SportsBlogs Nation Gets Funding

I'm not sure how many of you check out the Sports Business Journal on a daily basis, but I figured I would call this story about SportsBlogs Nation to your attention.  Yes, the humble company that I started back in November of 2003 (AN will be five years old in just nine days) has blossomed into a thriving new media company with funding.

I'm very thankful and lucky to be associated with the quality of people and blogs that we have here.  This funding is just going to enable us to do a lot of things like further iterate on our magnificent technology.  I take it as a great sense of pride that this entire company started with this community and you should too.  If it wasn't for the success and passion of A's fans, SportsBlogs Nation would have never gotten to this point.

The funny thing is that I've never, in my life, worked as hard as I have on this company (my wife would very quickly attest to that) and yet, I've never had as much fun doing anything in my life either.  I realize how lucky I am to be working on something I love and feel so much passion for.

Thank you so much, AN, for helping give birth to SportsBlogs Nation.  It wouldn't be what it is without you.
