Hello to fellow AUSIT members who are dropping by after yesterday’s professional development session on building a strong professional presence online.
I will upload my slides, along with some additional resources, by the end of the day today. In the meantime you might find the following posts interesting:
- A 5-minute video on how I use WordPress for this blog. This is the same system I use for my website.
- Some 5-minute videos with demonstrations of how I use LinkedIn and Google Reader for professional purposes.
- A half-hour presentation on social media for translators, which looks at Tweetdeck (co-presented with Philippa Hammond – check out her blog for a great guest post on search engine marketing (SEO) too).
- Finally, here is a list of 107 blogs by (mainly) freelance translators. (There are also plenty of blogs by interpreters, but these can be a starting point for finding them if you wish). If you’re thinking of starting a blog, it’s a good idea to know what’s out there already. If blogging is not for you, that’s fine too: but you might be interested in keeping up-to-date with what other professionals are writing.
Thank you very much to everyone who attended last night, and for your interesting and insightful questions.
