I have a feeling that Teblog has come to the end of its useful life. Postings are sporadic and run the danger of being 'promotional pieces', which is really not what blogs should be about.
The reasons are many but in my heart I've always wanted to deliver insights or information of some value. I'm finding that, this year in particular, my energies have been going elsewhere, especially into Blue & Green Tomorrow in the latter half. Plus media skills training workshops.
This focus (plus family, which I rarely write about) means I owe most of my thinking to my customers. If I have thoughts or insights into my training clients' businesses then I share them with the client, not with the outside world. And, with the magazine (and, soon, its companion website, blog and newsletter) I tend to think for its benefit, rather than surface my thinking here.
If I have any profound, general-purpose, insights then you can bet that I'm not the first to have had them and I'll simply be adding to the noise. If I find someone who's articulated them well, I am happy to link to them through Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn.* If, by some miracle, I think they're original, I'll Tweet them.
So, after six years of blogging (the first few months were on another platform) I'm seriously thinking of making this the last post.
For anyone who's been kind enough to add me to their RSS feeds, I'd like to thank you very much and hope that you've extracted the occasional nugget of value.
The blog will stay live until the next renewal, in April. But don't expect much, if anything to happen.
(The only vague germ of a thought that I've had is that if people wanted to ask me stuff, I could reply here. But, really, that could probably be done via Twitter - "Hey, @tebbo, any thoughts on ...")
So, thanks again, for your attention. See you on Twitter, maybe?
*I try to reserve Facebook for friends and family and LinkedIn for business people I know personally
