The future of 10,000 Words is here

I’m thrilled to announce another milestone in the history of this blog: 10,000 Words has been acquired by WebMediaBrands, the parent company of Mediabistro.com. What does this mean for the site? The same great original and insightful content on technology and online journalism, just more of it.

The acquisition makes possible what I’ve wanted for some time 10,000 Words — even before my move to The Washington Post — for 10,000 Words to evolve into a community of voices chronicling the latest trends in journalism. I will continue to contribute to the site for a while and am excited about the future of 10,000 Words.

As always, I encourage you to follow 10,000 Words on Twitter, as well as my newly-created individual Twitter account @marksluckie.

Thanks to everyone for following 10,000 Words and here’s to the future of the site!
