10 Responses to “Scary Social Networking”

  1. O.K. I won’t use your name here.

    Just to say, the short while I have been looking at your Blog – and this is very brief compared to all the wonderful content here – what I get is that you are an AMAZING and TALENTED person and think you should “put it out” what ever way you feel like and know that it helps others.

    I have a lot of questions to ask regarding all the tech stuff of this Blog but am too busy just trying to catch up to organize all those thoughts at this moment. Hopefully, I’ll get to it all.

    Thanks for all your good stuff. – Adele

    Thank you Adele, I seem to be making way more posts than I planned on. All that reading everywhere I find the best stuff 😉

    Feel free to ask away, just work on one thing at a time and it won’t seem so crazy.

  3. […] quite easily. I just typed in the name and hit the enter key. Voila! There it was. It sounds like Sliloh may think this is a little scary […]

    I can certainly relate to how you feel. I am a pretty introverted person and on top of that, I’ve always had a hard time putting my work out there for the world to see. I’ve been working towards overcoming my fears of being ridiculed and rejected. The blogging class has helped me to take huge strides in this area by forcing me out of my shell with the homework requirements of socializing on other people’s blogs. You’re doing wonderfully, keep up the good work!

    I must admit Viki, so far nothing dire has happened 😉 Glad I’m not the only one struggling with this!

  6. Definitely not alone, Sliloh and Viki. The very term “social networking” scares me. So I’ll move slowly into those realms.

    Adele, I agree about Sliloh’s blog… worth reading as often as she posts.

  7. How did Viki and I get to be kitty-kats?

    Hi Barb, Thanks for the comment you crazy cat! lol

    Under the gravatar plugin it says: Default Gravatar to use (complete URI) so that way for people who don’t have one set I sent it to that picture to use 😉

    I am finding putting myself out there in the online world to be a lot like my experience putting myself out there performing in a coffee house many years ago. My friends encouraged me (ok they pushed a bit too) to take my music out of the closet. I would shake and feel like I wanted to throw up until I got a little into a set.

    Anything you do from your heart that you put out there for all the world to see will certainly make you feel vulnerable. Yet whenever we do it makes a difference for someone. Whenever I put a new blog post up I have to take a really deep breath. Not sure that feeling will ever go away. Maybe if it does though it’s a sign that my heart just isn’t in it though.

    So keep on putting yourself out there and someday you will be ready for the rest of us to know who you are! I can already tell you are someone I would want to meet 🙂

      Well, you are a lot braver than me if you could get up and perform in a coffee shop! Of course I can’t carry a tune so I’d probably get booed right out of the place 😉
      Several of my posts have been hard to get up the courage to post. Because no one likes to talk about mental illness. Oh well, I blog what I know I guess.
