Self-Branding efforts wouldn't be complete unless you bother to get your own website.
www.Charmbaker.com launching soon!
Owning a website has always seemed like an inconvenience to me in the past, although I knew it was important to your online presence. Website activities seem to have a way of taking over your life, in a similar way that blogging can do if you're not careful. To some online workers, this is actually a good thing, but to working writers and aspiring authors, this could pose a problem. But whether having your own website is an inconvenience or a godsend, the fact still remains that you need to have one. In the long run, and further along in your online career, a website can be an invaluable resource to you.
I wrote a recent post called: Self-Branding: When Will YOU Finally Start? In it, I discuss the reasons why it is necessary to finally take the step to brand yourself (or your online presence). I purposely omitted any details concerning the need for a website. In truth, in many ways, you really don't actually need a website, depending on what your web activities and objectives happen to be. But the advantages of having a website far out weighs any perceived disadvantages.
The Just Charm website is scheduled to launch this Saturday (2/13/16) and you can visit it by going to: http://charmbaker.com anytime after 12 midnight. More upcoming posts will discuss the advantages of haing a website, particularly when it comes to your online writing and related activities.
