So there are a few bloggers that are linking over to JasonAlba.com now that the SOB conference is over. This is a quick intro to why I blogged SOB and why I don’t want you to stay on this blog :p
I was asked by some friends to “blog about it” and decided that while I was in Chicago I would take notes and blog on every single speaker that I could. There were a few that where really hard to follow (break out session, or big group discussions), but for the most part I was able to take some pretty okay notes. I have already seen a number of people comment to clarify, or clarify in posts of their own, which is great. I’m not a court reporter and know I missed a bunch of things but for the most part this should be a pretty cool resource for quite a while.
Note that there were some way cool offers from MyBlogLog and Evoca that I DID NOT blog about. If you didn’t catch it then too bad – try and come next year :p
Here’s why I don’t really want you to stay on this blog though. JasonAlba.com is an outlet for me where I post things that are not related to my core business, or my mission. It’s just a place to put random thoughts that are off-brand for JibberJobber.com. I think it’s cool stuff but this is where I break rules (like, I try to not use all-caps (for the first words) in these titles, where I do on the JibberJobber blog). Also, I post daily on the JibberJobber blog, whereas I have no agenda here and post whenever (no frequency).
So, it’s not that I don’t want you to stay here, or visit, or add me to your RSS feed… but please come check out JibberJobber. Here’s what you’ll find:
The JibberJobber.com website is a personal relationship/career manager. It’s all about the relationships, right? Think of JibberJobber as your own SalesForce.com that you can have during your entire career. If you are a blogger, use it to improve your blog network and relationships. If you are “just a professional” you need this more than ever, as you should be changing jobs or careers every 3-5 years. We have a freemium model which means you get lots for free with an optional upgrade. Go get your free account now!
The JibberJobber blog is about career stuff. Once again, whether you own your own business or work for someone else, there are a number of things that you could/should do to move forward. I blog about relationships, networking, social (and unsocial) networking, tools, personal branding, etc. I have a monthly “YOU GET IT” award recognizing people that use technology to quantify their personal brand. It’s a pretty cool blog, if I do say so myself, and the latest mention in news was the Wall Street Journal’s Career Journal (check it out – you’ll even see how old I am). If you are a blogger please consider sharing the link love to the JibberJobber blog.
So there you go — I blog on about 3 or 4 blogs professionally and just use this as an outlet. Stay as long as you want, but please visit JibberJobber for the good, regular stuff.
Inspired by Wendy Piersall’s presentation in Chicago, I’d like to share my mission. It’s not about being a wildly successful web entrepreneur (although it is a fun road). It’s about helping people understand career problems. Not all problems… mostly how to deal with or avoid the deep depressions of job search, job transtion, getting laid off, getting fired, etc. It is a very hard place to be, and when someone can’t provide for his/her family it can be devastating. My mission is to help people through this, or avoid this. Thanks Wendy!
Now, get on over to JibberJobber 😉
Jason has the right ideas and the network he has created is truly valuable, both to myself and to other professionals
Yay! I feel like a TOTAL success!!
Not because you were inspired by me – but because YOU are very inspiring in this post! 😀
I for one are staying put here! 😉
(JibberJobber blog is already in my reader anyway)
