A couple of years ago I explained what it was I did for a living to someone at a social club I belonged to. "Why?" she asked, "Where will blogging take you?" At the time I couldn’t answer that. Blogging was blogging. It could take me to new levels of blogging. Perhaps I’d earn six figures, who knows?
Today I can answer in a more knowledgeable fashion. I just accepted a full time position as blogger and Community Manager for Blog Talk Radio. The job involves two of the things i love best, blogging and social networking. Sure there’s more to it, but if there was ever a dream job, this is it.
A couple of weeks ago, David Peralty, the Community Manager for PicApp spoke here about using his service on blogs. He too used his blogging skills to catapult him to a full time Community Manager position.
I’ve been saying for some time now as blogging reaches the main stream more full time, salaried gigs are going to open up. Corporations will want bloggers and social networking gurus on staff to help spread the word about their products and services. David and I are both proof of that.
When your networks offer training sessions, and when the probloggers offer tips and advice, pay attention. Take it all in. Because you never know where blogging can take you.
