An Important Update From Val

Pin It

I’ve had a rough time writing this post. In fact I’ve stared at the blank screen for hours now. Time to just blurt it out.

I have sold the site.

For those of you on the newsletter list this won’t be a surprise. You were the only one’s that new I was putting it up for sale. I wasn’t looking to sell to a big company and get rich from it. Firefighter Wife was never about the money.  I wanted to make sure it was going to be taken over by someone that would continue it forward with being a helpful resource.

I believe I found that person in Lori.  I’m excited about ideas she’s shared with me and some of her vision for the future here.

When a decision is right it can be easy to make. Selling FFW was an easy one and one that has also gone smoothly. My other sites are keeping me really busy (yeah) and I’m unable to post as much here as I’m sure you have noticed over the months. It’s been one more thing on my to do list that weighs on me. Instead of letting the site go downhill I wanted to let someone else keep it growing. Not only keep it going but push it in the direction I’m sure it can go.

Lori is graciously letting me hang out and post here and there so I won’t be completely gone. I’ll still be on the fanpage, commenting on posts and joining in on the forums as well.  :)

I’m so happy I created firefighter wife. It has served so many purposes over the years helping me work through this new life we entered into once he became paid. All of you have been incredible with support for me and for each other. Not once have I ever have to edit or delete a hateful comment from one of you readers. That is amazing and shows how great all of you are.  I know you’ll continue to be helpful to Lori as well.

Thank you to all of you for helping me create the community atmosphere at FFW and for becoming friends. I’m glad this isn’t a case that I’m having to say goodbye. Just a see you around in a different capacity.

With love,

    Val all I can say is that your site helped me out so much… and I am glasd you will be sticking around. Looking forward to future blogs with Lori and to see the new topics coming up. I just absolutely love it.. Had it not been for this site and the posotive comments and ideas from other Fire Fighters Wives, I probably would have let the best man and Fire Fighter I have known in the world go, and would not be getting married :D Thanks again and Cant wait to see whats coming….
