Performancing Acquired by SplashPress Media

Filed as Features, General on February 15, 2007 12:18 pm

So The Press Release Reads:

SplashPress Media, owner of numerous sites including The Blog Herald, one of the oldest sites on the internet covering blogging news and new media, has announced it is acquiring the core assets of Performancing.com including the bloggers’ community and Performancing Metrics.

SplashPress Media operates and owns 30 blogs, and a variety of other online web properties. SplashPress Media has been online as a hosting company and a support agency for publishers for a few years before launching several blogs and acquiring others.

According to David Krug, “Over the last year Performancing has built up a large and loyal community of bloggers from all walks of life. They have created and provided tools and quality resources to bloggers and blogging communities. We wish to continue providing the blogosphere with affordable tools to help people join the new media revolution which is changing how we consume media. Nick Wilson, and the other Performancing founders rushed onto the scene and were quickly covered in top blogs such as TechCrunch, among others. They developed the Performancing for Firefox tool, and created a great portfolio of tools that I use to this day in my blogging. We look forward to carrying that vision forward and farther.”

Performancing.com will continue to operate as a separate division of SplashPress Media.

Aaron Brazell has a nice interview up about the purchase, and some thoughts on the future of Performancing, although even after attempting to set the facts straight. He still messed up his title.

As did Darren, and they both have problems with my name. And to think I’ve known these guys for ages.

    Congrats to Spashpress Media. Buying an impressive brand, plus the people behind it, is usually a smart move.

    And next time I’m selling my house, I’m going to call David. :-)

    At least this deal didn’t fall through like the previous one with PayPerPost. Good luck to everyone at Performancing!
