Why should you blog? Because you’ll make connections. By giving to other bloggers, you’ll receive in return.
A while ago, I stumbled on a blog called Brazen Careerist. It had some interest career-related content, so I subscribed. I linked to it a couple times, commented a time or two, and emailed the author, Penelope Trunk.
Now, I’m receiving a free bound galley of her new book, Brazen Careerist, featured at right. This is the first time anyone has offered something like this to me. I’m definitely excited and honored. It’s probably a small thing in the publishing world, but it’s a huge thing to this blogger.
The cool thing is that I would’ve never had this opportunity without blogging. I would’ve never interacted with this interesting author and columnist. I think the book will provide some great inspiration for posts here and at Job Tuition.
You’re probably wondering if there’s a moral to this story. In short, give to others. Blogging provides lots of ways to do that.
