Picket Fence Announcement

I like to think of Picket Fence as more than a tennis blog, but rather a forum for chatter and silliness and the occasional giggle. Over the years, I’ve tried to make this site more personal than ‘newsworthy’, which is why I would be remiss if I didn’t update you on some personal developments in my life.

As most of you already know, I am about to set off on a trip around the world to study, travel, watch a bit of tennis and enjoy my last semester of a marathon tertiary education. Yes, tough life, but somebody’s gotta live it. 😉

The flip side of this is that unfortunately, travelling isn’t conducive to following tennis. At least not in a way that requires constant upkeep of this blog while I’m trying to sample all that the world has to offer. So I have decided to go on blogging hiatus for the next 6 months. As for what happens to this site after that, I will have to reassess once I get back. As much as this site has been a huge part of my life, it has also eaten away chunks of my time, and seems increasingly at odds with my career choices. It’s a sad, but realistic assessment of my situation right now. If only there was such a thing as “tennis law” …

In the meanwhile, All I need is a picket fence will go into caretaker mode. I have entrusted my slice of cyberspace to the hands of some familiar interweb pals of mine, who will be guest blogging here in my absence. I’m sure they’ll be introducing themselves soon.

As for myself, don’t worry. I’ll still be around: commenting, twittering, and sending you some updates from tennis tournaments I plan to visit on my trip – namely the US Open and the World Tour Finals. Will I be meeting any of you there?

So long, bitches. Time to gobble up this world.
