20 Success Habits

Digital marketing is pretty amazing. I like it a lot and its what I do for work. The stuff you are learning in this class will help you in your future. And there is no telling where you will end up in your career. You may work in an agency, you may start your own company. You might work in marketing or communications at a company. The sky is the limit.

I am always on the lookout for great posts and today I found one that I think can help you succeed in the future.

What Supporting Skills Should You Be Sharpening?

The web design community frequently discusses the need for a "T" shaped skill set. This refers to the idea that you have a broad base of skills (the top of the T) and a deep focus in a particular area (the stem of the T.) This is particularly important in web design because of the wide range of tasks a "web designer" might perform. For example, on a given day I might review proposals, meet with clients, document functionality, write code, design interactions or craft a brand identity.

Your Take on Blogging Thus Far

While I blogged in high school, my business' blog is the only blog I've maintained consistently (for eight years running.) It's interesting and sometimes embarrassing to look through my archives and read some of my earlier posts. But more interesting is the birds eye view where I can see the evolution of the blog, not only how the subject matter has change but also post frequency.
