There’s something ironic about the fact that, whenever I am working on a book, I have trouble thinking of ideas of things to write about on my blog! You’d think, when I am focused on writing so much, it would be obvious what to write on the blog, but it’s the opposite for me. I’m so conscious about NOT sharing exactly the same stuff as I am writing. (Who’d want to buy something if they can get it for free?) Yet, my mind is all wrapped up in the book, and inspiration for the blog wanes. (Stay tuned for more about the book and a request for your input later this week.)
I also sometimes feel like I’ve written everything there is to say about job search in the almost four (!) years I’ve been blogging. Add guest posts and other things I write for various outlets, and I think it wouldn’t be too surprising to know I’m at a loss for ideas. In fact, my colleague @WalterAkana recently tweeted:
It’s really striking that we get pretty much the same five tips, offered in countless posts, on how to stand out on LinkedIn! #justsayin
I don’t want to be passing around the “same old” ideas…
That’s where you come in! I have found, with a little inspiration, I am easily motivated to write and respond to inquiries. Even when I thought there was NOTHING ELSE to say about social media for job hunting, a colleague would prompt me with a few questions and I’d be motivated to share ideas I had not already written and written and written about already.
Can you help? Send me (either via the comments or use my contact form) your questions relating to job hunting, social media — anything in those niches you’d like to know about. I will blog the answers to your questions, or at the very least provide some suggested resources to help you.
Thanks! I look forward to your responses!
