Well, I knew this day was coming for some time now…and many of you may have already seen the information. But, it is official, as of today, I no longer own The Friendly Blogger.
As I have mentioned many times before, boring you to tears I am sure, I simply do not have the time to manage this blog any longer. I tried to make it work for as long as I could, but having a regular full time job does not leave me much time.
It has been a harrowing process to say the least…trying to find someone who would take care of the site and continue to try and build it. I have found that person and assures me he wants to continue to grow the site as much as possible.
It’s actually a sad day for me. I put my blood, sweat and tears into this blog and have made some fantastic friendships and contacts. I can’t put into words how much I have learned from so many of you. Ughhh…I am starting to tear up now..:(
I have the same email address so if you still have questions, comments or whatever..please don’t hesitate to contact me. Help the new owner out too. He is relatively new to all of this, so be patient. (As bloggers are :)))))
I initially started this journey to try and make money online. Go figure, now that the blog is making some money, I don’t have the ample time. So, I will be taking my online journey to some other projects. Static websites, freelance writing, etc… I may even start up a personal blog that would be easier to manage for me. I dont need to research myself!!
There is no way in hell I could ever mention everybody who has been with me step by step in this journey. But I have some special folks to mention. If I forgot you, please know it was not intentional. I have sometimers!!
In no particular order, I would like to thank these people from the bottom of my heart:

I swear I didn’t mean to leave anyone out!!! I apologize again if I did.
So, I guess this is a momentary goodbye. I can now get back to visiting and commenting on all of your great blogs now. I have missed being able to just sit back and read your stuff.
I wish all of you well and much prosperity. I do have a new Twitter account that you can hop over to and follow me on if you fancy. This will be used for my new ventures too.
And before I forget, you can also grab your copy of my how to blog book, chronicling all of the knowledge with The Friendly Blogger.
Don’t be dismayed at goodbyes. A farewell is necessary before you can meet again. And meeting again, after moments or lifetime, is certain for those who are friends. ~Richard Bach
