Goodbye, Android and Me, and thank you


I’ve written hundreds of posts for Android and Me, and this is by far the most difficult I’ve had to write. In just two short days, my time as a writer and editor for the best Android site out there is coming to a close. I know the Wimberly men will take the site in awesome new directions, and each and every one of you are in good hands. I can’t thank Clark and Taylor enough for taking a shot on me as a writer, for giving me the opportunity to build my voice, and allowing me to play an integral role in the behind the scenes aspect of the site.

As far as the rest of the motley crew, I can honestly say I’ve never worked with such a great group of people, and each and every one of them has influenced me in some way or another. If I haven’t said it enough already, you guys are in truly wonderful hands, and far better writers than I will continue to bring you top-quality content.

Finally, the readers. You guys absolutely rock, and have wonderful, deep, and thoughtful conversations in the comments section. It has truly been my pleasure to engage with you as we figured out the Android world together. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve you, and for challenging me to do better and better work.

As I’m feeling a bit nostalgic, you can read my very first post on Android and Me, my official review of the newly-released Twitter for Android application from back in May 2010. I wrote a few guest posts before then (okay, a few dozen), but this was my first actual post as a paid freelancer!

If you’d like to keep in touch, you can find me on Google+ and Twitter.

      One does not simply… WALK…. to Mordor.

        I suppose, lxgeorge meant Mordor Store, where you can buy some Sauron’s eyes.

    Good luck in your future endeavours, Anthony. I read this quote somewhere a few days back…and since I love you go…
    “Two of the hardest things are saying hello for the first time, and goodbye for the last time.”

    Thanks for all the great articles!

    Hi Anthony,

    It is sad to see you leave. Even if you wrote for other sites, to me it always felt like you were from Android and Me at heart. I suppose times and situations change. I really do hope whatever you do from now on works out amazingly, bro.

    You truly mean a lot to this site and I can definitely say you have been one of my most influential teachers. Thank you very much for your helping me grow. I wish you the best and hope we run into each other sooner than later. :)

    Even though, I don’t know you personally, I’m going to really miss your writing on this site. They were always interesting and insightful. I know you write for intomobile as I follow you on G+ but are you going anywhere else or is there anywhere else that you write? Wishing you the best of luck.

    While I’ve read AaM for ~2years, I haven’t commented on a lot of articles for various reasons – nothing to do with the quality of the journalism from the regular staff, not at all. The comment boards can get messy…
    That aside, I do read a good 90-95% of the articles, and while I haven’t agreed 100% of the time – that never happens anywhere regardless. I’ve always enjoyed your blogs, Anthony. You’ve been largely objective in comparatives. Your articles have been informative and fun, easy reads without the overly goofy, trying-too-hard-to-be-entertaining blogs I see on some other sites. (I mean that in the best way! Your articles are fun for hardcore powerusers, to the “‘everyday’ Android user”), but are written like an adult rather than a hyperactive 12 -year old without being pretentious whatsoever.
    Best of luck to you, Anthony Domanico! I wish you the best in your endeavors, and hope to see you on the Android sites/boards.
    Best wishes, and may you and be happy and succeed in your journey!

  • clocinnorcal

    Best wishes to you Anthony! I actually remember your first post. I was merely a troll at the time and did not have a membership here. You know how I discovered this site? I was rooting my second Android phone “mytouch3g” and got a link to this site.
    Again, best of luck to you!
