How blogging can help you in your career


Last week i wrote about John Sonmez last book. And here i am  again talking about his work.

Am i getting paid to do this? No.

So why are you doing it? Because he helps others! He helped me!
And just like him, i want to help you. I won’t ask you to buy his book, although i do recommend it.

What i’m here today for is to talk about his free email course on How to Create a Blog That Boosts Your Career.

He’ll send you a couple of emails every week with a set of goals in each one, which means you’ll have some “homework” to do. But don’t worry he won’t spam your inbox.

So he goes through everything, from actually creating your blog, choosing a theme, choosing the name of it, what you should write about… The list goes on.
Then he explains that things won’t become a reality in a couple of weeks. It takes time to build your name/brand/reputation.

And how exactly it happens? By helping others! You can help people on online forums, discussion boards, StackOverflow, Github, by writing good content, you choose!

So what are you waiting for? Go check his course and leave a comment below if you want to hear more about it.

    Good post!

    I’m also inspired by John Sonmez to blog.

  3. I absolutely agree with this. Having a blog site gave me a big advantage over other candidates when I applied for the job that I’m doing now. I don’t think I would ever have started if I wasn’t encouraged to do so, but there’s so many advantages in doing so, John Sonmez is right when he talks about the top 1%. That doesn’t necessarily mean we are technically in the top 1%, but it shows a passion for the industry that isn’t as apparent from those who don’t blog.
