I have never let so much time go by without writing a blog post. Since Twitter came along, my output has definitely slowed down, even though I don’t tweet a whole heck of a lot. But lately I just haven’t had a lot to say.
My last post, about two open positions at Vancity’s AoR, Wasserman + Partners is so old, both positions have long since been filled. I write when I have something to say that requires the length of a blog post to get across, and it’s usually the result of some deep exploration I’m going through and want to discuss with all of you via my blog.
So the most troublesome thing about not blogging is that it seems clear that I haven’t been in exploring mode. Which is true. I have been in operations mode, which is far less conducive to philosophical questioning.
The main thing that took my focus in 2010 was the launching of a new intranet at Vancity, which brings social media inside the organization and creates an online network of our ~2,300 employees. That was major, and I’m very proud of the results, but it didn’t provoke much blogging.
So my personal wish for 2011 is that I am in a more philosophical, discovering mood and can use my blog as a vehicle for exploration.
