Dawn Burke Dishes Out The Rules of HR Blogging (If There Are Any)

People ask me a lot what it takes to be a blogger (fancy people say writer).  They want to know what the rules are to write great posts.  I have a four word answer:

Be authentic and consistent. Other than that, there aren’t any rules. 

  • Write what you want.
  • If you mispell a word — unless it is a post about spelling, who gives a crap
  • If you can paint a picture telling a story from your life, childhood, therapy session or conversation with the customer service rep at Publix – go for it.
  • If you hate mushy therapy talk and are more data driven — write a 700 word post with algorithms only.  If that is your jam, go for it.

Read the rest over at Dawn Burke’s blog (an FOT contributor blog).

Dawn Burke
Dawn Burke is an HR Leader, speaker and writer, specializing in new HR practices, engagement and workplace culture.  Her HR career has spanned the last 20 years, most recently serving as VP of People for Birmingham, Alabama's award-winning technology company, Daxko. That’s right – the very DAXKO that our very own KD is an alum of, because there are only so many people in the big B’ham who are worthy of a VP of People title. A true Generalist, she’s done a little bit of everything, but recruiting and training is where she gets her mojo. She’s based in the good ol' blogging capitol of the south, Birmingham, Alabama, where you can frequently find her listening to the Beatles and REM, watching Breaking Bad reruns (and Snapped and Dateline), enjoying serious amounts of coffee (and cheese, but not together!), dreaming of where she will travel next, and wondering how in the world this theatre grad ever got into football or HR…Check out her blog at dawnhburke.com or talk to Dawn via emailLinkedIn, Instagram or Twitter
