Introducing FreelanceFolder’s New Owner

Hi Guys, Mason Hipp here. For those of you who aren’t familiar with my history, my wife Natalie and I have been the owners of FreelanceFolder for the past five years.

Before us was Jon Phillips (the original founder of FreelanceFolder) and now, I’m excited and a bit nostalgic to say, we are handing off the torch yet again to a new owner. The actual transfer happened a bit before January, and I think the new owner is primed and ready to bring some new energy to this site.

It’s a bit sad to be leaving such a thriving community, but I think it is for the best. In the past five years we’ve written and published The Unlimited Freelancer, designed and coded The Client Machine, and spent thousands of hours creating a site where independent workers everywhere can hang out. After all of this, frankly, we’ve become a bit burnt out. It is my hope that our new owner will be able to take things from here and propel FreelanceFolder into 2012 with tremendous success.

As for me, I will be moving to work full-time on our other site If you’re into design, you know I’d beĀ ecstaticĀ to see you on this new site, but it is no FreelanceFolder replacement — and you can bet I’ll still be around here in some format or another.

So. Enjoy the site, keep commenting and submitting articles, and continue to make this the best freelance community on the web. It’s been a great five years, and I want to thank all of you for being a part of our lives.

We will miss you,

— Mason and Natalie
