Writing about myself.
Last Update: Jan 30, 2018
Does anyone else have this problem? Or did you, back when you were first in WA?
I've purchased my domain, chosen a theme, and www.rovingretirees.org is officially open for business -- Google even indexed it before I was finished with that lesson!
Now, the coursework tells me, its time to write "About Me".... Ugh!
I don't like talking about myself! I think we're trained (I'm sure I was) to be modest, self-effacing, the opposite of showy, flashy. I think I'm procrastinating beginning my next task from a lack of perceived ego. Could it be that simple?
In general, I don't like to write; so what am I doing trying to start a blog on WA, you ask. Well, at age 73 I'm starting to notice (not really for the first time) that much of what I read and experience, TV, radio, books & magazines, seems trivial or trite! "I've already seen that", I'll think. "I've read that before." And most interestingly, "Why isn't anyone talking/writing about this?" So, I see WA as a platform to get some of my own ideas and experiences out there, and to share what I'm thinking and doing right now....
So, back to my original premise: how do you overcome your ingrained reluctance to put yourself out there in order to get that "About Me" page written. What strategy did others of you employ to overcome that shyness? conservatism? embarrassment?
I hope it's not Nike simple: "Just do it!"
