I'm back

So, 9 days between posts. If you are still reading, I’m grateful.

Where have I been? Not on vacation, but getting ready for vacation.

I run a PR consulting company. In order to go on vacation, I must ensure that all of my client commitments are fulfilled and that all of the staff issues and requirements have been taken care of. That means that the pre-vacation period can turn into a multi-day sprint.

Happily, I’ve done what I had to do. Clients’ needs have been provided for. Employees have everything they need and want. And now, I can get away.

I expect that I will continue to blog while on vacation. Blogging has become a part of my routine. Reading social media exposes me to a constant stream of information and insights from others that fuels the impulse on my part to comment. So, as long as I’m in hotels that have broadband data feeds, I’ll probably post. I may miss a day or two, but I’ll post more often than not.

Kind of counterintuitive, isn’t it? Go dark for a week while at work. Then resume blogging during vacation.

  • “Go dark for a week while at work. Then resume blogging during vacation.” Like this idea, Joseph. Not really counterintuitive, actually. Vacation offers up much perspective on life, and a chance to step away from the routine to shore up and recharge… And blogging is a perfect way to capture that new-found energy and perspective.

    Have a blast!

  • We stayed with friends and relatives on our recent holiday, so I was left hoping for the best when it came to Internet access. London was no problem. Not only did Magda’s cousin have broadband and WiFi, everywhere we went I had 1-2 dozen WiFi points to choose from; many of them free of encryption.

    It seems the Poles are more cautious though. Even in the small city of Kolobrzeg on the Baltic, I would get 6-15 Wifi networks on our macbook. I never found and open one though; all of them were WEP or WPA encrypted.

    Enjoy the reliable Hotel access. I hope thet don’t charge you too much…
