MN Headhunter Blog Celebrates 3rd Birthday, Or Is It Anniversary

May 21st 2005 I started this little adventure of mine. Does that make it a birthday, because it was created or an anniversary because it is more like a relationship?

I am going to go with anniversary:

Happy Anniversary 3 Years

Writing a blog is lot like a relationship. It takes time to make it work. You have to give it attention frequently. You need to spice it up now and again.

I think I have been treating my blog better these past months. Still never show it as much attention as it deserves but I am getting better. I continue to be distracted by other things but I always seem to find my way back here.

3 years has brought 653 posts and 104,000+ visits.

I continue to see growth:

There are two new things coming that I wish I would have started years ago but will next week and that is “Job Search 101” and “Recruiter 101”. Simple tips for job seekers and recruiters to use in their activity.

The foundation for these will come from my job search presentation I give and my presentation from the Minnesota Recruiters event.

Understand, most of this will not be ground breaking thought material (hence the 101) but I am asked these questions often, I have 10+ years of search experience with a unique perspective of both sides, and having the content posted will help get to the next set of questions.

I guess that is the "spicy" part of the blog relationship. Not so exciting is it?

Anyway, thanks for stopping by.
