A blog entry on the importance of blogging…

I just read this article from Social Fresh written by Michael White of Musings of a PR Student and thought I’d share with you.  It is called The 8 Reasons Why Students Should Blog (but really applies to anyone – not just students). White makes some very valid points, most of which are reasons why I started a blog myself.  The biggest reasons for me were #1, 3, 5, and 6 – portfolio, networking, expanding knowledge-base, and reputation. (#8 would be nice of course, but like White said: “In my opinion earning money is never a goal, only a side effect from doing something you enjoy.”)
