HR Observations at Omega HR Solutions turned NINE on August 31. I must admit, when I first started I really did not expect to still be doing this nine years later. During that time I have posted 1485 posts. Wow nearly 1500 posts!
I will admit not all the posts are mine. I have accepted guest writers on occasion. I get offered some good content that I use from outside sources, but generally only 2 or 3 per month are from the outside. I have repurposed material mostly because the subjects don’t go out of fashion and if the material was good a couple of years ago it should be good now.
Writing about the future
I have added a regular feature called Future Friday where I talk about things that I think HR professionals should be paying attention to in order to be prepared for the coming years. I occasionally do a book review, or publish a podcast or even post a video. The majority of what I do however is publish written content on HR compliance subjects.
Many HR bloggers don’t write about that stuff. It is not “sexy” like talent recruitment or popular like metrics and data. I write about the daily grind of HR. The stuff, that if ignored, will bite you in the butt, cost your company money and may cost you your job. I hope that I may have saved some of you that fate by making you aware of pending legislation or regulation.
In addition to HR Observations at Omega HR Solutions I also write for two other sites. The first of these is the brain child of Jessica Miller-Merrell. I write generally about once a week, now typically on the “future.” I have produced almost a 100 post for Blogging4Jobs.com. I also write for eSkill.com about once a month. Then I have also done some guest posting on other sites.
Lest you think that is all I do, I also run a full time consulting business, appear as a host and interviewer on several radio shows under Todd Schnick’s Dreamland umbrella. One show just getting off the ground is Naked HR Radio.
I also teach for the University of Georgia’s Professional and Continuing Education. With two other institutions I have been teaching HR certification classes for 17 years.
Oh, and I do the occasional speaking gig. You can find me on Twitter under @mikehaberman or @HRComplianceGuy or @NakedHRRadio.
So have a slice of cake and grab a glass of bubbly and help me celebrate my blogging birthday.
