Happy New Year, 2015 -- A Year of Change

As I enter my last year of service to the Hawthorne Hotel, I thought it was time for a change with this blog.  When I started it on March 22, 2005 I made a pledge to myself that this is something I would do every day.  And I have.  Right up until now. . . this, my 5,000th post.

While this won't be my last post, I no longer feel that it is as relevant that I post every single day, since we do so much social media updating on FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, and other platforms which all combined have a much greater reach than our blog.

It is my plan for the rest of the time that I am here -- through some time in April is my plan right now -- that I write a blog post when a blog post is in order -- not just to write one every day.

I also plan to repost some of the more interesting posts from the past 10 years, which I hope you will enjoy.

All of these changes make this a truly New Year -- a year of change and exciting differences here at the Hawthorne Hotel.

I hope to see you here. . .

    Hi Juli,

    Has your successor been chosen yet? Sorry to see you go! Best of luck on the West Coast.

  2. Hi David,
    No successor yet. We are working on that project now. We will definitely let people know here once a decision is made. Thank you for your good wishes.
