This morning I have written four blog posts, on four different blogs. Well, with this one, make that FIVE.
Why do I do it?
Because blogging continues to be an incredibly effective tool for outreach, community development, sharing my thoughts, personal therapy, and even SEO. It helps me stay connected, and it makes me think critically about my ideas.
Here’s what I’ve written just this morning:
Another Way to See Full Names on LinkedIn: Recommendations. On my LinkedIn blog. Had to schedule this for tomorrow since a prescheduled post went up this morning.
Finding Dignity, Finding Hope. Identifying Your Identity. On my JibberJobber blog. Perhaps the most important post I’ve written this month, maybe this year, about how job seekers tend to lose their identity, and how that is not good (and what to do/think about it).
What is the scariest thing about starting (or thinking about starting) a business? On my 51 Alternatives blog (this is for my newest book). This was a soft-pitch post, easy to write. Basically I let those blog readers know about my LinkedIn question, which is totally relevant for this audience.
How has social marketing evolved? Please share your thoughts… On the Recruiting Blogs community. I posted this on a Group Discussion on LinkedIn, but thought that community would be a great place to have a conversation about it.
And now this post, which is a good teaching post about blogging (how, when, how often, why, what to write, etc.).
Are YOU blogging effectively? Do you know WHY you are blogging?
