Thanks a million — and lots more to come!

I’m doing a quick little celebration here. Sometime over the past hour or so, this modest little blog recorded its one millionth “page view,” or “hit.” When I started Minding the Workplace some nine years ago, I had no idea whether it would endure or attract any interest. But thanks to you, my readers, what began as an opportunity to share some of my work and observations  — mainly about workplace bullying and abuse — has grown into a more broad-ranging source of commentary about the experience of work and related topics.

Because of a packed schedule, I admit that I’m sort of gliding into this first million. During the past six months I’ve been extremely busy on matters that overlap with many topics raised on this blog. They include co-editing (with Dr. Maureen Duffy) a forthcoming two-volume book set, Workplace Bullying and Mobbing in the United States and serving as the founding board chairperson of a new non-profit organization, the International Society for Therapeutic Jurisprudence, launched over the summer and going operational online in January. These initiatives, along with a sea of other writing and organizational commitments, have caused me to post less frequently here.

That will change next year, as I plan to resume a more frequent blogging schedule. Among other things, I’m going to be drawing regularly from Workplace Bullying and Mobbing in the United States and our more than two dozen contributors to offer snippets of commentary, research, and insight on work abuse. There’s so much in these two volumes that will be worth summarizing and discussing.

Of course, the world of work will continue to supply an ongoing stream of topics to write about, including cutting-edge research by scholars, compelling commentary by journalists and fellow bloggers, and real-life events and trends that demand our close attention.

I look forward to sharing this with you during the months and years to come!

  1. Congratulations David! Thanks for wearing all the hats that you do. Your research and blog impact people’s lives, as they feel so not alone in what they experience. Kudos to you. With heartfelt thanks!

  2. Congratulations! Your dedication is celebrated by your readers. You are a primary source of reference in my studies of workplace drama.

  3. You’re worth a million to us who need some sense of relief from this crime gone unpunished called workplace bullying! I would love a signed copy with both of your signatures of your soon to be released manual on Workplace Bully if that is possible…..it would mean a lot!

  4. David,

    Congratulations for the 1MIL mark. It is a very important subject and without harsher employment laws, neither bullying, nor mobbing are going to disappear any time soon.

    Bullies and Head Mobbers have character deficiencies that propel them in these positions of force and power. If we don’t clone only good people, bullies continue to exist, and God forbids of who makes the decision on what “good people” mean.

    Congratulations for your dedicated work that supports so many of us.

    We need more individuals like you and the folks at the WBI to help the targets of those with serious personality disorders.
    Keep up the great work!!!

  7. You know David it would be a great opportunity for all involved if you and your co-author Dr. Duffy were invited on the show to feature you upcoming book release on WAMC’s Roundtable with Joe Donahue and Sarah Laduke. They have a incredible large listener base in a wide broadcast area covering parts of multiple states here in the northeast. For what it’s worth……the world needs to hear about this subject…..It’s interesting because I used to donate to them but due to financial hardship from workplace bullying I stopped. This is the e-mail If you would like to be on the show …..email us at roundtable@wamc.org along with the link to their page. http://wamc.org/programs/roundtable

    Thanks for all your efforts,
