I like to post comments on these social media! Also, for Lent, I gave up dieting.
What I've noticed with the bloggers in my social network is that many of them are being recruited from the blogosphere by companies who hear the message. It's really the ultimate resume because it gives you a very detailed look into someone's background and thoughts. There are also plenty of opportunities that you run into because of the doorways that being a blogger can unlock.There is always the chance that you could make some angry rant, flame the internet, and ruin your reputation forever, but it's a small risk for the opportunities that are knocking.
I agree with your comments about hiring people who blog, however, there is fear out there about doing so. Some companies are googleing(sp?) potential hires and avoiding those who blog.
saw chris anderson today at TAG event - he was good. the event, well, not so good. hard to compare with socon except for the fact we didn't have chris at socon. :)
isn't the average blog viewed by zero people--its a quite a feat to have a blog w/ a few regular readers/commenters much less one that has any real impact outside a very very very small circle, no???
