Hey everyone, I just wanted to say thanks to the thousands of loyal readers that sent me well wishes over the last month or so, once word got out that Yahoo was laying me off on Dec. 31.
It is with great humility and pride that I received so many nice and touching e-mails wishing me well -- not to mention all those folks who felt Yahoo was making a mistake. I left Yahoo without burning any bridges, I understood it was a business decision and am moving on. I have remained on friendly terms with everyone back at the old "Y," and there's a possibility I may still do some freelance work in the near future.
But equally, if not more importantly, I am deeply humbled by how virtually everyone who e-mailed me with good wishes also asked how they could follow me to my next outpost and so graciously requested that I inform them when that time came. I have begun to do just that.
I'm currently in the process of doing just that. Of course, sending out so many e-mails is going to take time. That's why most readers will likely get a "form" e-mail informing them of my new home. I'm sure you understand how difficult the logistics are to write individual notes.
And besides, you want my thoughts on NASCAR more than an e-mail letting you know where I've wound up at, right?
For now, I'm focusing most of my energy on a ton of freelance work that I've been offered, as well as trying to finish my long-delayed first book project on, of course, NASCAR (more info to come about that in the coming weeks).
Also, I have spoken with several major media outlets in the last few weeks and it's humbling that not only have I received a great deal of interest, there's a very good likelihood that I will hopefully be announcing my new online home (besides here at jerrybonkowski.com) in the next few weeks.
Thank you all again for your support, faith and good wishes. Now, let's get back to business and racing!
