Friendship is a communicable disease, spread the infection. Susan is the community manager for Gygax Magazine. Sometimes she talks to herself on the internet.
Translated from french “Cirque Du Mot” translates as Circus of the Word. For a long time this is how I described my particular view on communications over social media.
New media brings with it a new way of communication. I always suggest that folks interested in this read the Marshal McLuhan classic “The Medium is the Message.“
For me this blog is my personal playground. It is, and always has been, the place where I experiment and share. I realized now that I have gone from Blogger —> to Community Manager, there was a need of a revamp. I took a personal inventory and re-asserted my values.
This website was built with Kraken by Chris Ferdinandi. Of all the themes I have ever had, Kraken is the fastest out of the gate. I primarily focused on the WordPress functions that would bring my vision to life.
I re-categorized my blog to focus less on expertise and more on the learning process. The top-level categories represent this perspective. I believe that we are always learning. Even as I gain skills, I never stop growing in them.
I write from the perspective of someone who is just having fun exploring their interests. There is certain exhilaration that comes from that feeling of discovery. That is what I want to pass on to my readers.
I continue to write on topics related to advocacy and leadership. It is very difficult to initiate change on the macro level, but each one of us has the power to change just one life every day by exemplifying the values that are most important to us. The workplace, conversations with colleagues, and our home life with family and friends present opportunities for us to practice.
I want to encourage you to become a leader, by encouraging you to transform your thoughts and attitudes.
