I’ll start off by saying that our interview with Deb Ng of FreelanceWritingGigs.com has to be one of the most enjoyable interviews I’ve ever been a part of. David and I both grilled Deb Ng on the topics of freelancing, getting a job in the world of blogging, using your blog as a resume, managing time and much more. During the show, David, Deb and myself shared our unique paths to our current blogging careers. Thanks Deb for being on the show and providing a wealth of information. David and I both want to thank each and every one of you who was in the chat room and who continue to listen and support the show. We truly appreciate it. On with the show!

Each week, David and I like to look at the jobs available in blogging and related industries. We cover jobs that catch our eye, and hopefully don’t pay too poorly. We will feature one of these jobs on each episode of Perfcast. This week, we gave the honors of the job of the week to Deb who did a great job.

Damn, you were about a half hour too late and we couldn’t mention the entry on the show. However, thank you for participating and trying to get past the challenge. Take the next one on a little bit earlier heh.
I took you up on the Blogging Challenge this week. There are several ways to get to ten comments. I opted to go the non-confrontational route and instead hit up my regulars in a roll call of sorts, while maintaining the usual snark.
This is appealing to regulars for two reasons. First, any of them who are bloggers will love the link juice and might be keen to respond. The other reason is that because they are regulars, the chances of them commenting rise.
At the time of me writing this comment, only five have responded. I expect five of the remaining will respond. If not, I’d appreciate you mentioning this if you don’t have any better prospects for the show. Thanks.
I really enjoyed hearing Deb Ng on your show. Lot’s of great info for bloggers from Deb, David, and of course Jeff.
Wanted to point out when Deb promo-ed her show on Blog Talk Radio, she left out the “dash” in the url:
Hey… there’s one of us in every group, huh?
Thanks so much for having me on. This is the most fun I had doing one of these!
