After a couple of years as a professional blogger, I realized I had some new and unique skills. For instance I could: write, promote, analyze traffic and SEO trends, build community, network in the social network and media communities, and much more. Many bloggers don't realize it, but these skills can be used to propel them to other careers. I took the knowledge I gained as a blogger for hire, and founder of the number online community and resource for freelance writers, Freelance Writing Jobs, and used it to land an awesome full time job as BlogTalkRadio's Community Manager. As more businesses realize they need to create an online presence, more jobs for community managers, social networkers, corporate bloggers and more will open up. What skills did you learn while blogging - and how can you use them to advance your career?
