Transparency in Blogging - Gaining Respect through Vulnerability

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Readers crave a genuine voice.

There is no reason to concoct false fronts or personas, build mental walls, or hide behind a veil of anonymity when you tell your personal stories. Don't write in a way that you think your audience wants to read. Never write to appease your demographic. Write for you, share your life openly and honestly, and you will be amazed at the benefit and respect that can come from transparency and truth in writing.

Adam Heath Avitable, a comedian, personal blogger, and author who blogs publicly, with no anonymity whatsoever, writes openly and honestly about everything from divorce to depression and everything in between, and will use examples and true stories to help you to shed the burden that comes from hiding the truth. As he is a comedian, please be aware that there may be some strong language during the session.
