Know Your Blog If you haven’t already, take inventory of your own blog. What is your niche and demographic? What types of strategies have you used to get your blog noticed? How do you plan and organize your content? Keeping a record of your own successes as a blogger will help you identify what you can bring to a company’s strategy and how to craft your resume. Similarly, noting the areas where you can grow will show you where to focus as you’re improving your blogging skills. 2. Get Noticed As you know, blogging isn’t just about writing, it’s also about getting others to read your writing. Standing out in the blogosphere takes effort—but it’s a key skill employers will be looking for. So focus on getting your personal blog out there: Network with other bloggers, participate in social networks, and attend industry or blogger events. Even if your blog is in the handmade goat cheese mini-niche, if you’re getting noticed, you’re doing something right, and that’s a great story to tell in a job interview. 3. Write In addition to writing (regularly) for your own blog, establish outside credibility by contributing to other blogs and publications, too. This will not only enhance your writing skills, it’ll get your name in the blogosphere and help you make new contacts. A lot of blogs take contributors or guest posts, so start with what you know and branch out. If you write a food blog, see if you can guest post for other food bloggers, then try pitching a kid-friendly recipe to a family blog. 4. Diversify Your Skills The best blogs have more than just words. They include high-quality visuals, an appealing layout, creative content, and interactive features. So think about the other skills you can bring to the table aside from writing—such as photography, design, or technical capabilities. And if you don’t have any yet? Pick one and use your own blog to develop it. Try taking your own photos instead of using Creative Commons-licensed images, or try your hand at customizing a header. Developing skills from coding to graphic design to video production can give you a big boost over other blogging candidates. 5. Apply Once you’ve beefed up your blogging resume, the process of finding a corporate blogging position isn’t too different from finding any other new job, with a couple of exceptions. First, keep in mind that “blogger” may not always be in the position title, so make sure to check out communications, marketing, and other related keywords. (A lot of blogging jobs get posted on specialized or writing-oriented sites, so start with ProBlogger, Media Bistro, and Freelance Writing Jobs.) Next, consider part-time blogging positions. Not all companies have the dollars to dedicate a person to a full-time blogger, but that’s OK, especially when you’re starting out. Consider getting your feet wet and some experience through a part-time or freelance position. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Shivambh666 125 Questions 650 Answers 0 Best Answers 1k Points View Profile Shivambh666 Added an answer on April 29, 2020 at 2:56 am And from there, here are the five key things you’ll need to turn your hobby into a job. 1- Know Your Blog.
