SPECIAL: Au revoir not goodbye
Some good news and some bad.
For a while now I have enjoyed a great relationship with NaturalCollection.com.
That relationship has just stepped up a gear and I am delighted to announce that as of Nov 1st I will be Natural Collection's first Head of Marketing. I am really looking forward to the role as you can imagine. The best part, apart from working for the Ethical Retailer of the Year of course, is that the position is home-based meaning I get to enjoy my family more and restore some much-needed work-life balance.
This job is going to consume almost all of me and so I have decided to suspend all my other time-consuming and mentally demanding activities where possible to devote myself fully to the role.
That means no more being the Blog Editor for the Ecologist and, sadly, I have taken the decision to freeze CityHippy for the time being.
I may well come back to it one day but for the forseeable future the CityHippy blog will cease to publish new content. I considered letting some of the Editors carry it on but CityHippy is just too much of me to let others carry it forward. All good things must come to an end I guess. Please continue to link to it though as it still remains a valuable resource with over 530 articles and 1400 bookmarks. And keep the feeds in your feedreaders as you never know what might happen.
Some of CityHippy's Editors have decided to start their own collective blog carrying on from CityHippy and I am very excited by what they are talking about doing. I totally support and applaud them and look forward to reading what they have to say. More on that new blog when I know more.
THE LAST POST
CityHippy's swan song will be on Nov 6th when I will bow out by hosting the 1st year Anniversary edition of the Carnival of the Green. Seems an appropriate moment to leave the stage. From then on the Carnival will be run by Nick Aster of Treehugger.
So there it is folks. Nov 6th. Put it in your diaries. We are gonna have quite possibly the first and biggest blog retirement party so let's show the blogosphere that greens know how to party. Please do join me on that final post and leave your thoughts.
My struggle to be green is not over but my family and I have come along way and without you all there is no doubt in my mind that we would not have come this far. For that we thankyou.
