Sarah Bird had some big news to share with us today:
Rand Fishkin, the man behind the mustache, is leaving his position at Moz.
Actually, he’s “shifting” his role.
What Does This Mean?
Rand has previously altered his role from CEO to Product Architect (which is the type of striking title I’d like to craft for myself, since Batman is taken), so he has some experience moving around at Moz.
At this point, he will be taking 6 to 9 months to transition into a new role as a Moz Associate. He also has a book coming out next year.
Okay, that’s all fine and good, but…
What Does This Mean for Whiteboard Fridays?
It’s still going to exist and Rand will still be involved.
According to Sarah,
“He will continue to be a passionate speaker and evangelist, and you’ll still see his enthusiastic face in Whiteboard Fridays, on the Moz Blog, and on various conference stages.”
Don’t worry, WBF fans, we are still going to get our weekly injection of weird wizard visuals and informative lectures.
… and now back to your regularly scheduled blog posts.
