Happy Birthday To My Blog

Gosh. Is that really another year gone by? It is now fourteen years since I wrote my first blog post on The Obvious? In some ways it feels like yesterday, in others it feels like I have always blogged.

When people ask me what I do I sometimes say public speaker, sometimes consultant, sometimes writer, but inside I am always thinking "I am a blogger". No I don't get paid directly for blogging but it has led to all of the work that I do. It is the core of my online life and has allowed me to travel the world and meet the most interesting and wonderful people.

The demise of blogging has been predicted each year that I have done it but it is still for me the most exciting opportunity that each of has, in however modest a way, to change the world around us. That simple combination of noticing more, thinking more, saying more and collectively achieving more.

There is still magic in it.
