Lots of people will tell you to go and start a blog if you want to work at a startup.
They say it’s a great way to develop a following – a following that will loop you in to some great startup job opportunities.
I think this is really bad advice.

If you’re going to invest in building your online presence and you’re starting from zero your best bet is to piggyback on one of the many existing vibrant communities on the web.
Starting a blog can be a great way to pick up and show off those technical ‘table stakes’ startup skills like web analytics, HTML/CSS, and email marketing. But it’s a terrible way to build a network in the startup community.
