I have something to say, and I am not sure how to say it without sounding grumpy.
Obviously, I have a brand. There…right there, next to my round head. But sometimes, I also feel hemmed in or limited by my brand. I am more than just a Daring Librarian. I’m a Redhead, a Geek, a Marylander, a daughter, a friend, a snarky smart a$$, many things. But this has got me thinking to beyond brand.
But when I think about branding as far as my profession or education goes, I also equate it to my digital footprint, our prof & school reputation, our Mission Statement & our calling to education. I don’t monetize my brand on my blog, I don’t sell advert space, or blog for the companies that write me asking to get publicity. I can’t be bought. I can be rented — to speak to groups about various topics (that started to sound just wrong!) and I worried that both my brand and my gender worked against me on that small EdTech “keynote speaker” circuit.
But if I remember that I’m not a brand but a person — I can’t be limited by it — much like you’re not limited to which pencil you hold in your hand. My fav though def, the Warrior! Thank you for this well-written and thought provoking piece!
