How to Transfer from Personal to Professional Blog?

0

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.
