Sorry for the absence. I was out the last week or so dealing with some family health matters. I am happy to report that everybody is better now and slowly-but-surely getting back to 100 percent. I am sincerely thankful for the time off to deal with that and especially for the many kind comments, well wishes and prayers that were left for me here and sent via email and social media. It’s really appreciated.
I do feel the need to apologize. Not, of course, for leaving work to attend to my family’s needs. Any of you would do the same. But I do feel like I kind of abandoned the blog and left many to wonder what in the world was going on. Several people wrote in wondering where was their “Ten@10″ last Tuesday and Thursday and what happened to “The Mailbag,” etc. Clearly I could have done a better job of informing everybody what was going on. My sincerest apology.
However, my esteemed colleague Michael Carvell kept an eye on all things recruiting for us over at the “Prep Zone Blog.” Fortunately for him and for me it was not a terribly eventful time in recruiting the past week or so. But what there was to report he made sure got covered. In case you missed it, here are some of Carvell’s recruiting posts:
In the meantime, I’ve been somewhat out of the loop with regard to recruiting (even more than usual). I simply wasn’t in a situation to make daily phone calls or to pay very close attention to what was going on. So it’s going to take a short while for me to get back up to speed.
It’s here that I’m enlisting your help: Let me hear from you guys on what topics/subjects/recruits you want me to tackle first as I jump back in the saddle. Let me know what you’ve been hearing and seeing while I was away. I’ve got an extensive to-do list of my own and I’ll hit the ground running this morning to chase down as much as I can.
Of course, you can expect the Ten@10 to resume on Tuesday and Thursday as usual and The Mailbag will be back in all its glory this Friday. So don’t forget to email your Mailbag questions to AJCrecruiting@yahoo.com.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding. I’m glad to be back.
