Benefits of Blogging

- Makes you more engaged with current issues
- Helps you build an online presence and (for the lack of a better word) concrete and accessible examples of your work
As part of their series on Personal Branding, the International Librarians Network wrote this great post about the importance of professional writing.
Professional writing is a valuable way to make your stamp on the world. It is a way to share your thoughts, showcase your knowledge but also to build your reputations with colleagues near and far.

While we can’t guarantee that every post will be published on the blog, here are some basic guidelines:
- Priority will be given to iSchool students or members of SLA
- Topics should related to information, special libraries or collections, information organizations more widely, communication and technology, etc.
- The post can take the form of a personal reflection, book review, a critical look at an issue or event, or another form that you’d like to try. We can talk about it 🙂
- If you have a personal blog, or any social media accounts, we can link to it all! The post cannot be anonymous, but if you don’t want to link to your social media accounts, that’s fine as well!
