This will be my last post at Design Thinking Digest. For those that remember the more fruitful days of this blog this should come as no surprise--but it felt like a bookend was appropriate. DTD has been an experiment and online journey for me; it's had a relatively modest amount of posting—around 250 posts over the past five years and around 120,000 page views.
Around 500 folks read this blog on a regular basis--certainly breaking no social media records but nonetheless an audience that I knew well and that was very important to me. Over the last 16 months my role in Microsoft had changed from a public role to one that was a more private and inward looking one. There were simply more things I was working on that I couldn't talk about than I could and the forums of Facebook and Twitter became a more personal way to keep up with folks. The ‘long’ format of a blog simply wasn’t a medium I could take advantage of over the past year.
But things have changed. I now have a new role that has a much more public component to it and an audience that while not unfamiliar or new to me, certainly has a new pivot.
Now seems like the time to start something new and that's exactly what's going to happen over at my new blog entitled 21st Century Storytelling.
DTD won't go away right away. I'll be migrating most of my stories over to my new blog and eventually when you come to www.designthinkingdigest.com it will take you to my new blog. I hope you'll join me there and drop in to say hello again. I promise that I'll do my best to tell share new things with a fresh perspective and make sure the time you spend there is worth it. Thank you. Please join me on my next journey at 21st Century Storytelling.
