Sadly, about six months into the ClassicPress adventure my life changed. I won’t go into any details as the matters are very personal, but suffice to say, it meant I had to step away from my daily interactions with the ClassicPress experiment.
This was not an easy thing to do – I had made promises to the community that I was in it for the long haul and yet in an instant I completely disappeared from the public eye. I pride myself on being a man of my word, and yet here I was breaking those promises.
For this I truly apologise – both for my sudden disappearance and for leaving my fellow committee members short-handed and for breaking personal promises I made to them. […]
For better or worse my life has continued to change in the past year, and it is with sadness that today I announce my official departure from the project for the foreseeable future.
However, there is also an element of pride and excitement – ClassicPress has shown that it IS a community-led project and has continued to grow and flourish. I can’t wait to see where it goes next and I hope that one day I can once again contribute to its future.
