VARbuzz tweaks and a new blogmaster

Just a few changes here at VARbuzz we want make you aware of:

  • For those of you who subscribe by e-mail, you may have noticed that the daily e-mail digest now contains the post author’s name. This took a little bit of blog magic on the part of VAR’s Editor & Information Manager, Andrew Kantor.
  • andrew-kantor-mug-shotIn recognition of Andrew’s many contributions to VARbuzz over these past few months, he is taking over the reins as the VARbuzz Blogmaster. I’ll continue contributing to VARbuzz of course, but Andrew will now be the point man on the blog, including comment moderation (so let’s give him a nice welcome: everyone comment on this post two or seven times!). Unwilling to simply ride into the sunset, I’m taking the oh-so-venerable title of Blogmaster Emeritus.
  • Under Andrew’s reign, 2009 will bring some exciting changes to VARbuzz.  For one thing, we’re going to redesign the site and add some new features. For another thing, we’ll host a nation-wide Blog Brawl in March with fabulous prizes. Still another thing, we’ll be doing more contests like the Blog Brawl, but less — shall we say — intense for the participants.

Okay, now show Andrew how much you love him. Start leaving those multiple comments.

    Welcome … will Andrew be leaving the knife at home, now? And where’s that kitten? I’m a little concerned that she had an unfortunate encounter with our new blogmaster.

  2. Brian Block says:

    Congratulations Andrew! Looking forward to seeing what you scheme up for the new year…

  3. Jeremy Hart says:

    Did I say welcome? I couldn’t remember.

  4. The kitten is none of your concern.

    Ben is actually pretty happy about not having to deal with day-to-day issues:

  5. Jeremy Hart says:

    Well done! Andrew’s gonna do just fine here!

  6. Jim Duncan says:

    I guess congratulations are in order. Well done!

  7. As you can see, Andrew is also a photoshop expert. He took a photo of me learning how to toss pizza crust and superimposed it into a scene in a restaurant with a belly dancer. Is there any wonder we kicked him upstairs to Blogmaster?

  8. Careful. You could just as easily be smooching with Osama bin Laden. Or worse, Britney Spears.

  9. Congrats Drew! Please post more embarassing pics of Ben. He is such a rock star we need to knock him down a few nothces so his head will still fit through the door.

  10. Tina Merritt says:

    Congrats Drew! I didn’t like Ben anymore anyway since he popped my balloon. :)

  11. Speaking of photos, was the photo of Andrew taken right after he learned he was the new VAR Blogmaster? He looks pretty pumped about his new internet powers!
    Congrats to both Ben & Andrew on your new roles.

    Finally this place will be really awesome now. When do we change the theme to a dark morbid theme?

    (Ben, you guys have done a great job at building this community)

  13. Welcome and congrats. This is one of those interesting blogs that I like to stop buy and read from time to time, so keep up the good work please.

  14. Mary Dykstra says:

    Keep the darking humor coming, Andrew- it is so appropriate for the times we are living in!

  15. Joyce Compton says:

    Good Day Andrew, looks like you’re in for a real ride on this one… good luck and look forward to your imput…
    Ben, great job, you really have you hands full now…

  16. jay says:

    Cool, looking forward to viewing my feed daily… and chiming in once in awhile.

  17. Drew,
    Congrats! Well deserved, I can’t wait to see what’s in store!

    Ben..isn’t there another pic of you with a belly dancer floating around out there somewhere? Interwebs, such a dangerous place to hang out… ;)
