It has been less than a month since I announced my move to The Verge. At the time I warned that posts here would be less frequent, and that has certainly been true over the holiday period. We’re now in 2012 and I have started to write fully at The Verge. If you’ve been following me then you may have noticed that my posts there haven’t been as thick as fast as you may have been used to here. This is partly because I’m new and also related to the slow amount of Microsoft related news over the holidays. I’m currently working with The Verge’s editorial team to get myself fully up to speed and ready for CES 2012 next week, so things will be back on track very soon.
So what happens to WinRumors in the meantime? As I noted in my “Moving to The Verge” post, this is a massive move for me personally and I have been working to ensure readers get their Microsoft fix from The Verge until I secure plans for the site. I have received several kind offers from individuals to help keep the site running, and from other publishers to take over the site. I’m in discussions with one in particular that I feel would be a great fit for WinRumors, and would take over the site with its best interests at heart. I’m hopeful that I’ll be able to announce some positive news soon. Until then, the RSS for WinRumors and Twitter/Facebook accounts will share articles related to Microsoft stories at The Verge. I have received mixed feedback on this and I’m welcome to more so please leave a comment if you feel strongly one way or the other.
I’d like to thank you all again for your incredible support, readership and continued patience whilst I make this transition. It has not been an easy decision for me personally, and I feel incredibly guilty that I haven’t kept you more informed on the future of WinRumors. I had originally hoped to have something in place before my start date at The Verge. I hope you will continue to read my work over at The Verge, it’s going to be an incredible year for the site and Microsoft.
