LinkedIn

Does anyone here use LinkedIn? I just set up a profile there this week, and would be interested to know others' experiences with it.

I haven't really done anything with it yet, as I filled out the profile and then got distracted for the rest of the week. I'd heard that there can be great opportunities for writers there though, so I thought it was worth a try. I admit that networking is not something I've ever been very good at, and in fact my natural inclination is to avoid it, so I'm not sure how comfortable I will be on the site. But since I had promised myself that I would take the "try anything" approach this year as far as writing goes, I decided to give it a shot.

If anyone reading this is on LinkedIn, please share. I'd love to connect there, get suggestions for using the site, or just hear about your experiences.

  2. I use it horribly sporadically. My favorite mode of connecting with others is Twitter

  6. I know people who are on it but it seems too personal to me - I don't want my resume seen by the public.

  7. @LynnMarie, that's so nice of you to say, thanks!

    @Angie, thanks for coming by! I really enjoy your blog.

    @Carmie, that's kind of how I felt about LinkedIn, I'm not sure how comfortable I am with using it. I agree with you on the resume.
