The Apprentice Blog Fired?

Some of you may know that for five seasons of The Donald, and one season of
Martha, I ran TheApprenticeBlog.com.  With a little nudging, a quiz
asking Which Apprentice Are You?,
and regular commentary about the business lessons and the candidates'
performance, I built a healthy… nay… huge active reader base.  

Then, before Donald could move west and shove his unsuspecting candidates into tents in the backyard, I sold it on eBay.   Bloggers like Terry, of Superaff.com, pointed out that the new owner "just bought themselves a whole bunch of links for peanuts." 

The
new owner introduced himself on the site, and announced his intention
to keep the site up and running, so, I've been eager to see what he did
with the site for the new season.

    yes of course I will.  I’ve offered to help him get it up and rolling again, but haven’t heard back.  It’s a shame that I can’t just take it back and get it rolling again.  But I guess that’s what “selling” means… you don’t have control any more.

    I totally hear you on this one. I’ve experienced this myself, hearing that people who have replaced me in different jobs just dropped projects I’d worked on. Sometimes it was personal priorities that differed than mine. The worst was having a manager just decide they didn’t want something I had created anymore….I resigned shortly after. I just can’t stand it that others control the outcome of work I have done, and can decide to trash it if they don’t see its value.
