I’m very much aware of the error message that has suddenly started appearing in the Comments section of posts.

Sadly, being aware of it doesn’t mean I know how to cure it. Everything I have tried so far has failed.

I am still working on the problems, but if any reader knows what I need to do to get rid of it, I would be very grateful for advice!

Slow Leadership will be joining in the first Blog Action Day on October 15th.

Our mission here at Slow Leadership isn’t just about slowing down and creating a better work/life balance: it’s all about creating a more civilized world, at work and outside. That’s why we’ve decided to put our weight behind this initiative and help get everyone talking about a serious issue for a change.

The event is open to blogs of every variety and size. If you’d like to find out who is involved, who is behind the initiative and read through their list of FAQs, click here.

Better still, find out about getting your blog involved. Here’s how the organizers describe the event:

On October 15th, bloggers around the web will unite to put a single important issue on everyone’s mind - the environment. Every blogger will post about the environment in their own way and relating to their own topic. Our aim is to get everyone talking towards a better future.

Why not join us?

The response to my search for guest bloggers has been nearly all I could have wished for and next week will see the start of a short period of “trial” posts by each of those selected.

I am inviting you, our generous and loyal readership, to take part in this experiment by letting me know how you respond to each of the guests. To make this easy, I plan to set up a simple rating system against each article.

Look for the first article to appear next Monday, with others at 2-3 day intervals.

My only disappointment has been that no women offered to be guest bloggers.

I know there are many women who read Slow Leadership. The comments show that. So are none of you interested in taking part as a guest blogger? I am very much in favor of diversity, in thought as in person, and I do think it would be a distinct advantage to have a female voice amongst our authors.

It’s not too late, if you’re interested to submit an application. Just send an e-mail to [email protected].

Slow Leadership is looking for one or two regular guest authors

Until now, I have written every posting on this blog—more than 450 articles to date. I’ve enjoyed doing it, but there comes a time when a single viewpoint starts to become a limitation on developing further. Since I am now retired, I am also conscious that my day-to-day knowledge of what is happening in the world of work will become more out-of-date with every passing month.

I’ve therefore decided to look for one or two guest authors to take up regular slots on this blog: people who are totally in tune with the objectives and outlook that have been my guiding principles, but who can bring fresh thinking and perspectives as well.

I’ve been a guest blogger myself for almost two years and I’ve found it to be an excellent way to encourage new readers to try my own blog. It’s also helped me to establish a wider reputation in the blogging community.

About the blog

Slow Leadership is one of the leading workplace-related blogs, with a large and dedicated audience throughout the world. In the two years since it was started, it has built up a reputation for innovative, thoughtful, objective, and creative posts. Guest-posting here will expose your writing to an important, rapidly-growing audience of intelligent, thinking people.

Its purpose is to help people find ways to work that promote a civilized atmosphere in their workplace, based on giving everyone there due respect as individuals with needs and aspirations beyond the purely working aspects of their lives. In particular, the blog focuses on finding ways to promote a pace and style of work that is consistent with time spent at work being happy and satisfying, not just a financial necessity.

Basic requirements

I’m looking for experienced bloggers with excellent writing skills: people who can make an article grab the reader’s attention and hold their interest.

You must be able to write literate, grammatical, correctly-spelled and punctuated English, and be able to demonstrate a high level of expertise relevant to whatever topic you want to write about. You must also be willing to contribute on a regular basis: anywhere between once a month and once a week.

Where you live and work is unimportant. I am English and live in the USA. The blog has large readerships in both of those countries, but also important, much-valued readerships in Australia and New Zealand, Canada, France, Germany, Denmark, Sweden, the Baltic States, and India—to name but the largest groups. If I have any preference, it is for people with a very different background from my own and each other. Diversity is, in my view, an enormous strength. A few more female bloggers in this topic area of leadership and the workplace would be interesting.

Next steps

If you would like to find out more, and perhaps submit one or two trial postings, please send an e-mail to [email protected]. I’d like to see some specimens of your articles, so please include a URL where I can find them.

The final choice will depend as much on reader reaction as my own. The key to a successful blog is to maintain a consistently high standard of content that people will trust and wish to read on a regular basis. In the end, it’s the readers who must deliver their verdict by the way they respond to some trial articles from the shortlisted candidates.
