Yes, I know the bylines here are very small. And I know the masthead that I asked my site designer, Spencer Hall, who has built the look of this site from the ground up for absolutely no money and deserves favorable mention from me at any possible time I can give it to him, to have removed a few minutes ago said “By John Krolik.” (If any of you remember, the pre-Spencer site looked like garbage, and for some reason, none of the post titles could have capital letters in them.)
However, it should be pretty clear by now that while I was the only person writing here for a while, that is now anything but the case. I should have had the masthead changed when Tom Pestak first came aboard as links editor, but I am lazy and didn’t want to bother Spencer, because, again, he does everything for free and I feel guilty asking him to do things.
I am making this announcement because a a lot of people on twitter and in the comments section thought I wrote Colin’s piece from last night, which was called “the best thing anyone’s written in a while,” “maybe my (meaning John Krolik’s) best post,” and “John Krolik at his best.” Obviously, that is something I’d like to avoid in the future. Sometime when it isn’t midnight, I’ll probably set up a separate twitter account for Cavs: The Blog so that every article doesn’t tweet under my twitter handle, and I’m already making some site fixes that I should have made months, if not years ago, to make it more obvious that this blog is now very much a team operation.
Tom, Ryan, Colin, Kevin, and Mo have all done or are doing tremendous work for this site, and deserve far more credit for whatever cache it holds at this current moment than I do, to say the least. It makes me very sad when they do not get the credit they deserve for a piece they write so please: even though they’re small read the byline on each piece written on this blog. Thank you for your patience. As a reward, here is the trailer for The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. Karen O is awesome. Now go read Colin’s piece and realize that he wrote it.
