PDF File or Word Doc?


If you would have asked me a while back about creating a PDF File, I would have probably given you a crazy look and then asking you why?  But now that I’m a bit more savvy and have learned so much since blogging, I would now probably say …Why Not?

I’m still not an expert at this who PDF stuff but I’m gradually learning it’s benefits versus the use of a regular word doc.   When you CreatePDF  files  you will have the ease of quickly uploading files that you can e-mail to others or save in files on your computer.  It also allows you to combine PDF files too.

One of the main benefits of using a PDF is that it cannot be edited.  That is a perfect feature for all of your important documents you need to email to others.  When I decide to finally put together a media kit for my blog, this is definitely the route I will go.  Not only will it keep my information protected, it will also provide a more professional feel for when presenting to PR professionals.  As we know, first impressions are lasting and it’s always best to make a good one.

    I use a free program to convert to PDF but eventually will purchase a program that allows me to create PDF’s. Reason being? I can create items that can’t edited! Love this post, thanks for your thoughts.

    I always create word documents and convert them to pdfs. Depending on what I am doing I also sometimes convert the pdfs to jpegs. It’s quite a process!
