Did you see it? I changed the name of my blog!
I’d been thinking about this for some time, because I wanted my blog to have more of an identity, and yesterday during coffee with a friend (thanks, Betsy!), the name “Blogvocate” was born. I added the “HR,” and I gotta say—I like it.
What is a “blogvocate” you ask? Well, a blogvocate is someone who advocates by blogging, and that’s what I do. I use this blog to advocate for functional workplaces, improved race relations, courageous leadership, kindness, humility and gratitude, reasoned debate, and the benefits of engaging in a bit of irreverence every now and again.
Why not, huh? I’m an HR professional, and since the day I started my first job at the age of sixteen I’ve been fascinated with the workplace and workplace dynamics. Also, I’ve already devoted many pages of this blog to the goings on at work.
So, I’ll continue writing about current events and the occasional family squabble, or whatever else takes my fancy, to be honest, but the main focus of this blog will be happenings relative to the world of work, and I’m excited about that.
I’m also excited about Stinky Stew™, the book I’m writing, because this book is an unapologetic offering to employees who are being beaten up by their workplaces, and if anyone needs an advocate, they do. So please take a moment to check out an excerpt here, and feel free to leave a comment. I’d love to incorporate reader feedback into the final manuscript.
