It's not easy being seen

Have you ever wondered about being a celebrity?

I often ask myself, 'Why would you?'

It would be the loss of simple things I reckon, going to the shops without make up (hmm, not exactly a problem for me) or dropping the kids off at school without a mobbing.

The only thing worse than being a celebrity would be the "reality TV" kind that leaves you with all the exposure but no wealth to secure your lifestyle, or what's left of it.

This got me thinking about those who chase press, the tabloid kind. Not only might you catch the press's attention but also, you might actually become a spectacle. AND if that press attention did not have major money attached, well there goes the lifestyle.

Brain surgeons are not in weekly trash magazines and if they were you would not trust them. Thought Leaders do not chase light entertainment, celebrity press. It's always got to be about the message.

Here are some ways to do that:

* Create a survey and share the findings

* Be interviewed and quoted for substantial articles on point

* Get a syndicated column in a major newspaper or journal

* Or, better still, use the power of technology to become your own TV or radio show.

Just a thought.
