One more year of blogging. The first year – over the past five years of blogging – when I have managed to consistently blog throughout the year, month in, month out. 63 posts. Many comments, quite some likes and ratings. A good year.

This is all thanks to youūüôā¬†Thanks to your interactions on this blog, on Twitter, LinkedIn etc.¬†Your readership makes this blog worth keeping up and I can’t express my gratitude¬†warmly enough for engaging with me and my posts and helping me reflect continually at different levels and conversing with the quality hearts and minds that you have.

As I am going on home leave for the end of the year, looking back at this good year, here are some final reflections, with some inspiration from John Stepper’s reflection post about ¬† his first 1.5 years of blogging.

The 5 most successful (most viewed) posts this year were:

  1. Portrait of the modern knowledge worker
  2. Tinkering with tools: what’s up with Yammer?
  3. Managing or facilitating change, not just a question of words
  4. Settling the eternal semantic debate: what is knowledge, what is information
  5. What the heck is knowledge anyways: from commodity to capacity and insights

The 10 posts I enjoyed writing most were:

This year has also seen the development of a¬†Pinterest board about this blog. It’s a nicer way to navigate through a see of posts (152 to date). You reckon?

Next year I sure will come back to blogging with renewed energy, ideas and inspiration, about the content and the process of learning. Holidays are great for that: they feed learning by letting parts of your brain rest while activating others and stimulating our hearts… well at least mine in this case.

So have (hopefully) great holidays and Christmas if that means something to you, and see you in 2012! And again MANY MANY THANKS. I hope to keep exploring the role of knowledge work in social change and development work thanks to you and with you next year and beyond.

Bonnes fêtes de fin d’année !
