Re: Your thoughts?
LinkedIn sent me an offer to blog on its platform a few months back. I wanted to submit something close to what I had published elsewhere and asked the publisher for permission. I never heard back from her, so I didn't submit.

Re: Your thoughts?
People have been having a lot of trouble to actually apply for the Linkedin blogging feature, as it still is on an application only basis. I included information about how to apply with a link in my blog: http://www.designandpromote.com/linkedin-blog-linkedins-new-blogging-feature/

Re: LinkedIn blogs
It represents the number of people who have clicked the link to your blog post (not those who have seen the link in their feeds).

Re: LinkedIn blogs
Hi, I was wondering if the number of views a LinkedIn blog post gets is based on actual clicks to the link? Or scrolling through your news feed and seeing a the blog link count as a view as well? Thanks!

Re: LinkedIn blogs
I got access to its blogging platform last week and have been playing around with it. As far as I can tell, the only analytics it gives you is the number of people who have viewed and liked your post (and it appears those stats are public, so anyone can see them).

LinkedIn Blogging
For LinkedIn users with an interest in blogging, this could be a great resource to gain experience and exposure. At the end of the day, it gives another platform on which you can share your work! For other thoughts about the effectiveness of blogging in catching an audience, take a look at this post: http://blog.prosemedia.com/espresso-yourself-three-reasons-a-good-blog-post-is-like-a-good-cup-of-joe/

Re: LinkedIn blogs
Ha, I have to agree with you there. I'm not sure that's where they're headed (or would want to head).

Re: LinkedIn blogs
Interesting question about whether LinkedIn will merge w/ a media company some day. I'd be surprised. I believe LinkedIn already sees its self as a new age media company: It has the executive audience, it's pulling in all kinds of content already -- and now creating more; and it has an interesting advantage in seeing the metrics behind the scenes to offer advertisers.  But I think they still have a ways to go to get the level of reader engagement good media companies offer through content thoughtfull created for readers rather than counting on them to generate their own content.

Re: LinkedIn blogs
Exactly. LinkedIn wants to be more than a site you visit when you're looking for new jobs, and it's doing a decent job of trying to be that. Pulse, Influencers, Company pages, etc -- all those were launched to keep people onsite longer. Like you said, I think those who already actively market themselves on LinkedIn will be more apt to pursue this feature than the average user.
