Blogging As A Means Of Promoting Your Skills

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 3.83 (3 Votes)

We are 13 years into the 2st century and we do not have flying cars. No, we do not have teleportation machines, and we have not found alien life-forms on other plants. In fact, we have actually stripped one of the plants of their planet status which was rather disconcerting.

In my opinion, many individuals enjoyed having Pluto as the small, gray plant at the end of the acronyms - a way of remembering the names for Geography class. Sadly, that won't work anymore. However, disregarding all the things we don't have, we do have the Internet.

The Internet has changed our lives, both personal and professional, and living in the technological era we have had to adapt. Yes, there are those professions which remain purely 'on-site' but there are many which have moved online and require the new professionals to acknowledge and begin their careers as such. It is with this premise in mind, that I choose to discuss promoting skills online and the easiest way to complete this task is via blogging.

Originally, many individuals saw blogging as a form of self-expression and an alternative to journals. Initially it was a method of stating your opinion on various topics from the 'iffy' taste of your banana smoothie to the issue of homosexuality being viewed as a immoral sin. Now, blogs are being used as promotional tools whereby individuals will present their abilities to future employers which may happen to peruse their web-space.

As an example, I will use the blogs of aspiring journalists. Two decades ago, in the 1990s, a journalist would be required to gain experience at local newspapers or underground publications in order to 'polish' their CV.

They would be expected to make contacts and meet individuals whom they feel would be beneficial to their career by leaving the solitude of their bedroom and 'getting their hands dirty'.

To obtain an internship or entry level position - highly unlikely without the unpaid internship for 5 years - the aspiring writer would have to post their CV to different companies in the hope one of them will respond positively.

Nowadays, not only is the individual able to send their CV via email and save on stamps, but they are also able to demonstrate their abilities on a blog with the hope the employer will see this. This increases their chance as they no longer rely on a CV alone. The blog's theme, design and content allows the employer to gain a sense of the individual and make an informed decision.

One of the more popular platforms for journalists is Wordpress as more industries choose this platform as a base for their website. By doing this they already have a secondary connection with the potential employer. Furthermore, Wordpress allows for more structured and professional themes making the site less child-like.

As may be seen, a personal blog can be used for more than musings on 'random stuff'. If structured properly and carefully maintained it can assist in displaying important occupational skills.

I write a comment each time I appreciate a article
on a site or I have something to add to the conversation.
It is triggered by the fire displayed in the article I read.
And on this post Blogging As A Means Of Promoting Your Skills.
I was actually excited enough to post a comment ;) I actually do have a couple of
questions for you if it's allright. Could it be just me or
does it look as if like a few of these comments come across as if they are left
by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at additional online social sites, I'd like to
keep up with you. Could you list every one of all your public
sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?

I'm curious to find out what blog system you're using?
I'm experiencing some small security issues with my latest blog and I'd like to
find something more safe. Do you have any recommendations?

You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this
matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I am looking forward for
your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

4 Tips For Raising Your Search Engine Rankings

Search engine rankings are an important factor to consider when you have a web site that needs more traffic. If your web site doesn't have a good position in the rankings then it will be hard to find.

Since most searchers click on the first few results, you need to make sure that your web site is ranked highly enough so that people can easily find it on the first page of search engine results. Although no search engine optimization company can guarantee a high rankings for your site permanently, often times hiring a web marketing company will pay off many times over. For those of you doing it yourself or those of you that want to ensure your marketing company is doing a good job, here are some tips for raising the search engine rankings of your web site.

Single Cup Coffee Makers

Single Cup Coffee Makers
 
People love coffee and buy tons of coffee makers each year.  The problem with your average coffee maker is that it is usually designed to make ten to twelve cups of coffee per pot.  This is fine for the office or maybe a diner but a casual coffee drinker doesn't need all that.  With an average coffee maker, if you only drink one or two cups a day, you are wasting between eight and ten cups.  That's a lot of coffee!  Another thing is if you buy a big can of coffee, it will most likely get stale after a while.  These are all good reasons you might want a single cup coffee maker.
