This is the first blog post of my very own. I am a blogger for the USCG. No – I don’t rescue people in the middle of the perfect storm, or remove thousands of pounds of drugs from entering our country – not directly anyway. 🙂 Most of my blogs are centered around CG Logistics. I could sing hallelujah to the mountains about all the cool stuff happening in our organization with regards to our Logistics Transformation…If you stay tuned, you’ll probably hear alot about it, as well as my take on how Social Media has been working in our organization. You’ll probably hear alot more stuff, too, which brings me to….
So, if I already blog there, what am I doing here? The fact of the matter is – I have caught the Social Media bug. I enjoy sharing my thoughts and hearing the thoughts of others. I have become addicted to the motivation I sometimes feel after reading someone’s posts. I have also become addicted to passing it on and believing someone experienced the same. At work I invite those kinds of conversations – the ones that come unexpectedly when someone shares an idea with you – and all of a sudden…you’re THINKING…you’re INSPIRED…and whatever you’re doing seems just a little more important than it was before. If you don’t know what I’m talking about…well…I’m so sorry. Follow the right people and maybe you will.
I’ll end with that thought. Thank you for reading and being a part of this experience for me. I’m glad to be a part of a group of fellow “sharers” and collaborators and look forward to keeping up with you all.
