I spoke to someone I truly adore and admire a couple days ago. “They” were telling me that I needed to brand myself. I know this. That is what I am working on right now. It took me three months to figure it out; now, I’m putting my plan into action.
I told “them” that I am branding myself as a journalist, blogger, and social media expert. “They” asked me what I will be writing about. I told “them” that I am going to become a resource for the South Side of Chicago in the areas of culture, education, employment, health, and youth activities. “They” continued on about branding. So, I had to break it down for this person. First of all, there are very few bloggers on the south side of Chicago that write for large blogging sources. I checked it out. And, we have several community newspapers that share a bit of everything. I am going to partner with those papers, and specialize in those five areas.
As for As NOT Seen on TV. I finally have a focus, and I’m going to work it. There are so many ways I can do AND I finally got started.
I said all that to say that although I thank people for wanting to share, but I got this. I didn’t take my short break for no reason. I stepped back to define and refine my projects, and I’m certain I am on my way.
But, should anyone else have any questions, I am branding myself as a journalist, blogger, and social media marketing expert. Visit any one of my blogs and read for yourself:
Thanks so much.
