Just so you know, come February of next year I will be leaving xanga. Most of you probably know that my partners and I at SocialMore Media Inc. have been developing a new social networking website for the past 8 months. It launches to the public on February 4th, 2011.
Obviously as ceo of this company how would it look if I blogged on a website that was not our own? Of course being that I know this I’m not going to switch to something that is inferior to xanga. Which is why we’ve paid a lot of attention to our blogging features.
As a result I will not be holding my annual booty contest I’ve held here in March for the last two years. I will however be holding it on socialmore if there are enough participants. I may have to skip a year until we build enough of a membership. I don’t know. It just depends on how quick the site takes off.
I will of course be taking all my existing xanga blog entries with me. As we will allow easy importation of xanga accounts, facebook accounts, LJ, wordpress, blogger and more.
I very much like xanga and I absolutely love the community here, all my readers and all the people I read. Obviously no one is stopping you from having an account on both websites, so I hope you do join me there in February.
I’m not leaving yet. I will continue to blog here until February. This is just a three month heads up.
