    W00t! This is super-dooper, fabulistic news yuss!
    Nice to see you are going to be able to stick around now Jeffro. Sadness over now – we don’t have to be miserable any more. This is really great news. Welcome home!


  2. Jeffro

    @Elpie – Thank you lol. The deal I worked out is awesome. Plus, I end up wanting to say so much and it would suck not having a place to say it :P


  3. Josh

    This is great news. Congratulations, Jeff. Whoever you are, Mystery WPTavern owner, thanks!


  4. Ed Sutherland

    Jeff, that’s great news – both for yourself personally and the WordPress community, in general. We can surmise the owner, even if the name remains unsaid.


  5. Andreas Nurbo

    Congrats. Thought you would be back, this is quicker than expected though =).


  6. Sallie Goetsch (rhymes with 'sketch')

    Congratulations! That’s terrific news, Jeffro. I look forward to having WordPress Weekly back. I understood why you made the decision you did–we all have to pay the rent–but I think you did, indeed, undervalue your contribution to the community.

    It’s great that WordPress journalism is becoming something you can do for a living. Way to go!

    On the flip side, this arrangement sounds extremely weird. Are you going to announce the new owner later, or is the agreement in fact that this should never be disclosed? If that’s the case, it kind of conflicts with the open philosophy that drives WordPress.


  9. JLeuze

    That’s great news Jeff, can’t wait to see WordPress Weekly in my podcast queue again!

    Amazing news, Jeff! It’s really great to hear that you’re back! And congrats on the truck you got — it will sure make your life so much easier (and leave more time for working at the tavern)!

  14. Flick

    I am really glad you managed to sort something out that resulted in the best outcome, for yourself and for us, so welcome back and great job on the negotiations!

    Am looking forward to reading your posts as usual and was wondering if there was any chance of setting up an email subscription plugin so we can receive updates via email?

    p/s: One must thank your anonymous buyer for knowing that WPTavern is a unique resource in the WP world that is too good to be left aside. Thanks AB!

    Glad it worked out for the best. I’m excited to see what you come up with next. Heck, maybe I can finally do some writing again about WP media management *cough*. I’m glad WPTavern lives to write another day.
