We each write a blog for our individual or corporate purpose.

I love writing but tend to use blogs for summary of issues and to generate ideas and commentary from others. I prefer positive posts or topics that will help me or others consider process improvement. I don't enjoy the sales pitch or those that judge people they don't know or rant and rave. I am not consistent in my blogs because my interest are as varied and conceptual as my time to write. I don't pretend to have deeper knowledge than others in our fields, or expertise that is beyond my means but I do like to share what I have learned or insights to help us as a profession grow. In short I blog and read blogs because I like to share and receive.

I receive an abundance from this network. Working from home it is a channel that helps me connect with my industry on a regular basis as I research new talent or creative ways to staff large companies and match candidates with careers. I am amazed at the great blogs in this social network and I want to thank all of you that contribute. I'm thankful for the regular contributors and bloggers like Maureen Sharib and Glenn Gutmacher (great colleague) that regularly share their wisdom. I also appreciate the commentary and attention I receive from people whom you may not know their names but yet they always add incredible insight. I even recognize a few with different or contradictory opinions as I believe we are stronger with diversity in our network.

I appreciate all of you because without this network I think our profession would be a little less knowledgeable. Thank you for blogging.

Thank you,

Very nice. I enjoy it here as well Susan. At times I've even appreciated the back-and-forth on topics where I might be slightly opinionated but find myself realizing I need a different perspective!

Many thanks for the mention, Sue! I am better for having known you, as well as Maureen (happy to have gotten to see her during SourceCon DC a month ago - one reason I wasn't able to make the AOEP event, which also would've been great), and quite a few others who are great sharers. The people who hoard are only limiting themselves; I believe it's a more-you-give-more-you-get situation. Coincidentally, I was speaking to a sourcer/recruiter looking for work who had reached out to me. He had a bit of that fear-of-losing-my-competitive-edge-if-I-share mentality. I tried to convince him otherwise; we'll see what happens...

Hi Susan,

This is a great place to be part of the community! I have been a fan for a long time and have met many great people here! When we are open to exchange ideas, questions, concerns, and successful stories, we are not alone in our quest to be the best that we are.
