Sometimes you don't need statistics. Sometimes you don't need retrospectives. Sometimes you don't need superlatives.
This blog has changed my life.
I keep telling everyone that never before have I enjoyed my life and work so much as I do now. And this is all thanks to the decision I made in 2008 to start writing a blog.
Given what I described in my How to Change the World booklet it all makes perfect sense. Each blog post is a small step forward toward a goal. Each post can have some impact on the environment, which may then adapt and respond. Each post generates feedback, understanding, and small-term wins. And each post gives the opportunity to reconsider the goal and move in another direction.
That’s how change management works in a complex environment.
That’s how I changed the little pocket of the universe around me.
This is blog post #600. I wrote blog post #500 exactly a year ago. Readership has grown from 1240 to 1528 page views per day, and from 915 unique visits to 1078 per day. The RSS feed subscribers climbed from 5600 to 6600, and the number of Twitter followers climbed to 6800.
Again, thank you dear readers for sticking around.
You changed made my life.
