The Future of Geek In the Stacks

Friends, this week I launched my new blog, Shift Your Mind, which I am really excited about. My new blog will focus on personal growth and change, especially around productivity and leadership. Please stop by and check it out, and if you like what you see subscribe to it.

Once I get Shift Your Mind rolling along, I hope to resurrect this site (probably hosted somewhere else) with a focus on IT and Libraries, two things I am really passionate about.

So again, please swing by Shift Your Mind. Also, don’t hesitate to give me a shout on Twitter

Thanks for reading!


Where Have I Been?

Just to alleviate any fears…I am alive and intend to resume blogging.  Since writing my last post, I have been working on several things:

  • First off, I had the worse bout of flu earlier this month.  I was stuck in bed for 96 hours, no lie!  What was unfortunate it that it killed my motivation to work on a lot of things for about 3 weeks.  It has admittedly been a struggle to get back on track.
  • I have spent a lot of time working on my new blog.  Since it will be a hosted WordPress site, I have had to learn a lot about creating and maintaing a WordPress site.  Additionally, I have been brainstorming on a lot of topics so I have a backlog of things to post.
  • Finally, I have been spending a lot of time just thinking.  Values, peer relationships, finances, and many other topics.  There is a lot I need to accomplish!

Be on the lookout for my new blog announcement later this week.  After that time, I will no longer be posting to this site and will probably delete it soon after.


My name is Greg Syferd. Here I share my thoughts, ideas, and random stuff I come across. For work, I am a Systems Manager at the Columbus Metropolitan Library. When unplugged I'm a husband/father, read books, and aspire to be a photographer.
