Ok, so I decided to write this post here for those who might be curious, "why did you leave where you were blogging?"
Is it because of the "scandal?"
No, not really. I had already decided to leave and was planning on starting my own community. I needed to find the bloggers first.
The truth of the matter is that I longed for a place where the technical content was so incredibly high that I'm scratching my head asking "what I'm doing here with all these geniuses?" We have a good start to that here.
I also was feeling cramped by the steady flow of ideas that I wasn't really apart of, nor did I often agree with. I also was noticing a steady flow of negativity that I wanted to get rid of... hence I needed a change of scenery.
So about 2 weeks before the infamous/famous "conference", I told the Brendan what my intentions were and he was OK with it. We maintain a decent relationship as far as I know.
As do DonXML and I... it really stunk that he was coming in as I was leaving. I would have loved to blog with him, but by that point I had my team over here, and couldn't bail on them.
Come on you gotta give me something?
Nope, if I did I would be doing something that I absolutely am against and would find myself catering to that negativity that mentioned earlier.
