Including a link to your personal blog on your job resume can be a great way to enhance your professional profile and highlight your skills and expertise. However, it’s important to make sure that you’re doing it in a way that is effective and appropriate. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your personal blog when you’re adding it to your job resume.
Choose a Professional Blog Platform
When you’re creating your personal blog, make sure to choose a professional blogging platform. There are many platforms out there that offer a variety of features and customization options. WordPress, for instance, is a popular platform for creating blogs and offers a variety of themes, plugins and tools to help you get the most out of your blog.
Write Quality Content
Your blog should contain quality content that is relevant to the job you’re applying for. Make sure to update your blog regularly with fresh and interesting content. Potential employers will be impressed by your dedication and willingness to share your knowledge. Additionally, writing quality content can help you develop your writing skills, which can be beneficial in many aspects of your career.
Keep It Professional
Remember that your personal blog is a reflection of your professional profile. Even though it’s a personal blog, make sure to keep it professional. Avoid posting anything that could be deemed unprofessional, inappropriate or offensive. Additionally, make sure to read through your posts before you publish them to ensure that there are no typos or errors. This will help you make a good impression on potential employers.
Include a Link to Your Blog
When you’re creating your job resume, make sure to include a link to your personal blog. This will help potential employers get a better sense of who you are and what you can offer. Additionally, it will give them the opportunity to view your writing skills and the topics you write about. However, make sure to include a link to your blog in a professional manner and be sure to be selective about the content you link to.

However, it can be tricky to figure out how to incorporate your blog into your resume in a creative and effective way. Here are some ideas to help you get started:
- Feature It in the Summary Section - The Summary section of your resume is the perfect place to mention your blog. Include a sentence or two about what your blog is about and the topics you cover. Make sure to include the link so employers can easily access it.

Your personal blog can be more than just a place to share your thoughts and ideas. It can also be a powerful tool to help you stand out from other job applicants. By including a link to your blog on your resume, you can show potential employers that you are an engaged and knowledgeable professional.
One of the best ways to use your blog to help you get noticed is to include a portfolio of your work and accomplishments. This can include blog posts, articles, or other projects you have completed. You can also link to any awards you have received or any professional memberships you belong to.
You can also use your blog to demonstrate your writing skills and knowledge of your field. This can include blog posts related to your industry or even reviews of products or services you have used. By showing your expertise and enthusiasm, you can make yourself stand out from other applicants.
Finally, you can use your blog to show off your personality. You can share stories about your hobbies and interests or your favorite quotes and books. This is a great way to give potential employers a better sense of who you are and what you can bring to their organization.
Including a link to your personal blog on your job resume is an excellent way to make yourself stand out from other job applicants. By taking the time to showcase your work, knowledge, and personality, you can give yourself an edge in the job search.
Having a personal blog can be a great way to showcase your skills and experiences to potential employers. Not only does it demonstrate your writing abilities, but it can also demonstrate your knowledge of a certain industry. But should you include a link to your blog on your job resume?
The answer to this question depends on the type of job you are applying for. For example, if you are applying for a job in a creative field, such as graphic design or web development, it may be beneficial to include a link to your personal blog. This will show employers that you not only have the technical skills and knowledge, but also the creativity and drive to create interesting and engaging content.
On the other hand, if you are applying for a job in a more traditional field, such as accounting or finance, it may be better to leave your blog off of your resume. While having a blog can be beneficial in certain fields, it is not always necessary for more traditional fields. In these cases, it is best to focus on other experiences and qualifications that are more relevant to the job.
Ultimately, the decision to include a link to your personal blog on your job resume should be based on the type of job you are applying for and the content of your blog. If the content is relevant to the job and showcases your skills and experiences, then it may be beneficial to include a link. However, if the content is not relevant or does not showcase your skills and experiences, then it is best to leave it off.

You probably should be a bit further ahead than you are. Being an actress definitely has a short shelf life. Let’s be honest, you’re no Judy dench! (But don’t be surprised if you are in the same audition one day soon) #old 😉

Ha! I have no amusing come back…
Great post (good to have you ‘back’!). 2015 will be a good one for you (in acting and in life) xx
(Hope jobloggs is ‘joking’/a friend)…
but this year coming will give so many opportunities; provide fewer stressful situations- and plenty of acting joy. The last few years- you have been acting/I have known you- you have developed hugely as a person; become more confident and grown hugely- achieved a huge amount; supported great causes and done so fantastic work. It is near-impossible to balance ‘normal’ life with acting; all the day-to-day stuff with (doing what you want to do).
The fact that you have managed to find a great place; carve a great life- and see some awesome places- is all down to hard work and determination. All of that grit and hard work will see you achieve your acting goals. I know you can be ‘hard’ on yourself, but being so young- and having such a range and bag of tricks in your arsenal- it is merely a matter of time before the plaudits, roles (and ‘dream chasing’) becomes a reality.
On February 1st, 2011, I ‘stumbled upon’ mylittleponderings; compelled to start my own blog- effectively made me want to review music/write music; connect with the wider world. In your personal life, you have been indefatigable and strong- overcome some hard times; fought hard and long (to create happiness and stability). Now that (that) is in place; you have some time and ‘breath’ to augment and stratergise- make sure the career wheels keep burning and spinning.
Every role (and video) I have seen you in leads me to believe that you will appear in your Breaking Bad; your How I Met Your Mother; your Orange is the New Black- whether it is here or in the U.S. Having done the whole Cambridge/Footlights acting thing, I have seen/known some people (far less talented than you) go onto HUGE things- Downtown Abbey for one. You work so damn hard (to get auditions) that it will happen sooner (rather than later).
You stated- in one of your earliest blogs- to ‘focus’: that is the most important thing (to achieve your goals). You have inspired me to pursue my own ambitions (and to stop procrastinating), and to think about the world in a larger sense: in terms of ‘doing better’, you have done extraordinary things- for more people than you realise.
I’m rambling, but few people manage to balance a personal life and acting one- fewer manage to do it successfully. Before (the U.K. and world) knows it, we will be seeing your (good self) in some great comedies; top-notch dramas- and some unique/’artistic’ roles. You are a chameleon and Gill-of-all-trades; someone determined to make great things happen.
Long may your blogs, photos, insights; stories, sagas and ambitions continue: loads of people are impressed by how far you have come (since the first time I knew of you, you have developed into a multicoloured and stunning butterfly). Never lose sight; never start doubting; never stop chasing- this year will be yours; you will truly ‘smash it’…
Judi Dench didn’t get her first ‘big role’ until she was (in her) 30s… 🙂
