My biggest mistake from the past 7-years or so was not building my personal brand on my own blog hard enough, earlier enough. Some may wonder why someone like me who’s been around for a long time blogging (since 2001), only has about 600 rss subscribers. I’ll tell you why… because I never focused blogging and building my brand here on JimKukral.com until recently.
I have been too focused on helping other businesses build their brands, and I was too busy blogging at other places instead of right here. Mistake. Sure, it worked out for me in other ways, but in terms of having my own large audience, I failed.
Don’t make the mistake I made. Build your brand early in one central location and keep it yours, and you can’t go wrong. Be like Problogger.com, be smart, it’s not too late.
