The relevant portion:

Many of you who follow me may have noticed that I practically fell off the face of the earth for most of 2009. If you still do follow me despite the boring lack of activity, I can finally tell you why I've been MIA.

It's finally been announced, and you can read about it here, in the New York Times article interviewing Brian Goldner, President of Hasbro, that I've been hired by Hasbro to be the "Creative Steward" of their famous toy "My Little Pony," and Executive Producer to the new upcoming animated television series which I developed myself.

Here's an excerpt in case you don't feel like reading the whole article:

WSJ: Tells us about the joint venture with Discovery.

Mr. Goldner: A lot of other kids networks seem to be focused on teenagers. We think there is a great opportunity to focus on the six- to 12-year-old and their parents. And we have a lot of brands that we'll use. It's not just all Hasbro programming. Certainly you will see My Little Pony and Tonka as some of the shows, but really at least a significant portion will be new ideas. The network will launch in the fall of 2010.

Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, who wrote the "Transformers" movies, a "Star Trek" movie, and the TV show "Fringe," are working on a show for us. Lauren Faust created the "Powerpuff Girls" and "Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends." She's doing a show for us;the "My Little Pony" show. We are working with Overbrook, which is Will Smith's and James Lassiter's company on two TV pilots.

(DISCLAIMER-- My husband Craig McCracken is the real creator of PPG and Foster's!!!)

I've seen the lady's work, and I think MLP folks will be pleased with what she comes up with.

Me, I still think Doug Winger's take-offs were best. =};-3
