For those of you who don't know, I work as a Web producer. It's a newer type of journalist -- though my company has had Web producers for more than a decade, other companies are just now hiring folks like us to oversee all content aspects of a website -- news-related or otherwise.
And it's sort of strange -- because I work online for a living, I have developed 2 online personas -- the work, and the personal. But lately I've been thinking about that. I'm considering letting the two worlds collide.
Basically, what I am thinking is of buying a domain name (I have one in mind) and running that site on Wordpress or Typepad Pro -- I have accounts with both.
Then, I would use that site to link up to this blog -- which I don't wish to move from Blogger -- as well as to my online professional work and all my social media accounts. It would be a one-stop shop for everything Southern Web Girl.
Because I don't have anything to hide, and because I work as a Web producer, I think it would behoove me to brand myself appropriately, to show that I can work on multiple CMS, manage several social media accounts, and have fun while I'm at it.
I think the only negative to this is that I might worry about people knowing too much about me. It also means that all of you would know where I work, and that those I work with professionally would have access to this blog if they wanted. But I'm sure that right now, you could probably connect all the dots with a few clicks of the mouse anyway.
So, thoughts? And if you prefer Wordpress vs. Typepad Pro, I would love to hear thoughts on that as well.
