How do I blog?
Here’s what a reader mailed me:
I want to know how you decide what to write about (sorry , sounds silly!) ahnd how do you draw the line on how much of yourself comes through the blog and how much of the professional ‘you’ comes through. I want to begin blogging too and while there is no dearth of topics in today’s world, I am very hesitant to start! Any advice?
This is what I replied:
Well there are three main ways I decide what to write about:
1. Thoughts that strike me during the day and if they are still there in the evening – I know it’s important for me to express it 🙂
2. What the other HR bloggers are blogging about – and if I have something new to add to it 🙂
3. Some newsworthy events in my domain area Well when one is expressing an opinion – of course there is one’s own thoughts, values getting expressed, and I don’t even try to hide it. My blog is not a news blog, so I don’t strive for objectiveness
If you have a point of view and a story to tell – just start blogging!
