Update: This was an April Fools Joke. :-) Some parts of the article below are true though. I hope you'll have an awesome spring and a sunny summer full of outdoor adventures.
You may ask why I sold Highball Blog to Demand Media. The short answer is: they made me an offer I could't refuse.
The long answer is: my consulting work and my offline solar panels gigs take too much time so I became rather inactive on this blog. But at the same time I'm happy to share the benefits of outdoor gear sponsorships with a small group of select people who have been writing the reviews lately.
So what's next? Who's gonna run this blog?
Well, I will be here for a while (at least one year). I'll be showing them how this thing works (not that they don't know) but mostly I'll serve as a consultant until the transition is completely made.
Basically, I'll explain my publishing philosophy (that sounds so pretentious, doesn't it?). We'll also talk about the main niches this blog covers:
- GoPro editing tips and general amateur video production
- MTB shirts and climbing T-shirts
- Outdoor gear reviews
- Gear giveaways
How you can grow a blog and sell it
The magic is in the details but to quote Chris Brogan I'll tell you the core thing you need to know:
Be helpful. Do it often.
Over to you
I started blogging coz I love sharing stuff and I enjoy having conversations with people who are more or less like me. If you're reading this, this means we may have some common ground.
Leave a comment below and let's keep the conversation going.
