I am being reminded of something I have known for quite some time — if you don’t post, people stop showing up. It leads me to wonder who I am doing this all for. I write for a ton of reasons, but when the comments dry up, the motivation does as well. Not that I am writing for comments, but I am writing to satisfy my own need for expression and my expanding interest in community participation. I think what I miss most about it is the lack of participation. The fact that the most comments I have received in the last couple of weeks was on a test post doesn’t make me feel any better 😉
It is my own fault. I am spreading my content very thin these days. Not that I am complaining … I have been spending a ton of my time thinking about and acting on things in my day job. I know that the content of this blog has become an extension of that activity and thus less than interesting to those of you out there in the non-PSU world. I have been using this space as a sort of personal decision making sounding board — a place to articulate ideas that I am finally willing to put into place. I guess not hearing people call me names here is a good thing.
I am wondering how we get the conversation started again? I am now doing a regular weekly podcast and wonder if anyone is listening … if you are, do you have topics we should be discussing? I’d love nothing more than to drag some real questions into the ETS Talk Podcast. I’d love to hear some feedback and know if this is providing any sort of value … I know it is providing value inside my organization. Honestly, I am just enjoying creating on a regular basis. So, if you are reading and want to know what is going on, ask … if you are listening and want to push us let me know. Production must go up, but where?
