A few weeks back I wrote about how running this site as my full time ‘day job’ had become quite tough, with ad revenues that go up and down dramatically and a work schedule that isn’t the most family friendly.
Following that post I received lots of lovely comments and emails from quite a few of you who have been visiting the site for years. I also received some generous donations via Paypal. Today I want to say a big, BIG thank you to all of you who made donations and showed your support through comments and emails. It’s hugely rewarding to know that you enjoy this site and to hear that some of you have discovered a lot of great iPad apps and accessories, or learned a cool way to use the iPad, through articles here.
I also wanted to provide a quick update on my work situation. Things have worked out very well. I’m back at work as an IT consultant to small businesses here in Austin. A job I did for many years and love doing. And best of all, for now I am doing it part time, roughly half the work hours in a week – which leaves me with a good amount of time to keep things rolling along here at iPad Insight.
I’m very happy that things have worked out this way, and very thankful to all of you for your support and for all your visits here. I’ll continue to do my very best to make this a worthwhile place to visit.
As you can see in the screenshot above, there are still some members of the iPad Insight team who may not be taking their role as seriously as I’d like, or being as productive as they could be. I’m working hard on that too. :)
