Switching My LinkedIn Profile To Creator Mode

Hi, fellow creative types! Or business people. Or whatever. I did something a few days ago and I’m not sure why. I switched my LinkedIn Profile to Creator Mode, which I think lets me share stuff like articles and blog posts easier. Although, I haven’t really tried it yet. I’m kind of afraid. I haven’t mixed my creative writing life with my office life very much yet. I also write about weird things so my co-workers could totally be like “OMG Eric is weird”.

Well, they probably already think Eric is weird, so I don’t guess it matters too much, does it? But, I know LinkedIn wouldn’t care about a basic blog post like this. It would have to be a blog post about something more substantial. Maybe my post about my experiences of the Udemy and LinkedIn Learning platforms or something. Then, of course there’s a the short stories that I post on Fridays. Those are like, the whole point of this thing.

I also just realized that’s pretty confusing. I’m using this blog to help with my creative writing, but I’m talking about business stuff a lot because of the MBA that I just got. (There I go again, bragging about the MBA.) Actually, since we’re bragging again and since I’ve been taking stock in my academic accomplishments lately, I have another thing that I forgot to share. I have a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Certificate from the University of South Florida. I did it back i nMay but I was so busy with other stuff that I kind of forgot about sharing it. Also I wasn’t as into bragging about my academic accomplishments then.

Anyway, It was an interesting six week program. I got to enjoy some intriguing discussions and hear fro some great industry leaders.

Okay, it’s a work day so I have to go into the office now.




leave me a comment below so that I’m not talking to the void. It would also be nice if the content reached past my ridiculously long sidebar 😉

I’m Eric Shay Howard and I’m a bad blogger. I’m also an author. I live in Louisville, Kentucky and work at a law firm.

I’m currently a graduate student in a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing program. Lately, I’ve been blogging about that. I also have a Master of Business Administration and have completed a few certificate programs in Human Resource related studies. Occasionally I blog about business and other MBA-related things. Blogging about my day, bad dates, or package delivery issues are also not out of the question.

I wrote a fiction collection called Crushes and self-published it because sometimes I just like to push buttons and see what happens. I think this book is pretty alright, I suppose. Buying a copy helps me out. Feel free to leave a review on Amazon as well.

Blogs and People I Like

Here are some other blogs and people that I like to read or keep up with. The order is arbitrary because I started out going for alphabetical order but then got busy with classes or something so now sometimes I just rearrange them for no reason.

Equipment Test! Podcast Artwork

I made a really bad podcast over the summer called Equipment Test! because I bought a microphone. But if you like really bad podcasts, you can listen to it here, or find it on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and other places.
