Jumping In!

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.

  1. Welcome, Cheryl, to this side of the interwebs! As a newbie to the blogging world (I just started on February 3rd😉), what you said about the HR bloggers being supportive is so true! I love your sense of humor with this adventure! I will definitely be following you👍


    1. Thanks Michelle – I will be sure to follow your blog too. This was so out of my comfort zone but their support means everything. We all support and celebrate each other and that’s as it should be. There is room for everyone – love it!

  2. I’m so excited for you, Cheryl. I am looking forward to your next blog. (That means there has to be at least one more!) Great first post!


  3. This is awesome, Cheryl! I’ve been told I should write a blog, and seeing you step out of your comfort zone is inspiring!


    1. Hi Courtney, Go for it! I put this off for so long and finally just put it out there. I’m still navigating word press and my articles will mostly be on the short side, but it’s actually fun. It takes minutes to set up and then write about whatever you want. I will watch for your blogs!
