A few years ago Ed Leighton-Dick started the #SQLNewBlogger challenge. He asked people to start writing about their career and building their own brand. I thought it was a great idea and I’ve been continuing the challenge on my own blog, writing posts and also including a short note on the effort for me to produce posts.
It’s early 2022, and if you haven’t been blogging, and you want to grow your career, start writing. Set up a blog and produce some posts. You will build communication skills, you will showcase your knowledge, and provide potential employers with some due diligence about why you would be a good addition to their team.
Think about tagging these posts with #SQLNewBlogger as well. You’ll promote these alongside other people’s posts and perhaps will find yourself a new, better position this year.
