[Update: Threadwatch is now back]
Im a little excited, and a lot sorry to say that i will be leaving Threadwatch today. There has been lots of umming and ahhing on my part as I've struggled to work out my time and commitments, but the final result is that as of today, right now, I no longer own, or administer Threadwatch.
My commitments to Performancing, the company Patrick Gavin and I have set up are getting bigger by the day. Organizing writers, developers, the introduction of a new PR company to the team and all that that entails and a whole bunch of other stuff mean that I now have to commit to that full-time if we want to get where we want to go with it.
The Good News
...is, that TW will not be put out to pasture. Aaron Wall of SEOBook has kindly agreed to take over Threadwatch and will begin that task as of today. You all know him, and I hope you'll give him a fair shot. There were several options on what to do with Threadwatch, and some, far more lucrative than this one, but in the end, I opted to go with a friend, rather than sell TW to devshed or some other firm. Mostly because I've spent the last 14mts living here, and talking with you guys on a daily basis. I just couldn't bear to see TW go to someone that didn't know it well, and have an idea of what to do with it. I've come to call this place home, but now it's time to move on. I'd like to thank everyone for making this a fucking fun place to run, post at and work on over the last year, and i really hope Aaron does the job I know he's capable of and manages to make this place better for everyone. I'll pop back later today and try to answer any questions. Take care guys. Nick
