So getting back to business the first post was a short announcement called Going Live about my 2/2/15 Drive Thru HR blog talk radio show interview. The idea was to invite my co-speaker Dave Ryan onto the show with me to talk about HR Department of one which was the topic of our upcoming (at the time) SHRM presentation. However, I really was disappointed at how that talk turned out. I would not recommend that interview as a good listen because it just didn't flow well nor talk much about the intended topic.
Then of course my annual blogging summary called 2014 A Year In Review followed by a post inspired by a client who had an employee banned from delivering to a client due to a lack of emathy towards one of that customers employees called Employer Mandated Training. Then I took a few months off to deal with my brothers death. Upon my return I posted a short post "Blogging: It's Been A While" about upcoming speaking engagements with Dave one HRDeptof1 in Missouri and SHRM15.
Over the summer I hit the blog once a month (or at least someone did).
- The first post in June was by a student, friend, and UIS SHRM board member Joe Schwiekert about the http://donnarogershr.blogspot.com/2015/06/federal-response-to-opm-data-breach.html.
- The second post in July was another guest post by Lisa Green Brady about How Often Does a Background Check Include Social Media.
- I hit it big in August with two different posts about #MOSHRM. Well I was on the Social Media Blog Squad for that conference in addition to speaking so I better do my job, right? Anyway, the two posts were "Learn A New" or "Snag Some Swag in #MOSHRM15 Exhibition Hall where I tried to encourage attendees to go in with a positive attitude of learning and not shy away due to sales people. You really can learn a great deal when you make that your goal for attending the exhibition. I know I have especially about #HRTech. The second was to share some great ideas about conference planning which I had been a part of since 2001. #MOSHRM Conference Ingenuity was awesome and definitely worth a shout out.
