This is just a quick update to note how impressed I am with the response I received from the ProBlogger job board. My job posting went live shortly after 9 AM today, and 14 hours later, I’ve received over 50 good applications for the position. Sifting through all of these submissions is going to be daunting, to say the least.
One thing I find interesting, however, is that of the 50 submissions, only 2 or 3 people decided to post comments to existing articles on my site. Those people are very smart. That small act has really helped them to stand out above the other submissions. It shows initiative and a willingness to engage via comments, which is an important part to how I want to build the site.
More to follow.
