John Sonmez’s blog course

Today I’ll talk about something a bit different; the reason why I started writing this blog in the first place. That reason is John Sonmez, who runs the Simple Programmer. I first heard of John on episode 187 of the Ruby Rogues where he talked about “Marketing Yourself as a Software Developer”. John succeeded in making me excited about the subject and I have since started this blog and promised myself to write at least one post every week. I really felt that John was on to something and it connects nicely with articles I’ve been reading about controlling your public profile and being seen. Do you have control over your public profile? What shows up when you google your name?
