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.
