Bram, Thursday. “Your Blog is Your Portfolio: Landing Blog Writing Gigs.” Daily Blog Tips. Daily Blog Tips, 2010. Web.

Thursday Bram’s guest post outlines a few ways that writers can utilize their personal blogs as portfolios in order to secure more writing gigs. She points out that it is not only important to have a blog to impress potential employers, but exhibiting good blog behavior is essential to getting  the job. The main three rules to follow are to post consistently, interact with your readers, and to do whatever you can to increase traffic. Bram obviously oversimplifies the process, but she makes an interesting point that how you blog is just as important as the content of your posts.
