Wow! I just applied for early admission for LinkedIn Publisher a few days ago. The news of my acceptance came as a ‘Pop Up’ message on my profile last night. (I should kick myself for not doing a screen capture!)
I now have a “pencil” icon in my “Share an update” window. It is just to the left of the paperclip (attachment) icon.
I told Ely and Jack (Judy was at her mahjong Thursday night event and unavailable) and started researching all of the available help files on LinkedIn.
Thoughts of “what should I write my first blog on” raced through my head. I made notes. I talked with Ely about my initial decision to talk about networking. This is in light of our recent launch of Chicago Speed Networking and Judy’s and my first E-book which is now in draft stage.
And, of course as usual, I decided to let the thought process percolate over night as I do (or should do) with all new opportunities.
This morning it came to me and I just finished the first draft to the LinkedIn Publisher blog which I hope to submit later today. I asked Judy to review it and give me her thoughts. She also commented: “You can’t send Jack everything” to review.
I will not divulge my subject matter here, but it is a common theme I trumpet throughout my LinkedIn workshops and seminars. I will show however you the graphic I designed for it (below).
As always your comments and suggestions are welcome below.
