I thought about something as I prepared to publish a tweet about my newfound habit of lurking around the WordPress support forums to help out.
Helping other people out is kind of my thing. All it takes is a quick browse through Build WordPress Yourself or SDavis Media to see that I don’t mind breaking things down for perfect strangers.

This is not my first time leaving. I left a few years ago, too. Then, I owned a Facebook Page that I continued to maintain. Back then you could do that. However, many restrictions were placed on the Page admin that I interpreted as punishment for not having a personal profile. So I came back. That’s the profile most of you were friends with.
This time around, I don’t have a Facebook Page [that I care about]. I have a Facebook Group – Health & Fitness Collaborators. In this context, the difference between a Page and a Group is that the Group will not just delete itself when I leave. It would either be passed on to other admins or go to the most active members.
Andrew was HF Collab’s only admin besides me. That means the group belongs to him now. He is free to do whatever he chooses with it. For as long as it exists, I am more than willing to be active here in the community. Obviously, I just won’t be active on Facebook.
That’s all I’ve got, folks! Leave a comment below if you have words for me. Also, I’d be more than willing to connect with you all on Twitter, Instagram, or Google+.
