Lately, I’ve been getting into a lot of discussions about blogging with my friends and co-workers. They’re always fascinated to learn about the new medium but most will say, “I just don’t have the time.”
The thing is… in today’s culture, I don’t think a person can afford to not blog. It has to be a priority to have a personal marketing strategy. Blogging is an effective way of marketing yourself and your ideas.
The World Wide Web is truly amazing. It allows for a global ongoing archived conversation. Any one can have a voice and develop a presence in the different communities and conversations that exist.
The thing is your voice has to have a presence.
Things will work better for you if you’re out in your community discussing the issues that are important. I don’t want to have a hermit as a business partner or as an employee.
Blogging isn’t about being overly verbose and whining a lot. It’s about learning to market yourself and your ideas within the global conversation. It’s having a presence.
