I’m not very adventurous. You won’t find me jumping out of an airplane or cliff diving. Ever. You won’t find me scuba diving or swimming with dolphins. Ever. You won’t find me on a ski lift in the mountains or touring caves. Ever. But you WILL find me way outside of my comfort zone and jumping in with no life jacket to the world of blogging. At least for one blog. I committed to #hrtribe that I would write one blog this year and if I didn’t like it, I was done.
So there you have it. This is my first blog and I have no idea what I’m doing. But as with life and the wonderful world of HR, I’ll learn as I go. And I won’t fail or fall flat on my face. You know why? Because HR bloggers support each other and celebrate each other’s successes. We have each other’s backs. And that’s all I need to put myself out there.
Who am I to think I can pull off a blog? I’m a baby boomer HR professional (sounds better than “seasoned”) who has the good fortune of working at a great law firm in human resources. I’ve got experiences and opinions to share that may resonate with others. As a continual learner, I am excited and refreshed by the ever changing world of HR and I’m happy to be part of it. So this first blog (there will be at least one more) is dedicated to #hrtribe #hrbloggers who have braved and paved the way.
