I like numbers.....it all started with basic math on my fingers and then progressed from there to my toes and now I am just numbers driven. But numbers alone are no longer enough - value and quality are important. My developerWorks shows you numbers! You can see how many people have visited a blog, made comments on your blog , joined a group, participated in activities and how many bookmarks for a topic or a person. Bookmarks.....bookmarks really got me. The value behind the numbers. I saw the value in adding useful resources I use/find to bookmarks, tagging those bookmarks ...all in the name of sharing. But then...then the numbers got me. I saw I was the Most Active (see below) and set a goal of at least getting to 100 bookmarks ..and now I've exceed (and plan to add more) I realize I won't always be the most active (and in fact, I hope I am not soon as I have hit my goal and can move on to just adding vs tracking) The richness of Bookmarks. impresses me to no end. - easy to share with others and easy for me to find info I find of value.
If numbers drive you (and you believe in value behind them), My developerWorks will hook you.

Blogs are about being authentic and for me to be authentic I have to have fun. I was inspired to begin this blog after reading about the Chief Happiness Officer (CHO) - happiness at work is the most important factor that contributes to good careers, happy lives and business success. My intention is to blog about the fun, the absurd, the thrills, the chills and the adventures of my developerWorks experience and about what I find on My developerWorks.. Stay tuned as during this adventure I hope to find the things that can make us laugh, challenge our thoughts, vent , ask questions and listen, listen, listen. Oh....and make a few confessions along the way too.
