A New Chapter Has Begun

by Daniel Dessinger » on Sep 04, 2010 1

As you may have surmised from the title, I have an announcement.

After three months of painful walking and not being able to wear my Fivefingers, I’ve made the only logical decision I could in good conscience make – to place MyFivefingers in the hands of someone more capable to engage the brand and the lifestyle.

Since decade-old injuries have prohibited me from the freedom I’ve wished to enjoy, another has come to fill my shoes. Literally and figuratively.

Over the past week, Dan Hinckley and I have been in the process of negotiations and the transfer of all site content. He, and maybe a few friends, will share their thoughts and experiences with Fivefingers and take this site to the next level.

I couldn’t be more thrilled. When you own 12 blogs you can’t keep up, finding a good match for even one of them is no small relief. I’m looking forward to seeing what they have in store for the site. I’ll be checking in now and then. You may find me lurking in the comments section.

Want to stay in touch?

If you’ve been following me on @myfivefingers, you can come on over and say hi to me at my primary Twitter account, @danielthepoet. Dan and crew will maintain the @myfivefingers account along with the blog, so be sure you stay tuned for more good stuff there.

My New Project

If you’re a little curious about what I’ll be up to now, you can come find me at my new startup project, I set up the site earlier this year but couldn’t find the time to commit to it. No time like the present, eh? I’ll be reviewing my favorite and some of my not-so-favorite blogs and critiquing them. It’s a great opportunity to learn more about winning blog design, content, and strategy. I’ve always learned more from stories and illustrations than straight lecture. It will be a great place to discover blogs you’ve never seen before and also brush up on your own blogging strategies and tactics.

See you there.

And when you get a chance, drop Dan Hinckley a note or a comment and welcome him to the Fivefingers web community! He’ll be introducing himself and his crew shortly.

It’s been a blast. I hope to run into each of you somewhere out there on the interwebz. Until then, keep rockin’ the VFFs!
