B is for Blog

Group of people standing on the Salesforce Ohana floor

Are you new to the Salesforce ecosystem? Or maybe just looking for some inspiration? No matter who you are, you can benefit from the power of a good Salesforce blog.

Read

Blogs are a great place to get started when you are beginning your journey in the Salesforce ecosystem. The Salesforce community writes blogs about things that excite and motivate them – which in turn will excite and motivate you. There are blogs around events, products, solutions and general tips. By finding and following a few good blogs, you can get ideas for how you can continue to grow your career and learn a thing or two about all the latest Salesforce news and releases. For example, if you’re stuck on a Superbadge, go check out Gemma Emmett’s blog ‘Always a Blezzard’ (pictured above) Or take some hints from Christine Marshall on her ‘Everyday Admin’ blog. We can’t forget the ultimate blog of blogs for all things Salesforce – Salesforce Ben (also pictured above). But don’t take our word for it, go check them out for yourself.

Write

Once you’ve read a good blog post or two, you may be ready to share some of our own learning, tips and stories. By keeping a blog you are 1) creating something that you can look back on and see your own growth, 2) inspiring others who may be coming from the same background as you and 3) giving back by sharing your ideas, experiences and tips. If you think you’re not quite ready to take on a full blog yourself, try writing a guest post or two. Salesforce Ben regularly posts guest posts and we’d love to have you post here as well – just get in touch with Abigail@supermums.org

Share

Have you found a blog post that you love? Is it something that really got you thinking or made you realise that you too can make it? Or maybe it’s a really cool solution or tip that you wish you would have thought about yourself? Don’t keep it to yourself – share it! Post it on Twitter, LinkedIn, our Supermums Facebook group, or anywhere! We can’t tell you the number of times that we’ve come across a blog only because somebody else shared it on social media. It also tells your social media Ohana (family – stayed tuned for week ‘O’) a little bit about your interests and is the opportunity to engage with your network.

Are you a Supermums trainee, volunteer or partner interested in writing a guest post on our Supermums blog? Reach out to Abigail Julian at abigail@supermums.org.
