What is my “Personal Brand”

So I was reading an article called “What Belly Dancing Taught Me about Personal Branding” by Lisa Baron @Copyblogger  I found this extremely interesting since I also have been taking belly dancing classes for over six months now. The article was very well written and told about how Lisa’s belly dancing instructor has her own “personal brand”. Being that I had just created this blog and have been wondering what to blog about got me thinking about my own “personal brand”.

I talked with Deb @blissmonger at #ignitedetroit about what I think that my personal brand should be and she suggested to just be myself (upbeat and happy).  I was also talking to @jsingletonphoto about my focus and I had expressed to him how my specific focus would be to educate people about Detroit (from my perspective) as a person who works and lives Downtown. I know there are quite a few excellent blogs already about events, etc in Detroit (in which I hope to have links from my site to). However, mine will be more along the lines of going to events/restaurants/etc and reporting back my experiences good or bad. I would also like to hear from you (my audience) as to what kinds of things you would like to see and I would like to answer any questions that you may have about “The D” in particular. My personal goal is to bring more people downtown (to live, work and/or visit) because Detroit is an excellent place not only because of the great architecture but more importantly because of the great people here. I know a lot of people in social media who have a huge heart for Detroit, if it was not for them then I would have never moved here myself.

Along with what my “personal brand” will be I have also been contemplating how “transparent” that I want to be. I am not 100 percent comfortable with putting my last name out on the internet for everyone to see. However, I am pretty sure that my main audience will know who I am as I do attend a lot of social gatherings. So, I think I will be putting pics of me up, etc but you would more than likely need to know me on a personal leave to have access to more personal information. Please leave me comments or send me an email based on your thoughts, feelings, or personal experiences (whether they be negative or positive).

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
