New Adventures

by Pat Alexander on January 11, 2010 · 2 comments

Welcome to the Insurance Ecosystem. My vision for this blog is to provide you with communicators that don’t normally blog but have great views and information to share. Each of these individuals has been wooed to blog here because I think they have so much to contribute in their area of expertise. PatAlexander.Com will remain the home base for my voice. I will contribute to this site from time-to-time or enter into the conversation via comments on a particular post.

Some of these individuals are from outside the insurance world. I believe it is important to know what is happening in other industries. We in the insurance realm are usually far too focused on what is happening here and block out the rest of the world. The rest of the world is doing some really interesting things that we need to know about. Others have a few years of experience with a fresh, new outlook on our industry. There will also be some with many years of experience in the insurance industry. These individuals are more interested in where we are going than where we have been.

Some of the communicators will be weekly contributors, some monthly and others will appear as their schedules allow. The Communicators tab contains bios on everyone that has signed up so far and provided their information.

I also want to share with you cool things that we learn along the way that you may use in blogging and other social media tools. The first two cool tools my webmaster Kim Woodbridge found are:

1. This blog is mobile enabled using the WordPress Mobile Pack plugin so you may follow us on your smartphone.

2. Those communicators that Twitter and choose to be part of the list may be read via the http://twitter.com/goodies/widget_list on the sidebar. At the bottom of the Twitter box feed you will find a link to follow us on Twitter.

This site isn’t everything it will be. We can wait and be closer to perfect or we can begin communicating with you and sharing what we learn as we grow. The information in the blogs and talking with the communicators is what is most important. Everything else is just window dressing to make it more interesting.

The comments are powered by IntenseDebate. This allows us to reply directly to your comment and visa versa. So subscribe, sit back and enjoy.

Please use the comments for questions, comments and sharing of your knowledge as well. I am excited, the communicators are excited and we welcome you to become excited also about this new adventure. Also, please tell us what you need us to research or discuss.

  • Look forward to reading what the Ecosystem's communicators have to share. The industry needs to be humanized in a way that doesn't include TV spokeslizards and cavepeople and outside perspective is often helpful.
