..."There'd better be cupcakes at the finish line!" TM
At last Sunday's race (well...uhm...long run in disguise...) I spotted several runners with the name of their blog on their shirt. Some of them had a more creative approach on branding their blog than others. Needless to say that I only remember the 'creative' ones. And I googled their blog the minute I got home. Apparently branding yourself works.
And while I was googling those blogs and told a friend of mine how I'd found out about those blogs, this is what she said:
But, wasn't it just about running? When did the whole branding yourself thing become an issue?
Uhm, yeah. She's right. It is just about running. She got me thinking, though. My point of view: the branding yourself / your blog thing depends on what you want out of your blog, and on how you look at yourself as a blogger/runner. Do you want to put yourself out there?
You know what: I'll just give it a try. It might get me some new followers to my blog. And I might risk being called 'vain'. What I did is design a shirt to wear at an upcoming race (fingers crossed that I won't get injured again!), and I'll just wait and see what the feedback is going to be. :)

What's your take on runners/bloggers branding themselves?
