I don't like to do things small or simple, so in what I sincerely hope is the absolute last time I put myself and you through this, I have moved and changed the name of my blog.
As I'm writing this and realizing that most people that have moved blogs have basically had to start over from zero to build traffic, this seems like taking two steps in the wrong direction. However, sometimes you have to step back to grow, and I've got some compelling reasons for making the move, including:
- Integrating my former corporate web site and my blog under one content management system.
- Creating a simpler url (artpetty.com...12 characters versus the almost 40 for this site).
- Gaining the tools and the control through a hosted blog so that I can easily add planned podcasts, webcasts, forums and other tools that I will roll out this year.
- Aligning my blog's name: Management Excellence with my personal mission to promote high performance, great leadership and the pursuit of excellence in business.
All of the posts and hopefully, all of the comments have been moved to the new site, so 14 months, 160 plus essays and a tremendous number of thoughtful comments on best practices in leadership and strategy, project management, product management and marketing and sales, all remain part of the library.
For those of you that subscribe via your favorite Reader or happen across this post via Search, please take the opportunity to visit the new Management Excellence site and click on the site's feed. And don't forget to check out some of the new tools, including the live polls, free down-loadable tools and links and references to many other great resources.
Thanks so much for reading and referencing Art Petty on Management, and I hope to earn your confidence many times over in my new home at the Management Excellence blog!
