Blogging 201: Audit Your Brand

Today’s assignment:

Audit your brand — look at all the ways you communicate information about your blog to make sure they’re consistent and focused.

I figured I’d use this opportunity to promote my LinkedIn, which I started a few days ago. Connect with me if you have an account. And if you don’t, start one so we can connect.

Did you notice the subtle but not so subtle change I made?

It’s easier on the eyes.

I hope.

Blogging 101: Extend Your Brand

Extend your brand with one of the following: a custom Blavatar, a custom image widget, or a fan page.

Brand?

Ehhhhhhhk. That word haunts me.

I finally fixed my Blavatar. (Read: I learned how to upload the newer head-shot I’ve been using for months as my blog picture.) You learn something new everyday.

But I can’t create a custom image to save my life. I’d pay someone to but I’m broke. And I’m about to be even more broke. Perks of going to university this coming September.

Um, uh..I have a failing Facebook page. Once again I’m broke. I’m a full-time student. I’m someone who procrastinates. A lot. If I ever become a full-time blogger, I’ll pay more attention to my other social media accounts. Until then I can blame homework to finish, projects to complete, and deadlines to meet. As well as tests and exams I always cram for because I hate studying.

Brand still haunts me.

From the bottom of my heart, I hope everyone is doing a better job extending their brand.
