I am by nature a very humble & private person. Having a blog, I know that one way to brand is to tell people about yourself & your life. This makes you relatable & human. While on one hand that sounds very normal, it always gets scary when you feel like you are exposing yourself or telling people too much and you keep editing out things. Editing out may reduce your work to a skeleton or an ugly weightless shell of words. A writer needs to strike a balance on how much info you give about yourself, how much value you provide etc. I am trying to learn how to Self-promote without Bragging and How to Brag about your Brand without ‘Bragging’. I think every artist, writer, brand, blogger, entrepreneur etc need to read this.
It was scary but such a pleasure to be featured on Daily Nation, Saturday Magazine alongside such amazing women bloggers. Thanking God for everything.
