As of today, I am no longer working at MTV Geek. Much thanks and appreciation to my intrepid and talented writers — among them Charles, Sean, Brigid, Jorge, Kendra, Steven, Ali, Zack, Kevin, and Aaron.
Thus MTV Geek editor in chief Valerie Gallaher announced her departure. According to Bleeding Cool, she resigned, “leaving for greater professional opportunities.”
Gallaher’s own blog has been updating more frequently of late, and she’s always had an interest in writing, with her autobiographical account of her time in DC editorial Goodbye to Comics gaining some controversy and readers.
Valerie is an amazing blogger—for what it’s worth in the 2013 economy—the post showing her departure being a perfect example. I’m sure she’ll be going on to pursue her own writing projects.
Meanwhile, what about MTV Geek? Is it going Comics Alliance on us? Just speculating there folks—I have no inside info whatsoever.
I’m on a huge deadline today but I’ll have thorough analysis of all the news as CRISIS IN THE BLOGOSPHERE continues here in the Situation Room.
