Is this Bragging or Promoting

Is this Bragging or Promoting? It is difficult to write up my own bio - I feel silly - like bragging as a child when my mother said it was a "no-no." I wrote my first long bio.  I have been involved in many creative areas. If I thought I had a chance I entered/submitted a foot in the door and sometimes it was only a toe. Sometimes I was paid and some not. Everything I tried I learned from that experience.  At workshops, retreats and conferences, they stress you must promote yourself - get your name out there.

If you allow people to make more withdrawls than deposits in your life, you will be out of balance in the negative. Know when to close the account - Christie Williams.

What a great quote and words to live by.

I don't believe that promoting your talents is bragging as long as it is done so in a professional way. Always remember to use your best judgement. You should be proud of your achievements.

This is the second time Missy has left a comment and Donna has one. I have tried over and over to have them okayed and published, but I have been unable to since Blogger has changed their format. I am not happy and I don't know what to do.
