Welcoming MANY New Bloggers!

Stephane BoucherOctober 27, 20153 comments

The response to the latest call for bloggers has been amazing and I am very grateful.

In this post I present to you the individuals who, so far (I am still receiving applications at an impressive rate and will update this page as more bloggers are added),  have been given access to the blogging interface.  I am very pleased with the positive response and I think the near future will see the publication of many great articles, given the quality of the contributors.

It would be fantastic if you, the readers of the *related sites, would take a minute to give some feedback to the bloggers when they publish an article that you like.  The comment system is easy to use and is located at the bottom of every blog post.  I know it is an effort, in this day and age of online skimming, but I know by experience that your positive feedback is probably the best way to encourage the bloggers to give you more.  There must be a quote by some guru somewhere that says that being grateful for something attracts more of it?  Maybe not - but it seems to make sense?

If you have applied to be added to the blogging team but haven't heard back from me, it might be because:

  • your message never reached me (try again please!)
  • your message was something like 'Yes I want to blog' (or similar) with nothing more in it.  I need to know at least a little about your qualifications and what you intend to write about before I can give you access to the blogging interface.  
  • your message was written with very broken english.  My first language is french and I understand how hard it can be to learn a second language; I am not judging you at all!  But the *related sites 'official' language is english for maximum exposure and I need the bloggers to be able to write in understandable english.  If your short message to me had 10 grammatical errors in it, that might explain why you didn't hear back from me.  

In any event, although the list of new bloggers is impressive, there is always room on the *related sites for more talented writers.  Get in touch if you are interested.

Without further ado, here is the list (only the NEW bloggers are listed):

As a consultant I have worked for Ericsson, Intel, Rohde & Schwarz and so on, now my direction are stochastic processes and 5G research. I feel it's not convenient for insert picture in one blog, I suppose it's better that can insert the image directly in the blog except find another image host.

It is much easier now to insert pictures than it used to be - as simple as a drag and drop in the editor.
