Hi,

Needed advice on Extra-curricular in Resume! So I write personal blog related to my life experiences. They are really not targeted to any particular topic, However, they are more open sharing of thoughts and ideas.
I wanted to know if it would be good to include writing a blog, along with blog name , in Resume? Though it is said that admission team wants to know the real you, Are there any implications to it?

Thanks!

Sure this would be something nice to add. It doesn't sound like you would get a lot of "points" for this to be honest relative to other EC activities but depending on what else you have, a blog can be a nice addition.

Good luck!

Best,
Scott

Hi 700ABOVE,

I completely agree with Scott.

I just wanted to add to his comment that you should include some sort of indicator of impact, e.g.: number of posts, number of followers, number of comments, daily visits, etc... Just about anyone can write a blog so just saying you write one won't add much value. But if you can show any of the above indicators it will strengthen your case.

I hope this helps.

Good luck!
Alex
