According to Nick Wilson of Performancing.com, the proposed purchase of portions of Performancing.com has not come to fruition.Â Nick stated in his post:
After much discussion, we’ve decided that the deal proposed by PayPerPost just isn’t right for us or our community. It’s regrettable that we should part ways as I still feel that Dan and Ted are stand up guys breaking new ground, but in the end, the deal was just not right for them or us.
In addition, Nick reports that Performancing is no longer going to support their metrics application and are releasing the software to the community for their use while Performancing continues to lend a hand where they can and to hosting the package.Â In a classy move, Nick refers people to the new release of the Feedburner stats package which was just launched. I’m hoping to see a review of that service from a few of the contributors here.
Nick goes on to reveal the future of Performancing stating:
Well, more details to follow but the short story is that we will continue to develop Performancing Partners, our growing blog advertising network and focus the Performancing domain entirely to that end as well as our "grassroots" community — We’re proud of what we’ve helped build here, and want to continue to evolve, develop and help the community grow — the business of blogging isn’t always easy, but it’s easier when you can get some help from peers
Finally, it is stated that the Performancing blog editor for Firefox, now known as ScribeFire will launched separately under its own brand.Â I think this is the perfect move for Performancing and a smart business decision to leverage this tool that has been adopted by a great number of bloggers both professional and amateur.Â
I am going to try to follow up with Nick as this story progresses as I’m sure there will be more information that will be of interest to those in the blogging community.Â
