Have ideas and thoughts about IA or UX that you want to write about but you:
A. Don’t want to set up a blog
B. Don’t have time to keep a blog
C. Just have one or a few ideas that are ready to “write about”. Not enough for your own blog.
D. Just want to test the waters and see if you can do it, or
E. Want to publish it to a new audience?
Well then… perhaps we can come to an arrangement. I personally love writing for my blog. It keeps me sane because it allows me to voice my ideas and opinions, while hearing your thoughts about those ideas and opinions. It takes me away from the day to day and launches me into conversations that I may never have had.
Unfortunately, for the next month or two, I’ll be too booked up to write as much as I’d like. (no worries though, I’ll be jotting ideas to pen once I return). And, although interns Chris and Kofi have been doing a great job contributing content, I thought I would give others the chance to contribute as well.
So I’m looking for guest bloggers for the Keeping It Real About UX blog. Here are the requirements I’m looking for:
You have an idea or opinion about IA or UX that you are passionate about (could be anything).
You are in the field or you interact with/think about the field.
You are a newbie, an expert or somewhere inbetween.
You have the ability to keep it real :-).
Interested? Drop me an email and let’s get to it!
When I started this blog back in 2007 it was purely for selfish reasons. I was looking to move to NYC and needed a job. So, I used this site to define my online presence and showcase my past work for potential employers. But, as I began to write, something strange happened… I began to love doing so! And thus, the blog was reborn.
Today, over 4 years later, I have redefined this site as a place where I look to share my experiences in user experience with whomever will listen. Only one thing is missing… a blog name! Back when I first put my blog together it was a representation of my online self. As such, the site name of Elisabeth Hubert made sense. But now, as I look to complete the re-definition once and for all, I’m hoping to come up with a name that is a better fit. Being the UX person that I am, I thought there was no better place to turn to for input than to the blog users… meaning you.
Below are some ideas that I’ve been thinking about. If you like any of them (seriously, it’s ok if you don’t), then please vote for the one you like best. If you don’t like any of them I’d love to hear other ideas in the Other field or in the post comments. I can’t wait to hear what you all think and want to thank you so much in advance for participating!
