Wild Resiliency blog 2010 in review and looking ahead
OK, I’ve hesitated to post the 2010 year in review provided for this blog by wordpress.com, being the kind of guy who can shy away from attention…and I’ve decided to share it. In part so I can find it again for my own analysis, and I’m happy they give the blog a ‘Wow’ score. It’s higher than I’d give it so I”m looking ahead and thinking of directions and future posts and…
And like most bloggers, I’m dreaming of how I might attract way more comments, a few at least; and more readers too of course. I love my readers and yet sometimes it feels like mental masturbation here…and then I’ll get the email affirming the value of some post in someones life…. And I keep going too if for no other reason than that I write to know what I think; it’s a practice advised by Warren Bennis in my heavily marked up copy of his book, On Becoming a Leader.
FYI, the Wild Resiliency Institute web site is being redone using wordpress.org, which this site may migrate too as well. I’m thinking the Wild Resiliency Institute web site will become a web and blog site of its own and will be more targeted to the work carried on there.
I’ve also just opened a new site using the same software at larryglover.com so that I can promote my speaking and workshops free of the constraints on this free blog site. I’ve not been a good business man in too many ways to count here and so I’m focusing on business this year as part of my ‘spiritual practice’ in a more conscious way…and we’ll see where it goes. The bio information on this blog will eventually migrate over there and become a link here.
Additionally, less than a quarter of the potential blog material I write ends up on this site so…and I’ve got a load of more personal writing that I’m looking to share and thinking some of it will end up at larryglover.com as well. And then there are the books which continue to haunt me…. Stay tuned for developments in that arena.
I’m also looking to open up a blog site under my corporate name of Paradigm Ventures Inc. It will focus primarily on world view literacy.
Meanwhile, some of the posts awaiting publishing here, and in various evolutionary stages of development, include:
- Human Resiliency: The Wild Hair of Purpose and Meaning in Life
- The Resiliency that Transforms
- The Emotionally Intelligent Army
- Enhancing Resiliency Through Nature Part III: The Four Faces of Attention and Resilience — and Why You Care
- Enhancing Resiliency Through Nature Part IV: Strategies and Practices for a Resilience of Thrivability
- Reviews on Books and Resources that Shift my Thinking
And I’m wanting to share a whole lot more resources of events and people than I’ve been able to do…. This blog may move in that direction for a time as well.
OK, finally, for any regular readers who might be interested in the cruise, here is last year’s summary from wordpress.com:
The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:
The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.
