Because I'm traveling today, I have limited time for blogging. I can, however, post a link to an amusing article from The Onion that reminds me of the frequent advice writers receive to build and maintain our personal brand, even before we are published. As is often the case in The Onion, the article is funny and a little too accurate for comfort.
If, somehow, you are not familiar with The Onion, be advised that, although this article does not contain profanity, others on the site do, so you might accidentally run across a strong word somewhere on the page. But I still recommend checking out this article.
