Just a quick post today, about something I really struggle with and honestly any advice anyone has to deal with this would be amazing.
They say in order to create a successful blog you need to promote it, here’s the thing though what happens, if like me you have such high anxiety about what people would think. It’s almost like I don’t want people I know to know about this blog in case they judge me or they make fun of me or something along those lines. I mean though this anxiety extends further like I honestly struggle to do things like posting on facebook groups I am apart of, I am constantly worried about someone saying something or upsetting someone or being wrong that I just stay silent and lurk.
I watch people who can just constantly promote themselves with what seems like no issue, whereas I’ve had to create a separate Instagram and Twitter in order to promote myself, accounts that no one I know, knows about which means I am starting entirely from scratch on all social platforms, instead of being able to use the following I’ve already got. I know that blog growth isn’t the main goal and I don’t need 100s of readers, but I mean, I guess it would be nice if someone read it hahaha.
I feel like this blog has helped me get over a slight amount of anxiety when it comes to posting on facebook groups or on a public forum space and I love being able to sit down and post on here, I could just never post it somewhere people I know could easily find me.
How do you guys deal with this sort of anxiety? Do you guys even get this?
