Every so often there are electric storms on the sun which create a kind of wind deep in the bowels of Red China. This special air leads to an eruption of the chi energy and before you know it out pops our man in Shanghai, Frankie Mulligan.
That’s right, Frankie’s back. Last week, I saw blog guru, Kevin Wheeler declare Frankie’s blog one of the top seven in the Recruitosphere.
And, now, Frankie has arrived at my door once more, begging bowl in hand. I want to be on your blogroll he beseeches me. Okay, I say, but I kinda thought you would have put me on your blogroll first. You know, just to get things rolling.
Oh, Animal, he says, I woulda, really. But until just a few days ago, I didn’t know you still existed. We got this big censorship thing goin’ here, see, and I’m really out of touch.
Yeah, I see, Frankie, I said. But the note you emailed me this morning was sent over top of the invitation I sent you last year when I started my new blog. Yes, friends, Frankie tried to ruse me as any good recruiter would. And that schtick about politics interfering with blogging was pretty good. But when you put on a nice suit, it helps to make sure that you zip up your fly.
More About Frankie
Last year, Frankie was part of a panel promoting blogs in Shanghai. Here’s the promo. Sound familiar?
Bloggers and internet pundits are exerting a “disproportionately large influence” on society… they are increasingly dominating public conversations and creating business trends… Are you ignoring a trend that can very quickly make you look like a very old-fashioned company?…
Frank Mulligan is the CEO of Talent Software…. Frank’s blog has been up and running as a ‘real blog’ for about 6 months. Previously he posted, for about 3 years, on a daily basis using a simple business article model.
He is currently syndicated on HRMS, Net Assets and Onrec, and a nominee for Best of Blogs in 2005.
A nominee for Best of Blogs in 2005. I’m 99.9 % sure that was the Recruiting.com awards in which contestants were allowed to nominate themselves. That’s alright, Frankie, you’re not the only one who uses that contest like a degree from a matchbook university.
