Use your byline on all blog posts

I’m going to add a new requirement for your blog posts: that you each use a byline at the top. All you need to do is write a line of text (you can put it in bold or italics or not) at the top of each post, then skip a line and start the blog copy.

The reason why: because in a blog, you never know which post readers are going to stumble upon. Two years from now, your blog post on a Boston reporter may turn up in my search for information about that person. I’ll show you what “permalinks” are, and each blog post will then have its own URL and byline. That will also be good for your future job searches.

You should each still have a little information about you on the About page.
