Community Roundup Week Ending December 1

Personal Branding in WordPress

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how one develops a personal brand in the WordPress community and why it matters. As well as how it applies to community.

  • I have no plans to ever go back to freelancing, and yet it still matters.
  • I’m employed full-time, and yet it still matters.
  • I’m not job searching, and yet it still matters.

Think of your personal brand as your reputation in the community. Personal branding can help establish you as knowledgeable, trustworthy, and competent. It can help you form connections in the community, find speaking engagements, and even help you get on podcasts and guest blogs. And how you do that through social media, building your bio, and more matters.

My goal is to develop a talk (and maybe a future course) on building your personal brand. I hope you’ll tune in and find it useful.
