June 30 will be my last day as a co-founder of Travel Blog Success.
I’ve accepted a position at Automattic continuing on as a Developer Advocate for WooThemes. Automattic has a Conflict of Interest policy that does not allow most side-businesses. Unfortunately Travel Blog Success is considered a conflict of interest and thus I had to make a difficult decision to cede co-ownership of Travel Blog Success to David Lee and I will no longer be involved with the business.
I’m very proud of what we accomplished with Travel Blog Success. Nothing has taught me more about business and web development more than my experience with TBS. It has been wonderful getting feedback from customers on how Travel Blog Success has changed their life. I was part of a team that helped people travel the world, tell their stories, and help them make money doing it. I felt good working on it.
It was not an easy decision but working for Automattic is a dream opportunity for me and my career. I am excited for this new adventure with Automattic and feel I am making the right decision for my future.
I’m confident that Britany Robinson and David Lee will continue to build on the excellent products and services of Travel Blog Success. There are so many exciting things coming soon for TBS and I cannot wait until they announce them. I feel very fortunate to have worked with such wonderful, hardworking people. I’m proud of what we’ve done together.
I will forever be grateful for the opportunity I had to be a co-founder of TBS. We never would have gotten this far without an amazing and dedicated group of members. I will continue to be active on the forums and Facebook Group but as a regular community member.
Thank you everyone for all of your support. See you in the forums!
