As I make ready through edits, book trailers, radio spots (in the works), interviews with the alumni magazines, and blogs to promote “The Work,” I was reminded that care must be taken when branding ‘me.’ Me? Who dat? Is it the lady who started all this five years ago, or the one tapping on this keyboard right here, right now? What photo do I use, or should I mix things up when presenting myself on social media? You know, like Dr. Who when he morphs from Christopher Eccelstone to David Tennant. *wink, wink* And what’s the better paint to employ employ: the stuff I brush on courtesy of Ma Ma Maybeline, or the one on my laptop that sandblasts the years away? Lol. I don’t think it matters. Back in mortuary school, I cut off and colored my hair in an effort to look more ‘friendly like’ for apprenticeship interviews. It didn’t make a difference. In the end, it was what I said, how I said it, and who liked it that got me on my way. So here’s looking the way I do. Whatever photo comes along, it’s always going to be me, my words, myself. Happy Friday, everybody.
