It is interesting (it’s probably not) I went from being someone who barely uses a Facebook account to creating and maintaining a blog and twitter. Did anyone else see that coming? I certainly did not. I am not someone who has been quick to do anything, especially if it involves the internet. I like to maintain a semblance of privacy and I personally do not feel like I am that interesting. Turns out, I am? That part is still questionable.
I started my blog on a whim six months ago. I did not have a plan or a clear vision. A couple of days later, I thought I would create a twitter account just because I really liked the name of my blog. Back in the day, I avoided Twitter because it was mostly people documenting their every move and I did not want any part of that. Lo and behold, Twitter has become a place for updates on current events, finding a tribe, and learning from other people. I completely recognize that I am the last to know.
TANGENT: When I was in high school, I thought MySpace was a room in the building. Because I did not have friends, I thought to myself “where is this ‘MySpace’ and why is there so much drama?” I hope that gives you an idea of how up on things I can be.
You all have been so supportive; it is so odd to have more support for people I have never met face-to-face than my own “friends”. Honestly, you all probably know me better than people I have been acquainted with for 5+ years. I am still surprised that I have a blog and/or twitter followers. I feel like that sounded braggy and I am not a braggart. I am honestly aghast; as the title suggests, I question my appeal.
I do not have any goals as far as metrics go. If you find me and like me, awesome! If you find me and hate me, keep it to yourself, please!
However, main goals are:
Keep Opening Up. I am becoming more vulnerable in my posts, it is scary, but it is worth it. I do not take a lot of pictures, so I do not have too much to share in that vein. I could give it a shot.
Where the magic happens:
Engage more. I overthink my posts, I also overthink my comments. It can take me 3 hours just to settle on saying thank you. If you say something personal, I love it so much, I do not want to be a distraction from it. I also want to engage more on other people’s sites. If you have a “like” from me, know that I actually read it. Sometimes I want to say “you’re so awesome” but I don’t want to come off as a weirdo. I am one, so it fits (I am rambling!). I adore you!!
Eventually, share my blog with more friends. This one I am not too confident about. I realize my trepidation is that I do not want to answer weird questions or hold long conversations. So we will see if this actually happens.
- How long have you been blogging?
- What are your goals?
- Why do you follow me?! (You don’t have to answer that.)
- Do you have twitter? If I don’t follow you already, I would love to start!
Cheers to six more months!
