Rob Kerry Stepping Down As Sphinn Editor
I’m sad to announce that I will be stepping down as Editor of Sphinn as of today, having joined the site back in 2007. It was a hard decision to make, although I do not feel that I’ll have enough time to dedicate to the site as we move into 2010.
A number of recent personal events made me realise the importance of leisure time, which is not a luxury that I currently possess. The SEO Consultancy that I co-founded, Ayima, is also expanding at a rate that I could not have imagined. The growth is fantastic, but it also restricts my ability to give Sphinn the time and attention that it deserves. Last but not least, a slowly developing network of Affiliate sites and web apps have also been keeping me busy.
I really appreciate Danny offering me the job of managing Sphinn after I left Search Engine Watch – it was a great opportunity to build a site with so much potential. Working with Michelle Robbins, the Geek Goddess, was also an absolute pleasure – along with the rest of the Third Door Media team and mighty Moderators.
You haven’t seen the last of me yet though – I will continue to take part in Sphinn as a Moderator, helping to police and guide the site as much as I can.
In my absence, I’m pleased to announce a new Editor for Sphinn – the much respected Matt McGee. Matt is already a Sphinn Moderator and involved in Sphinn’s sister site, Search Engine Land. I’m sure that Matt will do a fantastic job and I hope you’ll join me in welcoming him in his follow-up post on the Sphinn blog.
