My blog has been just about dead the past couple years, for one reason or another and then another (#Becauselife). I’ve occasionally posted a quick update here and there about some event, job, call for submissions, or slides from one of my talks. But I haven’t been doing the regular blogging I was doing before the life stuff happened – and I miss it!
It crosses my mind to post something probably once every few weeks, but I usually only get as far as jotting down my ideas in Evernote to come back to later. For example:
– Biggest differences between grad school and working world
– Looking at the system of a product versus just one aspect of it when doing research
– Practicing anthropologists and their favorite tools, software, etc.
– How I create discussion guides for interviews
– Being human at work, and how businesses can be more human
I wanted to post this quick hello to let people know that I plan to get back into blogging – soon. The life things that got in the way before are either gone or not as much of an issue anymore. I also recently left my job at eBay to go back to independent consulting, so I am not dealing with the constraints of having to be at a particular place at a particular time. How I spend my time is totally in my control (always has been, really), but of course that looks and feels different when you are flying solo versus working for someone else.
I also wanted to ask for input from anyone who reads Anthropologizing about the kind of content they would like to see here. Is there anything I used to talk about that you would like to see more of? Any questions you want me to answer, people you want me to feature? Please leave a comment below or send me an email.
In the mean time, here’s Todd Rundgren singing Hello, It’s Me in 1973.
