Today on FWJ Radio we talked about blogging for a living. As we were talking, I noticed a certain phrase came up more than once, “I’m normally very shy…”. I hear this a lot from bloggers. In fact, for me blogging helped to overcome my shyness. There is no way ten years ago I’d be speaking at conferences or hosting weekly podcasts.
A decade ago, I would have sat in the back of the room trying not to draw too much attention to myself. Now I sit in front so I can be seen when I raise my hand to ask questions. In short, blogging has given me confidence.
What do you think, is blogging the revenge of the shy people? Has it given wallflowers an opportunity to to be heard?
