Wow! I received a very nice email back in September from a gentleman at Voyage Chicago. He asked to interview me for the inspiring stories in their downtown section. I’m normally pretty private but it was such a nice email that I decided to do it. Let me tell you that it’s really hard to describe yourself. I can talk about SEO all day but “ME” not so much.
Today I received a bittersweet email from that same gentleman. The article was up. WELL… if writing about yourself is difficult… then reading about yourself is even more difficult. It’s one thing to put up an “about me” page on a website you control, quite another when it is on website you don’t control. & once it’s out there on the Internet, whelp it’s forever kinda like Herpes and Diamonds. It could be a bad thing or a good thing, me I’m hoping for the good way (Diamonds are ALWAYS a good thing). I now totally understand why celebrities choose not to read articles about themselves.
I am on the editorial team of the Chicago Voyager Magazine. We write about the hidden gems of Chicago and the surrounding areas – from the best restaurants to the best gyms, salons, photographers etc.
We’re working on a series of articles featuring interviews with Chicago’s most inspiring entrepreneurs and independent businesses and we’d like to feature you.
There is no cost involved – but we’ll need to interview either the owner/founder or one of the key team members. Please let me know if you are interested in being featured.
