John Sonmez got me blogging again

to blog or not to blog

Years ago, 9 to be precise, at the very early stages of our, at that time, start-up CWR Mobility, I was very active in the Dynamics CRM community, answering questions on news groups (anyone remember Usenet?), writing technical blog posts about CRM, etc. Actually that was one of the ways we got known in the community and built our brand.

I haven’t been doing that for a long time and frankly I miss it. So I was thinking about getting a new blog up and running and start again. And just at that time I received an email invitation from John Sonmez from to sign up for his email course on starting to blog. Perfect timing!

I’ve been following John Sonmez for quite a while now and he has some good quality content on his blog, YouTube channel and pod casts. Together with Scott Hanselman, he must be one of the most productive people in the business.

Back to the email course about blogging. It’s pretty straight forward. You get an email every few days with a very focused lesson, e.g. Choosing a Theme. Every lesson ends with a homework assignment. It’s short, it’s focused, I like it. If you just follow along with each lesson (shouldn’t take you more than an hour or so) and do your homework, you’ll end up with your blog and your first entry. The first step to building your own personal brand!
