Blogger or Brand?: Extending Your Online Identity
My name is my brand. When I started my blog here I had no real direction and I just put in my name. My subjects are still fairly varied and random. I can’t think of a better identity, name or brand. At least it is uniquely mine. Does the name of my blog work for you? Any ideas you can share?
