Thank You to the 267 Guest Post Authors!

As you may remember – nine weeks – 18 posts after the launch of I had a crisis – I was completely out of content.  But then I was saved by a question:  Would other Bloggers who had written posts related to my theme of “Leading With Questions” allow me to repost their posts as “Guest Posts” on my blog?  (of course with full attribution to them, including their photo, their brief bio and any weblinks they would like)

There was only one way to find out – ASK!  So I searched and found 5 really good posts that related to my theme of “Leading With Questions” –  and sent off emails to the authors requesting their permission.  That morning I wondered if I would hear from any of them.  But within 24 hours all 5 had responded with enthusiastic “Yes’s!”

If you have been following for any length of time you know that I am much more a “Curator” of great “Leading With Questions” content than an “Orginator.”  And the result is that you and I are the beneficiaries as great leaders from around the globe have shared their wisdom, stories and best questions with all of us!

Today I want to express my sincere “Thanks” to all 267 Guest Post Authors who have taught all of us!
