    1. Awww, thanks for dropping by, Euan, and for the kind wishes! Much much appreciated! Yes, it’s been quite a journey! Most definitely nothing to do with your as you have been blogging long before almost anyone out there, I am sure! But it’s quite a treat seeing https://www.elsua.net making the 10th year blogiversary and still alive and kicking! 😀 hehe

      Again, much much appreciated, Euan, for the lovely wishes! Thanks!!

    1. Many many thanks, Maureen, for dropping by and for that lovely re-welcome! It’s greatly appreciated 😀 hehe Yes, it’s been quite a journey, indeed, but what an amazing one, right? Thanks a lot for spreading the message around and, like you mentioned above, #onwardsandforwards

    1. Hi Rawn, many thanks for the kind comments, and a happy blogiversary (On Forbes) for you, too! Although I know you have been blogging for much much longer than that! 😀 hehe Time flies when you are having fun, indeed, and here’s hoping to be celebrating the 20th blogiversary really soon! At the blink of an eye! 🙂

      Thanks much, once again, my friend, for the lovely wishes and a big congrats to you, too! Well done! Here’s to plenty more to come along!

    1. Hiya, Jon! Thanks ever so much, my friend, for dropping by and for those lovely comments! It’s just too funny, but I keep reflecting how, over the course of the years, those folks who I have met via blogging have still remained great friends, both online AND offline, whereas with social networking tools like FB, LI, Twitter and the like things haven’t been much the same, I am afraid. I guess it shows why. Blogging is hard, it’s a tough job, it takes lots of great effort, energy and, overall, tons of time to nurture and foster lots of personal business relationships, but, boy, isn’t it totally worth it ?!?! 🙂

      You bet it is! Thanks a lot, my dear friend, for being there all along! 😀

    1. Hiya, Joachim! Yeah, I couldn’t believe it myself when I thought the 10th year blogiversary was on October 15th and it already happened on the 10th! It will be a tough date to forget, for sure!, as the 10th is one of my all time favourite numbers hehe

      Many thanks for the words of encouragement and look forward to keep on keeping on, as Rawn mentioned above!

      Much appreciated, once again, the lovely support, faithful readership and overall commenting over the years! Thank you, sincerely, for making this blogging journey a real treat!

      Onwards! 😀 heh

    1. Hiya Sam, thanks much for dropping by and for noticing! Much appreciated the kind wishes! Yeah, it was about time that I came back and I, too, look forward to seeing your own blog coming back! It’d be a good time with the conference months before year end coming along and being able to read some pretty amazing live blogging altogether!

      Thanks a lot, my friend, once again, and bring that blog to life again, please 😀

  1. Happy Blogiversary Luis

    Your post fits nicely into a set of ideas I have brewing about the tensions I feel when I think about how I manage my personal sense-making.

    I’m increasingly aware of tensions whenever I think about long-form writing and thinking – a whole blog post feels like a lot of pressure! 🙂 I think this is perhaps why I am feeling attracted to FedWiki – the ability to quickly bang together related thoughts on pages which are never “finished” feels more accessible somehow.

    This is of course something in my mind rather than the tools themselves – there is nothing to stop any of us revisiting a blog post and revising it, but the tyranny of the timeline is sly…

    The firehose is addictive – it makes us feel “in touch with the pulse” at the same time as it weakens our ability to pause and take stock. It’s the sucrose of the knowledge world 🙂 Hence the interest in your Twitter Great Unfollowing

    Wow – I’ve just written the first draft of a blog post in a comment to your blog post – irony….

    1. Hi Julian, thanks ever so much for the feedback and for the kind wishes! Yes, indeed, it’s been quite a journey, indeed, all of those years blogging away and while things may have slowed down a bit, I still keep coming back to it as an opportunity to pause and reflect on things happening around what I learn, work on or participate in.

      There is just too much happening all around and why I appreciate to slow down a bit some times to reflect on how I’d want to make sense of what’s happening. This blog is like an extension of my brain, where I need to go and reflect on that sense making exercise you mentioned above and after having read your blog post on the topic (Highly recommended read) confirms I don’t seem to be the only one! Well done! Much enjoyed that blog post, for sure! 🙂

      I think ‘snacking around’ is just as good as it serves the purpose of finding good ideas to pause and reflect on, because we all know where the ‘real’ conversation is: on the blogs. Now and for a good while still!

      Many thanks again for dropping by and for the kind comments and look forward to the conversations, wherever they may well happen!

    1. Hi Julian, the blog comment did go through in the first round, it just got trapped on my spam folder and had to approve it and just responded to it above with some additional thoughts. As well as I left another comment in your follow-up blog post reflecting on that personal transformation journey you have already embarked on for a good while and that you reflected upon quite nicely! Well done and many thanks again for the kind wishes!

      Here’s to the next 10 years of blogging! 😀
