Participation…

On Sunday, I had coffee with a friend of mine, productivity enthusiast Jared Goralnick. Jared has been pretty busy recently promoting his new product, AwayFind, so I was pleased he had some time to chat.

I like meeting up with Jared because he is quite motivating, and I learn a lot from him. I consider myself knowledgeable about business, but I’m very much a newbee to the tech world. It’s great when I get time to pick Jared’s brain, since I love to learn (as a researcher, I must!).

Because I lack much of the experience you find in the rest of the tech community, I often stand on the sideline… I don’t attend all the events I could, I don’t comment as much as I should, and I have stayed somewhat anonymous as a blogger.

Jared encouraged me to put myself out into the community, and he’s right. The only way I’m going to learn and become successful in tech (or the world at large, for that matter) is to contribute. By blogging more, improving my technical skills, attending events, and participating in the discussions, I will build upon the skills I lack… and display my unique talents and perspective.

On Jared’s advice, I registered my own domain… WarWrites.com. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to migrate my blog to this new domain, set up Feedburner and Google Analytics accounts, and make other improvements. I want to make this blog a place others come that displays my unique love of finding creativity in the often mundane world of business.

I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me, but I’m excited. Thanks for the push, Jared.
