Is it a love of craft cocktails? (I miss you Janette.) Do you truly enjoy writing about food and beverage? Add great drink images and/or recipes to your social media! Tag the venue who created the cocktail and even mention the mixologist by name for bonus points.
Do you love unicorns like I do? MENTION IT! You aren't the only one. Tag others in your #UnicornTribe
Did your child create the most ridiculous mess? Take a picture - give it a witty caption and laugh. Post it and let others laugh with you. And if you write on family topics, link to one of your articles.
See, 'Advertising' yourself can be fun and easy. These are all ways to help build your audience (likes, shares, and clients).
Don't worry so much about the 'What ifs?' What if: no one else likes it, I accidentally offend someone, people think I'm weird... All these things will happen. As long as you aren't trying to offend anyone and take responsibility for what you say if there is an offense, no worries. Life goes on.
Move your thoughts to 'Why the heck not!'
The people who get your humor, like your weird, and follow your journey are most likely also the individuals you would most likely want to do business with. Be you! Be authentic! This is your 'You Power.'
No need to hold back, you are carving out your niche market!
