Why Blogging is Good For Your Career

Tim Bray on why Blogging is good for your career. Here are a couple of the reasons he cites (there are five more on his site).

  1. You have to get noticed to get promoted.
  2. You have to get noticed to get hired.
  3. It really impresses people when you say “Oh, I’ve written about that, just Google for XXX and I’m on the top page” or “Oh, just Google my name.”
  4. No matter how great you are, your career depends on communicating. The way to get better at anything, including communication, is by practicing. Blogging is good practice.
  5. Bloggers are better-informed than non-bloggers. Knowing more is a career advantage…

To which I would add…

  1. It’s a terrific way to converse with people and ignite conversations you’d never have had
  2. You’ll improve your thinking in both depth and range
  3. You’ll quickly discover what you don’t know
  4. It’s actually fun
  5. There’s no more efficient way (yet) to communicate with your network, friends and family
