Good Bye, Adios, Auf Weidersehen.


I started WPCandy with Michael Castilla, hoping to stay until the end, but after a long and painful discussion with him, I’ve decided to leave WPCandy. My reasons for leaving have nothing to do with the site or Mike himself, but because I know longer have the time or effort to post on WPCandy. It’s difficult to juggle personal life, with college, work, and then still have time for WPCandy. I have barely an hour a day to myself!

I will still be around, replying to WPCandy’s posts and answering questions in the comments. I may be leaving WPCandy in terms of staff, but I’ll still sick around as a reader and supporter of WPCandy. In the future, if my free time does become more flexible, then I may well return.

Mike has done very well to hold together WPCandy while I’ve been absent and I praise him for that! He’s a great guy and over the last 9 months or so of getting to know him, we’ve become great friends and I’ll continue to support his work.

I hope you, as readers and fellow bloggers, understand that we didn’t expect WPCandy to become as successful so quickly. I’m leaving Mike with a lot of pressure, so if he hasn’t posted for a couple of days, don’t think WPCandy is going down the pot, hes trying his hardest!

I’d also like to thank all the readers and supporters of WPCandy for making it so successful. It’s been a pleasure working along side Mike and I am sorry to be leaving.

Thank you for taking your time to read this message and see ya’ll around!

  1. Sad to see you go man, but I know how difficult it can be to keep working on a site while trying to live the rest of your life.

    I’m sure Mike (Castilla) will take this opportunity to show just how great he is – and keep on making WP Candy THE BEST WordPress site there is!

    Cheers, and good luck in the future.

  2. Too sad that you decided to leave, i really adore WPcandy,

    but have in your last post a typing error it needs to be “Auf Wiedersehen” if you want to say it in german. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Good luck in future.

  3. @Mike Cromarty – you will be missed! I have enjoyed your posts in the past, but can totally empathize – I’m struggling with the same issue myself (no time to post on my own blog anymore), so I wish you the best of luck!

    @Mike Castilla – good luck with keeping up WPCandy – it’s one of my favorite sites to visit daily. You might consider asking some of the WP heavyweights to contribute the occasional guest article to help alleviate some pressure (I’m sure there will be a lot in attendance at WordCamp Dallas next month ๐Ÿ™‚ )
