100th Post and Giveaway! So How Do You Overcome Blogger’s Shyness

Yay! Today is the 100th post for this blog. In celebration of it there’s going to be a giveaway! It’s actually a gift to be more exact to readers who love freebies! Details are at the bottom, but first let’s talk about overcoming blogger’s shyness.

Coming into the blogging game requires you to converse. If you’re going to be a wallflower, well dwell in the forums and lounge at the social networking sites until you’re ready to reach out.That’s kind of what I did. By nature I’m shy but I overcame it by improving my voice everyday on this blog. That’s the part about blogging which bloggers don’t talk about much. However, all of that depends on how much commitment to you you’re going to invest.

The thing about human nature is we cannot control the urge to communicate our inner thoughts. The desire to make ideas happen and find a community which surrounds us in these ideas is always an ongoing search.

Thanks to the internet. The silent will become profound and the profound … well more profound. :) Eventually, the circle connects all of us together into a cyber-trotting nomadic group who is constantly pitching ideas out to one another.

Every blogger you meet is a chance for you to connect, learn, become influenced and eventually meet! Now I haven’t reached the meeting part yet but I’m connecting and learning everyday.

The influence is rather a longer process. That will show over time and the community you’re going to surround yourself will be in need of these individuals.

They will consist of three catagories:

  1. those more knowledgeable than you
  2. those just about as knowledgeable as you
  3. those willing to put in the work to acquire the knowledge from you

The breakdown of the three can be segmented further into what Seth Godin deems permission marketing.

To do that, you’ll need to do several things:

  • subscribe to their e-mail list
  • listen to what they have to say in their newsletters
  • try out products they suggest (if you can)
  • interact with them on their blog
  • follow them on twitter
  • be a fan or friend on Facebook
  • contact them personally when you’re ready to take it to the next level

Most importantly, you have to be creative. If there’s a channel which you can connect further. Do so. In fact, if it’s available, it means the permission is there. You just have to give your heads up on the open end of the process.

Say YES and communicate.
