Why this has been neglected

As you're probably aware if you've read my blog recently, there hasn't been a post since derby day, and that was somewhat short. Anyway, I'm not just being a lazy sod and decided to give up on it (not that there has been anything to shout about), but I've had my mind focused on a more serious project of mine.

For those of you that follow me on twitter, which I assume is most of you, or else you'd probably be not reading this otherwise, you may know that I'm in the process of launching a new Sunderland related website, which focuses on legends, cult heroes, past matches, interviews with ex players and many more features. I first had the idea to start The Roker Light in February 2010, and I got straight to work with the other lad I'm doing this with, Nathan. We hit a few glitches along the way and sort of neglected it for a few month, but I'm pleased to say we're back on track and it's coming along nicely. Hopefully we'll launch in Winter this year, all going to plan.

At the moment, we're in the process of recruiting a full time article team. We have three members currently, but ideally we'd like a couple more. If you're interested in writing for us, please email with a few details about yourself and we'll consider you. As we're focusing on the history of the club, people of an older age would be specifically good to have, however we're open to look at anyone interested.

Please follow @ on twitter for more information and updates about how we're getting on, and after launch, that will be the place we plug our articles and interviews.
