Dear Experts, I'm currently transitioning my blog from being geared toward my personal life to more professional (public relations) content - any suggestions? Should I wait until I have several posts before publicizing it? Should I keep my personal life (pictures, etc.) on a completely different blog? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: @AndyInNaples Q#188 Great idea! Write/assemble 4-5 articles before launching the Blog. Write 1/week. Integrate into Twitter. @gradversity Q#188 I'd publish it right away. Real traffic takes time. As for the personal stuff, I'd keep it on a separate blog. @sweetcareers Q#188 Keep personal info on diff blog. Try 2 build up abt 10 posts b4 publicizing. RSS pro blog 2 twittr. @louise_fletcher Q#188 2 different blogs because the PR audience won't want the personal stuff. Build up content and then publicize @beneubanks Q#188 Feel free to contact me on this. Lots of angles 2 explore. I say diff blogs, multiple posts b4 publicizing. @jtodonnell Q#188 Wait until you have 5+ professional posts, pull off the personal stuff too. Keep photos private on FB. @ValueIntoWords Q#188 Refocusing blog w/several PR-focused posts good; then publish segue post to reinforce the new tone. @DebraWheatman Q#188 Start posting your PR content as u write it to establish the new tone. Keep personal things on separate blog if u want. Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.

Even in the age of home video conferencing, it’s still very natural to feel like you’d rather do ANYTHING other than turn on that camera, take a deep breath, and feel everyone’s eyes on you…watching.

Ever wonder how actors push through stage fright?
