One year ago, I jumped into the blogosphere after I received my site as an incredible gift from my sister-in-law, Kathi Browne. Quick side note – she’s incredibly talented and I think you should click through on this link to get more connected to an incredible business and HR resource . . . but I digress.
I wasn’t quite sure what to expect entering the world of blogging. It was daunting to be honest because I read the great work of so many each day. I wanted to make sure that this wasn’t a hobby, but would strive to be three things: genuine, consistent and encouraging.
I understand that there are many things in business and HR that raise both concerns and frustrations. I’m not naive, and I experience those things in my roles both as an HR Director and in my volunteer life with SHRM and Boy Scouts. The difference is that I choose to take a different path, and suppose I always have.
There are more opportunities to be positive than people choose to take. It isn’t how most people look at things, and that’s a shame. So, as I enter my next year of blogging please note that I hope to lift our profession up even more and move it ahead. It doesn’t mean that you can’t have a critical eye toward things, but it does allow you to approach things differently.
Thanks for sticking with me this first year. I truly appreciate everyone who chooses to read this blog. I hope that we continue to connect. If you feel so inclined, drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or write a comment. Connect on Linked In, Twitter, Facebook, or join the HR Net, etc. We can only get better as a profession if we do it together.
Until next week . . . and hopefully years to come . . . Peace to all !!
