Stepping Up My Game

In the past few months I have moved "A 20-something's Perspective" from a few random posts to a place where I write frequently and am not afraid to share my ideas. I have even gained a few subscribers! But lately I’ve been thinking about my goals for the blog and how I would like to see it grow. Frankly, it is time to step up my game and move “A 20-something’s Perspective” to the next level.

I think a lot of new bloggers get to this point and are not quite sure what to do or how to make the improvements they seek. Luckily, Dan Schawbel, a leading personal branding expert for Gen-Y, has just published Me 2.0, and is sharing his 52-page "Blogging Your Brand” guide online.

The free guide has some of the best blogging advice I have ever read. It is clear and concise outlining specific steps bloggers can take to make improvements. It is broken up into four sections (beginner, intermediate, advanced and expert) and I am looking forward to putting his advice into practice. You can download a copy of the guide here.

So what does all this mean for “A 20-something’s Perspective?”
Within the next couple months I plan to buy my domain name and make the switch to WordPress. In addition, I want to add more ways for others to share my content through StumbleUpon, Digg, Delicious and other social platforms. The blog’s content is also going to grow and will try to focus more on being a 20-something in the Advertising/PR field. In the future I would like to include interviews, guest blog posts and maybe even some video.

I’m really looking forward to taking this blog to the next level. As I embark on this journey please tell me what you would like to see at "A 20-something's Perspective." Are there topics you would like covered? Is there some new functionality you crave? Please feel free to share your ideas in the comments section or send me an e-mail at sarahsoczka@gmail.com. I look forward to hearing from you.

Hey Sarah,
Awesome post - I really like the e-guide. I want to start blogging like you and some of the other PRSSA girls have and this seems like a really great starting point. Where did you find the guide at?
