I Am Thankful…. For All of You! (by Paul Semendinger)

I am thankful for this Yankees or baseball memory….

Twenty five months ago, I had this idea to assume the responsibility for running this Yankees blog. It has been a wonderful and very special experience.

The success of this blog comes because of you – our readers. Thank you for reading our words, for sharing you love of baseball, and for your loyal following.

I am thankful that we have become so popular. I hear, all the time, that our blog is so many people’s favorite Yankees blog. Those words mean so much to me. So, so much. Keeping this thing going takes a ton of time every single day, but it’s a labor of love. I love writing, I love sharing, and I love the interactions with all of you.

Thank you for stopping by each day. Thank you for helping to make us so successful.

This blog wouldn’t be what it is without the work of so many. On this day of Thanksgiving I’d like to thank all of the following people who helped to make Start Spreading the News a reality and who wrote, offered guest posts, and/or supported us in different ways along the way. Each of these people is part of the SSTN community. I am thankful for each of you…
