I just did something even more drastic than my blog makeover: I changed my blog url. I really, really, really hope it doesn't mess everything up and make me lose all my followers. If so, I'm sorry!
The reason I decided to change my blog's url is because I've been reading a lot lately about branding. No, I'm not talking about cows in Texas. (I just know someone will leave me a note saying you don't brand cows or something, but you know what I mean!) "They" strongly suggest that if you're is going to cultivate a strong web presence, which is what I'm trying to do, you should choose a single name and/or image and stick with it. That way, everyone who knows you from one venue will be able to find you elsewhere or be recognize you when they stumble across other online activities in which you're involved. That makes sense to me, but it's harder to implement when I've had my finger in so many different pies and kind of piece-mealed my online activities.
Anyway, if you have more experience than I do in this whole viral campaigning thing, please let me know if I just committed a major gaffe! But it might be too late. Oops.
