Somewhere along my 11 years of blogging, I started sharing the most-read blog posts part way through the year and at year-end. So now that we’ve already hit mid-year (how is that possible?), here are a half-dozen of them so far in 2018.
I’m often inspired to blog about what’s going on around me:
- My blogging anniversary in January prompted me to Google if blogging is dead. The question comes up every year, and my post reveals that Blogging is still alive and well in 2018.
- Your mission: Make the logo boring (Nailed it) was inspired by my own reaction to Ontario’s new name and logo for, let’s face it, what everyone’s going to call The Weed Store anyway.
Words are my business, so my blog posts often cover words and how to use them:
- Your LinkedIn competitors are just as passionate talks about the words (like experienced and passionate) that are used so often in LinkedIn profiles they have become buzzwords, and gives alternates.
- Word nerds like me look forward to the release each year of the previous year’s new or newly prominent words. You’ll find some of these (like complicit and fake news) in Words of the year are no “fake news.”
My posts often summarize interesting events, such as:
- Gini Dietrich has a challenge for indie communicators, which recaps a webinar in which Gini encourages IABC/Toronto Professional Independent Communicators to diversify our businesses. Bonus: Five recommended books to read.
- Podcasting: What communicators need to know in 2018, which shares the highlights of a session where my friend and podcasting super fan Donna Papacosta told PIC members and friends what podcasts are, why they are useful and how to start.
As always, thanks for taking the time to read, and sometimes comment! Enjoy your summer.
