This will be my second BlogathonATX. I found my first one to be very stimulating, inspiring and educational. I made some new connections, reconnected with people I’ve met before and met some people in real life I’ve only known virtually. I got some ideas for things to do to my Word Press page, got some good honest feed back, had many laughs, good conversations, and ate plenty of yummy food.
So you may have noticed I didn’t mention blogging. Well, I didn’t actually do any of that. I’m still working up to it. I went to BlogathonATX #4 to face some fears about blogging and in small ways I did make some progress. Now I’m getting ready for my second one and hope to move ahead a little more. With the number of kick ass people involved in BlogathonATX doing so many cool things, I know it will help me get over myself and hopefully get out of my own way to write something. This exercise alone is hard enough. But @IleenieWeenie asked if I would do it and I figured I should try putting on my big girl panties and face my fears a little bit.
I can hear you asking, “If this is so hard for you, why are you doing it?” Well, I have a few reasons. Now I want to overcome this barrier I have built in my mind. Also, I’m a Professional Organizer and I know I have tips and ideas to share that can help people if I could just get them out of my head. Finally, by sharing an area of weakness I can show my clients and potential clients that I understand about struggling to overcome personal challenges. I know that this block is all in my head, much like the ones my clients have for themselves.
So if you meet me at BlogathonATX and I’m doing everything but blogging. Please be gentle. I’m still working on it. Maybe you can tell me what you’d like to learn about organizing and I can write you a personal post.
Thank you in advance for your help.
