Your blog is your personal brand, it's your own corner of cyberspace with which you can express your thoughts, opinions, fears, hopes and dreams. It's also an outlet for you to share what you are passionate about - making you an authority in your own right and this will ultimately help you build your audience. You don't have to be an expert, you don't have to know it all, but your voice is very personal and the way you express it will become your calling card - giving you your online reputation.
Rebecca will be addressing 'blog branding' questions like: How do you get an audience to begin with? How do you keep that audience? How to get noticed by mainstream media (should I even care about mainsteam media) and, why should I have a brand?
