Here is my first blog entry - after eight years of writing a newsletter.
I'll still continue to publish a newsletter from time to time. The newsletter gives me a space to develop ideas in more depth and to stay in touch with those who aren't into 'that blog stuff.'
The blog format gives several advantages not available with a newsletter.
It's easier for people interested in succession planning to find me through my 'tags' and the search engine system. The expansion of my contacts through the newsletter was mostly people who I had met - a slow process.
Blogs are much easier to publish so I plan to produce an issue much more often that I can so a newsletter.
The interaction with blog readers is more robust. Readers can make comments that I and other readers can read and respond to. The result is more dialogue, more trading of ideas and through that dialogue a greater chance for all of us to learn.
So here we go! SUCCESSION SUCCESS - the blog, is up and running.
