A Requiem for Gridskipper

Gridskipper used to be a kickass travel blog. But, the guys at Gawker wanted to “rationalize” its portflio of blogs, and Gridskipper’s performance wasn’t enough to keep it in the family. It’s a damned shame. Now that Gridskipper is part of the Curbed family, there aren’t as many updates. Most of the content consists of links to other stories; there isn’t much original content to go with it. So, the cut the best part of Gridskipper.

Maybe someday they’ll link to a few more of my articles. They had a link to a piece I wrote for Cigar Report on De La Concha’s cigar dinners, but it got lost in the conversion from Gawker to Curbed, much to my chagrin. But, such is life. Fuck ’em.
