Hello, dear readers – I have missed you!
Over the past few months, we’ve been working on several projects that have kept me from blogging. The good news is that you are going to love the results of those projects (and even more, you will find them incredibly useful!).
The first is a series of blogs at Creating the Future, to replace this one. After 4 years of being the sole voice representing Creating the Future’s work, I will now be just one among many voices, writing at several blogs. Those blogs will be posted at Creating the Future’s site, and I’ll be sharing them with you one at a time, to give you the opportunity to subscribe to those new blogs as new items are posted.
Walking the Talk
The first blog to go live is our Walking the Talk blog – the place where we will put our values into action by engaging openly and transparently about pretty much everything Creating the Future is doing. If we are holding ourselves accountable for creating a future that is more cooperative, engaged, open, trusting – it only makes sense to be precisely that in doing our own work.
We have copied many of the posts about that subject from this blog, to also reside at the new blog. If you don’t find a post that was a favorite in that area, please let us know and we will make sure you have it!
The first new post in our Walking the Talk blog is about our search for a payroll processing firm. If you’ve ever found yourself in this situation, we’re sharing what we’ve learned, and we’re seeking the good, the bad and the ugly of what you know. We hope you’ll add to the list of “things to look for” (and things to avoid!).
The Future of This Blog
With Creating the Future’s blogs all residing at Creating the Future’s site, this blog is going to become my own personal blog – a place for my own pondering and wandering. I invite you to stay connected here.
Over the next few months, I will also use this space to alert you to new posts at the new blogs, until the transition has been fully completed. I encourage you to subscribe to whichever of those blogs you will find helpful in your work.
So stay tuned, as we continue to build the movement for making visionary community improvement the norm for organizations, rather than the exception. We know you will be inspired, energized – and that your work will become more effective – as we continue to roll out new programs for creating the future of our world.
