Current Article Schedule: “What to LOOK For!”

Charles Fischer Editorials Leave a Comment

Can you believe what a cool picture (above) that is featuring Max Unger, Jonathan Stewart, and Dennis Dixon? Unger looks like he is taking aim on the linebacker he is going to cream and has proven with Hroniss Grasu, that agile, athletic offensive linemen can play in the NFL. Fun memories…

My friends, you simply need to know to look for articles on this site on either Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays in the future. There will be many days in a row–that we won’t have an article, or the editorial I write may be on a Monday instead of Sunday, or there may not be an article on Thursday, but articles will usually fall on a Monday, Wednesday, and/or Fridays during the week in the future.

FishDuck exists?

Regardless of other writers that come and go over the years? Mr. FishDuck loves to write, always has something to say, and frankly cannot stay away from a keyboard for long. The intention is to have an article from “The Fish” every week, although it may go two weeks once in a while due to the interference of real-life. But there will usually be something up to read every week.

So no…I am not announcing a decline or shutdown or anything. The site is hopefully going to become an Oregon Football Repository if the funding comes through, via the generosity of readers. I will be working on that with the Web Developer in addition to having fun continuing to write my thoughts about Oregon Football through the year. (Give some thought to helping us out for the benefit of all Oregon fans!)

Take Note of Changes, but FishDuck is Still Here….

My friends, there will only be about 1-3 articles published per week is all, but I will still be writing. So if you see nothing for a few days–keep checking in as articles will come up and I can’t stay away from a keyboard for long.

This hack will still be writing…

Keeping articles published every day takes all my spare time, and I am ready for a normal life again. No vacations since the site began (six and a half years ago) and working seven days a week between two jobs (this and being in investments) is something I cannot sustain.

So, as the writers and editors have moved on from the site (usually after about six months of writing or editing life intervenes and they can’t anymore) –no replacements were recruited and trained, and we are now seeing much less content as a result.

It is a lifestyle decision that had to be made, and I cannot convey how having an all-volunteer site of this magnitude for so long is much harder than it looks. A couple of hundred former writers and editors can attest to that, as learning how to write for this venue, learning Associated Press style, and the massive amount of technology is formidable. (I had to create over 40 instructional documents and videos for writers and editors!)

But I will be here writing each week, so keep checking in as I have some tasty articles planned in the near future, and we will ponder the path of Oregon’s glorious future … together.

I love our Beloved Ducks and fellow Oregon fans,
