I haven’t been blogging for a while, except for occasional Share Your World posts. Oh, I’ve wanted to. I’ve missed you. I know I still have old friends to play with and new friends to meet. But the truth is that I burned myself out and needed a break.
Some of you have commented that I seemed more like an extravert than an introvert, and you were right, in a way. I was doing on my blog what I do at work…. I put on my extravert face so I could communicate with almost 1800 people. I didn’t realize I was doing it. I was caught up in the thrill of growing the blog and finding all of you, my introverted sisters and brothers. It was fun sharing our experiences, speaking our own language, knowing that I’d be understood. It was safe. It was exciting. Until I drained myself of all my energy. Wearing a fake extravert face takes a lot of energy.
So I stepped back and just vegged out a little. i did the blogging equivalent of hiding in bed with the covers over my head. I got to the point of not wanting to interact with anyone, online or in real life. I needed time to recharge.
I think I’ve done that now, but I’m still feeling a little cautious, a little hesitant to dive back in. What is I mess it up again and take all the fun out of blogging? Baby steps back into the swing of things.
Thanks for waiting for me. It’s good being back. I will enjoy catching up with all of you. We still have a lot to share.
Hi. I’m Chris. I’m an introvert. All of my postings tend to reflect my introvert world in some way or another. Join me and like minded introverts for a special slant on the world.
