Hanging It Up For A While

A year and a half ago, I decided to jump into the recruiting blogosphere and let my voice be heard. Since then, I've written over 130 posts, mostly on recruiting, but also some on my life and personal interests. As time has gone on though, I've found it more and more difficult to write about the original subject of this blog, recruiting. Being in the role that I am with my firm, it's been difficult to delve into much detail about my views on recruiting, as those views greatly reflect what we are actually doing here currently, and I'm not ready to show my cards to the competition just yet. Work has been busy, life has been busy, to the point that it's not that I can't write new posts here, more than anything, I just haven't been motivated enough.

After contemplating this for quite a while, and with a heavy heart, I've decided to stop posting on this blog for a while, if not for good. It's been a labor of love at times, and I'm proud of what I have done here. At the very least, I think that it's made me a better writer. I've received numerous compliments on this blog from friends and colleagues, and I am eternally grateful for that. Going forward, this blog will stay live indefinitely as I know that even when I don't post for a while, it still gets visitors, especially for some who appreciate the list of Recruiting Blogs.

I won't be disappearing either. I've been pretty active on Facebook lately, and plan on diverting my writing efforts more to comments on ERE, LinkedIn and other Recruiting Blogs, so you certainly haven't heard the last of me.

I've been blogging actually for more than just the past 18 months. Before I launched this blog, I wrote a music-related blog for about 15 months (a challenge to any researchers out there who might find it???). That said, this will be the first time in 2 1/2 years that I won't be blogging. I may just start things up here again someday, or maybe, go in a different direction. Regardless, thanks again for everyone who has paid a visit here, left a comment or two, especially those who encouraged and inspired me over the years. All the best!

What is your definition of a Sourcer in Recruiting?

Ben, sorry to hear that. It's a blog I looked forward to reading several times a week. Keep up the good work and hopefully you'll be
"back on the air" soon.
