In 2002 I started writing the eponymous Saunderslog.com. It was a grand experiment in writing, and I had fantasized about being a writer since high school. Saunderslog.com allowed me to comment, be opinionated, controversial, thoughtful, silly, and at times, I hope, insightful. It was a creative outlet the likes of which I hadn’t had in many many years, and the reception was wonderful. At one point, we crested past 180,000 visitors in a single month.
Over the last year my personal writing has taken a backseat to running the Calliflower conferencing service. Not only that, as a sometimes contributor to the very very good Voyces blog, I’ve been torn between the three “writing assignments” on my plate – Calliflower.com, Saunderslog.com and Voyces.com. All three have suffered, as I’ve personally taken on too much.
As of today, like many founders and CEO’s in the tech world, I’m moving my personal blog onto the site of my primary business. Saunderslog.com is becoming a feature of Calliflower.com. In consolidating with Calliflower, I hope to be able to write about the issues that I see in the voice market, the business insights I’ve previously offered, and the issues that we face on a day to day business running our service. At the same time I want to continue to write about my personal passions – travel, wine, the outdoors, photography, and so on, that have been the hallmarks of the old Saunderslog. In doing so, I’m inviting our customers to get to know me better, and to participate in the dialog about our business.
Shortly www.saunderslog.com will be redirected via a “301 Permanent Redirect”, and cease to exist. You won’t have to do anything to find me in my new home. The magic of the web will simply take you here. And, I hope you’ll join me on a regular basis as we go forward on this adventure in the world of new voice and internet technologies.
