STC Eastern Iowa is excited to announce a chapter blogging platform open to all members of STC Eastern Iowa!
Blogging is a great way to hone your skills, showcase your expertise and engage with the regional community of technical writers. What’s more, blogging skills are in high demand by employers who have an online presence. In 2012 over 1/4 of all Fortune 500 companies used a blog to promote their brand and connect with customers. This represents a 5% increase over 20111 and is part of a clear trend in business to increase the use of social media to drive business value.
