    Such wonderful points, and these are not the usual, generic ones that are plastered all over the internet. Always a pleasure reading your posts, and I must commend you on the amount of thought and work you put into making your posts interesting, relatable and enjoyable.
    Great post!
    I’d love it if you’d check out my new post at

      Thank you!! That means a lot! I do worry sometimes that I spend too long writing my blog posts. It’s hard to balance it all!
      I will check out your post 🙂 x

    LOVED this! Such great points! Blogging has taught me so much and has expanded my skills. It even helped me focus more on marketing and communications. <3

      Thank you girl! If I had realised how beneficial blogging would be to me, I would have created one 10 years ago! I guess better late than never! x

    So many excellent points made here! Running a blog can help anyone advance through life, regardless of what field they work in. I think it shows excellent time management skills and organisation skills, particularly if you manage to consistently create content and keep up with the technical side of blogging and social media promotion while in education/employment. And of course, blogging has helped boost my confidence more than anything else, which is so important as far as enhancing one’s career prospects is concerned. Thank you for helping to spread this information! Xx

      Thank you Maria! Blogging really has boosted my confidence. I never thought I would talk about half the things I do! And I agree, it does show great management and organisation skills. I’ve had to re-prioritise my life in order to fit blogging in. xx

      Literally, when you blog, you are benefitting your career and life. You can never spend too many hours doing that 😛 xxx

    I definitely agree with a lot of these! While I haven’t dabbled in working with brands (or even reaching out actually), it has led me to discovering a whole variety of hobbies like baking and photography!

    • LauraJ says

      Your baking always looks good. I assumed you were already a pro before blogging. I don’t know how much my photography skills have improved since starting, but I think about angles now and composition. Before, I would just snap and edit.

    YES YES YES! I love this post – blogging (can be) such an asset to a resume. I work in digital marketing and I actually landed my first job (with zero experience) because of my blog! xx

I would love to read your thoughts!
