I have good news and bad news.

First the good news. Marketing Pilgrim editor Jordan McCollum has given birth to Rachel Diana— a beautiful 6lb 9oz baby girl!

Now the bad news. Jordan won’t be returning to Marketing Pilgrim. 🙁

I’ll let that sink in. The totally awesome, intelligent, witty, best-editor-a-blog-could-ever-wish-for, is retiring from Marketing Pilgrim to take care of her wonderful family.

Jordan has been a great friend and I’m going to miss her…a lot! I’m sure you will too, so please take a moment to leave her a comment and let her know she’ll be missed.

Who knows, maybe she’ll change her mind! 😉


  • Oh wow! I have to say that I’m truly happy to hear that Jordan’s got a new member of the family, and at the same time I’m sad to learn she won’t be returning to the Pilgrim… I’ve truly enjoyed her articles and insights…

    Jordan – may you and your family be blessed always with happiness!

  • Congratulations on the new addition to your family, Jordan. Andy isn’t the only one who will miss you. I’ve really enjoyed reading your blog posts over the last couple of years.

  • Ann Williams

    Congratulations, Jordan. I’ve really enjoyed your articles and will miss informing myself through your witty way with words. But as a mom, I totally approve your commitment to home and fam. Babies are the home blog… and there’s no way life could be any more satisfying or creative than that!

  • I too loved Jordan’s posts. She was my favorite next to Andy.

    My thanks to Jordan for all of the insight, and best wishes to her and her family in the future.

  • Congratulations Jordan, i hope mother and baby are both well. Will miss your expertise.
    Good luck

  • Congratulations Jordan!

    Best wishes to you and your family, especially little Rachel.

    God bless.

  • congratulation jordon . Best of luck to you.

  • Congratulations Jordan, You’ll be missed 🙂

  • Wow congrats Jordan! Happy to hear about your new addition to your family, but sad to hear about your departure from MP. You will be truly missed! We wish you the best of luck!

  • Congrats to you, Jordan. The last time you had a baby I think we had you guestblogging on the BCI blog a week later. So…could I get a post before you sign off? 😉

    No, really, congrats. You were always a good ally in this ‘blogging’ thing and I admire your ability to put up with Andy for so long. Good luck on your new adventures

  • Thanks for the well wishes, everyone! I’ve really enjoyed my time at Marketing Pilgrim—especially putting up with Andy 😉 . I’m sad to be leaving, and I’ll miss so much about this blog and this industry, especially the community and the camaraderie I felt here.

    Thanks again!

  • See what you miss on a long holiday weekend?

    Many good wishes for a long, happy and healthy life together!

  • Congratulations Jordan, best of luck!
