Earlier this week, Evo Terra announced he was leaving Farpoint Media.
Then, yesterday Brittney announced she had resigned as the head-blogger for Nashville is Talking.
And like that, suddenly the Internet becames a little bit less exciting and fun.
Both Evo and Brittney brought their own unique voices and perspective to the Internet. Both of them fostered a sense of community among podcasters and blog readers, respectively. Both of them had their fans, both of them had their detractors. Both of them conducted themselves with professionalism and never apologize for just being who they are, deep down. Both of them created a sense of community on the vast world wide web.
Both of them will be sorely missed.
I know they'll find other ways to share their voices with us. But for now, I give them both my thanks for the years of hard work they've put in. They made it look easy, but deep down I think we all knew they were working their butts off.
I hope your next venture is even more successful than the ones you've left. You have my thanks, my friendship and my well wishes for a bright and successful future.
