now.

I’ve thought long and hard about AstroNews and what to do with it… I don’t want to abandon it completely but I can’t keep this blog going by myself.

I know I’ve mentioned this before and unfortunately no one was able to help out… but I’m kinda down to the crunch now.

If there’s anyone out there, amongst the hundreds of people who read this on WordPress, follow the site on Twitter, like it on Facebook or watch for the news in the Windows sidebar gadget, who can help post stories, then please let me know. My email address will follow.

I’m not looking for anyone to take over the site, just to post stories on a completely voluntary basis. I may not be able to get you on the Press Release email distribution list from the American Astronomical Society, but I can forward the emails to you. You can also subscribe to news releases from NASA and check the news on the ESA’s website etc 🙂

So that’s about it… without help, AstroNews will be on hold until a point in the future when I can get it going again.

If you’d like to help, please feel free to email me at astronews.us “at” gmail.com

Thank you for your support,
