  4. 4. #BH13Unmarketing INTERNET SSID: BlogHer | No Password Required I am not a brand. I am a voice. - @DresdenPlaid “I talk to people and I tell them my story often. I also want to know other people’s stories and actively seek out ways that our lives overlap to find commonality. I write about my own life and that is so specific. So what makes that interesting to strangers? I need to be relatable to other people. Other people need to find parts of themselves within me. Perhaps they see themselves in me when I write about trying to get pregnant, or when I share about being a single mom, maybe they connect to my stories about caregiving or what it is like to live with my mother.” How I see “branding” gone bad:
  5. 5. #BH13Unmarketing INTERNET SSID: BlogHer | No Password Required Some bloggers struggle with overwhelming need to BRAND themselves. It’s possible to work with companies (and make money) and not change who you are or become a “brand”. It’s possible to revert. Once you go “brand” you CAN come back. A little polish to work with the Wizard is fine, but Dorothy stayed the same. And she didn’t ditch the dog!

  7. 7. “BlogHer is a snake meal of ideas in a wonton wrapper of love. Afterwards you need a 2- day nap, then it nourishes you for a year.” – @debontherocks
