It was a "thing" back in the day.
And people would say: "Don't blend in with the wallpaper."
Translation: Stand out, get noticed, and be visible.
Don't be a wallflower.
Blending in makes us feel invisible, ordinary, and maybe even dull.
It repels people and opportunities. It happens every day online.
And at conferences. Most people don't seem to mind blending in at industry events.
This week, I saw a few people I know posting pictures of themselves exhibiting at a trade expo.

The various places and signs he told me to look for were super helpful in me finding my way.
