Ah blognation. I can honestly say that I’ve had a great time writing for blognation. I’ve met fantastic people from around the world. There have been some fantastic tech debates behind the scenes in our group chats that proved that Sam brought together some of the best minds in the business. I’ve also been able to get access to early looks at new technology like being able to attend Apple’s launch of the new iPod. It’s all been thanks to Sam Sethi and blognation.
However, as Sam has posted today, things at blognation are changing and moving on–and so must I.
I’m putting it out there that I’m looking for a new full time gig. So, what am I looking for? First off, full time work. Sure I’ll keep blogging here regardless, but I want to focus my time, energy and skills on one company. Ideally I’d like to be a community manager or something social media related, however ebiz, marketing, product management, writing for a blog network–all these things are interesting to me. I don’t have a problem speaking in public, on the radio, or on TV. Media, well I just love it. Social Media is where I’d like to hang my hat. Lots of ways that can be done, of course. Frankly, just ask if you’re wondering if I’d be interested in something. One last thing, I’m based in Victoria BC and don’t really want to move away from here. Telecommuting? That’s not a problem. Will I consider a contract position? Sure.
If you know of someone who is looking for a writer, blogger, techie, geek, etc. have them drop me a line, tris.hussey AT gmail DOT com will work great.
Many of you might be wondering if I have any regrets about the past few months. It’s a good and fair question. I’ve thought a lot about regret and mistakes and have decided that it’s better to look at the lessons learned than regret. Regret is like fear, anger, hate, or holding a grudge-they aren’t positive for you. They drag you down.
What have I learned? Hard work pays off. Humility. I’ve learned how and when to be humble. How to ask for and accept help from others. Good lessons. Sometimes hard lessons. Life lessons, nonetheless.
