We’re always battling some kind of balancing act – finances versus wants/needs, further education versus joining the workforce, overtime at work versus time with our families.
Sometimes we make the right decisions, sometimes we don’t.
This is just as true with our online personas, and how we portray ourselves in our interaction with others. Whether it’s on Twitter, via our blog, on Facebook or otherwise, what we do and say defines us. Sure, we want to share a bit of ourself and show people we’re worth knowing – that’s only human.
But getting the balance right is a precarious thing.
Broadcast too much and your worth diminishes. Converse too little and you might never find the people you need to share your message with. Getting the mix right is tough; presuming you’ve got it right isn’t a guarantee that you have.
A wise friend once told me, “People bring their autobiography with them to every conversation.”
I guess the trick is in making sure people want to read it.
