Where’s the Old Blog?

I’ve had a few emails about why I started a new blog, what happened to the old blog, etc. Yes, in a moment of shining clarity I deleted the old blog - forever. I can’t seem to recall the exact clarity anymore that led me to do that, however. I think it had something to do with the overall focus that the blog had strayed toward. You can still see the excerpts of the postings by using Google’s Blog Search and typing “MelbourneLawrence” which was the name of the old blog. I think you’ll see what I mean.

The old blog had too much about gaming, the Miami Dolphins, and sort of random opinions. The structure that I had envisioned didn’t really pan out over time. Also, I used Google’s blogging service, which is a great way to start, but I’m much happier now with my own site using WordPress. I don’t think I would have appreciated it, though, had I not gone through my first half-year of blogging with Blogger.

When I abandoned it, my friend Alan LeStourgeon smartly took over it to point to his growing online businesses because he saw that I had actually built a bit of traffic to it. He runs a number of sites including this one, which has to be one of the longest URL’s in the world. But hey, he gets more traffic than I ever will, so who am I to talk?

The Five Dysfunctions of a Team: A Leadership FableThis new blog will be business-oriented, concentrate on efficiency and management, and will cover more technology issues. Although I may still occasionally give you my words of wisdom on the Miami Dolphins. Speaking of management and the Dolphins, I’m reading a book now called The Five Dysfunctions of a Team by Patrick Lencioni, which Nick Saban, the coach of the Dolphins, recommended. Fantastic so far.

UPDATE 5-18-06

Found some old posts from the old blog and so have reposted some of them. Nothing so great you would have missed, but at least my genius isn’t lost for all time now. You can breathe a sigh of relief now.
