A couple of days ago I came across a post on OSP that said "Don't be silly, DJ has nothing to do with OSP anymore." and a friend of mine said that my "absence" comes across as "better than thou."
What I thought was really sad was that people probably believe both of these statements. I don't comment on every post like I did for the first couple of years because by the time I read a thread 10 people have already given the advice I would've given! It's great! Everyone is sharing and we've all seen the community grow and grow and grow because more and more people took on that role.
I also travel the world speaking and part of my presentation talks specifically about OSP and the community here and that is how a lot of people hear about and join this wonderful group.
Lastly, OSP takes a lot of time and money just to keep it running. I pay over $5,000 a year to keep it going and commit a good bit of time personally to verifying the accounts.
My role has changed but to say I'm not involved or to think that I'm arrogant simply because I don't post as much is a bummer and I thought it was important for me to share with everyone the reality of my role and responsibility changing.
Love you all,
p.s. I still have the most posts so ;P
