I'm a fan of gadgets, as you may know, and therefore really liked the Gizmodo, a weblog all about gadgets. Today I learned that Gizmodo's editor, Peter Rojas, has left to start his own new gadget weblog called Engadget.
Peter is a great guy. I wish him lots of success with his new Engadget weblog. I've had a several email discussions with Peter since while he ran Gizmodo, sharing stories, or pointing out typos or web code errors I'd seen. Peter was always very cordial, always responded to my emails, and was often quite funny in his reponses.
I'm also pleased that he's continuing to push forward the idea of a blog as a moneymaking venture. While I prefer to blog for fun and to give something back to the web community, I think it's positive to see good bloggers earning something from their work.
If you're a fan of Gizmodo, be sure to check out Engadget and add it to your favorites or your RSS feed aggregator.
Have a great weekend!
