About six years ago I wrote my first blog post on Blogation. You can read it here. I’ve had a lot of fun writing this blog – almost 500 posts in total. But as they say, “Things change, people change, hairstyles change, interest rates fluctuate.” When I started this blog, I was an employee of a fast-growing (and equally fast-impoding) dot com. Today, I’m the founder of a fast-growing (and hopefully not imploding) PPC agency. That means more responsibility and thus less time to write blog posts. Oh, and it is also probably worth noting that since I started the blog in 2005, I now have a wonderful wife and two cute kids under 3.5. Even less time to blog.

There is, however, a silver lining to all this. I’ve been really fortunate to surround myself at PPC Associates with several insightful, experienced team members who also happen to be incredible writers. Translation: while Blogation is going away, I’m excited to announce a bigger, better blog, where you can not only get my posts, but posts from a great team of SEM gurus. The link to the new PPC Associates blog is here.

In the next week or so, I’ll figure out how to make Blogation re-direct to the new PPC Associates blog. I hope all of you will follow me over there – trust me, it will be worth your time.

I truly appreciate everyone who took some time to read my posts for all these years (special props to Steve and Jeremy, Blogation super-fans!). So long, and thanks for all the fish!

    I’ve enjoyed the blog and look forward to reading the new blog. However, I’m finding it tough to locate the PPC Associates RSS feed.

    Say it isn’t so. Well out with the old and in with the new i suppose. Just don’t forget your towel and whatever you do in the new blog, don’t panic.
