When I released my first post on the blog on 20th. Febuary 2011 I really wasn't sure what to expect! After all, I was aiming to reach a somewhat niche audience.
Well, 949 posts and 7.4 million page-hits later, this blog has greatly exceeded my wildest expectations.
However, I'm now retired and I turned 70 three months ago. I've decided to call it quits, and this is my final post.
I'd rather make a definite decision about this than have the blog just fizzle into nothingness.
For now, the Econometrics Beat blog will remain visible, but it will be closed for further comments and questions.
I've had a lot fun and learned a great deal through this blog. I owe a debt of gratitude to all of you who've followed my posts, made suggestions, asked questions, made helpful comments, and drawn errors to my attention.
I just hope that it's been as positive an experience for you as it has been for me.
Thank you - and enjoy your Econometrics!
