Hiring Bloggers
Posted by: Jon Henke on Thursday, August 16, 2007

I have a short list of bloggers - sometimes, but not necessarily A-list bloggers - that I consider genuine, or potential, blogging stars. They have real insight, writing skill, the ability to find unique information or to see existing information in a new way. Most importantly, they can bring those elements together in a way that works on a blog.

They are the bloggers who should be hired to develop and utilize their talent on a full-time basis, as was done with Kevin Drum (Washington Monthly), Ezra Klein (American Prospect), Mickey Kaus (Slate), etc - the Left has been better than the Right at identifying those blogging stars, and putting them on a salary to use those talents full-time.

Today, I see one of the top bloggers on my short list has been hired to do just that at The Atlantic, which has been smart enough to hire a lot of good talent.

Good for her, good for them.

Hey, at least the Red Star (Minneapolis Star/Tribune) had the sense to keep Lileks at their "buzz.mn" company blog. About the only decision they’ve made in the past 30 years that made any sense whatsoever.
