A Note to the Plethora of New HR Bloggers

Dear New HR Bloggers,

Welcome to the blogosphere! We're happy to have you. Honest. But, for the love of Pete will you stop posting comments to my blog that say things like this:

"Great Blog!"

"I also have something to say."


"For other business posts,"

Seriously. It bugs the snot out of me and I delete those comments.

What you can say is:

"I totally disagree with the underlying premise in your answer. Clearly blah, blah, blah and blah, blah, blah, but I think that alien life forms really were involved in this. www.mynewhrblog."


"That reminds me of a funny story. [then share story]. I put the rest of my thoughts here:"

See the difference? The first set is simply you trying to get readers by Spamming my blog (and all the other HR bloggers' blogs). The second is you participating in the discussion. If you make good comments, people will come to your blog to see what you have to say. If you just give a link, people say, "ew, spam."

I honestly do welcome you to the blogosophere and I welcome your comments. Just not your spam.

What if I just wanted to say "Great blog!"? I feel so censored.
