a dream come true

For about 2 1/2 years, my free time has been devoted to helping on the MT forums . It has been such an enjoyable activity to me that I expanded onto many of my websites with tutorials, tips, and examples of using Movable Type. As the forums got busier and the projects grew, I developed friendships and became more devoted to all of Six Apart’s ventures.

This last week, I spent several days at the Six Apart office in San Mateo, CA, where I met with Ben and Mena and the rest of the team to discuss my employment and projects they have in mind for me. Starting Wednesday, I’m an official employee, doing Off-site Technical Support, among other things. smile

I’m ecstatic. Literally to the point of bouncing. laughing Just ask E, I didn’t stop smiling for hours and hours after I got home! I’m gonna still be working with Brenna and Shelley, and meeting them was so much fun after all these years. I truly couldn’t have dreamed of a better job opportunity, doing things that I love enough to be volunteering until this point! And plus, I can still work at my desk at home, and rest between projects as needed. Perfect. smile Like Shelley said, its not just our blogs that are Powered by Movable Type now. smile

Thanks for all the well wishes and guessing while I was gone. I had a lot of fun reading the comments between meetings and work, and I’m blessed to have such a great group of friends who visit me here. prheart
pictures and recaps will follow.
