Why Blog?

If you’re Starting-A-Blog-Hesitant, then you need this post from the great Chuck Grimmett, Why Blog?

“Blogging has more of an impact on careers than most people realize…. Blogging got me three of my four full time jobs post college. All three told me that my blog played a crucial role in their decision to send me an offer.”
