The rebirth of the Baseball Continuum

Well, as you noticed, I’m back. Yes, the Baseball Continuum is back. I know that I’ve said that before, but this time it is for real. At least, to a certain degree of real.

So first I’ll be up front about it: I won’t be doing stuff every day. Maybe not even every week. But going forward, I want to have a steadier output of material. Sometimes it will be based on what’s going on in baseball, sometimes it’ll be about what I see online baseball-wise, sometimes it may have something to do with baseball history, and sometimes it might not be baseball-based at all.

And, of course, I’ll try to have some of my more “famous” (for lack of a better word) features like “Bizarre Baseball Culture” and “Breaking OOTP.” Only time will tell, however.

So, yes, the Baseball Continuum is back. So stick around.


New Link: My World Of Baseball

A new addition to the blogroll, which I have long went to but never have placed into the list of links for one reason or another: My World of Baseball. The webmaster there covers and gives opinions on baseball both internationally and domestically (especially prospects).

Check it out.

Neat Link: Chinese Baseball

A new link in the Blogroll: Chinese Baseball. As the name suggests, it’s a look at the nascent baseball scene in the world’s most populated country. This year (2014), they had their first professional baseball in several years, with a very short 12-game season amongst 4 teams.

Check it out.


The Baseball Continuum $ells Out

You probably will have noticed that there are now more ads here at the Continuum. Well, that’s no surprise, as I have asked WordPress to move me up to the “optimized” version of WordAds, which means that the site will have more ads and (hopefully) I’ll get a bit more money. As always, I’d like to note that this change is not due to any type of greed but rather as a way of improving the Continuum itself, with proceeds going back towards the site, such as paying hosting fees, keeping certain softwares and equipment in order, and perhaps acquiring items for future Bizarre Baseball Culture use.

In addition, you’ll notice that the main header image at the top of the page is gone. This is mainly an aesthetic change to allow for you to see the newest story upon opening the page- otherwise you would have had to scroll down due to the space the top advertisement takes up. In the future, I intend on fiddling around a bit with the theme and perhaps reintroduce the top header image- maybe even a new one entirely- and perhaps get a better format for reading the articles.

If you have any questions or problems, please let me know.
