Blogging: Does It Mean Anything

(August 10, 2006)
It's a privilege to have the chance to be published on Recruiting.com. I have watched the evolution of Jason's operation with the rest of the audience. I am hopeful that this grand experiment will end up becoming an enduring institution in the Recruiting Industry. Jason Davis is a great connector of people and ideas. Jason Goldberg is an extraordinary patron for the venture.

So, the real question has to be, "Does all of this BS about blogging actually amount to a hill of beans?" "Does anyone, other than other bloggers hoping to get some traffic for their ventures actually pay attention to all of these great buckets of eyewash." "Is anything interesting really being built here?" "What is the enduring value of this explosion in commentary and opinion?"

Here's the kicker.

I'd like to hear from people who don't have blogs or some other axe to grind. If bloggers and blogging provide real value, then we should be able to coax responses from some folks who have received that value.

From my perspective, the vast majority of comments on postings come from other bloggers. I think that obscures the question of whether or not anyone else is actually getting something out of this. If you are a blogger, I beg your indulgence. Please don't respond to this posting in the comments section.

Let's leave this one posting and its comments in the hands of people who just read the blogs. Please.

Now, readers, could you let us know what you get from reading the recruiting blogs, what you don't get and what you hate most. It's really important. I simply can't recall seeing this question asked before.

Many of the more cynical observers of this space see blogging as an interesting form of broadcast media. That means that they believe that blogs are useful tools for shaping dialog in and around the business. If that's true, readers are nearly irrelevant. If it's not, we'll see a different story in the comments.

So, gentle readers, how about a little feedback. Do blogs provide you with value. If so, what.
