This is the end.

Sorry folks, but after much consideration, I've decided to end PerfectParanoia.com.  It's one of the toughest decisions I've ever had to make, but the right decision's often are.

In the beginning, the site was just a little game to me, something fun to take my mind off troubles at work and home.  But it turned into an unexpected success, and only masked my troubles for a while.

When my daughter was born prematurely, I should have spent more time with my family, and instead I used the site as an escape.  I sacrificed time with my family for time with the site.  I did it when I changed jobs and moved, and through all the ups and downs life has thrown us since.

I'm not complaining.  I chose my road, just as I am choosing it now.  I'll turn 30 next year, and it's a pretty silly thing to be doing when I have such a wonderful wife who supported this hobby despite its costs.  I'm sad to be quitting, but once I get used to it, I'm sure my life will improve.  I might even regain my passion for racing.  Perhaps after I get used to being an ordinary fan for a while, I'll remember why I started the site in the first place and it'll refresh my desire to write.  Maybe that book I've been longing to write will come to fruition.

I've met a lot of wonderful people through the site.  Some are behind the scenes in racing, and some are just fans with loud voices.  I'll miss you all.

Take care and God Bless!
