Post #1,100 – 11 Posts To Look Back On…
Posted by Mitch Mitchell on Aug 8, 2013
In my last post I talked about my friend Steve Borek reaching post #100 on his blog. Then I looked at my posts and realized that this one is post #1,100 for this blog; wow!
It came up kind of sneaky because I pay more attention to the number of posts I write on one of my other blogs than this one, and have more over there. But I’ve always been proud of the posts I write here because I’ve always been hopeful that I’ve helped a lot of people along the way with their leadership issues and many other topics I touch upon. That’s one of the reasons I decided to start blogging way back in 2005, and I’m happy that I made the right decision to continue blogging when my blog and website crashed in 2006 because of the wrong hosting company.
Whenever I reach these milestones I like to look back on the body of work and select some of my favorite posts during the period. I’ve selected 11 posts to recognize the 1,100, but one of them is actually part of a series of posts I wrote based on a specific topic and a live presentation I gave once. If you visit this blog often you might have your own favorites. If not, here’s an opportunity for me to highlight more of the types of things I write here. And it’s taken me 14 months to reach this next milestone; I really need to write more. Okay, here we go.
