Why Splashpress? Because not only do they have the people that have a passion for publishing online content, but they also have the resources to make things happen without being too large as to forget the core of what makes 9rules special, the community. Much of the Splashpress team have been fans of 9rules for years so this will only make the transition easier as they understand the purpose of 9rules and why it is important to continue to push quality content to the forefront of the web.
QOT is also a member of 9rules and we got selected in May 2008 in the round 6. Getting into 9rules was a proud moment for any blog as it was very difficult to get in. I remember how thousands of blogs lined up during the 24 hour submission rounds they opened few times a year.
9rules indeed aggregates the best content in the blogosphere and now lets see how Splashpress will guide 9rules and all its members.
