This is my 600th blog post. It’s a good time to reflect on over 13 years of blogging.

I write about leadership, innovation, knowledge management, communities, collaboration, and social media in these four blogs:

I also blogged about dining and food.


I started a KM blog in February, 2006 on Line56.com (now defunct). In February, 2007, I moved the blog to hp.com. When I left HP in 2008, I switched to Twitter.

In June, 2014. I started publishing LinkedIn Articles for posts longer than my LinkedIn Posts.

My first Quora answer was to What are some recommendations for good social media and/or digital marketing conferences to attend? in January, 2011. When Quora began offering blogs, I started one in November, 2016.

Lucidea began publishing my content in October, 2016 with KM Adoption Can be Increased Through Gamification Techniques. My first post for Lucidea was in May, 2017.

I began using Medium to restore my Line56 and hp.com blog posts in March, 2015. I now use it to make a copy of every post from every other platform. The Line56 and hp.com posts are also backed up on Quora. This ensures that my posts will continue to be available even if one platform should go away.
