Just blogging

I am working on blogging a little bit every day. I feel that it really helps me to increase my industry knowledge by asking questions and receiving answers and answering the questions that I see and know the answer to. There really is not down side to blogging.

Blogging not only creates relationships, credibility, and gives me a place to keep a "professional journal" but it also increases my exposure on the web greatly.

This is my first post of the day. I usually post a couple times a day. I'm really trying to get my points up. I am nearly 10k points now. I am working to take the number one spot in NY (I know it won't be easy Jen). I am building some of my own stuff that I want to integrate AR into.
