This is a special, non-Wednesday post, but I simply couldn’t wait until next Wednesday to share it.
Why? This is my one-hundredth blog post. To some bloggers, this might be small potatoes. There are people who blog daily, or even multiple times per day, with new ideas constantly shaping into thought-provoking posts.
And then there’s me. So the sheer fact that I’ve reached this milestone is kind of awesome!
On January 3, 2012, in some facet of a New Year’s Resolution attempt, I officially started the phase(two)learning blog, after chewing on the idea for a few months. I had no idea if I would ever find my “voice” or some cadence to my blogging habits. I also had no idea if anyone would even be listening. I really didn’t give it that much thought. All I knew was I had a few things to say about Onboarding, Learning & Development and Facilitation Skills, and I thought, maybe…just maybe…there would be a few other like-minded people out there who might appreciate it.
Two years, three months and one day later…
Thousands of followers and subscribers later…
Countless social shares later…
A number of really good friendships later…
An actual “once-a-week-on-Wednesday-mornings” posting schedule later…
We’ve arrived at one hundred posts.
You’ve let me ramble. You’ve read some of my goofy stories. You’ve shaken your fists at Status Quo with me when I’ve dished out some tough love. You’ve accepted my weird, yet enduring love for Mr. Sketch markers, analogies and slang. But most of all, you’ve listened and shared your own thoughts.
And for that, I thank you. A hundred times over.
Here’s to the next hundred,
Because I’m feeling sentimental, I have a gift for you.
Over the past few weeks, I’ve been working on an eBook:
“Onboarding Tools for Hiring Managers: Tips, Tools & Rules to Set Your New Employees Up for Success.”

In addition to the written content, there are a number of additional reflection questions, checklists and helpful resources built in – it’s like a workbook for your hiring managers!
