Performancing Partners Sold to Splashpress

Posted By Darren Rowse 15th of February 2007 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

More news today on the continuing sagas of Performancing.

To say they’ve had some ups and downs of late would be an under statement – but today the news is breaking that Performancing Partners has been sold to Splashpress (owners of Blogherald and numerous other blogs) and will be managed by David Krug (founder of Jack of All Blogs, 901am and numerous other blogging ventures). Aaron has an interview with David that explains it all at Technosailor. The Firefox plugin (now called Scribfire) has not been sold.

Adding to the story today is that in the change over of servers it seems that David and Splashpress have had some problems as most of today Performancing has been showing a blog called ‘BlogLouisville’ (still is for me). It looks like David and his partners have a few more gremlins to get out of the system.

I won’t rehash all the news (they will focus first on ‘community’ – then roll out the tools again – sounds like a very similar process to last time around) – but will let you listen to the podcast for yourself. Lets hope the new owners can pull it all together.

  1. […] As did Darren, and they both have problems with my name. And to think I’ve known these guys for ages. Digg it […]

  2. Just a quick clarification. It’s Krug not Krugg.
    And I did not purchase it I merely negotiated the sale its owned entirely by SplashPress Media.

    But thanks for the coverage. We hope to continue the vision and keep things simple.


  3. The server problem was an IP glitch that we had been working on for roughly 24 hours. We finally pulled it together through some great help from Ron over at Midphase.

  4. Whew — man, I am so glad the cat is finally out of the bag — I thought I was going to explode!

    All the best to Dave K and crew … they’ll rock the kasbah, that’s for sure. ;)

  8. talk about a saga, all the best for the future of the project, its sad to see interesting ideas like performance not really reach their full potential

  9. Yeah congrats – I think many folks here would have been watching with baited breath to see what was going to happen in the end there. Hope they get stuck in and make an impression
