What does this mean for bloggers seeking paid blogging jobs? Well, Problogger's new job board probably won't kill off anyone else's - after all, wouldn't you want to post about a blogging job opening at your own blog and other places as well as a place like Problogger? Nevertheless, I'm sure a lot of bloggers and companies will look to the Problogger board not only as an opportunity to connect, but also as a barometer of sorts for the blogging economy. The more jobs listed there, the merrier, right? (Well, assuming they're snatched up regularly.)
Weighing in: Brian Clark at Copyblogger sees the new Problogger job board as evidence that blogging as a phenomenon is maturing: "Blogging is a real 21st century job description." Like me, Brian recommends posting a listing to multiple online boards if possible.
Another thumbs-up: Aaron Brazell at The Blog Herald says Problogger's new board and others like it possess a likable "charm" and overcome the "lack of cohesiveness demonstrated by other blogs-turned-classifieds sites." I also like the idea of a board layout as opposed to a blog format for job listings because it's easier to scan and search through a large number of listings in a tabular way.
Game time: How many listings will be up at the Problogger board by October 1st? My guess is 42. What's yours?
If you don't want to spend any money to look for a pro blogger, Performancing Exchange is a great free place to post a blogger job listing.
Bonus link: The CrunchBoard by TechCrunch has lots of cool, geeky Web 2.0 job listings.
