First Blog

Thanks for stopping by to read my first blog.

As I am writing it, I am reaching resolution about my theme. My blogging will always be about what is uppermost in my mind, whether a news event, a business observation or a life experience. While my first love (other than my wife and children) is communications -- what is more sacred than people or groups really communicating? -- and communications is my business (public relations, to be exact) -- communications will not always be my topic.

Regardless of my topic, I am driven to blogging to have my own column, if you will, again, something blogging has made acceptable for even public relations professionals who traditionally stay in the background. The last time I had my own column was when I was a senior at Washington University. It was called "Point of View," (not terribly original...but truthful) and it won first prize in a national competition in column writing for university newspapers sponsored by the University of Missouri School of Journalism. That proves that I can do it!

Now it is about 35 years later, and I am at it again...largely because I can self-publish rather than deal with the red tape of getting a distinguished magazine to publish it (we do that for our clients!). Now, it is also "one to one" with you...enabled by this incredible medium. I'll be sounding off weekly!

Good luck, Ken. If my experience is any guide, I think you'll find that you either feel the need to blog far MORE than once a week...or else struggling to keep up the (seemingly modest) 1/week pace!

Either way I wish you luck!
