The Sand Has Run Out of the Hourglass

2011 has drawn to a close, and that means it's time to close up shop here at The Hourglass Blog. Despite my September 2011 announcement that I was moving to a new blog, traffic here at Hourglass has remained strong, allowing 2011 to post some of the best numbers in the blog's history.

Thanks to everyone for following and participating in the discussions over the past three years. I started this adventure with the intention of exploring the impact of generational shift on the leadership of our organizations and, while we have certainly done that, we have explored a number of other topics as well. All these topics have been of great interest to me, and I plan to continue exploring them at my new blog, If you've enjoyed what you've read here, I would encourage you to read, subscribe or otherwise follow my activities there.

I also want to extend my deepest thanks and appreciation to my Hourglass co-blogger, Jamie Notter. His own approach to blogging was an essential piece of the original inspiration for Hourglass. Although he did not post here as often as he would have liked, his unfailing support and generous advice helped make this blog what it was. If I made any mistakes, I'm sure it was because I wasn't listening to Jamie at the time. His own blog, Get Me Jamie Notter, is, of course, worth your attention and participation.

Best wishes to everyone for a happy and prosperous 2012!
