One of the things I have seen as I have surfed the forums is that many models have their own facebook page specifically for their modeling work.  There are other people who seem to have a page devoted to their work which is not their MM page.  Are these things that you would recommend new models have, or do you think they are things that models should build up to?

I have a website for my writing which I have included on my MM page as it is related to me and my interests.  I was thinking of creating a facebook page for my professional aspects as a writer.  I was thinking about adding my modeling work to that page as well (if I make it)

What are your thoughts?

Do you have a website other than MM?

Do you have a professional Facebook page or just a personal Facebook page?

To put it bluntly... don't build an empty website. Build your content first. The content will shape the art direction and design of your site for you.

Shoot the portfolio THEN publish it.

I'm not a model, nor do I currently own a .com, but I probably should do both big_smile

I have a Facebook page for my blog and modelling combined. I find it difficult to seperate different aspects of my life enough as it is!
So I have a facebook just for my personal friends and family; and the other one while the focus is on my blog I use it for aquaintances, acdemic colleagues, modelling/designer/photographer colleagues, fans etc

Then my blog is here:

As a fair bit of my modelling is connected with fashion at the races etc anyway I figure that's ok. But then I even put a bit about my scientific research on as people seem to be interested:

So I think why not re your question. You may be a model; but you are also a write: it's who you are. And if you can bear in mind who may be following your blog so you have something for everyone plus it stops people thinking models are one dimensional and they see we do other things!

Good luck xx
