I assume that we all basically want the same thing out of our blogging efforts here at Active Rain right? We want to reach more people and learn from those in the trenches with us and at the end of the day, maybe just maybe we will see our hard work rewarded with dare I say a phone call or two that leads to some business. You are not alone. In fact that are tons of writers here blistering their keyboards for the chance to meet their next client or catch their next referral. This leads directly to the point of my post. Are you sure to be yourself in the process?
You see it's very easy to seem one way or the other while you have ample time to write, rewrite, edit, ponder, and draft before you hit the publish button. So you can always pretend that you are the life of the party with jokes you find on Google or that you are always down to business with no time to waste laughing it up.
But what if you get what you want and your phone rings? What if you manage to meet a new prospect through your efforts. You want be able to change or hide who you are in person.
So do yourself a huge favor and just be yourself from the start. If you're the goofball that likes a good pun, get in there and show off your word skills. Or, if you're super intense, go ahead and do your thing. You see there are all kinds of people in this world and that's why there are all kinds of Realtors.
Inevitably not everyone will like you or what you have to say, but some people will. So go ahead and say it your way so people know exactly who they're getting when they decide to get in touch with you.
