I had not read Steve’s blog earlier – for one thing, the Personal Plus account membership is definitely making me more proactive! – I was browsing other OpenLink member profiles and I’d seen Steve’s name on the various forums that I’m a member of. He’d also provided a link to his blog from his profile [ I wonder why LinkedIn doesn’t provide a space for clickable weblinks – even after they’ve been hearing this suggestion from loads of members ].

There is this one entry on the blog about Why employees should be encouraged to join LinkedIn where Steve not only goves some compelling answers to that question, but also shares some of his “ground rules” like:

While LinkedIn is a very nifty tool, it’s just that – a tool. It’s not anyone’s life or self esteem. It’s not going to spell success or failure for anyone by itself. Don’t take it too seriously!

Short and sweet!
