    Networking is so hard…
    Now that I’m looking for a job, everyone keeps telling me to “network more”, but I don’t know how!
    I like and write comments on things I see on LinkedIn (if I have something to say about the thing). But that’s it… I try to mention, if the situation allows for it, that I don’t have a job when talking to someone new.
    More than that, I’m really, really bad at it… Just getting to know new people… sigh =)

      I’m not the best at using LinkedIn! There’s almost too many social sites to keep up with. I think DM’s on Instagram can be effective. Some people hate them, but if you are not selling stuff, most people are interested. And I think just researching to see if there are any events you can attend or different support groups etc.
      That’s what I’m going to try to do this year. See if I can attend any blogging events to connect more.

    These are great tips girl! I’m really good at networking online for sure but def need to improve on socializing and networking in the corporate world. Online networking is a great foundation but def need to network in the real world which I feel is really important.

      I think it’ might be an issue with practice. I’m so use to networking online, knowing what to say with writing. But from where I’ve lacked experience in person, I feel less confidence. Maybe it’s even a generation thing? You have the lovliest personality so I’m sure you’ll be great at it. x

    I feel like I suck at networking. It’s rare that I actually end up talking about my blog to others. I don’t know why I get so shy about it. I just feel like my blog’s not good enough or big enough to share with others yet…and I know that doesn’t really make sense, but it makes sense to me. I’ve been trying to be more proud and talk myself up. Great post Laura, I’ll take your tips into consideration 🙂 xx

      See I thought that way as well. But for a blog to become big, it has to be known or spoken about. Your work is fantastic so you should have zero shame or shyness in sharing. I completely get it though! xxx
