One of my New Year's resolutions was to be more purposeful in developing my personal brand. I wrote about this subject in my January column in the San Antonio Express-News.
I have been following the sage advise of Personal Brand Master, Dan Schwabel
, along these lines.
Aside from being present and actives on my blogs and on sites like Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube, etc. I've also tried to be more present on BlogCatalog, which is what this post is really about.
In looking at how to mash up, and best represent myself on the Social Web, I recently bought alanweinkrantz.tel
which is the new domain for that purpose.
While I really like the .tel concept, it does limit me in terms of graphically representing my brand. If you look at my profile on BlogCatalog
, you can see what not only my presence, but a graphically pleasing mash up of my activity on Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, etc.
If you are developing your own personal branding strategies, BlogCatalog should be part of your mix. There is more to this site than just the blogosphere.
Disclosure: I have done consulting work for BlogCatalog in the past, but they are currently not an active client.
