One Year Later

Just over one year ago, I dipped my toes in the blogging water and was delighted to discover that the temperature was fine.  In fact, swimming in this pool during the last year has been a ton of fun.  And, along the way I’ve learned a great deal — about knowledge management and about life.  Most of all, I’ve been taught time and time again how wonderfully generous bloggers can be.

I’d like to take a moment in my (extended) first anniversary celebration to thank some marvelous folks who have supported my blogging and Twitter efforts by their timely encouragement, stimulating comments, helpful linking and good advice about social media and life:

Over the course of this year, I’ve learned from each of these people and have come to appreciate deeply their expertise and kindness.  They’ve gone above and beyond the call duty in extending a helping hand to me.  To each of them I offer my sincere thanks.

And, I would be remiss if I failed to acknowledge the many wonderful folks who have taken the time to read my posts and leave comments or send me an e-mail.  Every time you do this, you remind me that the real fun in this exercise is the conversation we have and the learning that results.   Your input has been priceless and I truly appreciate it.

Now, on to another year of blogging and conversation.
