\par \par As fans of the site have noticed, the Draft Daddy blog has not been active recently. We are currently suspending blog activities until further notice.

\par \par The reason for this outage was technical difficulties, but taking time away from the blog, we have decided that this is a good time to put it on the shelf.

\par \par When we first started this blog almost 15 years ago, there was no Twitter or Reddit. There were only a handful of draft sites, not the hundreds there are now, and our purpose was to find the best news stories on the internet and present a curated batch of links daily for the loyal community of scouts, agents, front office personnel and hardcore draft fans who took the time to bookmark our site. However now people get their news from social media (and we do it too, see our Twitter "Hall Of Fame").

\par \par When we first started this blog there also were no ad blockers. We never accepted subscription or any fee for our site, instead relying purely on ads to support the site. We have always been a free site. However, with the dawn of ad blockers, our revenue has shrunk to tiny levels. The death blow has come recently as Google has shut down our ability to sell links directly. Without those streams of income, it becomes impossible for the site to break even.

\par \par We are reluctant to call this goodbye as the site will still exist and provide new mock drafts for the duration of the draft season. However, we have yet to make permanent plans for the return of the draft blog (but we aren't ruling anything out). We are currently re-evaluating this site for the future.

\par \par Thank you so much to the fans, the families of these prospects, to the friends of the site, who have helped us along the way. We all love the draft as much as anyone and perhaps it is a sign that this is all happening the year the draft moves to Philadelphia, the city in which the DD servers reside. This year we plan to just enjoy the draft as fans. Whatever the future holds, the last fifteen years have been amazing.

\par \par All the best,

\par -Matt Bitonti & Chris Caple
