Sorry folks there’s no dove of peace here. Today we’re going to explore the dark side of celebifying yourself. Before we get into the downside of increasing your visibility, let’s talk about how things have changed technologically.
The Transformation to the Digital World
The very young didn’t experience the changeover to digital. Those of us who are older, did. And look at what has happened. Most of us are carrying mobile phones and some of us are big users of all that social media has to offer.
Point and Shoot…Yourself
An important component of why people go social is because of the selfie. Due to the fact that selfies exist and are easy to create, many individuals are being sucked into the vortex of celebify. In this instance to celebify one’s self.
Two Tales, How do They Differ?
And then there’s the story which that person develops and puts out there all that they are. Living the dream, or at least wanting it to be perceived that way. The social media story versus the real story.
Now the Next Step
One can only guess about the reality of a self aggrandizing individual. But many of them could be on their way for an uncomfortable experience to say the least.
The Rise of the Monster in Human Form
We’re talking about cyber stalkers. Who knows what motivates them. Often, they themselves don’t even know why they are driven to do what they do to others. The goals is to humiliate and terrorize the individual. The more celebified you become, the more you become a target. This is the dark side. Are you celebifying yourself? Are you ready for what comes with it?

Whether or not you “celebify yourself” can be an important question to answer. It can mean the difference between you getting new customers or not getting new customers. And if you DO choose to celebify, the manner in which you do so may need to tread a fine line.
Celebify Yourself with a Blog
That’s part of the reason why we created the website Celebify.com. It’s a site that has been around for several years but only recently became a blog. In fact, speaking of blogs, having your own blog can be a great way to celebify yourself, that is if you want to celebify yourself.
HTML Becomes WordPress
Case in point we recently migrated our alliance of 27 html websites to WordPress Blogs featuring guest bloggers and interviewees on topics such as how to get new customers. We are also providers of web designing, digital marketing and blogging services. So it’s safe to say we err on the side of “to celebify.”
Can You Be Too Self Promotional?
What are the reasons “to NOT celebify?” Some reasons are given in the “About” section of Celebify.com. You see, not everyone agrees that to celebify is a good thing. There are those who look down on it. In other words they dislike the proverbial “being too self promotional.”
The Secret to How You Celebify
But the good news is that there is a secret to how you celebify, if you choose to celebify. As can be seen with the powers that be, it seems that the best way to celebify yourself is to make it clear that there is something in it for the audience that is beholden to your choice to celebify.
The Importance of Providing a Solution
If you must celebify then explain to your target demographic how you are providing a solution for them. It could be that you are offering them an entertaining experience (such as a movie to save them from boredom) or even a business problem solved – such as showing them how to get more customers.
Is Success Relative?
How nice it would be to just be accepted for who you are with every human being finding acceptance in this way. Unfortunately the expression “if you don’t tell them, they don’t know” holds true much of the time as a tool for “success,” with success being a relative concept.
How to Celebify to Maintain Your Fame
That’s why many celebrities are quick to celebify themselves every chance they get. They have to continually inform the masses that they are celebrities and reassert this status based on their latest project. In America we live in a celebrity obsessed culture. And many citizens now even mimic celebrities and regularly celebify themselves with selfies on social media. This topic is deconstructed in more detail in the “About” section of Celebify.com.
One of the Downsides of Being Well Known
Interestingly enough, on the flip side some people are actually less interested in folks who celebify themselves. There are those who make it a big point to look down on individuals who celebify their lives. Though, the irony sometimes with those who decide to celebify themselves to the extreme is that these very same people who couldn’t seem to get enough fame, then lament that they can’t live their life without the press bothering them.
To Celebify or Not to Celebify?
It would be great if we all could just be nice to each other regardless of whether we are “pro celebify” or “con celebify.” In the final analysis the team of Celebify.com believes that it is critical to realize that you have a choice. And yes, if you choose to celebify yourself it does come with certain headaches. But to NOT celebify has its issues too. In the end it’s really up to you in terms of what you gain or lose if you do/don’t celebify. So, will you celebify?
A question we get asked sometimes is “Can I celebify my business without having to celebify my life?” Yes. This is possible. But as the amount of online businesses skyrocket it is getting harder and harder to not “put a face” to the business. The logic is that if you put yourself out there as the representative of your business people are more apt to trust becoming a customer. People trust people. But wonder if you don’t want to celebify your life? One option is to get a mascot or spokesperson for your product or service. This takes the emphasis off of you. How about if you are a person who has a business and wants to celebify both your business and yourself? Welcome, you are right on time.
