Blogging is good for your career, says The Boston Globe, because a well-executed blog sets you apart as an expert in your field.
Blogging gives you a way to control what employers — who regularly Google potential hires — see, because Google’s system works in such a way that blogs that are heavily networked with others come up high in Google searches. The advantages of blogging include:

  • Blogging creates a network.
  • Maintaining an active blog helps you really get to know your topic well; great training for a job.
  • Blogging could be your big break.
  • And my favorite:

  • Blogging makes the world a better place.
  • That’s because networked bloggers are adding to the information pool instead of always just taking information provided by others.
