Can running a blog help my employment prospects? >>>Ron>>>

It depends to a large extent on how your blog presents you, both as a person and as a potential employee, relative to the job you're applying for. If your blog is a major polemic rant against all of society in general and vivisectionists in particular and you're applying for a job as security guard of a company developing medicines then it's not likely to go well for you if they check you out online. However, applying for the same job, if your blog presents you as a fine upstanding citizen then at the very least it's not going to count against you. The trick is to always think what you post online before you do it as it can stick around and be found for a long time. HTH, Jon
