Breaking in is hard to do. (A mommy blogging post)

by April on August 10, 2011 · 1 comment

Lately, I’ve been working on getting my new website ready.  I have a website, and my hosting, and I’m working on design right now.  That’s the easy part. (…and I’m clueless.)

What’s the hard part?

Breaking in. Not literally, of course.

In my quest to take blogging seriously, I am aware that I need people to read my blog. The more people read my blog, the more I get to know other people and I develop a network.  More than that, I develop some online friends. My question is: Where do I start?!?

I feel like the new kid at school.  Everyone has their own groups of friends, and I’m the one lurking on the outside of circles on the playground, laughing at their jokes, making a comment… and then feeling awkward when they realize I’m there.

Twitter is a dangerous beast– because I’m beginning to feel like I genuinely know and like these people I’ve never met, but I’m pretty sure they don’t know I exist.  Again, I’m feeling like a stalker.

Where do I begin? How do I begin? How do I convince people that I’m relatively normal and cool to be around?

Just some thoughts.  For every moment of encouragement, it seems like there’s a seed of doubt. I’m doing the right thing, right?

At least my kid thinks I’m cool.
