Wow, so I’m really late at getting this going (so apologies to those promoted), but we’ve got a lot of news to announce and all of it fantastic!
Almost a month ago the staff invited @RyanReese and @chrisofarabia to become Mentors. Both of these individuals have shown great experience, skill, mentorship in their responses to other members and have a great attitude towards the web industry, which is something we always look for. Be sure to say “Hi” to them and ask them all sorts of questions in this topic so you can really get to know them. A bit of background: Ryan just adopted 2 kittens who like to wake him up early in the morning, so he has a lot of “new” in his life right now. Chris literally has a room full of guitars, and yes, I’m jealous (but I also have zero skill in playing a guitar… so it is probably better for everyone that I don’t have a room full of them)! Any and All questions are acceptable, ask them embarrassing ones, or comical ones, or even serious ones about their careers in the web industry and their hobbies in their free time… anything goes!
If that weren’t enough news, there is even a bigger one! @TechnoBear has graciously accepted taking my position as a Team Leader! I couldn’t be happier with her taking over my role and stepping into the Blue Light, it was with a sadden heart that I decided to step down, but in the end rose someone who is very worthy of the role and can do great things with it. If you don’t know @TechnoBear, she loves to take long walks, watch boats, and ride bikes (and finds knitting enjoyable… what!!! really?!? Yep, she takes it seriously). So don’t leave her out of any of your questions either! Let’s find fun creative ways to make them blush into their Orange color, or to hold their breath till they turn blue!
