I Just Resigned From ReveNews

I just posted my farewell post over at ReveNews. Today was my last day as Publisher.


My first blog entry at ReveNews was on March 1, 2005. Three months later in June 2005 I was officially handed the keys to the ReveNews community car. And I drove it pretty hard that first year. In fact, I don’t think I slept much behind the wheel that first year.

So here we are 3-months into 2007 and I am announcing that I’m officially handing the keys to ReveNews back to Wayne Porter. Where the ReveNews car will go now is something I’m sure Wayne will be letting you know soon. I will find out when you do.

I leave on my own accord, having spent over two-years working with ReveNews as one of my main focuses. Believe me, it’s hard to let go of something you have so much invested in, but on the same hand, I knew that for ReveNews to continue to grow that it was time for me to move on and let someone else run the rest of the race. It has been a learning experience and I’m grateful to have had it.

There’s really not much more to say except that it’s a sad day for me in some ways. I poured a lot of energy into ReveNews over the past few years, and while I’m glad to know that it’s going to continue to kick butt under Wayne’s continued expertise, I’m sad that I’m not part of it.

However, with every end, there is a new beginning, and now I’m ready to pursue new opportunities. You know me, I don’t know how to stay idle for very long.

Let’s grab the popcorn and watch and see what Wayne has in store. Again, Wayne, friend, thank you for the opportunity.

Jimbo.. sorry to see you go. I guess that means I really have no other reason to visit Revenews again since you’re leaving. Ah well, you rock anyhow, and you’re a good pal. I’m sure you can figure out a way to keep busy. If you need anything, you know where to find me!

Jon, you crazy? :) Thanks for the comment, but let’s not spin this negative. I love ReveNews, and you should continue to visit it, especially now that Wayne is on top of it.

Frankly, I’m excited to watch what happens from a civilian standpoint, it’s gonna be a fun ride if I know Wayne, and I do!

Wow, Jim, big news.

I love change, so I’ll say congrats, even though it’s surely bittersweet for you.

It was a pleasure working with you over there and I look forward to working with you further in other areas.

[…] picked up an honoree Webby Award, pretty darn cool. Although I’m not the publisher there anymore, this award means a lot to me, and should mean a lot to Wayne and all the other ReveNews bloggers […]
