There are some changes coming to INALJ in February and one of them is that I will increase the number of postings each day. Currently I mostly post interviews with success stories and people working for some great organizations. These interviews will remain a daily thing but I will also be adding more articles, top 10 lists, etc by myself and the new Head Editors of the State and Province pages (hint, we launch Feb. 4th).
Many of the new editors are excited and getting to work on their postings. One of the main concerns that I share with them is making these posting worthwhile and dynamic. We all know many blogs are really “blahgs,” boring, not insightful and lacking context. I don’t want INALJ to turn into something that is full of filler. Quality will still be important.
I think this extends beyond just publishing webzines though and is something job hunters should be aware of. Whether posting a link on LinkedIn or contributing to an online discussion we all need to be aware that adding context to our postings matters. Don’t just share a link tell me why I should click through. Hopefully the more aware we are about this the fewer blahgs we will see and the more blogs there will be 🙂
