I view blogs as public diaries, so they terrify me a bit. I have been thinking about creating one for a while now, but never knew what I would write about. I mean, what could I write about that no one else has already said? An old high school pal said I should start a blog about me taking care of my grandmother. But, I had already started a paper diary with that subject that my Mom had given me. I also keep a personal journal on my laptop, that I love writing in. I feel like SJP on "Sex in the City."
Last week I attended a PRSA YPN Job Workshop at Golin Harris, and met the speaker Susan Caplan, author of "Marketing Yourself To The Real World: 10 simple steps to gain a competitive edge in the job market." http://www.susancaplan.com/ She spoke about how important it is to market yourself on the Internet. I was already on Facebook and LinkedIn, but I still needed to get on Twitter, and why not a blog as well? So that's what has led me up to this point.
