Bitter Tweet8:59 PM
With the growth of my blog I have been exposed to a lot of social networks, some of which I have joined in order to network with industry professionals as well as grow and strengthen my personal brand; the others are strictly personal. But the problem is knowing when to make which what. What?? Exactly so here is my break down:
Networks such as the Fashion Industry Network and Independent Fashion Bloggers are tools that I use specifically for my blog and growing the No Fear, Just DIVA brand.
FIN allows its members to set up a personal page with their contact information, website, and photos of their work. Through this site I meet all sorts of people from jewelery makers to PR professionals and I restrict my conversations to my blog and desired career moves.

IFB is one of the best network for bloggers, I love the articles! They keep me fresh and in constant review of how I am branding myself and my blog. One of my favorite articles is Branding Basics for Your Lovely Blog I have read it like three times! There are rules to joining, but it's totally worth it, guest blogging and the Weekly Round Up are great ways to get your brand out to a wider audience.
- How Twitter Can Make You a Better (and Happier) Person, Penned by Zappos CEO Tony H., this article made me rethink what exactly I was doing on the site and how to better Tweet according to my personal branding goals.
- How Twitter Can Help at Work, New York Times article that gives tips on issues like handling customer service and sharing ideas via Tweets and direct message. The best piece of advice from this article: "Ignore the 'What are you doing?' prompt" Trust me that can go from professional to TMI in a heartbeat!
Alright Travelers, it's getting pretty late and this is getting pretty long. Once again thank you for your support and it's great to be back!
One Step Forward, Just Glance Back. No Fear, Just DIVA!
