Change is a good thing. Today will mark the last day we will be posting on the Grit Tree. This doesn’t mean we are going away; we have a great opportunity to partner up with the fine folks at Bulldawg Illustrated and will start providing content on the blog at their site. It will still be labeled Grit Tree, so you can still find us over there. We are excited about all the possibilities our new home can offer. But you won’t find content at this site any longer.
We started this blog on September 1, 2009. We all sat around and talked football year round, and decided, “Instead of just talking about it, why don’t we do a blog?” When coming up with a name, we wanted to do something different to make ourselves stand out from the dozens of other Dawg blogs out there. We all decided our blog would be more than Georgia football; we wanted to pay homage to Lewis Grizzard. We also wanted to do reviews of BBQ restaurants. Having BBQ Thursday-and going around the state eating good BBQ-was more fun than writing anything about the Dawgs.
We found inspiration from his famous column Great Moments in a Would Be Father’s Life¸ and it became a tradition of ours to post it the Wednesday before the first football game.
This isn’t technically our last post. The final post here will be the Lewis column that gave us our inspiration so if anyone ever stumbles on www.grittree.wordpress.com, they will see Lewis’ best article, and the one article that accurately sums up what it means to be a Bulldog.
It has been a fun ride here. Thank you for reading, commenting, and supporting our little hobby. We look forward to continue posting very soon over at our new home at http://www.bulldawgillustrated.com/.
