Before You Make the Leap: Blogging Your Passion While Working a 9-to-5

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Many of us bloggers are growing our media empires “on the side” – working a day job while also working our blogs part-time. The common thinking is to covet the full-time blogging career, but finding ways to use your blogging and social media skills in the workplace can be just the right boost to your career or help transition to blogging full-time (if that’s what you want!). For those interested in climbing the corporate ladder or adding to their work experience, finding opportunities to use your blogging skills can lead to working on cross-functional teams, greater visibility in your work organization, adding some security to your current position, transitioning to a new role, or ultimately a promotion. And for those working towards the goal of becoming a “full-time” blogger, we’ll discuss how to maintain a balance between both workloads, streamlining goals and laying the foundation for making the career leap.
