Not any more. He's leaving the company. He already quit as Chairman and will be leaving his CEO post by the end of this month.
The company will probably find a new CEO and keep on going, but Rosenblatt's leaving sure looks like a vote of no-confidence.
Freelance writers, as always, should stay alert and avoid relying too heavily on any one company.

Another one bites the dust. It's the same old story that we've heard from many of the other content sites -- Bukisa never recovered from Google's Panda and Penguin updates. Changes in the policies of their advertisers -- AdSense and Chitika -- also reduced the site's income.
The site is still up, and management is hoping you will choose to leave your content on the site to share your knowledge and to promote yourself as an expert. However, you are free to edit or delete your content or remove your account entirely at any time.
Anyone here write for them? If so, were you expecting this or did it catch you by surprise?

I felt the need for more privacy and decided to take down the posts that showed my content-site income.
I didn't delete them completely, though. They're still here in draft form in case I ever change my mind and decide to repost them.

Hi. I haven't written in this blog for almost a year. I got tried of tracking and publishing my content-site income. It got to be too much trouble for the small amount of money I was making. I may start doing it again at some point, on a less detailed scale, but I have to think about that.
For now, I'd like to update what I know about what's been going on with the sites since the last time I wrote here.

Helium member Eszter Vajda interviewed CEO Mark Ranalli (she in her dining room, he in his office, via a Skype-like video system) with 15 people listening.
If you're familiar with Helium, there wasn't much in the call that you haven't heard before. The main bit of news was that the new site design, long promised to be unrolled by the end of this year, will probably be delayed until next year.

I thought it would be fun to try some polls. This one asks which content site has paid you the most during the last 30 days.
