Once upon a time, I was a recent journalism school graduate at a time when most publications were firing all their writers. I sought solace in blogging, which eventually lead to the world of social media. I’m probably the last journalism school class that made it through without ever once discussing social networking as a tool in your arsenal. I figured it out as I went (like most everyone else) and eventually realized the increase in traffic and exposure that I could garner with social media. Thankfully, I found my happily ever after here at Benchmark. For our May series on the Benchmark Blog, we’re going to help you do the same.
