I’m proud to provide peculiar social commentary and other stuff too my followers. Sometimes has to or something like that. Thanks for hanging out here.
This the scene of one of the shootings of Thursday, July 16, 2015 in Chattanooga, TN. The military recruiting center where the shootings began is located here. A makeshift memorial has been set up in front of this office complex that has been a place where the community has come to pay their respects to the four Marines and one Sailor who lost their lives at a Naval Reserve Center. Media outlets have been broadcasting from here for almost a week sharing the story of the act of terror but most importantly how our community has responded. It is a place where a crime took place and now it is where people are finding a new day, hope and healing.
I am not sure If I would ever want to be a famous blogger…I don’t think I have what it takes to write posts that are on that level. However what would it be like to have some fame because of your blog. My concern is that I enjoy the report with my fellow bloggers and the bigger you get the harder it becomes. I suppose you can’t have friendships with everyone and you need to have a core group of bloggers you have community with. On Tumblr I had 1500 followers at one point and I don’t know if that is ideal. Perhaps the old saying the more the merrier has some merit. Is what I have to say all that important in the scheme of things. Perhaps I should just go for it and not worry so much. Just a few things to ponder as I gain more followers.
I have been on my current job for over a year. In that time I have developed some new work operations and procedures. However as a creature of habit, things I used to do and say from my previous job creeps in. For example, I will give out the old phone number and extension by accident or I will say my old call pitch and that drives me nuts. Maybe our routines are so deeply embedded in us that its hard to break those old work habits. Maybe I should concentrate more and do things that keep me focused. I guess we are all human and will make mistakes.
