    1. I think I may have already answered this. Did I Melanie?

  9. The only thing I don’t have is my own personalized email. However, with everything I’m signed up to and have my email attached to everything I’m just not sure if it’s worth changing now. =)

    Again, another awesome post created for this weekend!

    1. It is. It provides professionalism across the board. Just forward your other emails to the new one.

  14. This weekend, I’m focusing on one of my 2 blogs. I find this whole “branding” thing REALLY hard with my personal blog, but I’m working on it. For now, focusing on my homeschooling website. Some good tips here.

    What is the purpose of having a personal hashtag when should it be used?

    My elevator pitch:

    The Canadian Homeschooler is focused on sharing Canadian materials, curriculum, products, websites, and resources that are relevant and useful to families across the country in their home education journeys.
    http://www.thecanadianhomeschooler.com

    1. The signature hashtag is just a nice personal touch when using FB or Twitter.

  15. Wow. This has been great! I set up a free email for kelly@kellystilwell.com, though I have not posted it on my site. I’m so used to kastilwell@gmail.com! I’ll work on that. I came up with the hashtag of #VirtuallyYours. As I started as a freelance writer, I was told I should have kellystilwell.com as my domain. I could buy a version of Virtually Yours, but don’t know if I want to do that at this point. Thoughts? I know it is a bit of a problem. My main FB page is Kelly Stilwell. I started Virtually Yours on FB, but with over 10K fans on the first one, I just can’t see giving it up, so that is where my focus goes. My tagline is Mom to Teens. Wife to a Rock Star. I’ve been told I need to add a page about the Rock Star so people will understand. He has played music with some pretty popular bands, and it has always been something I have joked about, so I thought I would use it. I do have a Pinterest Board for him 🙂
    My elevator pitch: Virtually Yours is about family life in the fast lane. You’ll find travel articles, product reviews, giveaways, and a slice of our crazy life in house with teens. Where’s the coffee?
    Looking forward to your feedback!

    1. Love this energy you are giving!
      Signature Hashtag ~ Okay I would like to see your signature be #KellStiwell or #Kastilwell under the cirmcumstances. Virtual Yours is already being used by too many people.

      FB ~ Now regarding the FB fan page do not change a thing. Just ask people to embrace your other FB page via staus updates on the Kelly Stilwell. Ex: Hey ~ Please like my additional FB Virtual Yours where I share _____. Regarding your tagline I love it however not sure how it truely ties in with your blog. Let me think on this one.

      Elevator Pitch ~ Virtually Yours is a jazzy outlook on life in the fast lane & family! We share aspects of travel, product reviews, giveaways & a slice of our crazy life with teens. Welcome to our lane.

  16. 1. Already had one.

    2. I do now.

    3. I have a tagline that I have used for a couple of years now, but no logo. Not sure I need one for my blog, but might need one for my Etsy store once I get it going.

    4. Never though about my own hashtag. Do you have to find out if it’s in use? And where all would you use it?

    5. I’m either Audra Silva, audramsilva or sassystyle for the most part.

    6. “Sometimes quirky, sometimes serious, always real.” I write about faith, marriage, family, home education, creativity, photography, writing, beauty, fitness, music–pretty much everything I love about this amazing life God has given me. I write about good times. I share about hard times. Because life is full of joy and sorrow. Peace and chaos. Beauty and ugliness. I write life.

  17. “I am Meg And So Can You” follows me, Meg as I work on my “30 Before 30” list. I challenge myself to learn and discover new things about myself as I approach this milestone in my own life. I also hope to be in my best shape ever so I can enter 30 fit and fabulous!

  18. Hmm, my comment is gone. 🙁 boo.

    Here’s my elevator pitch:

    The Canadian Homeschooler is focused on sharing Canadian materials, curriculum, products, websites, etc. that are relevant and useful to families across the country in their home education journeys.

    1. Love it! I would change that to which though. 😉

  19. Mommies POV The Voice of the People through Reviews and Giveaways.

    I do not have a personal hashtag but will work on getting one as I am not sure how to make them.
    I will set a new email up this week though.
    Now on all the sites I was MommiesPointofView as I started on blogger but have moved to wordpress and I am now MommiesPOV.com and I am not sure if I can change the names on Twitter where I am MomsReviews or Facebook but I did on all the other sites including Facebook.

    1. Okay, let’s talk about this.

      For your elevator pitch I came up with ~ Mommies POV is THE Voice of Motherhood and shared via Reviews, Giveaways, Experience and Knowledge!

      Hashtag ~ #MommiesPOV

      Has the new email been established yet? 🙂

      Yes, you can change the name on Twitter and keep your same following. Let me know if you need assistance with this. Just make sure to inform your audience a few times via post and tweets.

  21. “Geek with Style is Aeryn Lynne’s playground to discuss her favourite topics with her like-minded audience, such as: consumer/lifestyle technology, plus size fashion & beauty, and events that happen both online and around Toronto, ON.”

    I’ve never thought about creating my own hashtag before… wouldn’t know when I’d need to use one, but I guess it would be #GeekWithStyle

    1. Hi Aeryn ~ Yes, I would agree that your signature hashtag should be #GeekWithStyle. I would use this every time I could. Ex: Twitter post, Facebook post etc…

  23. […] Branding Basics @ Keystrokes by […]

  24. Thanks for the tips and the mini challenge! My mini challenge is complete:

    1. ATableForOne.net (saving to buy the .com)

    2. WebDiva@(mydomain name dot com)

    3. Logo done, “The bastard child of Anthony Bourdain and Bridget Jones”

    4. #ATableForOne

    5. Separate Twitter, FB pages and Google+ pages, but they need work!

    6. I’m a single woman traveling — and living — solo. It occurred to me there are a million “mommy blogs,” but very few blogs for single women who aren’t sitting at home waiting for Prince Charming or watching their biological clock. Consider this the “non-mommy” blog.

    1. Hi Diana ~ Google 99 cents domain name from Go Daddy. You can purchase up to three. Where may I see your logo(s)?

      1. I’m afraid my .com has been bought and is selling for $350. I’ve tried making an offer but they aren’t budging. And unfortunately, I’m pretty set on my title and concept.

        My logo is on my site, http://www.atableforone.net

        1. Question ~ Have you ever owned that .com before?

          1. Unfortunately, no. And I went to check on it and it looks like it may have been sold.

            But, in the spirit of making lemonade out of lemons, I did find atableforoneplease.com was available. I’d rather have the original, but it looks like it will have to do. I’ve already changed the header/logo on my .net site, my Twitter and FB names, and I’m asking for hostgator to help me transfer not only content/posts but the whole design over to the new domain so it doesn’t become a week long project redoing it from scratch.

            I tell myself that by adding the please (and an exclamation point) it implies a little more enthusiasm for being solo — my inspiration for the theme is an article talking about a ridiculous service for women to find other women to dine out with to save them the “embarrassment” of being alone. Because being on your own is a fate worse than death, apparently. Funny, I missed that memo. 😉

          2. You & I both! Lol… I dine & go to the movies alone often. Where was that article?

          3. This WILL be discussed in my about page… once I make one!
