Confessions and questions

Some confessions and questions I wanted to put out into the world:

  • I love blogging and I’m afraid I’ll never be good enough to make it something real because I don’t want to miss out on life by spending tons of time on the computer.
    How do you balance your life and the people who surround you with your online tribe and commitments?
  • I hate my writing voice. Okay, hate might be a strong word. But I like to think I’m a pretty friendly, conversational person when you know me – and yet my writing voice could not sound more stilted or stuffy.
    How do you change something about yourself when you don’t know where to begin or how to proceed?
  • I struggle every day to balance my social life with the fact that I am an introvert at heart. It’s a big step for me to admit it anywhere, because I feel like introverts get a bad rap, but it’s true. I am exhausted by overstimulation in social situations and function best when I have more one-on-one conversations and time to process.
    How do you balance what is deemed socially acceptable with what you think is best for yourself?
  • I’m attending the 20 Something Bloggers Summit next weekend and I’m very excited but also very nervous. I won’t know anyone there personally, and don’t devote as much time or energy to blogging as I’m assuming many people there will. The reason I bought a ticket and the reason I’m excited is because I’ve always been interested in blogging and I want to hear some of my favorite bloggers speak. If you’re going, let me know!
    What do you do in a situation where you won’t know anyone and feel like you might be the odd one out?

  1. Thank you for sharing; I’m in a very similar place as you! I clicked on your blog because i saw your post in the 20sb forum. I am brand new to blogging, and I also am now responsible for my company’s blog. I feel like I have so much to learn and this will be a great chance, but I have limited blogging experience even though I love to write! Hope to meet you in Chicago 🙂

    • Hey Nicole, thanks for reaching out! That’s exciting you’re in charge of your company’s blog, what do you do for them? I’ll get at you on Twitter, would love to meet up during the Summit!

  2. I handle their social media, general marketing, PR, etc. I’ll find you on twitter too!

  3. Thank you for sharing this! I feel this way sometimes but I’ve slowly learned how to deal with it. I’ve started automating parts of my life (it’s amazing how much time stuff like automatic bill pay saves you) and not over committing myself.

    Honestly, the best advice I can give you is avoid putting a lot of stuff on your plate at once. Also, patience. No one is going to die if you don’t get EVERYTHING done right away and things like building a great blog take time and a lot of trial and error.

    Have fun at the summit! I wish I was going 🙂
