1. Comment: Articles And Bloggings -For many years we carried blog

posts with titles of the format "Article: Bloggings On PERM Labor

Certification by Joel Stewart". The problem with this format of

titles was that it did not mention the specific content of the

article. To solve this problem, a few months ago we changed the

title of blog posts to the title of the first blog post in that

article, for example: "Article: PERM Opinions Vary Greatly! By

Joel Stewart". During the past three months many readers have

complained that this format of titles for blog posts makes it

impossible for them to distinguish between blog posts and other

articles. Many of the blog posts tend to be shorter than most

articles we carry and we understand the need to distinguish them.

From this issue onwards, we will be changing the first word of

the title of blog posts to "Bloggings:" for example: "Bloggings:

PERM Opinions Vary Greatly! By Joel Stewart" Please let us know

how this change of format works for you. As always, we are always

open to hear any comments you may have on any aspect of Immigration

Daily. Write to us at mailto:editor@ilw.com.
