Bloggers - All Talk, No Walk?
My retort is this: Do you consider reading, networking, or workshops to be a waste of time, too?
Before one can take action - those first small steps - one should be prepared for the journey ahead. Some of us learn by absorbing information through books and online forums; some through classes and tutorials; some through hands on trial and error. I'd like to believe most of us are a mix of all three.
I understand the criticism of some professionals, who feel blogging, like meetings and retreats, and (gasp) reading, can take the form of passivity. I understand the limitations of time.
But I have learned so much from the writings of other professionals who freely share their knowledge, as well as from my own challenge to write on a daily basis.
This knowledge has inspired action on my part - either through participation in similar projects, such as 100 Bloggers - or through new business projects that have directly or indirectly come from this valuable networking and wisdom sharing tool.
I'm curious, what has blogging inspired you to DO?
