Pingback: Special Thanks To Heidi Caswell for Sharing How She Started Blogging
I started blogging because I wrote a book on baby boomer women and was told by publishing professionals that, in order to attract an agent and a publisher, I needed to have a national platform. WHAT?!
But one of my friends came to the rescue and suggested I start a blog. Although reluctant to do so, I began. Funny thing, I started LOVING it! My book remains unpublished but my blog, Feisty Side of Fifty, has gained in popularity and I’ve started a radio show of the same name.
Now, I’ve published a book on a topic I know really well–job search tips and techniques for jobseekers in midlife–all because I ventured into the world of blogging. I highly recommend it!
We share something in common blogging and helping job seekers. In fact I started blog with that in mind about 5 years ago then found the world of blogging fascinating. I too was prodded by a friend (Blogging Betty Boomer) to start blogging. She bugged me until I gave in.
I am so glad I did. I have learned how to build web and membership sites as a result. One of these sites is: http://reinventyounow.com/ where I discuss career well being.
Please feel free to drop by and make a comment.
Isn’t it awesome how blogging takes you into directions you did not ever think you would go?
Now, there is no stopping you!!!!
I stumble across your boomer blog and really love reading some interesting reply from people.
I guess boomers like us always have to find ways to keep improving our social lifetyles..and blogging is a cool thing to start.
