Ian MacKenzie…posing old skool.

If there’s one thing I’ve learned from life, it’s never say never.

Also, it’s not a good idea to wash an electric dish pan while it’s still plugged in. But that’s a different story.

More importantly, I stepped away as Editor of BNT back in December 2008. The talented Julie Schwietert took the reins, among her other duties managing the rest of the Matador Network blogs.

Over the past few months, we’ve continued to publish excellent writers on a wide range of topics.

Though we realized something was missing: the personality of having an editor with a face, someone that checks in with the readers now and then to gauge their interests, their reactions, and to thank them for spending their time our sites.

For this reason, I’ve decided to return as Editor-in-Chief of BNT. And I’m bringing Christine Garvin with me, the sassy, yoga-touting, health concious blogger from California.

We’ll be publishing shorter posts, more frequently, along with our regular in-depth pieces.

This new editorial format is complimented by our new layout and site design. Feel free to explore and leave your feedback here.

As always, if you have an article you’d like to contribute, head over to our contributors page.
