About the Blog

#Optimism and Irony is a continuation of the Changing Horses experiment.  What does that mean?  It means I’m displaying the life of a busy executive, thinking out loud (on 100% recycled electrons) about topics relevant to interpersonal communication, people, leadership, public speaking, and life in general.

So if you stop by my little corner of the web here’s what to expect:

  • I post most weeks three times.  Stop by at about 10am Central time on Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday and you’re nearly certain to see a new post, holidays sometimes excepted.
  • I try to keep posts somewhat short, but length is content related not based on column inches.
  • Posts could be something simple (link to a Youtube post or another site), or it could be a long diatribe on economics

I like it when readers comment.  When I posted this page I had less than a dozen confirmed readers, but if you’re reading or sharing I’d love to know.  You can RT my posts on twitter (@jameslansberry) or share them on Facebook, but leaving a comment here on the blog gets read and I try to respond to all of them.

If you’d like me to post about something in particular or have a question, leave a comment with that on any post.  I moderate comments (hate spambots!) but anyone who leaves a non-anonymous serious comment will get posted.  I’ll post a more detailed comments policy later but so far I don’t have enough readers to have problem commenters.

Thanks for stopping by…I find the writing in itself worthwhile, but being an off-the-charts extrovert, I prefer to be a part of a crowd.  So if my writing annoys you and you have a helpful comment, I’d love to hear it.  I want to be interesting and popular.  Or at least one of those.  You can’t comment on this page (it’s a page, not a post, that’s why:  isn’t that the normal thing?) but everything else is fair game!
