Welcome, I Think March 25, 2010Posted by Chuck Musciano in Random Musings.
In one of those “timing is everything” moments, this blog has been mentioned in the general media just as I’ve gone on hiatus for a bit. I can only imagine the reaction of those who visit, expecting something new, only to be told that I won’t be writing anything new, at least for a little while.
I appreciate your time and would offer two alternatives:
- In lieu of blogging, I’ve shifted to a different kind of conversation on Twitter, tweeting more and engaging in dialog more often. While I’ve been on Twitter for almost two years, I’m experimenting with how it might be used to reach people in smaller snippets. I’m also tinkering with ways to manage Twitter more effectively, which still seems to elude me (and lots of other people).
- Much of the content on this site is not time-sensitive. In fact, one of the reasons I paused was that I was starting to write the same things over and over. I’ve been heartened to see that traffic to the blog has continued at a sustained level as people discover older but still-relevant posts through Google and many cross-links. In just the past week or so, these topics are still attracting readers:
- The Original Social Media Guru – Dale Carnegie figured out how to reach people, way before Facebook
- Measuring Metrics -The value (or lack thereof) in measuring things
- Three Envelopes -Timeless advice on avoiding disaster
- The Happy Path – Are you testing what you need to be testing?
- Arbitrary Boundaries – the danger of pigeonholing people
and a perennial favorite
- “…I’ll never go hungry again” – Scarlett O’Hara as an indicator of generational disconnect
Until I resume writing, I hope you’ll join me on Twitter and take time to explore the archives on this blog. I trust you’ll find value here, engage in some of the conversations, and stick with me until I pick things back up. Until then, look me up on Twitter!
