Notes from the Editor
A Quick Update.
Did you know that we've published 47 issues here via #EngOps?! As I look at that number I personally find it a bit hard to believe. I thought the number was a lot smaller.
But that's what happens when you do something that you enjoy and love and that you find meaningful and valuable. Things just move forward strongly and you lose track of the time and you lose track of all of the numbers and calculations - you just simply enjoy the process and the experience.
It may sound a bit strange to talk about a newsletter like that but it's the honest truth - I've enjoyed capturing valuable resources for you and sharing them liberally and freely. This is part and parcel to who I am as a person and the company that I'm helping to put together.
With that being said, we'll be taking a small step back as we re-evaluate our efforts around all things social media. The goal is to simply review what we've done so far and ask ourselves the really hard questions, like:
Is this working in the best way possible?
Is this providing the best value for those who are receiving it?
Is this the absolute best use of our time given the many other needs of the growing business?
These are tough questions to answer but important ones and, as you already know, I've never been shy about asking hard questions, especially of myself.
Please let me know if there's anything that I can do for you and I hope to be writing to you all soon in the future. For now, enjoy one less email in your inbox weekly - that should be a good place to start.
