Brett’s Contributions Going Forward

by Brett Schulte on January 23, 2009 · 4 comments

After finding out quite a bit of what goes into caring for a newborn baby over the past three months, I’m finally ready to dip my toes back into the waters of Civil War blogging. I am VERY happy that the TOCWOC group blog concept worked as I had intended during this time. I appreciate the efforts of all of the other TOCWOC contributors, especially Fred Ray and Jim Durney, while I was away. I’m confident this blog will continue to produce quality content in this type of situation when it inevitably arises in the future.

Going forward, I plan to take a realistic approach to what I can contribute to the blog in any given week. I promise one post per week. I’m not going to promise one LENGTHY post, one book review, or any other promise which would prove impossible to keep. Instead, I want to ease back into blogging as time, what little of it there is currently, permits. As my son Brock gets older I may be able to increase my posting frequency somewhat. As it stands now, I want to enjoy this first (and hopefully not last!) go round as a parent as much as possible. I DO plan to post book reviews from time to time, considering I owe quite a few to publishers from prior to my son’s birth. I’ll continue to post Civil War Talk Radio summaries, one of which you should see posted shortly. I also hope to SLOWLY catch up on my Civil War magazine summaries, though that might prove to be a difficult task. In summary, rather than be the main poster here at TOCWOC, I hope to be an active contributor on a level hopefully somewhat near where Fred Ray is currently at. I’ll leave you with a little picture of just who has been keeping me busy these last three months…

Fine looking boy you’ve got there. Brock Schulte…the 2026 starting QB for Notre Dame.

LOL. I could get used to that!

Congrats on your son. Instead of playing for ND, how about being the starting pitcher for the Cardinals ;). Take care man.
