Times are changing. I'm growing up. It's been 11 months since I graduated from college. I have moved mountains, spent my days blogging, and enjoyed the last bit of freedom I had before I start to take the real world by storm. Now it is time to be a grown-up. Starting this Friday, I will start my volunteer work at UMDNJ's Marketing Department. This Saturday, I am heading to the Meadowlands with a good friend to attend the 2010 Bamboozle Music Festival. Within two weeks, I will know whether I will intern at BuzzFeed in June or not.
Do you know what that means? Less time blogging, more time working, networking, and building my skills outside this damn house FINALLY! Am I nervous? Of course. Will I become the best intern I can be? Of course. I will try my best to fit the most appropriate blogging schedule before I start working.
By this week, I will decide whether or not to transfer this blog to the WordPress platform, after consulting with others on Twitter about it last night. I thought about leaving Blogger, but the new template designer caught my eye and dissolved all previous thoughts about joining WordPress. Now I want to expand my community with other bloggers online. Blogger is not giving me that community leverage and commitment I need and its new FTP changes). I love Google, but I need a change.
I have two important questions to ask you:
1. What advice would you give someone who is reentering the workforce/corporate America after being unemployed for several months?
2. Now that I know that importing my blog to WordPress is a good strategic move to expand my personal brand, if I do leave Blogger, will you follow me onto my new platform? Do you think I am making the right decision?
