All good things must come to an end.
Quiet Speculation has been slowly dwindling for some time now, as you have no doubt noticed. There are many reasons for this, but the main reason is that I’ve been working on its successor: Doubling Season! Please read the “Welcome” letter, but I’ll give you the gist. Jon Medina, of MTG Metagame and I, have joined forces to create the single best MTG finance site online today. We’ve got some great contributors onboard, including Doug Linn (who writes Legacy’s Allure on StarCityGames), Chris McNutt ( who regularly does some heavy charting/graphing work on presale prices) and Russell Tassicker, who also writes with me on ManaNation.
Rather than just let this site peter out and die, I’m rolling all of my blogging and writing into Doubling Season. Jon and Russel will be doing the same. Those of us who write for other sites will continue to do so, with no change in quality or quantity of content. All the content on the new site will be exclusive – I don’t believe in regurgitating the same crap over and over again. I’ll leave up this message on QS indefinitely, but all further content will be posted on the Doubling Season page.
I’m entirely sure that this is for the best. Quiet Speculation did it’s job, and it did it well. I’m giving it a proper burial, and it’s being replaced by a bigger, badder, and more elegant site that offers more than QS ever could. Jon and I are positively giddy at the potential of Doubling Season, and I hope that everyone who loved QS will join us over on the new site.
Thanks for a year to remember. I’d be nowhere without the support of my readers, and I hope that Doubling Season ends up with as many great fans as QS had. If you have any questions, comments, or feedback, you know how to get in touch.
See you all on the other side!
