The old say that “There’s more than one way to skin a cat” can certainly be applied to the topic of making money blogging.
Everyday I hear of a different example of a blogger who has managed to make a buck (or two) from the medium in a different way. One of the most recent examples from a reader comes from Matt Coddington who just posted about how he leveraged his blog to land his dream job by using the blog as a substitute to a resume.
“I scrapped the resume and wrote a letter instead. In the letter I leveraged the success of my most recent site, Net Business Blog, to demonstrate my knowledge of the web industry. It worked. I got the job I wanted (as well as a ton of interviews with other companies).”
Matt even shares the letter he sent prospective employees to get the job.
