Sometimes, Self Praise Stinks
Day Seven of 30 Day Blogging Challenge

Talk Tuesday!

How important is self-promotion, and where does it draw the line between being informative and becoming "too much of one person" for you to handle?


I think it depends on the circumstances. Online, like on Facebook or even here, self promotion is okay. Any one can keep scrolling past when it becomes annoying. Where it is a problem is at work or in committees and work groups. In these situations the self-praise turns from innocent self praise to self righteous brown nosing. There are a couple people guilty of this at my job and in a committee I just left. They make it very difficult on the others who work with them. I find it very difficult to work with people who are constantly praising themselves because they usually will drag those around them down to make themselves look good.
