I’m working on a post for tomorrow that will solve another hardware mystery (regarding closers on classroom doors), but in the meantime, a couple of housekeeping issues…
You may have noticed that a “HELP” button was added in the header a while back. If you have a question, I’d really appreciate it if you could use this button to call for help. I know everyone is used to emailing me, calling me, stopping by, flagging down my car, or any of the various other ways of getting my attention, but if you use the Help button it’s easier for me to keep track of requests that come via the blog. It’s tough to show the value of social media and blogging but I think this site has become a valuable resource, and maintaining the records of help requests will illustrate that. The Help button currently goes straight to me so just think of it as the Batphone. Maybe I should change the image. 🙂
If you don’t have a specific request, but you want to chime in on a discussion or you just have something you want to get off your chest, you can leave a comment on any post or on the “About Me” page if you just want to show me some love or make a suggestion. All of the comments come to me for moderation before they are visible on the site. I love reading them!
There are lots of ways to engage with me and the blog, including Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, but if you REALLY want to make sure that you never miss anything, you can subscribe to be notified of new posts via email (the link is in the sidebar). You won’t have to remember to check and see if there’s anything new…you’ll get an email as soon as the new post is published. I’d love to increase the number of subscribers because this is another way to measure the level of engagement with the blog. If you are a manager and would like to subscribe your team to receive these notifications, you can just send me an email with a list of email addresses and I can subscribe them for you. If you have already subscribed but are not receiving notifications, check your “spam” or “junk” folder.
I really appreciate all of the emails, comments, and interaction from all of you, so THANK YOU and Happy Holidays!!
And here’s your gift: 🙂
Thank you to Eyal Bedrik of Entry Systems Ltd for sending me this special surprise!
