Exposure is not exposure is not exposure, if you ask me.
While it’s thrilling (and career-advancing) to be featured by major media outlets, it’s usually the case that your message gets distilled at the very best, and twisted at the worst, in order to fit the parameters of the story being produced.
Mostly, you end up feeling like you presented the smallest nugget of what your work is all about. A nugget is a nugget, mind you, but it isn’t quite the whole pie. (Pretend those work together.)
So when a TV producer sends you an email asking you if you’re interested in talking about the benefits of living simply (and you’re me) it feels like a gift and a really big deal. One worth throwing up on the ole blog.
