Yesterday was the one year anniversary of Positive Organizational Behavior and my adventures in blogging. What started as a determined experiment has become a passion. I now consider my decision to blog one of the best I have made in the last decade.
My first blog post at my original site was extremely ugly. I did not care, because I was determined to learn how to blog. Frankly, I was glad no one was reading my blog while I experimented with this new form of expression.
I’m still experimenting today. I did my first video blog on October 18, 2009, and it too was ugly! Not many people watch my videos, but I don’t care because I am determined to move up the learning curve and get better at this while no one is watching. Someday, they will watch. And if nothing else, I have created an archive of leadership philosophy for my children that I hope will serve them as they mature and long after I am gone.
Soon, I am determined to begin moving up the learning curve with podcasting. I have no idea how to even start, but I know I will. My goal is to learn it well enough to teach it to others.
As of today, there are 294 blog posts and 1444 comments at this blog. Half of those comments are mine, as I have tried hard to reply to every comment I have ever received. Honest to goodness, it still humbles me that anyone would pay attention to anything I have to say, so I am extremely grateful when someone takes the time to leave me a comment.
I also blog at The Student Branding Blog, SM@RT Reno 2010, and my own Posterous “other” blog. I am very grateful that some of my blog posts have been featured in Smartbrief and most recently at SocialMediaToday.
If you are not blogging, you should be. Anyone can do this, and everyone should.
Thanks for visiting my site. If you have any suggestions for improvement, please drop me a line and let me know. I am very much looking forward to our next year of learning and conversation about positive organizational behavior.
