Self Promotional Failure
One thing I’m not good at, though, is self promotion.
Whenever I sit down to write my page, it winds up sounding too much like a boring, resume-ish listing of web technologies:
See? I’ll bet half of you are asleep (WAKE UP!!!) and the other half are confused about what some of those strings mean. You can no clue the cool things I can do when I put my knowledge to work.
I’ve been looking around for some examples of pages other people set up to advertise their services for hire. Not just web coding, but speaking, social media promotion, and the like. My conclusion: There are some people out there who are really good at self promotion. Maybe I can hire one of them to write the copy for my page. Will trade promotional copy for web work!
However tough this is, I’m going to spend some time working on a "hire me for freelance gigs" page. Look for it coming (hopefully) soon.
How are you when it comes to self promotion?
