What’s Next for Epolitics.com

October 19th, 2007

So here we are in late October of 2007, 15 months after the launch of e.politics. On the East Coast, Fall is slowly, belatedly settling in — the sky darkens early now, the leaves show signs of withering, and the mind naturally turns to questions of change. What’s next in this online endeavor of ours?

Here’s the scoop: as of January 1st, I’ll be trading my day job as online communications manager at the National Environment Trust for the life of an independent consultant. After four years of stable employment, it’s time to ride the waves of capitalism once again, and in the process (I hope) help a bunch of organizations get the most out of our little world of online political communications. NET will actually be disappearing along with my job; it’s being absorbed into the Pew Environment Group at the Pew Charitable Trusts. If all goes well, I’ll continue working with them extensively, but I’ll obviously be expanding my client base as fast as possible.

Exciting times! Without the hassles of a day job (getting dressed, showering, etc.), I should be able to put more effort into e.politics just as the primary season really takes off. And, if the consulting business goes well, I’ll be learning from a whole slew of new projects — and sharing the results with y’all. Some of you reading this have been along since the beginning, and this site would have burned out long ago without you and everyone else who’s joined in since. I appreciate you more than I can say. Your next mission: how about that guest article you’ve been thinking about? It sure ain’t gonna write itself.

That’s the news from e.politics — it’s time to have us a little adventure. Over the course of November, I’ll be moving to an undisclosed bunker somewhere in Northwest D.C. (terrifying the cat in the process), so don’t fret if the site goes dark for a couple of days here and there — I’m probably just a-haulin’ boxes. And maybe putting a little time into that robot/kung fu army….

    Exciting times, indeed! I wish you all the best. I did the same thing about 2 months ago.

    I was afraid, from reading the title of this post in my rss reader, that the site was gonna go away for good.
    Phew.
    Good luck!
