Beginner's Stage Fright?
I am new to Wealthy Affiliate and am happy to be here. The first few days, I immersed myself in the training so much, that I woke up thinking about WA and my website, and went to sleep doing the same thing. I looked forward to the work, and still do. That is such a great feeling, even if it sometimes has frustration and fear along with it. I have almost completed one website except for writing the content.
I personally associate stage fright with actors, or public speaking, but have been feeling it online the last two days or so. After I had made myself a little familiar with my profile page, and completed the "Getting Started," course and some of the "Affiliate Bootcamp," courses, I realized some WA members were following me. I kept thinking wow, I need to do work on some other things, like the blog and interact with others. Otherwise, they will be following blank white space, lol.
But for about two days I procrastinated and my drive dipped lower. Which is strange because I love to write, and I found out I loved learning the "build your own website," section in the course. I had always assumed building websites was for the technically talented people. But Kyle and Carson made it so simple and logical. I actually had fun learning how to build one from scratch. It is so exciting to see something that you created (with WA's help), come to life.
But getting back to the stage fright feeling, I felt I did not have enough experience to start a blog yet. I would have negative thoughts like, "What in the world are you going to post?" "What if you embarrass yourself somehow?" "You don't have enough education in online business to post anything about this subject." Aren't all those things silly? I kept thinking I don't want to quit, I know I can do this. So I replaced those thoughts with positive ones, and decided to just dive in. Thank you to all those that follow me and read this. I hope we can all learn and help each other. Good luck to everyone!
