Fire Bad Bloggers
David Peralty has written an interesting post about weeding about bad staff over at xfep.
A key quote:
Not everyone is committed to being an amazing blogger, and I understand more than most how hard it is to not only write content, but also promote it, and actively communicate with those in your niche, both on and off your blog, but as blog networks try to grow their business, they really need to make sure they have the right staff, or they will only be ruining their company in the long run.
Amen brother – amen.
I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some highly gifted bloggers – but I’ve also been unfortunate to work with some really crappy bloggers too. David is right in saying that some folks just don’t want to put in the effort that it takes to do it right – or they simply don’t care – or they just don’t have it.
And those folks need to be fired – quickly – before they become a detriment to your blog or blog network.
