I understand about things becoming monotonous, but that's how it is with most things associated with "work", even the seemingly 'glamorous' jobs, don't you think? Perhaps you need a few more folks on your team. May I recommend someone? Happyflowerlady, she's fab. I'd say that you're right about having one's fill after 6+ years, and him wanting to move on. One thing I noticed about Ryan is that he ran Postloop like a BOSS. Payments were quick, responses were quick, he was all-in. He ran it not like someone who was tired of it, but like someone who was just bossin' up all over the place, you know what I mean? After all that, you just don't leave the scene. No way. The way he ran that site?... he's going to be somewhere, doing something. I logged in all the time in 'support', not even commenting but just to see what people were talking about, and he was always there, a l w a y s there. (But you, KenBrace, know all about this type of work ethic, with your 700 plus posts, probably will be up to 800 by the end of the month, if not sooner.) Yes, with that work ethic, I think that he is delving into something more lucrative, for the reason that you listed here about the income being fairly low. But... Was his income really all that low from Postloop? I wonder. I mean, maybe compared to other people who run sites, perhaps. But compared to say, someone like me and my income, perhaps not.
