As orange is the new black, blog is the new CV. Since the dawn of the internet, a lot has changed in our society. Social media has become the new way to hangout, while business owners gain customers from it. One way or the other, the internet has changed the way we think, act and live. Some people have gotten high paying jobs due to having an online presence. Clients first check Instagram and Facebook before deciding to work with you, talk about a new search engine like Twitter where you can quickly get information about people. Most of the time, this results have been made possible thanks to blogs. With it you already have a space of your own on the internet. While Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn are great platforms to be on, people still use the excuse of social media to mess up. They post, comment, and share things that later come to hunt them. This isn't the case with a blog. Blogging is a platform where everyone knows you either share great contents or piss off. Because you paid for it and you wouldn't want your money gone, you'll have no choice but to act accordingly. Besides, social media could disappear tomorrow, what would you do? Have your own blog.
