How to brand your blog
Why you need to brand yourself
How branding helps your online business.
I’ve seen the posts and I bet you have too. I’ve even read a couple. And I’ve spent many a day implementing and trying to adapt to a branding model. I’ve tried. I’ve really tried. But I have finally come to the conclusion that I can’t do it. Or maybe I don’t want to. Either way. Doesn’t matter. Branding does not work for me or my blog.
If you are preparing to post a comment or shoot me off an email about how you can do it for me, stop right there. Let me tell you about myself.
Ever since I was little, I liked to re-arrange my bedroom furniture. And re-decorate. I get bored or I notice a beautiful new layout in a design magazine. Since getting home from England a few weeks ago, I have redone my living room in what I will loosely call, English Cottage.
Then there is my hair and personal style. Day of the week. Season. Mood. It can change on a dime. Right now I’m in my relaxed phase. I’m comfortable and low maintenance.
And if you are a regular reader of my blogs, you have probably seen me change my theme about a gazillion times. And my pins. And profiles, fonts and featured images.
Why Branding May Not Work For You And Your Blog
I have finally resigned myself to this is who I am and this is what I do. I like change. And why should I stop. It’s my blog and it should reflect who I am. Indecisive and ever-changing.
Are you anything like me? If you are, maybe you should stop trying to jam yourself into one branded image and fly your multi-faced image. Enjoy your diversity. I see too many bloggers branding themselves and coming out like duplicates of each other.
