I meant to blog today about either my visit to Jane Austen's house or about the death of my college mentor, two big events from last week. But I left my supporting visuals at home. So real quick, here are two new blogs I wanted to mention to you. We'll talk about the other items later this week.
First, I was happy to see that freelance permissions editor Julie Cancio Harper, whom I profiled a while back, has started her own blog. A lot of it is about food (nothing wrong with that). But it also gives you an idea of what her life is like working at home. So be sure to check out Learning to Eat. She's an exquisite writer.
Also, today I discovered that my friend Stevie Puckett, a career counselor in Georgia, has started her own blog. Visit StevieSue.com and find out how to be a Careerillionaire. And thanks, Stevie, for the plug for this blog! Look what she said about it:
I love the way she has built the blog around the central theme of an informational interview for those interested in the industry. This instantly sets her up as an expert. It also leads to numerous ideas for topics to write about as she discusses her own career journey and daily activities. She also interviews others in the industry which greatly furthers her professional networking activities and exposure. Brilliant!
I'm blushing. But she's right: I never anticipated what amazing networking opportunities this blog would create. If you're on the fence about starting one of your own, keep that aspect in mind. It's priceless.
