We have two new staff members here at Blogmutt, and I wanted to take a moment to introduce them.
First is Katie, who’s official title is Head of Awesomeness. She’s in charge of customer engagement, PR, marketing, and bringing the education level of Blogmutt up a notch as she’s the only staffer with a graduate degree. (In “rhetoric” no less!)
If you are a new customer and you asked a question, chances are it’s Katie that’s interacted with you, and she does it with a smile. She’s just fantastic.
Next is Max, who joins Wade as a developer working on Blogmutt. He’s been on the job for a month now and already we’ve seen a huge uptick in the rate at which our to-do list is getting done.
You can read more about them on the Blogmutt about page. (Max made that page very quickly, and that, too, is now done.)
That’s the whole point of Blogmutt: getting something done that’s hard. Writing is hard, and most businesses just don’t have the time for it. We have an amazing crew of writers who can get that done for you, and done well. And, perhaps most importantly of all, they can get it done for you every single week, week in and week out. That’s what matters when it comes to blogging, so that’s what we do.
Does it have to be perfect? Nope.
Let’s see, what’s an analogy we could use that would show how it’s better for a job to be done than to obsess over it for way too long? How about a staff photo! We’ve all worked in offices where the staff photos get obsessed over and it becomes a huge drag on getting everything else done.
I’ve spent more time writing that paragraph about the photo than we spent taking the photo. We didn’t hire a professional photographer, or even ask someone else to take it. I just grabbed my phone, stuck my arm out and took the picture. Yes it makes my head look like a watermelon. When we get bigger maybe we’ll have someone else take the photo but for now it’s DONE!
That’s the Blogmutt way: No ego. Done.
