So, I found myself thinking about what blog to write and if I really wanted to write one as I felt the steely gaze of our fantastic Brand & Digital Manager who was waiting for the blogs to be put forward from the team.

What should I write, interview tips? Done before. Dress codes? Done before. Industry specific? Done before.

How can I stand out from the crowd? I don't have the silver bullet or the answer to world peace. I am a business man, a consultant, a getter of things done. What could I possibly say to make people listen and who do I even want to listen?

Here's the thing. The reason everyone should write a blog is because they can, because we should all exercise our right to an opinion. We don’t all have to agree on everything, that's the beauty of opinion, it creates debate which can effect change. Blogging improves people's grammar, helps people learn how to research, builds their knowledge on issues and events and hopefully educates a few people along the way.

I listened to Jack Delosa from The Entourage speak a few weeks ago, and he advocates that the way we educate ourselves is changing, we take small pieces of information and learn through technology via online education and yes blogs, articles, online journals etc.

So if you think you can't write a blog please just pick up your phone, laptop or sit at your PC and start typing. There are many resources available to give you tips and assistance. Even if you get no responses, no likes and no retweets you will have achieved something. You will have flexed your grey matter and made your creative juices flow.

Blogging is good for you! My one piece of advice when you’re online: #dontbeahater."
