Blog Note

As some of you may have seen already on Twitter, Peter Daou has resigned from his leadership position at Shareblue, and I have been promoted to Editor-in-Chief.

I am very excited—and overwhelmed—by this challenge. It is an enormous responsibility, and I am going to endeavor mightily to do justice to all the work Peter did leading the team to lay the foundation on which we hope to build.

For most of the past year, I've been working two full-time jobs—here and at Shareblue, as their content strategist. This new position will require most of my time, and something has to give, lest I completely flame out. So my role at Shakesville will be reduced.

But I want to make abundantly clear that this community is not going anywhere.

I will still be a contributor here, and I am working with the rest of the team to strategize a way forward to free up some of my time while also maintaining this space, on which I know so many of you rely.

After the results of the election, please know that I am keenly aware that this community is more important for many of you than ever. It has always been, and remains, critically important to me.

I hope you will bear with us as we figure out this transition, and bear with me as I navigate my way through finding a workable balance.
