Most of us work.
We talk about work at work, at home and at play. And when we talk about it on the internet, it’s called blogging.
The idea behind the badge is to encourage those who write about work to keep the conversation positive, helpful, insightful and relevant to today’s worker, employer or employee.
We wanted to give recognition to those who understand that the strength of the blogosphere comes from positive interactions, relationship and community.
Anyone who takes a positive conversation and discussion back to their blog should just let me know. I will give your blog recognition on my blog for doing what you can to help those who work.
All you need to do is start a dialogue how the workplace, something positive. Offer a new posting, feature, idea or article that will help someone. Or you can simply add an idea or a spark to a discussion that is going on here. Or, just share some story that happened to you that might help someone else manage or cope a little bit better.
As you can see, it’s easy. Post it, link to this blog, or email me at GL@jobdig.com with a link to your post or a brief description of what you did.
Let’s all work together so we all DIG OUR JOBS.
Here are the DIG YOUR JOB winners. Please visit their blogs often—they have positive messages about the workplace and how we can all DIG OUR JOBS.
In no particular order, and I will be adding more as time permits.
1. [Dr. Ellen Weber,PhD, writes at brainbasedbusiness and she is one of the first bloggers I met. I find her articles to be very different, intellectually stimulating and fun, too. I always learn something from Ellen. You can tell she is wicked smart, kind, funny and someone you would like to sit next to a dinner party.
2. Jacob Share is an Israeli blogging, job, marketing and social media expert who blogs at JOBMOB. I just met Jacob this year and he has offered me some well-needed/heeded advice. More bloggers should be like Jacob.
3. Rowan Manahan is career consultant, author and speaker based in Dublin, Ireland, who writes a blog fortifyservices. I am sure he will, if he is not already, be one of the top career coaches in Ireland. His writing style is with-it, informative and something you should not miss. His book is WHERE'S MY OASIS?
4. Same with Izabella Tabarovsky, a career coach out of Washington, DC. Her blog is positivecreativevision.com. How could we not like her blog with a title like that? She is a very interesting person, literally from Siberia ([tag]Novosibirsk[/tag]), but educated at Harvard and elsewhere along her career path. She is funny, too. When I say her name…EZZ-a-BELLA, I like to move my fingers up and down, just like Marlon Brando did.
5. Robyn McMaster, PhD, works with Ellen Weber at MITA and has a blog called brainbasedbiz. I am not sure how they do it, but both Ellen and Robyn are masters of communicating their business, their philosophy and their assistance. Both, and Robin especially, are very willing to give advice and reaction to anything remotely connected to how business leaders can use their own intellects to solve issues and problems.
6. Drew McLellan is a Des Moines-based marketing consulant who often blogs about the workplace in Drew’s Marketing Minute. I find his writings spot on and particularly insightful. He and his partner, Gavin Heaton, are the gurus behind the clever book idea THE AGE OF CONVERSATION.
7. Troy Worman is a clever writer and manager based in Florida. I routinely visit his blog for his insights on the workplace behavior. He offers up a regular dose of OUTSTANDING blogs he finds, a real service for those of us who are constantly searching for others who dig their jobs.
8. Gautom Ghosh is a management consultant out of India who writes about organizational development issues and is particularly insightful about HR issues as well as management issues. He is a very popular blogger who writes here.
9. Steve Roesler is a career coach and HR expert who I read regularly. He blogs here and is constantly on the prowl for new HR ideas, concepts and visions to share with his readers.
10. Karen Burns is a personal favorite of mine. Her working girl blog offers me, at least, a fresh perspective on literally half our workforce. She is funny and clever; plus anyone who brags about having 59 jobs is alright in my book.
11. Dan Schwabel writes at [tag]personal branding blog[/tag]. I think his insights about how we all brand ourselves are especially relevant to today’s employee and employer. His blog is a definite favorite.
12. Robert Hruzak is a special blogger over at middle zone musings since he is a Texas baby boomer. I find his ideas to be slightly off key, always funny with an element of omg-I-wish-I-had-thought -of-that to them.
13. Timothy Johnson blogs out of Des Moines on CarpeFactum, found here. I read this blog often for his insights and motivational tips. His book GUST is about office politics and is a must-read.
14. Dave Opton has used his 40+ years of experience in Human Resources to develop the premier career management firm called [tag]Execunet[/tag] for senior-level executives with salaries above $100,000. Dave has worked with executive recruiters and six-figure leaders across all industries during his 19 years as CEO and as a result, has learned about the most effective job search and career development strategies. His blog can be found here.
