Just over four years ago, Brenda Bethman and I had the crazy idea to start up a blog that was all about student affairs women in technology. At the time, there seemed to be a dearth of them – in fact, other than my own, it was hard to find another, especially among mentions of technology blogs. Since then, there have definitely started to be more blogs by women about technology – in student affairs and beyond. It’s been exciting to see this transition – and even more exciting to be a part of it.
After four years of working with some incredible and amazing women, I have decided it’s time to give someone else a shot at co-running this blog. I can’t thank the bloggers I’ve worked with enough – they have all been spectacular to work with, and they are some of the most intelligent, insightful, and crazy awesome bloggers I know. Seriously – if you’re not reading them, you totally should be. So yeah, I’m stepping down from my editing duties on this blog and handing that off to someone else. A pretty fantastic someone else, actually – but I’ll let her tell you about that herself.
Because I’m me, I can’t quite let go completely, so I’ve opted to continue blogging here for at least a little while. And of course, if you miss me, you can always find me on the Twitters and the Facebook. But for now, I’m ready for a step back for me and a step forward for someone else. Thanks for reading us, and thanks to the women who blog for letting me be their editor for four years. Y’all rock.
