Now I get it: “Time is a flat circle. Everything we’ve ever done or will do, we’re gonna do over and over and over again.”
This blog got me thinking about my first career in newspapers. For 11 years I was a sports editor for several newspapers across the country. I was amazed, in both good ways and bad ways, at the process columnists took to produce a steady stream of content. In many ways, they were bloggers…we just didn’t call them that.
Now I’m the one who has to generate content. And share and amplify. On Twitter, on LinkedIn, in blogs both internal to my company and externally. It comes full circle. Back then, tell a story in print. Now, tell a story digitally. The medium is different but at its heart it’s done the same way as it was done 20 years ago in my old newspaper life, write what you know.
This is where I’ll do that. This is where I’ll show my millennial skills and old school experience.
