It was certainly unexpected. When I made my daily visit to ElvisNews.com yesterday I found out that it's closing down.
This is sad news, as it's one of the best Elvis sites around. But at the same time I fully understand why the people behind ElvisNews.com decided to call it a day. When a hobby becomes more like a daily job the fun goes out of the window.
I also share their opinion about all the rude comments being made by fans on the site, reaching an all time low with the passing of Michael Jackson. All those stupid comments was the one thing I never did like on ElvisNews.com.
But the rest of it I really digged. The new layout introduced a while back made it an even better place to visit and find out the latest news about Elvis. After all, there was a reason I put it at the top of the list among the Elvis links on this blog.
ElvisNews.com was also my first choice when I offered them a review I'd written of Pot Luck With Elvis. When it was published on my favorite Elvis site back in November, 2007, it was a proud moment.
I will miss my daily visits to ElvisNews.com, that's for sure. At the same time I'd like to take the opportunity to say thank you very much to the folks that have been running it. You've done a great job that has meant a lot to the Elvis community!
