It gives me great pleasure to announce some exciting changes. Over the last few months I have been gradually expanding our team of writers.
The more I have witnessed the skills and attributes of my wonderful team, the more I have grown in confidence to share the burden of running this website.
As many of you know, I am tantalizingly close to getting my book finished, but I have been forced to accept that I can’t give it the attention it deserves with so many pots on the boil. When you are a young father with your own business, news blog, youtube channel and book to complete, something has to give.
I’ve therefore decided to recruit an Editor and Assistant Editor who can run the website over the next few months so I can focus on tying up loose ends. When the three months are over, we can review the situation and decide together how to proceed.
Covert Fade has kindly agreed to take on the Editor role, with John Redwood as his assistant. Both have impressed me as being enthusiastic, eloquent, committed and knowledgeable activists. They also have a genuine desire to maintain the existing welcoming tone of JWsurvey, and recognize its significance as a “halfway-house” between cult indoctrination and mental freedom.
I will continue in the background submitting occasional articles as the need arises, but I am grateful to be leaving the day-to-day running of JWsurvey in such capable hands. I know all you dear readers will give Covert Fade and John your support and encouragement.
I would also like to take this opportunity to pay tribute to our outgoing webmaster, John Hoyle. John is, in my opinion, one of the great unsung heroes of the exJW movement, having launched, edited, maintained and renovated numerous websites over many years, not to mention contributing many significant articles. He is now taking well-earned retirement from activism following his enormous contribution to the cause, which includes designing and launching this website back in 2011.
I cannot thank John enough for his extraordinary kindness in taking a chance on me back when I was virtually unknown, offering to build me a website completely out of the blue. It is his extraordinary kindness and generosity that inspires me to trust the keys of JWsurvey to other like-minded ones, thus adding their skills, energy and talents to a project I truly care about.
As individuals we can accomplish much, but as a team we can be unstoppable.
