Now that I’ve broadened my scope, I’m excited about some of the changes I hope to implement over the next year. Let’s take a look at some improvements, shall we?
1) More pictures: While I enjoy writing semi-long editorial content, I realize that can be pretty boring for a lot of readers. At the end of the day, we’re all fascinated by the bright, shiny objects… and in today’s blogosphere, that means pictures!
2) Posting more regularly: Since I’ve enlarged my box, I’ll have more room to run around, which should result in more brain exercise for me… resulting in more content for you! I’ve been on a 10 day posting cycle, which is incredibly too long for a blog, so I’m hoping to get it down to more like 3 days. Don’t hold me to this one just yet… these things take a little time!
3) Intersecting personal and professional: For most of us, our personal and professional life, schedule, brand, and activities are intertwined. And, like most corporate dwellers, this intersection presents challenges and accomplishments that I think deserve some discussion. How do you juggle the husband, the job, and “me time”? When should you write that thank-you note? What is that sales person REALLY thinking? Is the “rat race” worth it?
4) Spanning different communities: “Corporate” includes a lot of different types of people and subjects, and I think I can learn a lot from the whole community. My goal is to be able to bring in content and analysis from different corporate communities, in hopes that we can all learn from each other!
I’m hoping to pick up my involvement with the blog, as I’ve found it to be a great source of inspiration and documentation for the past year. It’s amazing the connections you can make when you take the time to look for them!
