End of the crime blog.

Posted: July 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

Getting inside the crime beat.

I had a great time running this crime blog the past couple years, but unfortunately a move back in January off the crime beat and away from reporting has made it impossible to devote the time to the blog I once did.

Some of you probably already noticed the past several months have had far fewer posts than I once posted when I would do a few a day.

So unfortunately this will be the final post on my Santa Fe Crime blog. Thank you all for reading. The numbers were surprisingly good for a crime blog like this so I hope it is continued in some form by someone down the road.

On to the next adventure…

    Hate to see you go.

  2. Oana says:

    Thank you for writing, great work! It is nice to be informed of what’s happening in the area and how the stories ended. Best of luck in the future endeavours, sir!

  3. David says:

    Thanks Geoff. You’ll be missed. Hopefully someone will continue with a local blog which often goes deeper than what the newspaper offered.

      Goeff – Thanks for your take on crime. I agree w/ David, you brought it further than those before you. Doing a great job with the e-version. Keep up the good work!

  4. Thank you! I wish you the best… we hate to see you go 😦

    I guess I’ll never quite understand what newspapers have become in the past 5-8 years. Why on earth would the Santa Fe New Mexican ever even consider taking their best reporter like you were away from writing stories? Who was writing more front page articles than you (or even close)? Isn’t that sort of the core of what a newspaper is — the stories? Without those, who cares what the crappy website looks like?

    How taking you away from writing was a good business decision in somebody’s mind is probably a good indication why your paper’s staff size isn’t increasing or even stabilizing but instead continues to dwindle. I can think of several other reporters who would have been way better options to stick in a web editor job if it meant they didn’t write anymore. And to hear you’re now leaving for another newspaper, well that sort of validates my opinion of the decision the paper made to take you away from reporting in the first place. Your value was in your reporting and in all the sources around town I know you made that learned to trust you when they didn’t trust anyone else.

    Good luck with your next job. Albuquerque’s gain is Santa Fe’s loss and definitely another big blow to that shrinking newspaper the New Mexican. You’ll be missed.
