This blog post is for members of RecruitingBlogs.com that run recruiting related Ning sites.
I have been thinking about this for a long time and I am in the process of some major "housecleaning"
1. If you are the administrator of a Ning network and you come to RecruitingBlogs.com
in order to build your "friend connections" so that you can then invite them to join your own network, I will ask that you put a RecruitingBlogs.com logo on the front page of your Ning site near the top of the page. If you don't, I will remove you from RecruitingBlogs.com. I will of course extend the same courtesy and if I come into your network and make friends ( which I have never done yet) I will put your logo on RecruitingBlogs.com.
2. If you run a Ning network for recruiters, and network on RecruitingBlogs.com, you must leave your activity tracker on. If you turn it off, I will remove you from RecruitingBlogs.com. I'll extend your network the same courtesy.
This is not about you the network administrator coming to RecruitingBlogs.com and making contributions in terms of blog posts and forum discussions and comments in order to strengthen the discussions but it is obvious when the intent is different than wanting to contribute to the conversation. Lately I see this more and more.
I recognize that this may come across as being a little standoffish but it's all part of me getting rid of all the things in my life that bring me down. It's a good thing to do every once in a while.
