DemWork is just what I suspected upon seeing the title of it. It’s a place where the author will be, as I read in the about section of the site, “posting all of the jobs from the Senate and House job lists, typically with the name of the office. Plus, Iâ€™ll have a number of other jobs that I come across as a Hill staffer.”
It’s hard to call a site like this a blog. However, since Wikipedia says the definition of a blog is a “website where entries are written in chronological order and displayed in reverse chronological order”, DemWork definitely qualifies.
DemWork is a very well laid out and easy to navigate site. The simple white background and black text thrown together in a three-column layout function perfectly together for this site. The author has made it a point to make it easy for readers to add the site to any possible RSS reader they might be using. There’s also a search box, which is pretty standard on a blog layout, but it would come in especially handy on this site if someone were looking for a specific job.
In late May of this year, the author decides to expand the site from just available job descriptions to the occasional article as well. There haven’t been any articles posted yet, but it is a nice addition to the site. It’s a great supplement for the target audience for this site.
This site does not pertain to me one single bit. While I love politics and follow them closely, I have no desire to work in the field. Despite that, I found this site to be a great addition to the blog world. As an outsider, I thought the descriptions and qualifications listed under the jobs was quite captivating. I’m not even sure why, but it was!
Yes, this blog is geared towards a specific audience and that audience does not include the majority of blog readers. However, people that will find this site useful will be very pleased with this relatively new site.NULL
