It saddens me to report that the five year journey of The Stake is at an end. We are shuttering in three weeks.
The Stake was much more successful than I ever dreamed it would be when I had the idea to run an MSP-based, national interest pop culture website. Much of that is credit to Andrew DeYoung, who came on at the start as co-editor and gave us his best for a couple years, before leaving to write a book and win a MN Book Award (Buy it, read it).
Together, and much to my surprise, Andrew and I built something that people actually wanted to read. Lots of people.
But now, it’s time to come to an end.
Thank you all. I’m grateful you took an interest in this little website from the midwest, and it warms me to know that folks enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed managing it.
Take care of yourself, take care of your loved ones, and I’ll see you on the beach.
