We all have our “cheat sheet.” We know it when we see it. If you’re reading this from your phone, it’s probably been there for a while. Our personal blogs are our cheat sheets.
This is one of those things that makes me think twice about what we write. Sure, it’s a great way to make a point or get someone’s attention, but it can be a tad misleading.
That being said, sometimes a personal blog can be a great means to build your personal brand and brand recognition. The thing to consider is that if youre writing about yourself, your blog will start to look like youre trying to get the attention of your audience. By contrast, if you write about something that youre not passionate about, then you might not find your blog helpful. So be mindful of what you write.
There are two reasons that people use personal blogs to build their brand. The first is that they can be a great way to get someones attention. The second reason is that they can help them gain someones trust. That being said, both can be a good thing.
The first reason is the good one, you can build up your brand by being transparent about your interests. It helps people know that you are not just making up stuff. It can also be a good way to build your credibility. If you decide that you are going to write a blog about a certain subject, you can take the time to make sure you write about it in a way that is relevant to your audience.
The second reason is that having a blog can help people in the long term. You can give people an insight into you and your life, if you choose to. You can also help them with their online reputation – they can see that you are honest and trustworthy.
We were just on the phone with a guy who had a blog about his dog. He wanted to get his dog tattooed on his arm. He said he could get someone to do it for him, but we didn’t have the resources to pay for it.
Well, for some people it’s not about money. For a lot of people it is. It’s not about finding someone who can do it for cheap. It is about finding someone who is a lot more trustworthy than you.
The problem is that if you’re trying to get people to trust you, you might not be doing yourself justice. As soon as anyone tries to do you a favor, or you do them a favor, you become a person you do not want to be.
So, how do you get people to trust you? We are in the business of helping people, and we have to do it in a way that they are willing to trust us. We can’t do this by relying on their trust, because we would be making ourselves vulnerable to unscrupulous people who would misuse the trust in order to get what they want.
