NASA Goddard CIO Blog: But I Blog

"I am often asked why on earth do I blog; why would a federal CIO want to blog; and where do you get the courage to do this. All fascinating questions that I thought about when I started and revisited as I got an email from a CIO colleague last week...

... The note from Jim came on the heels of a hurtful criticism of my blog. I was reminded of an incident that happened when I was a teenager. I had to play a Mozart French Horn concerto. I made a mistake, freaked out and ran off the stage crying. The band director made me play again. I practiced more and made it through, but barely. I don't think I ever recovered from that stage fright; and there are many times when this blogger wants to run off the stage crying, but I blog."

Editor's note: You Just Keep On Blogging, Linda. NASA gets better every time you do.
