September 2010….the time in which XtremeHR began. Looking back, it seems like forever ago.
Anyways, as I was looking back on some of my initial posts when I started XtremeHR, I remembered why I started this blog (which I posted in my first post):
I hope for this blog to be different in that I work to challenge the status-quo.
Now, pushing the status-quo doesn’t always make you the most popular person, but if you can demonstrate results and do it respectfully, people pay attention. Which is why I feel people read my initial work – it more readily challenged the status-quo and everyday thinking. My writing (in my opinion) was definitely much clearer than today and it made you think (again, my opinion).
Fast forward to today…..I simply cannot agree that the content is intriguing nor is the writing 100%. As such, I have done some serious reflection over the past six months regarding this blog and have come to the decision that it is time to call it quits. I am not going to bore anyone with an explanation, however, know this is a good thing. The site and content currently published will continue to exist, but new content will no longer be published.
Please know the past (almost) two years with XtremeHR has been fantastic because it has afforded me the opportunity to meet and get to know so many people in the HR community that I wouldn’t have otherwise. And those connections will definitely continue via Twitter and my contributor blog, Performance I Create, so do know this is not goodbye forever. Heck, you might even catch me at an HR conference every now and then.
I want to thank all of you for your support and conversation through my exploration of the HR blogging community. But it is time to put this one to bed and move forward.
You can still contact me via email, as well at: email@example.com
It’s been real. It’s been fun. Peace.
