    When you started webmaster-resources.com did you ever imagine that it would blossom into such a large entity?

    Is it ever overwhelming?

    Putting any financial gain to the side, is it rewarding to know that over the years your efforts have helped web developers to learn more and help others at the same time?

    Only one big question from me for the moment...

    What can we look forward to seeing from SitePoint in the future (new services!)?

    Do you go onto the forums a lot? Which forum sections do you generally go to when you're online? Besides checking for spam/fluff etc.

    What are your hobbies when you're not devoted to SP?
    Always looking for web design/development work.

    How much of your current success has been the result of sharp strategic planning versus natural evolution and opportunistic exploitation?

    If you were forced to leave behind SitePoint and everything related to it (like flippa or 99designs)... what would you do? would you create a different business? would you even be associates and colleagues again?

    Are there any differences of opinion between you? Do you ever discuss when the decission needs to be taken with both in agreement? what I mean it is if you have a kind of system to sort out when this happens because I am sure that you don't agree all of the time

    What plans do you have to get the general community and visitors to SitePoint more involved in the evolution of the business?

    Regarding having such a large company, what did/do you find to be the single hardest thing in your business?

    Is there anything you find yourself struggling with, even today? And if so, how do you combat/resolve it?
