Networking Poetry on LinkedIn

LinkedIn is the largest professional network on the internet. You join LinkedIn to network – to meet likeminded professionals, find a new and better job, develop potential customers, identify someone at an organization to talk with about a job opening, and engage in a discussion of topics of professional interest. Employers also use it to check and research job applicants.

As I started to participate more in the network, I began developing a theory. I suspected there might be a most unlike-business activity that was important for many people on LinkedIn – the activity being poetry. I’m not sure why I thought this; I had never seen anyone networking for a poet’s job and there might be five poets in the United States who make their living from poetry. It was just a theory, based on no hard facts of suggestive evidence.
