The Crux of JobMob

The Crux of JobMob

Simonne of All Tips and Tricks is running a group writing project about best blogging achievements. What about JobMob's?

Blogging Goals

Technorati tracks over 112 million blogs. That's a lot of blogs but perhaps surprisingly, they all share one or more of these few objectives:

  • Make money
  • Spread news
  • Share expertise
  • Brand people or things

Along the way, bloggers get warm and fuzzy about all sorts of blog statistics such as the number of subscribers (285 today in the JobMob Community), the number of visitors to the site on a given day, the number of comments you've left, etc.

I track these things too, but…

What Matters Most is Helping You Find Jobs

After just 8 months since JobMob's official launch, a week rarely goes by without JobMobbers emailing in with questions or thanks.

Sometimes, the messages are bittersweet like when a JobMobber unsubscribes because they found work. On the one hand it's sad to see someone go. On the other hand, the JobMob mission was accomplished.

Knowing that JobMob helps you is a terrific motivator. It's the fuel that propels the JobMob car.

That's my best blogging achievement by far– making an ongoing impact in your job search, improving your life and hopefully, enabling you to help others in kind.

Of course, making you laugh is important too.

I think this is one of ther rarest cases in which people unsubscribe because they have found what they were looking for.

Thank you for participating to my group writing project. Good luck, and may your JobMob car go further and faster with every month that passes.

Jacob,
You’re welcome. Out of the 9 entrants..I found only that you & Shelly were doing anything really humane. Most of the other participants are interested in the number of visits to their site or the amount of money they could make.
Shelly is trying to make 140 afghans for kids with cancer..and you are trying to help people get jobs….now..that’s a real achievement.
Good luck!

Jacob, you’ve got a great looking site here. Although I have no plans to move to the Holy Land. I think I’ll follow along for the time being. I’m sure I’ll learn a few things that will help my blog be more useful to readers.

@Matty, I’d appreciate it if you would contact me with your impressions on my entry. While Shelly is doing really selfless work collecting afghans for kids with cancer, I’m a little surprised that you didn’t see my post in the same category as JobMob’s.

Perhaps your feedback will help me communicate my mission better in the future.

Aaron, glad you like JobMob and thanks for the nice things you said.

I have to tell you, your entry was my #3 until I read Shelly’s. Keep up the good work!
