My Blog's Three-year Anniversary

The postings on this site are my own and don't necessarily represent IBM's positions, strategies or opinions.

Becoming Less Religious, but Remaining Loosely Devoted

For the first couple of years, I averaged 15 blog-entries a month. From June-December, 2009, I averaged eight entries a month. I don't know how many I'll average in 2010, but I do know that this blog has been a good, intimate friend to me all along.

It's where I come to:

  • Figure out what I'm thinking
  • Learn what I'm feeling
  • Re-live experiences that felt poignant to me through writing about them
  • Write and self-publish.
Since discovering Twitter, I post tweets nearly daily and like having to practice brevity. A friendly colleague offered that Twitter can deplete my soul by shifting me from the more reflective blog arena to the necessarily superficial micro-blogosphere. Her warning scared me for awhile, but as I look at my tweets, I think she's only half-right. Yes, some of them are relatively mindless, but considered altogether, I think they make a mostly sweet collection of my personality. Here is a year's worth:
