… I shouldn’t have left you … Depending on the era you were born, you can finish that lyric in any number of ways.
It’s hard to believe it’s been over 2 months since I last posted anything on this blog. I’ve never gone that long without writing since I launched 3 years ago. Yikes and yuck!
The stuff of life and work just got to me. I couldn’t make the time and mental space to be creative. I try to be a practical and positive voice in the HR blogosphere. When my daily happenings are less than that, it’s hard to push the challenges aside and speak from a clear, neutral place. So instead of sharing sadness and snark, I chose silence.
There were events and moments that made me want to say something … but then I’d sit in front of my computer and nothing would come out. Soon, the moment would pass and the idea wouldn’t really be relevant anymore.
Sigh. It happens to everyone, I suppose.
I wasn’t a complete lazy lima bean in the meanwhile. I wrote 3 posts AND appeared on Drive Thru HR radio AND collaborated on a fantastic e-book with the awesome team of bloggers over at Performance I Create. You should check all that out as well as subscribe to PIC because there is new, great content there almost daily.
I was also the featured speaker for a webinar on HR.com (you can get HRCI credit for watching the replay)–I spoke at a couple of local events in NC as well
Best of all, I got a new job!! And with that, I know my work-life balance will come back to equilibrium.
Still, with all that going on, I didn’t post any new content here. I regret that. However, there’s nothing I can do about it now — except apologize to my readers for staying gone so long and get my butt back in the blogging saddle.
So that’s what I’m doing. Today … Buzz is back. Buckle up! 😉
