This is newsletter number 844.

“The will to win is worthless if you do not have the will to prepare.”

– Thane Yost

Welcome to the JOTW network. Today’s JOTW newsletter comes to you once again from our Global Operations center, where the JOTW staff is being paid holiday overtime pay to bring you this issue of the JOTW newsletter.

This is the often-talked-about, sometimes copied, but totally unique weekly, still publishing after all these years, award-winning JOTW networking newsletter for professional communicators…like you, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”

This is a cooperative service, which means it requires everyone’s cooperation, and since you are part of everyone, yes, you, I’m looking at you, don’t look down at your shoes. Everybody has to share. How does it work? If you find out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me (lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network. It's that simple. And we share dozens of opportunities each week. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

You are among 11,284 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This network is all about connecting communicators and sharing opportunities. And speaking of sharing, since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 29,891 to be exact, as of today.

I can’t change your e-mail address for you. But you can. Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

[found on twitter]

Need Article Writer

…looking for someone to write reviews for me. All of the reviews will be for health products, this includes weight loss and also sexual health (though nothing explicit)…. You will not actually have the products to review, so the appropriate websites should be fully digested so you are only writing relevant content… Each review must be written as if you had tried the product and whilst generally positive should also sound realistic.

Each article must be unique and pass copyscape.

[This is wonderful. Write phony reviews about things you don't get to review but only get to read the websites containing other reviews about the damn things.

And what is “copyscape”? What your writing looks like when viewed from the edge of the page?

Sigh

However, there is one cause for celebration, he did use “whilst” properly (I think). ]
