I'm a bit late in sharing the news in my personal blog, as this has been announced at b5media about 2 days ago. And, I made the announcement over at About Weblogs shortly after. I also wrote about some background/behind-the-scenes stuff at AW, especially in connection with 9rules.
The short form of it: I'm very excited about the whole deal. Not only do I get to work as a partner with great bloggers like Darren (ProBlogger.net), Duncan (BlogHerald.com), and Jeremy (ensight.org), I also get to work alongside some really cool bloggers over at b5media. And, of course, most of the About Weblogs team is part of the whole thing too.
Here's what some of my new b5 family have to say:
From About Weblogs Bloggers:
From Existing b5ers:
Uhhmmm... Did I miss anyone? Let me know if you've posted anything about this merger too. Thanks!
