Busiest Weekend in a Long Time

Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell a Friend Next Entry
So over this weekend I participated in a Jaegercon meetup in SF which drew almost 50 people. I met some pretty amazing folks there, and it was such a great spread of fannish energy and interests. It was fantastic, though I bowed out fairly early since I'd been up early. I was pretty proud that I managed some halfway decent closet cosplay with zero preparation time. On Sunday I met up with [personal profile] mrkinch and we took the train for a visit with a much smaller and intimate group which was amazingly lovely and A++ company.

Today my former boss offered me a senior position at the company he now works for. It's really tempting and also not. I loved working for him and with a supportive owner we make an unstoppable team. The starting pay is very generous, and I've been thinking about it all day, but I'm probably going to decline. I would be a lot more tempted if I didn't get along so well with my (soon to be growing!) team and if I hadn't just accepted a promotion on Friday. I like both industries quite a lot, but the main things are that I don't think I'm ready again to shoulder the sort of demands that a top position at a smaller company requires, and the changes I /can/ and have influenced in the way my company approaches their web properties is pretty huge and can potentially shift the way our greater publisher network does things in a very positive way.
