What I’ve done

My friend Deirdré Straughan recently posted a short rant on FB in which she said:

My career – the entire span of it – is something to be proud of. I have never stopped learning and innovating, and I have worked hard to make things better for customers since long before Amazon came along.

So I have updated my resumé to include ALL my experience. With dates. This is who I am and what I’ve done.

This motivated me to finish off a piece that I’ve been kicking around for a few months, and published it here on my blog. I’ve chosen a narrative style rather than a resume, and I’ll probably revise it occasionally to add more details. Anyway, this is my career, this is what I’ve done over more than fifty years, and like Deirdré I’m really proud of it.

Blog reactivation

As the subtitle above suggests, I’ve had a blog for many years. When I was working – and particularly when I had a job that required an active presence in social media – I blogged very frequently. My recent gigs required me to keep a lower profile, and coincidentally I refocussed much of my personal commentary on channels such as Facebook and Twitter. As a result, this blog languished – it was practically moribund.

But now I’ve retired, and I feel no constraints on what I might write professionally. Furthermore, I find that I’m spending longer on Facebook than seems entirely healthy, and I’m sure that some of my friends and family are getting a bit tired of my political postings. So I’ve decided to try to switch back to blogging, and limit my engagement with Facebook. We’ll see how successful I am.

Here we go….
