What is a Blog?
Or really, why blog? We used to write in diaries or journals, now we blog. The only difference? The blog is public.
And THAT is a big difference. Anyone looking for a job or thinking they might switch jobs in the future need to be very aware of the image they put out on their blogs.
The blog can be great for demonstrating your writing ability. But it can also be detrimental if you use it to rant.
If you blog, remember these three key things:
1. Keep it professional.
2. Keep it short and relevant.
3. Never make it personal.
