I will be leaving my position at McClatchy Interactive in a few days. It will mean a big shift for me, but one that I’m really excited about.
I’ve worked with some great people, but in the end, I feel that I have to move on. Working in an industry that is constantly contracting isn’t good for my mental state. Being the guy swimming against the tide eventually exhausts you. I finally realized it wasn’t a dip, but a cul-de-sac.
I have an opportunity to do exactly what I’ve been advocating for while at McClatchy, and that’s one of the biggest reasons I’ve made this choice. I’m looking forward to doing search marketing, brand management and social media leveraging as my main tasks everyday.
I’ll still be blogging and tweeting, now all I need is for you guys to keep reading.
