We have a tradition at USV that one of our new analysts, Dani, coined Proof Of Blog.

I like that term so much. It really speaks to why we have this tradition.
When someone new joins USV, we ask them to introduce themselves to our world on the USV blog.
Here are some recent “proof of blog” posts:
Even partners at USV do this. Here is Rebecca’s post announcing her arrival at USV last fall.
And Lauren, who has been at USV for almost four years now, but is in a relatively new role, introduced a new wrinkle to this tradition blogging about her new responsibilities.
It is easy to think of a venture firm as a collection of partners; me, Brad, Albert, John, Andy, Rebecca, because we are the most visible people in our firm to the outside world.
Proof of blog is a bit about changing that perception so people know the larger team. And it is also about the broader team making sure folks know a bit about them and what interests them so entrepreneurs can leverage relationships with them too.
If you don’t follow the USV blog, but want to, you can do that on the USV Twitter handle.
