I am No Longer a Community Manager

As of Friday, I am no longer the Community Manager at PicApp. While the idea of the job was amazing, the end result just didn’t fit what I was looking for. I still think PicApp is a great product, and I wish them all the success in the world, but I felt more like another marketing arm for the company than a true community manager.

In the end, I felt that I wasn’t able to continue to work towards my personal goals with regards to networking, building my reputation and brand, while also doing what was required of me at PicApp.

I really believe that a lot of my issues probably stem from misunderstandings and communication issues that come with working remotely for a company with strong goals, and a very talented team. Even though I was only there a short time, I already know that I am going to miss their energy, determination and drive.

I know that in the future bloggers will be hearing much more from PicApp, and also from me.

    Hi David,
    Thanks for your effort & work you did at PicApp. Although it was a short period, I learned quite a bit from an experience blogger as you.
    I wish you all the best & good luck in whatever you choose to do.

    Hey David – it was an absolute pleasure, and a good learning experience, to work with you! Although no surprise there – that’s how Canadians tend to be 🙂
    Be sure to keep in touch!

    I always try to make sure I have new things lined up before I leave a job. 🙂

    I can’t wait to share what I am learning as I learn it at the new job. I will be announcing more details about my new job sometime in early August. I don’t start until the 4th, and until then, I am doing a crazy amount of freelance work to pay the bills.

    Thanks to Etay and Karen from PicApp for stopping by, I really appreciate it.

    Glad to see you will be moving onto something that will make you happy. If you are happy with what you do, that is the ultimate payoff in life.
