Be careful choosing your visibility levels
When you decide you are going to start any kind of internet-based business whether it is a website, a blog or a shop you will have other questions you will need to answer.
One of those questions is about visibility, how visible do you want to be on the internet. This is especially important when writing a blog.
You have to decide how much of yourself do you want people to see? how much do you want people to know? You may reduce your visibility If you are quite shy.
You may not want people knowing everything about you or you might not want to go to events and network with other bloggers. If this is the case then it is fine, however, if you don’t mind being in the spotlight then you could be at home putting your world out on the internet for all to see.
Visibility or No Visibility
Just remember that once you put something on the internet it is there FOREVER! You may take it down but you never know if it has already been copied and/or reposted somewhere else and you never know when it will resurface.
So whatever you choose to do remember there are no do-overs. Another thing to remember is you will not be everyone’s cup of tea. You will get people who love what you do or what you sell or what you write but you will get haters too.
Be prepared to deal with all of these visibility issues before you publish that very first web page or blog post.
Thanks for reading.
Don’t forget, be careful out there on the internet.
It can be a weird or wonderful place.
Blogging Rule 16 tomorrow.
