Dan Nuroo! Where’s the mojo?
I was once prolific, a nightly blogger, commenter, commentator, participant or stream filler! I’m more of a lurker at the moment, and it’s hard to put a finger on the reason.
There’s heaps going on out in the blogosphere, some of it is even interesting. There’s still debate that rages on in the Recruiting space, the old chestnuts of “Social media = silver bullet” “Twitter is great vs Twitter sucks” “Job Boards are Dead” versus “No we’re not!” “Passive v active candidates” etc etc etc blah blah blah ad infinitum.
So, why aren’t I blogging? Looking through the archives here, it really is sparodic. For the last couple of years really. Probably co-incides with a few core life events. Bub number 3 and now changing jobs twice… that, it seems puts a dampener on things. I have a number of half written posts here, is it the fact that I’m too spent to finish them? Am I not happy with the product I’m producing? Or just the fact that another bright shiny object catches my eye? Am I self conscious because of the vast quantity of posting happening?
Honestly probably a mix of all of the above, the general weariness a new Bub brings to a family, my wife starting a business, a whole heap of focus on 2 new jobs, it really doesn’t leave a lot of mental space for output. That said, this is about to change! I preach (I actually call it evangelising, but we all know the truth) this stuff to people, I am now going to start “Doing as I say”, be warned more content will start coming from this page. Doing makes doing happen, action reinvents itself. I need to get back into this and stir some creative juices, there are ideas I need to have, discussions I need to generate. GAME ON! Minimum one a week! promise (I hope)
