Sadly, The Monkey News Must End

Unfortunately, with my current work load, I am not able to keep up with regular updating of the Monkey News blog. I hate to say it, but I must discontinue this blog for the foreseeable future. I appreciate those that have been faithfully following it, and am sorry to deprive you of your simian news updates. Archives will stay up, and hopefully you can still take some solace with our annual celebration of Monkey Day. Thanks!

Oh no! Please don't take the blog down. Good luck with your work... too bad there isn't a way to generate the articles automatically...

Chris said...

You know, the next best thing to having articles generated automatically is to have a blog with multiple authors...

Chris said...

meaning of course that you should contact me and/or other persons about this possibility (easily done in Blogger)...

That is something that I have considered. Perhaps, if there are others interested in taking up the mantel I would consider it. Responses welcome here.

Hi Casey - I love this blog and read it every day. I'd be more than happy to keep it going in your absence. Let me know and we can take it from there.

A small group of editors, armed with tools such as Google Alerts could handle the daily grind, while you take an Emeritus position.
The world need more Monkey News, not less!
Regardless of your decision - thanks for all your work - love this blog.

With monkeys [sic] prominently in the news this past week, I hope you'd consider allowing some cool people you trust to keep the blog going. It's one of the few things I read that aren't a bummer these days. Even when the stories themselves are kind of sad.

I have enjoyed the site greatly and linked to it often, but understand all too well how real life intrudes. Thanks for all the monkey news and best of luck.

I too hope that you will allow some small group to "guest author" or continue this blog. I enjoy the Monkey News!

I'll gladly help carry on the importance business of collecting monkey news.

at least until Casey goes back to his true life's calling...
