Jeremiah has an early January sort of post, exhorting us to reflect on our “career mission” as a focusing exercise. I don’t want to dig into that, honestly, although I think it’s sensible for any of us to contemplate what we are up to, and not just at the start of a new year.
What I found most interesting was Jeremiah’s inclusion of a pre-shrunk URL linking to the article, along with a ‘Was this helpful?’ slug:
[from What’s Your Career Mission?]
Was this helpful? copy, paste then tweet it:
You are a Company of One: What’s Your Career Mission? http://snipurl.com/9mvi4
I have seen the emergence of a new pattern of blogging where authors write a post, and immediately write an introductory tweet to draw their followers attention to it. I have been doing that myself for the past several weeks, and I have seen great response.
