Wear your label proudly

Who owns what? Click here to discover product brands.

Branding is important. When you have a blog presence you want people to recognize you. You want to stand out from the crowd with a lable that rocks.

What does your brand say about you? Sassy, snarky, informative, funny, witty, dependable, service provider ... ?

My mom was easily fooled into brand loyalty. Her sensitive stomach could only handle certain brands of  coffee, tea and food products. If she asked if the tea was Lipton instead of Nestea, I smiled and nodded. She drank one thinking it was the other and never knew the difference. But if she knew, she refused or complained about how it affected her.

What's your brand?

Thanks to Kim at http://ratiooffailures.blogspot.com/ for the brand site.

Great point, Linda. Too little brand loyalty can be a bad thing, too. Some of us are all over the place! I like how you linked this to writing.

Interesting question, Linda. I have always had trouble defining myself...I never fit any one label! Seem to be doomed to this for life....

My great aunt would not drink the milk at her niece's house because it came from their goats, not cows. But, if the milk came from the ice box a glass bottle from a known dairy she drank it without question.

Branding my writing ....... sarcastic?

No mistaking my brand. It's as obvious as the springtime seared flesh on last summer's calf crop.

Still thinking about it. Sometimes I think; it's easier to see a 'brand' in others that yourself. I have a friend who is the best hostess you've ever met, but she doesn't realize this is her gift! So Linda, your 'brand' is definitely humor...a little Erma B mixed in with a dash of Lucy; but all your own! If you know what mine is...let me know...

Hi Linda....Oh my gosh. What's my brand? Hmmmmm. I'll have to go with "writing from the heart." Sincerity. Human interest. Is that too many brands? hee hee Susan

My brand? Sometimes snarky? Sometimes pointed? And sometimes a mishmash...
