Moving to the Blogosphere

Who said old dogs can't learn new tricks? I'm adding a blog to my modest web empire. Why would someone who can't find time to regularly publish his newsletter add still another writing assignment to the mix? Well here's my plan:

  • A blog will enable me to more immediately share ideas and strategies when I discover or develop them. I'm constantly learning through my consulting assigments and research, so there is (in theory) a constant pipeline of content to share with interested readers.

  • I'm hoping to generate some dialogue through comments to my blog, something I couldn't do with the newsletter. The advice and insights offered here will be much more beneficial if others will weigh in on the discussion. Please do.

  • I will continue to publish my newsletter, hopefully on a regular basis. But I will devote it primarily to articles by others, focusing my writing on this blog instead.

Anticipating that I will attract new readers to my blog (and so that I have something to share in this space from the start), I've added several of the best articles from my website. I hope you find them helpful. If you'd like me to touch on a specific topic not covered here, let me know. I'd be glad to offer my two cents worth.

The E-Quip blog, I think, fills a gap in the blogosphere. I'm not aware of another blog devoted to practice management insights for managers of technical consulting and design firms (if you know of one, let me know). Your feedback on how to better address that need is coveted. Thanks for tuning in. I hope you continue to come back to this space and join the dialogue.
