What does branding you mean?
Using your name attached to a blog or website which is about your business or hobbies interests.
How do you use your name?
You need to get a domain name which has your name in it
To illustrate this I’ll use my own name (which is dave hayes) to show what I mean
The post you are reading is on my http://davebhayes.com domain
I also have a personal blog on http://dave-hayes.com
What if your name is popular or has been taken?
In that case you can either prefix it with something like I am yourname, whoisyouname, yournameonline
Or…if you have a middle or a nickname then you can use that as the domain
An example of thag is shown above with my domain name davebhayes (the b is the first initial of a family nickname and… no it is not ba****d!
The last suggestion is inserting a hyphen intk your name, as shown above with http://dave-hayes.com
So when someone asks to know more about you, simply pass them your blog and explain that they can find out more about you by the section on the website which has hat information.
People are far more likely to relate to you personally than a ‘corporate’ name.
So that is what branding you means
