PITB Buys In


A little over four years ago, Harrison and I brought Pass it to Bulis to the Vancouver Sun. As of today, our partnership with the Sun has come to an end. The newspaper industry is going through a great deal of change. Until now, that's been a good thing for us. This time it wasn't.

A lot has changed for us as well in those four years. I now have two sons and a third likely to be born within the next two weeks. Harrison moved to Vancouver. These are both very expensive changes. Harrison would argue equally expensive. Harrison is a dope.

Since PITB is not longer at the Sun, we are no longer being paid to write about the Canucks. This may just be a temporary state of affairs, however. 

This doesn't mean we'll stop. We enjoy what we do, and we've simply worked too hard to let PITB die. It will likely mean less content for a little while, as we need to find ways to feed kids/pay for outrageously expensive Vancouver housing.

We feel a little like GaladrielWe will diminish, and go into Blogspot, and remain Pass it to Bulis.

For the time being, we're back where we began five years ago. We hope you'll continue to read and support us as we figure out the next step.

    1. commiserations on losing the paid gig. that must smart and i hope that you both find a successful new future. also, pitb leaving the paper leaves one less reason to bother looking at the Sun from now on.
    2. kudos for deciding to carry on with the blog. that takes some courage to carry on with it at a time of major change.
    3. the links all around this post are like a timewarp. please say that we are back with the 2010-11 team as it time travels into 2016 to take on the 2016 bruins in the finals? please?

  3. What's going to happen to the content that's currently on the Sun side? Will it just... Disappear, or something?

  5. Sorry about the news. I hope this is just a temporary setback for your Canucks writing careers. I started reading PITB back during the blogspot days so this is a bit of deja vu. If I remember correctly your awesome Daniel Sedin Christmas poem came from the ole blogspot days. : )
