Happy Birthday to Me! and my next 49 years!
As the birthday wishes begin to roll in, I want to thank all of you in advance for connecting with me, sharing your best work with me and also supporting my work and sharing my work with others. I want you to know that you are all greatly appreciated for everything you offer to me and the world!
As I start this year long journey to 50 years old, I am making some large changes in my life and career and your support is always greatly appreciated. There will be ups and downs, but I think I am on a new, great path yet one that is similar, too.
I have already begun a move away from day-to-day technical support and towards a deeper focus on blogging, podcasting, video, new media writing and more. While providing hands-on support has provided a large part of my income (and many great, long term, relationships), I think I have come to the end of that path in my career. I want to spend the next 50 years focusing on the great and huge changes in the media and Internet world and stop, for lack of a better description, “crawling under desks.” I’m certainly not feeling old, but I am not feeling any younger, either. (LAUGH)
So, that said, I am working hard on building up the audience for my blogs, podcasts, videos and books. I’ll also be producing more books where I try to distill my decades of work and thought into ways to ease the path of others through their career, work and life. I hope you will continue to walk beside me on this journey and help me continue to help anyone I can. I have often said that “I am at my best when helping others and I expect to continue helping others as much as I can for the foreseeable future.
Thank you so much!
