Writing was always an interest of mine.
I’ll never forget the time I wrote a 20 page story for my 8th grade teacher when she only asked for 1.
To be fair, I was already 12 pages in when I realized there was a page limit. Might as well go all out right?
Fast forward a few years later, I found myself writing as a means of self growth and reflection.
Eventually I posted some of these onto Instagram, which didn’t do too well because Instagram isn’t necessarily a text-based platform.
Still, I needed a place to put my words so I bought a domain and published my daily posts on WordPress.
However, the downside of WordPress is that it isn’t an awareness tool. If you want more attention for your stuff, you have to go to where the people are.
That’s where social media comes in.
Fortunately for me, LinkedIn is a flexible professional platform that allows long+short text posts, photos, and videos on the feed.
Now I publish all my posts onto LinkedIn (+ more).
I treat it as part of my blog, and I get to talk and meet with some cool people.
