Did My Blog Miss Me?

It's been months and months since I wrote here. This is a tentative step. Not necessarily back, but also recognizing that the vehicle - Skype Journal - I've become a part of also restricts some of the things I want to blog about.

I've learned much by blogging hard on one subject "Skype" and how powerful a single minded focus is. The Skype Journal has far eclipsed any exposure I ever managed here. That success also paralleled Skype's success. Still one's personal blog is their own playground. This one remains mine.

There are many things I've not blogged over six months that I would have liked to. Many new things in social media. Lots more on holding conversations about change. Add in collaboration, and futures research. There are also bloggy developments and wiki initiatives I've tried and been part of.

So you may ask. Why blog here today? I'm not quite sure although I believe it traces to the desire to just be a "blogger". I've recently felt pressure in some quarters to act more like a journalist. My answer is I'm not a journalist and never intended to be. It's not that I don't like interviews and following up on facts. It's just those aspects can become very time consuming. I'm much more interested in creating applications and solutions for tomorrow today.

I choose to look at things based on the info available to me. I think about what consumers want, and what I'd observe if I saw many using a product and their responses. So a lot are just simply my observations. It's inferred, my suggestion and opinion. What's most important to me is my voice is authentic and trusted.

Thus blogging remains a thinking-out-loud pursuit for me. It's why I first decided to take up blogging and provided so many observations and ideas. I've kept sharing them freely, hoping that they will grow into bigger things and ultimately make their way back.
