Is This the End of Goldblog?

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Some home news: In the all-good-things-must-come-to-an-end department (and, for those of you non-fans out there, in the all-bad-things-must-come-to-an-end department), Goldblog is going away. Not today, but shortly. I've decided to spend more time focusing on my column at Bloomberg View. I've found it difficult to divide my online work between The Atlantic and Bloomberg View, and this seemed like an obvious way to bring some clarity and order to my life.

The good news (or, again, bad news, depending on where you sit) is that Atlantic readers will still have me to kick around. I'm going to continue to write stories for The Atlantic itself (for the big enchilada, the print magazine), which makes me very happy, because I've been so proud to be affiliated with this magazine, which is one of history's all-time greats. TheAtlantic.com is also wonderful, though not yet one of history's all-time greats, because it's like 10 minutes old.

Anyway, when I started-up Goldblog (I'm not sure who gave it that name -- it might have been me, or Andrew Sullivan, or the Knesset), shortly after the end of the Civil War, I never thought I would have the energy to keep it going for as long as I have. Several thousand posts later, here we are. Watch this space for further developments. I'm not disappearing yet. Later, I'll thank my editors, lawyers, agents, and especially the people who have explained to me 600 times how to post pictures in this space.
