Happy 1st Birthday, Blog!

I just realized that I really started blogging exactly a year ago.

I didn’t change a thing since I began, so you can see how it began.

I was inspired by Angela Lussier and her mind-crunching book The Anti-resumé Revolution.

I eventually had a talk with her and became the european head honcho of The Anti-résumé revolution — just a résumé which is anything but a dull white page of paper— and started this blog to keep my audience updated on the boiling ideas coming their way.

I never changed my blog’s subtitle, but re-named it Commonplace as I thought the blog was delving into many more topics than just staffing/job hunting/hiring.

It is also a reference made to Michel de Montaigne who was always keeping with him a book of daily thoughts, questions, learning, etc for further reading and thinking. Something that would be commonplace for him.

This morning, I read Seth Godin’s blog and mulled upon it for a while.

Why did I started blogging in the first place? Simply put: I love writing, especially on my iPhone or iPad. Just writing and redefining writing with each post.

There is no competition with other bloggers. There is cooperation instead, and I really wish to see “self-centurd” blog owners begin to understand what a tribe, no matter how small it is, can do.

First batch!

Here’s a bunch of random questions:

-Why do I need web exposure?
-Is my Ego sick?

-Why am I seemingly competing with my peers?
-Why do they make me feel their superiority, even though, no matter their experience, we’re even?
-Who are they to judge me and pretend that the only thing they know, is they don’t know?

-Why am I driven by my lizard brain, as I know that it is pointless, exhausting and destructing?
