I ran into this article on PR Daily which compares Disney princesses to the life of someone in PR.
While I’ve never been in PR circles, I have two girls and know the Disney Princess world well.
I couldn’t help but think about this in terms of blogging, so I just have to ask: which blogging princess are you?

Ariel – You’re ready for your blogging legs and want to be part of the blogging world. Everything is whozits and whatzits and widgets–they’re all confusing and exciting at the same time.
I wanna be where the people are
I wanna write
Wanna write those blog posts
Posting around on those
[What do you call ’em? oh, blogs!]
Oh wow, I’m so tempted to rewrite that whole song—come on, bloggers, one of you should totally do it.
Jasmine – It’s a whole new world! You’re on your carpet and up, up and away! You’re in love with your newfound hobby of blogging and you couldn’t be happier. Someone could put a whole kingdom at your feet but all you want is time with your blog.
Belle – You’re not Belle unless you love books and it shows in your writing. Belle isn’t swayed by whatever or whomever is popular in the blog world. You don’t mind standing up for what you believe in and see people for who they really are. You could care less if your blog ever gets popular–your fairytale is spending time with words and authentic people.
Rapunzel – You’re creating, creating, creating in your bloggy tower. You have your hair thrown down and are waiting for others to climb up and find you. You look out your tower window at night and dream of the days people will find you and you get your fairytale.
Cinderella – You’ve got cinders on your clothes from all the years of hard work. You’ve put up with naysayers along the way. But, it’s all paid off because you have your fairytale–you’ve found readers who like you for who you are and hope to spend the rest of their lives reading your words.
Sleeping Beauty – You’ve got a blog but sometimes you forget you do! You let it sleep for months at a time but you have hopes one day you’ll really wake up to your fairytale blogging life.
Merida– You’re not scared to let your hair down and take care of business like the big dogs. Forget the cutesy header and sidebars. You have a site, not a blog. You write articles, not blog posts. Watch out world, she’s a writer!
Tiana – You work hard for your dream to have your blog as a business. You attend lots of conferences and webinars and “affiliate marketing” should be your middle name.
Mulan – Watch out! You have WordPress and you know how to use it. You’re the techy geek with all the blogging tools in your back pocket. Your friends know to go to you for the how-to.
Snow White – You’re fairest of them all. You have quite the devoted following but that’s because you know how to work well with others and treat people with respect.
OK, what blogging princess am I missing and how would you describe her?
I tend to think I’m a bit of a Belle, Cinderella and Rapunzel. Oh, and maybe Mulan. I just read this list to Emma and Lexi and they said I was definitely Belle and Mulan and definitely not Sleeping Beauty. Well!
I suspect many of us are a mix but with which do you identify most?
See? How much fun was that?? Share it with your blogging friends, Disney lovers and your daughters—I think they’ll love it too.
