Conversation Agent - Valeria Maltoni - 34 Reasons to Start a Blog

« Treating Women Differently | Main | Why Blog? Why Bother? Why Care? »



All very solid reasons to start a blog and thanks so much for the shout out. The mentor monday series was a lot of fun to do, and I may have to start updating it again soon!

My blog has helped me in so many ways. I can't stress enough how important it is for young professionals, especially in the media/communications industry, to consider starting a blog.

The writing/editing skills you learn are priceless.

The connections you make are that much stronger.

...and to touch on your point about complementing your resume, I got my job directly because of my blog. They didn't even read my resume. If it weren't for this job, I wouldn't have gone to Philly, and I wouldn't have met an awesome mentor named Valeria.

...good thing I started a blog ^_^

@Grace - glad to be helpful to you.

@Melody - you are one of two deciding factors for me to get my coffee at Starbucks when I'm on the road, so you do the brand justice by way of your passion. And you are saying something important here, the fact that some of us, maybe many, feel the need to share what we think and feel.

@Abby - here's to your personal blog, then. It doesn't make sense for everyone, of course, it is a habit that has injected a lot of discipline in my writing.

Love this list! I haven't started a blog of my own yet but I regularly post on two industry blogs and also guest post as often as I can. I love this list... because there are just so many reasons to blog!

My favorite here is #20. "tell your story -- a blog can be a great repository for the stories you share here and there. In fact, that's how blogs got their start, as live journals."

Everyone has a story and I really think we can all learn from one another!
