As many of you know, I have written the Exchange Unwashed blog for WindowsITPro.com for about five years. Recently, as a result of a disagreement with Penton Media over the direction that the site is taking, I decided to cease writing the blog.
I enjoyed writing the 574 posts covering Exchange, Exchange Online, and many aspects of Office 365. I also enjoyed writing articles for the site and its predecessor print magazines going back as far as covering Exchange 5.0 in 1997. All things come to an end, I guess.
I have plenty of work to occupy my time with client companies and customers, mostly now focusing on the impact and disruption that Office 365 is having on business models and operations. And then there’s the small matter of the next edition of the Office 365 eBook, which is on track to appear in early June as well as preparations for conferences that I have a hand in organizing (like IT/DEVConnections in Las Vegas next October) or those I plan to attend (Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta in September). In short, I won’t be looking for new things to do.
Because I like to write about technology, especially how to use technology effectively, I’ll still write posts that will appear in this blog and as guest posts on other sites (such as Lies, damn lies, and statistics obfuscate Office 365 numbers for ENow Software). However, it will be nice to have a rest from the twice-a-week writing cadence that I have followed since 2011.
Thanks for all the support and questions that I’ve received for Exchange Unwashed over the years. It’s been a blast, but now it’s time to move on.

Thank you for all your communications over the years, Tony. You helped me to be a solid Exchange engineer for a very long time. Godspeed! 🙂

Thanks… but I am not going away, you know.
I have enjoyed reading your blog. Enjoy your rest!
