Today I’ve been feeling under the weather again so I wanted to address a little thing that I’ve really failed at for the whole three years I’ve been blogging: LinkedIn.
Lately I’ve been getting several requests to connect with various people on LinkedIn, some of whom I know, some I don’t. They’ve been from authors and publishers, editors and illustrators and they all have one thing in common: my amazement at the fact I received them. It’s flattering. It really is flattering to know that some people would like to connect on a more professionally-oriented network.
But at this time I will not be accepting any invites onto LinkedIn. I currently do not have a profile and do not wish to have one. If at some point in the future I do get one it will be connected to my actual career and not my admittedly awesome and time-consuming hobby. So while it’s flattering that some of you want to connect with me on LinkedIn, I won’t be accepting any invites in the future either. It’s absolutely nothing personal and I didn’t mean to ignore your requests but none of the invitations I’ve received in my email link to a polite refusal button of some sort.
Sorry for not clarifying that sooner.
