Were you skipped on the last career promotion opportunity with your employer? Perhaps you’re looking into starting a new career path. Maybe you wish to find work with a remote employer. To obtain any of these, you need to prove your worth. What better way to do so, than with a blog?
Some people may be afraid to start blogging, or don’t know how. Luckily, a developer by the name of John Sonmez has create a step-by-step course on blogging to boost your career!
I stumbled across John Sonmez’s Simple Programmer website while looking for programming podcasts actually. I had started a new programming language at work and I was looking for something to listen to and get a bit of an edge. I liked the content of his podcast list so I started poking around when I came across his “Create a Blog to Boost Your Career Workbook“. I thought, 5 bucks, not the end of the world if it’s not useful. It was the kick in the butt I needed.
Honestly, I was a bit hesitant to start a blog. I didn’t know much about starting one, didn’t know what to write about, and just made other excuses that were holding me back. John Sonmez’s Create a Blog to Boost Your Career Workbook guides you through the entire process of setting up a blog to start blogging in minutes. No programming experience required!
The lessons are sent to you via email on a bi-weekly basis. This gives you time to complete each step at your convenience. If you purchase the workbook, which at the time of writing this is 5 dollars, you’ll be given access to all lessons and course material at once so you can complete it as fast as you like.
I have only a couple lessons to go, and this course has already been worth every penny. John Sonmez’s blogging course has given me enough direction and motivation to continue hammering out blog posts on content that I’m genuinely interested in.
Given the value this course provides, it would even be worth it at full price. Think about it – if you take this course and it helps you create a blog that gets you that promotion, that new career, maybe even some money from advertising, you’ll make that money back and then some.
Have a look at John Sonmez’s Create a Blog to Boost Your Career Workbook, I definitely recommend the purchase and stay tuned for some great Android IoT development posts.
If you’re looking for more than blog help, John also wrote a great book for developing a programmers soft skills. I’ve recently finished reading it and it’s not only motivational but contains plenty of great advice for advancing in your career, investing, fitness, basically a life manual. The book is target for programmers but I believe it can be beneficial for most people regardless of the profession.
