HR Carnival – Safe At Home

When I was blessed with the chance to to host the HR Carnival this week, I really wanted to do something a bit different.  I’m always intrigued by the different directions people will take from a common starting point, and regular readers will know I enjoy playing with RandomPhrase.Com to generate post titles.  So the idea of trying to get everyone together for a group project, showing off our collective writing skills and diversity was too good to pass up.  And while the inspiration for the title was my love of baseball and the sheer hours of spring training games I’ve been watching, I could not have predicted some of the wonderful topics that this community has produced.  Well played to you all.

I appreciate each one of our participants, and I hope that you all take the time to read and digest these diverse and, in many cases, very personal pieces.

I am more proud than you can imagine to share with you the members of our community that are part of the “Safe at Home” edition of the HR Carnival.  Don’t look for a recap, a summary or a teaser.  I fear I wouldn’t do the posts judgement.  Click through, read their work, and then respond.  Don’t let our community be a one way conversation.
