Right now I should be promoting Brand Me (there! i did it) but to be completely honest, I'm extremely reticent at pushing myself forward. I am OK with appealing to readers who stumble on my blog posts, and OK about tooting them out randomly on my twitter feed ... but mass emailing and plugging every Facebook group I belong to? I just can't bring myself to push 'me'. And I haven't mentioned it much outside my online life either.
|who am i?|
Although I'm not a complete social media hermit, and no no-friends nellie, pushing this particular Brand Me means opening up my sordid internet life to people who are completely unaware of it ... and even with a few votes at stake, I'd like it to stay that way.
|is this me?|
Part of my reluctance is defining Brand Me in the first place. My blog defines me as a ranting midlifer with obvious depressive tendencies and domestic woes, but is that all there is to 'me'?
|hiding from ...?|
|or is this me?|
I'm a daughter, a big sister, a wife, a mother to a son. I'm also a mature mum, an ex-scientist/ex-veterinary surgeon, a trailing spouse who gave up her career to emigrate with her husband, a volunteer, a mixed media artist, a writer or at least a writer-in-training ... does this mix make me 'me' or should I choose one track and stick to it?
I'm not ready to decide just yet but once I know what Brand Me is I'll start the promotion stuff; until then, you're welcome to stick along for the ride.
