I’ve taken a long hiatus as I began a new job and have been in the midst of a move. I’ve also had some time to think a bit about how I blog/why I blog/etc. I’ve actually allowed my authorship status on one blog to lapse as a result.
This blog began as an attempt to shore up my professional credentials in the area where issues of technology and organizational culture intersected. At the time I began the blog, I had just been laid off, due to state budget cuts, from an educational research position in New Jersey and I was casting about for a new professional identity in the midst of the recession.
I am at a different stage now, and am more interested in finding folks who can discuss strategies for career development, as opposed to folks who would (potentially) be impressed by any acumen I might have demonstrated. To that end, I am thinking about experimenting with a more personal style that will allow me to digest my thoughts about my career and interests.
For the moment, I am not doing much to publicize the blog. Since I have zero regular readers, this post will most likely be, for the moment, for my eyes alone. If/when I become comfortable with a new approach to blogging on this site, I will spend some more time marketing the site.
That’s it for now.
