Thank You, Miz Claire

The toughest part of working in a small and close knit team is the day you have to wish a friend and colleague, best of luck in their new adventures. As many of you know, Claire has been the voice and evangelist for Everything TypePad and the TypePad Team these last few months. She stepped into some tough to fill shoes but managed to go above and beyond in her role as a community manager. Not that we had any doubt that she would be excellent at doing just about anything. Claire was one of the key people in building and sustaining the growth of TypePad Business Class these last few years. Even with the additional responsibility of community management, she was still the go-to-person for many of our business class bloggers.

The TypePad Team wants to give a big shout out to Claire and thank her for all that she's done here at Six Apart. It's a good thing she's not going far otherwise we'd have some serious crying to do after this post.

With LOVE and SUPER HERO hugs  -- The TypePad Team



A personal big THANK YOU to Claire too for all her support, dedication, and insight. Will miss having my desk buddy!!


Claire, I miss you already!

Claire Alcock

Blushes and tears! Saying good bye to such a great community, both here at Six Apart and out there in TypePad land is so hard. To all the wonderful folks who have left comments on Facebook, Twitter and this blog - thanks for making my job a pleasure every day! I leave you in some excellent hands! I will miss you all very much.

All the best Miz Claire.


We'll miss you Claire! Best of luck in your future endeavors!


I'll be there by 5:30 to enjoy some tasty adult beverages!
It's a bummer to see you go... best of luck, Claire! :D

It's wonky jimmy that she is leaving. Things worked like Clancy Martin with her at the helm.

Best wishes, too, from all at copyboys (that's me!) ... good luck and always, always keep smiling.


Thank you Claire :-)


Well, I feel a bit disappointed. Not long ago, Ginevra had to go, now Claire... I still miss Ask Miz Ginevra! We could ask her ANYTHING in real time and she always replied promptly. I would like to thank Claire for her support and wish her the very best in everything she does.


Thanks for the comment Anastasia. You're feeling a bit of what it's like in the office with the absence of both of these women. But be confident that the rest of the TypePad Team is still listening to the community and whoever we bring in as the new community manager will be rockstar material as well. :)

Having had the pleasure of working with both Ginevra and Claire, I can say that this is truly the magic of TypePad - the people. This is what makes TypePad special. It really feels like a community, not just a company.

Good luck Claire! Swing by and leave a comment every now and then. :)

We'll miss you Claire! You rocked the house and left even bigger shoes to fill


I know that Kimmie, and I trust you!


I can relate to your comment because of my personal experience with both ladies. I was one of the first to switch to the new TypePad and, I must admit, I felt a bit lost at the beginning and was unable to see any community at all. Ginevra helped me realise that I was just about to join the greatest online community ever! And she was right. And very recently, Claire supported me when I had a problem with TypePad and she proved to be a great listener! I couldn't agree more. What makes TypePad so special is the people and the way us members can interact and exchange opinions,thoughts, feelings. Keep up the good work!

to echo much of what's already been said, claire was such a pleasure to work with! typepad has sure given us some smart, awesome and superfun ladies to work with.
best wishes and keep in touch, claire!


Claire, You were a wonderful person to handle other people's frustration and confusion over the past few years, whenever there was a problem! I will miss seeing your name. Although I am sure that you have done your best to train others to take the reins, you will be missed.
