January 2016 Cape Cod Times Roundup, and an update

I’m not sure how many people still check this blog – at this point I basically just use it for roundups and Best American Sports Writing reviews. But those who do have no doubt noticed the following things:

1) I haven’t posted anything lately.

2) Everything I’ve posted since March 2015 has disappeared.

Well, the sportsblognet hosting server crashed, and it turned out the backup servers were woefully outdated. Long story short, there’s no way to recover what I lost, which amounts to nine monthly roundups (technically eight, as I don’t think I ever published a December 2015 roundup) and a BASW 2014 review.

Everything seems to be running again, so here’s what I’m gonna do. Below you’ll find everything I wrote during January 2016. Starting Saturday I’ll re-publish each of my previous monthly roundups, beginning with March-April 2015 and ending with December 2015 on Feb. 14. The following Wednesday (Feb. 17), I’ll republish the BASW 2014 review (this probably won’t be exactly the same as the original), and look for a new BASW 2000 review on Feb. 24.

From there, I’ll get back to publishing monthly roundups.

Was this a frustrating experience? Sure – having to redo something you already did always is. But sometimes technology fails, and sometimes it fails in such a way that it can’t be saved. Shit happens, and if there’s nothing that can be done about it, staying pissed off is pointless. I’ll backup my own blog more regularly from now on, and if it happens again, I’ll reevaluate.

Anyway, here’s what I wrote in January.
