I’m constantly amazed by all the social connections that are made on the internet, either new or revitalized old ones. Just earlier this week, I received the following email from a childhood friend who I haven’t spoken to since I was 12 years old:
“Blake: This is Brian Jones, of Stillwater [Oklahoma], former 6th grade Rebel footballer, crew of Jeff Berry, Travis Tyner, Barry Heald, Matt Holliday [the starting Rockies left fielder], and yourself at one time. I was online Googling: ipod video rockies, because I’m a video coordinator with the Colorado Rockies and was just seeing how far the story had gotten, and to make a long story short, I came across your Smooth Harold blog. Crazy to find you out there.”
If you do decide to blog, make it a networking priority, if not a top priority in your work day. It will bless you professionally, financially, and personally in ways that you couldn’t have imagined.
