I love days when I can share good news and today is one of them.
I am happy to be able announce that RecruitingBlogs.com has acquired PunkRockHR.com and even more excited about being able to work with Laurie Ruettimann. Laurie has a great spirit and she knows how to make things work. If you have not been to her blog in the past, you should go take a look. It's quite easy to see that she does not operate in a vacuum. Her blog has traction, her blog is growing and she is an in demand person with respect to her writing and speaking all over the place. In fact, she is chairing the Social Recruiting Summit next month in New York City.
When I look at PunkRockHR.com and the way it is set up and the way other Human Resource Blogs are set up, it reminds me of the way a lot of recruiting related blogs used to look like a long time ago. PunkRockHR.com is a very well respected blog, the blog is listed and linked on many other websites and blogs and she is an output machine when it comes to writing blog posts. What is great about this is that Laurie will continue to write a lot and travel and speak and who knows, we may even throw a few parties this year.
I first talked to Laurie about a year ago and the two of us have become friends and have met a few times. We spoke a little while back and we both expressed interest in working together on some level. Now we can and we will and we are going to do very little in terms of changing PunkRockHR.com
Laurie has done a great job building her blog and she is one of those people who has to write and has to do her best to add to the growing conversation that takes place daily. Laurie, I look forward to working with you and on behalf of RecruitingBlogs.com I say welcome. It's a great blog you have built. We will do our best to keep the spirit.
