Green and Bold: Not Goodbye, See You Later

Green and Bold: Not Goodbye, See You Later

Dear Cheesehead TV community, 

Today's Green and Bold column gives me no pleasure to write, because it's the last one I'll be publishing—for now, anyway. 

Some of you may have seen my announcement on Twitter last week that, beginning on January 29, I'll be starting a new full-time job as the senior sports editor at FanSided:

It's bittersweet news to share, to be sure.

While I'm so excited for my next challenge and have worked really hard to get here, I can't help but thinking about how I got here. It was through opportunities provided to me both at Bleacher Report and also by Jersey Al and Aaron Nagler here at Cheesehead TV that I was able to build a portfolio of work, of which I'm really proud. I wouldn't be in a position to take this next step without them.

But it's also bittersweet to be taking a step back from you all, the Cheesehead TV community and readers. I've been lucky enough to develop online friendships with many of you in the comments section and on Twitter, and, occasionally, in person on my trips to Green Bay. 

There's no question that Cheesehead TV is one of the best sports fan communities online, and it's a hard one to leave. 

Perhaps some day I'll be back to take up the Green and Bold mantle once again. For now, though, it's about moving from restricted free agent status to signing a long-term deal with my new team at FanSided. As our QB1 has said in the past, "I feel like I've set the bar fairly high, and I want to keep living up to that bar."

Because I'm feeling more than a little nostalgic, I thought it might be fun to share a few of my favorite Green and Bold columns from the past couple years: 

Green and Bold: Packers Will Live and Die by Offensive Line vs. Cardinals (my first CHTV column!)

Green and Bold: Take Packers Defense with a Grain of Salt (Nov. 15, 2017)

Green and Bold: Give Aaron Rodgers Whatever He Needs (Dec. 20, 2017)

Green and Bold: Time to Prioritize Speed, Length Outside (May 3, 2017)

Green and Bold: Micah Hyde - Secret Weapon (Jan. 4, 2017)

Once again, thank you for sharing this corner of the Internet with me for the last two years. If you'd like to keep in touch, you know where to find me: @Michelle_NFL. And I hope you will keep in touch; I'll still be writing plenty about the Packers at FanSided. 

Thank you again for reading, and Go Pack Go!

Congratulations, Michele. Your very polished writing style and content foreshadowed this move. You know how to put a sentence or a paragraph together! Very well deserved.
