What It’s Like To Be An Introverted Blogger

Why I Struggle With Blogging - How To Survive When You Are An Introverted Blogger

Hey there,

Lately I have been asking myself a lot of questions:

Why do I struggle sharing my life with others?

Why am I so hesitant about telling people about my blog?

I obviously feel the need to share at least some of my life with the public, so why can’t I share it with people that I actually know?

The list goes on and on.

I am so tired of beating myself up over things that I can’t change or questions that I don’t have the answer to. I don’t know why I am the way that I am. All I know is that I struggle to make the changes that I feel I need to make.

I have said before that it is okay to be an Introvert. But it is SO hard living in world where everyone expects you to be an Extrovert.

As children we are forced to raise our hands in class because if we don’t the teacher will call us out in front of the class or we won’t receive any participation points. I always felt like I had to sit in the back of the classroom in order to be able to learn anything. Just because I am silent does not mean that I am not listening. In fact, when I am silent and not worried about being called on, I am actually learning so much more.

It is so important to understand the different types of personalities instead of trying to cram everyone into the same category. I, for one, am exhausted of people trying to tell me how to act or how to feel.

When you market yourself as a blogger, it seems to be assumed that you are outgoing and personable.

I struggle with blogging because I love the creative outlet but I hate being compared to everyone else. I hate trying so hard to fit in a box with everyone else when I feel so different.

I just need to keep reminding myself that it is okay to be an Introvert. AndΒ it is more than okay to be an Introverted blogger.

Does anyone else out there struggle with blogging?

Thanks for readings!

    I usually struggle with finding topics to write about. I don’t find it too difficult to share personal information because I have an anonymous blog. If I attached my name to it, I think I’d definitely approach things differently. It’s totally okay to take things at your own pace and figure out exactly what you want your blog to be as an introverted blogger πŸ™‚

    Oh yes, I’m both an introvert and extrovert. It’s ok to be different. Make the blog the way you feel it should be. It’s definitely been a learning experience for me. At times I struggle to find topics to write about, promoting my blog, but I love meeting new people like yourself who can inspire me. Just be you, just be true.

      Thanks, Tiffany! It’s a struggle that I know I will be dealing with for the rest of my life. It’s all about finding a healthy balance and what works for you. I’m hoping that my blog inspires others to live their best life and be comfortable with who they are. I love meeting new people as well, from all walks of life. I hope that this blog will always be a place where I can be open and honest with anyone who wants to read it. πŸ™‚
