So long for now, and thanks.

Hello friends,

Some big changes are coming to Stratepedia. I wish I could say they’re exciting changes, or at least changes I’m happy about, but they’re not. I don’t want to get into too many details right now, because they’re still being sorted out–but the long and short of it is we’re not going to have the time to carry on this blog as we have for nearly five years (yes, it started more than five years ago, but it was June of 2007 when we started posting news-you-can-use-type stuff).

So for now Amber and I are going to need to take a break from blogging here. We’re bouncing around a couple of ideas of how to keep you as informed as possible about everyday technology–not promising anything yet, but keep an eye out here and on Facebook and Twitter for more information (in other words, don’t unfollow us just yet–wait a few weeks, at least).

Thanks to everyone who’s paid attention to what we had to say over the years. I hope we’ve helped you make good use of the technology you’ve already got, and push to bring educational technology into the 21st century. Keep fighting the good fight. Thank you also to Amber, Nate, David, and Julie for their contributions, and to everyone who kept us motivated over the years by leaving a comment or sending an email. Believe it or not, those little touches do mean a lot.

    Sorry to hear this. I’ve enjoyed reading the Stratepedia posts. I might not be your target audience, but I certainly have enjoyed the reads.

    I’ve always read your posts by way of Twitter: once it gets posted there, I’d see it and then click on through.

    Nice job on the blog. I hope you’re not gone for too long.

    So sorry to hear about this.  I’ve really enjoyed your blogs, and I’ve learned so much. I’m hoping you’ll find a way to stay in touch with us.  I know you’ve made a huge difference in my tech learning.

    Thank you Barb–Amber and I have a few ideas up our sleeves; we just need to wait for some things to shake out first.

    Hi Katie, we’re toying around with a few new, hopefully more sustainable ideas. When we’ve got a plan we’ll share it here.

    Could be worse?

    Wow, this is bad news, I have made some real connections with your suggestions, tips and leads.  Thanks Aaron and your team for all their hard work, it was appreciated.

    Hi Patti, Amber and I have some ideas up our sleeves for some new projects–stay tuned!
