Nick Denton has decided to close down one of his blogs less than 6 months after it was launched. Oddjack focused on gambling but site that didn’t quite get the popularity of the other Gwkr blogs. On his blog Denton says:

"Blog titles are like new TV shows. Some make it; some don’t. Oddjack, Gawker Media’s gambling site, was one of the ones that didn’t. And it’s best to cancel the show sooner rather than later…. The moral of the story: it’s easy to launch sites; much harder to make them popular."
