Free career advice with a little attitude

By Matthew Moran ·
I reply to threads occassionally and have corresponded with some of you directly. Just wanted to post several of my latest blog topics. My career blog for IT pros has gained popularity steadily over the past several months...

Also, Cisco Press, my publisher, and TechRepublic have worked out a deal and a sample chapter of my book is here in the TechRepublic downloads section...

Notes From The Toolshed

The latest topics:
* Got Traits? What does it take to be a consultant?
* Only read this if you are a technology pro who wants to succeed!
* 12 Weeks To Profitable Consulting
* Average Pay and Job Dissatisfaction
* Overzealous Professional Development: Over My Dead Body

You'll be able to post your blog here very soon

We are currently finishing up our own blogging system for TechRepublic.

Part of our functionality will allow you to plug in your RSS feed from your existing blog and have that content pulled into your TR blog. Plus, you can add new posts with the TR blogging tools that get intermingled with your existing posts.

Look for an announcement on the site early next week.

Also, are there plans to have reply notifications sent on TR discussions? It would be very helpful as I often do not go visit the site for several days at a time.

Clicking the "subscribe" link under any discussion post will send you e-mail notifications on new posts.

We are planning to add that option to the Start a thread page so that you can set that preference when you post.

Good, now we can do some surfing easily. I read your blogs as regularly as I can and when they come, and they are rewarding. Thanks for the tips and links you sent over 2 months ago. Kixstart wasn't so hrad to learn after all, and it has greatly improved network admin tasks down here. Bravo Matt.
