Penolopy Bulnick Leaving Instructables Staff Answered

That's right.  It is time for Penolopy Bulnick to move on. 

Who is this Penolopy Bulnick fella?
Well, even if you don't know who I am, I have been around for the past few years, lurking in the shadows. 
I chit chat with all of you through comments, I help those of you who have trouble posting (even if you don't want the help), I release your awesome projects when they get caught in the filters, I post to our Tumblr, Facebook, Google+ and Pinterest pages, I create the newsletter you get 3 times a week, I help assemble and edit the print books we have done through Skyhorse Publishing, and I create crazy sugary projects in my spare time :)

What are you going to do now?  Do you think you could actually get another job as awesome as Instructables?
No :)  Nothing can replace the awesomeness that is Instructables and its community, but I'm sure going to try.  I don't have any finalized plans yet, but you may yet still see me around!


I just wanted to let everyone know that even though I want to help you on the site forever, I will not be able to from now on :(

I love you all.
Goodbye :)  (after Friday, I'm still around till Friday)

WOW!???!!?! This is shocking... just ... shocking... I'm shocked!

No, it's understandable; everyone has to move on and make changes in life. Thanks for everything you have done. I really hope you keep submitting because you always make me smile. Good luck in your future.

NO, YOU CAN'T LEAVE, CAUSE, CAUSE, CAUSE, who will write the newsletter??? Awe, sad face you are going... I hope you are leaving to go do something more exciting like find a cure for CANCER or something like that. I wish you the best in whatever you decide to do and I want you to know that I will miss you... Of course you don't know that I exist and that's ok because I know that you do... Take care and enjoy life with NO REGREATS...

It's nice to put a face to a newsletter that I looked forward to so much. I am also sorry I never sent feedback - its too easy to forget to say thanks. Well, I am saying thank you now for introducing me to the amazing creative people on Instructables.

Hey there! Your bye-bye note has more views than most projects. Clearly your presence has been valuable as an instructible staff. That IS some serious compliment. Good Luck!

Nicole,

I am reeeely going to miss you! I don't know why we think we can keep all of you wonderful staff members working here forever when you all are so adventurous. I hope the rainbows bring you a surprise pot (of gold) filled with everything you imagine would be perfect. Your hard work has been much appreciated. I hope we will see you around sharing more of your wonderful instructables. Stay awesome!

By the way, I have always wanted to ask you if you love cats and own one? I love them but have not had a pet cat for a long time. After I move I am going to get a lap kitty.

Penolopy I already have many times LOL. As a matter of fact I took this picture about a week ago and thought of you! We had a double rainbow just for you but the picture did not show the second rainbow. Hoping you receive many double or triple rainbows that will make you a happy girl!
