Then there is this side of me that is a shy, introvert, an old soul. I don't want to share, I want to keep private things to myself, and I worry way too much about what others think (thank goodness I married R who doesn't care what anybody thinks).
I even feel sometimes that I don't fit in with my own age group.
As the world of blogging has taken off, with giveaways and a lot of shameless self promotion,
I have felt excluded from this extroverted group at times.
Or are y'all introverts too and that's why we all enjoy blogging so much?!
I have friends who started Facebook pages for their blogs. They have Twitter feeds, Vine videos, and host group web chats. They host giveaways and publicly display their children and share deeply personal stories. They just put it all out there, leaving nothing!
The fun part of me wants to do that, the shy side absolutely does not and is terrified of a judgemental world.
Now that almost everybody is using some form of social media, people don't always know how to correctly use it. I've seen many things posted publicly on Facebook, that were not intentional, but users are not educated on their programs enough to know what they are doing. Feelings get hurt and they get hurt fast! Technology is changing quickly, those who don't read up on it or use it daily could be left behind.
Blogging makes me step out of my comfort zone... often.
When I'm so caught up in what others might say, it's a lot harder to put myself out there. Y'all have said the nicest things about Sunny, Milo, R, and I. In fact I don't know if I've ever had a negative comment, I guess those people have kept those to themselves while rolling their eyes during my posts!
I have many amazing things to share in this blogging world.
Book reviews, Pinterest recipe reviews, thoughts on faith and trials, family stories, and vacations.
I have amazing things I could create too!
Photography, fun ecards, inspiring graphic quotes, and other things I just can't think of right now...
Have I shared as much as my shy side will allow?
Is there more I could do to really get this blog hip with the times (please say you laughed at that)???
Yep, I just have to muster up the courage!!
