In this post, we’ll explain why Joost decided to resign and what his new role will look like.
One of the reasons for Joost to sell Yoast to Newfold was because he was a bit bored. He’s been doing SEO and WordPress for well over a decade. He has always taken his responsibility for Yoast the company, the Yoast SEO plugin and the WordPress community very seriously. With that, he ignored some of his other dreams, aspirations, and ambitions. “I still love Yoast and I still want to contribute to the success and the growth of Yoast, but I have so many other dreams,” Joost de Valk explains. “After we sold Yoast, I hoped that I would be able to fulfill my ambitions within Newfold.
