Hello, dear reader. It's been a while since we've seen each other. I'm glad you stopped back by.
It feels so strange to be (re)starting a blog in 2018. In so many ways, it feels like the world has moved beyond the quaint world of personal publishing. We are all constant consumers of bite-sized social content, snarfing down quick snacks of cute animal videos while we wait in line for our coffee. In fact, I can still recall that moment eight years ago when I decided there was no need to keep writing blog posts when I could be tweeting, sharing, and oh, yes... podcasting. Why spend all that time writing when I could say twice the words in half the time?
Yet, here I am.
I decided to come back to writing for a few reasons:
- A friend and mentor told me that it was a shame that I stopped. Apparently, I was a better writer than I thought.
- There are so many facets of what I do that just can't fit neatly into a quick social share. I have to have somewhere that I can explore those things at length. And those things need to be somewhere that others can easily refer to them when they agree/disagree/modify.
- Have you ever tried to put a podcast together? It's a lot of work.
