After more than 50 years of participation in the Scouting Movement, I had to pull back from a lot of my activities due to health issues a couple of years ago. One of the casualties was this web site’s blog. Although I have not been able to update this blog for some time, I have kept the site running so that you can get fresh information from our Ask Andy columns which are published on a regular basis. This week Andy published his 450th advice column.
You may have noticed a change in this site’s appearance. I have removed advertisements from Amazon because Amazon no longer supports advertising on sites that target youth 13 and under. These sites target adult leaders, but we also advertise the U.S. Scouting Service Project’s Internet Scout Patch which is available to all Scouts. While the ad revenue wasn’t much, it helped defray the costs of operating the sites here (hosting, etc.).
Will this site stay in operation? I hope so! I am looking at options for keeping the site alive. Ownership may transition from this being my individual blog on Scouting to a blog operated by the U.S. Scouting Service Project, Inc.
