I don’t know what it is exactly. Maybe it’s my age, I’m not sure. But others my age do it and do it well, so I really don’t know.
I know it’s important in this day and age, especially for someone who maintains a blog like I do, to be active on Twitter and Facebook. I understand this, and as much as I know I should, I realize I’m just not good at it. I just can’t chat online like others can. It probably hurts my overall traffic numbers, but I accept this.
I’m not trying to make a living through my website, I’m doing it out of love and passion for hockey, life, and writing. I don’t know what I’d do if I wasn’t able to write on a constant basis. I’d be unhappy and unsettled. So I carry on without using Twitter and Facebook as an important part of my life.
Yes, you see my links to my posts on Twitter and Facebook every day, but it’s only because they go up automatically. It’s set up this way. But for me to chat with others, I find very difficult.
I read Hockey Inside Out every day and really enjoy it as folks discuss all things Habs. But I’m in the background, not able to contribute, because I’m uncomfortable and unsure. The few times I venture in, I always worry my words will be misconstrued and maybe I shouldn’t have said this or that. So I stay back because I feel it’s better that way.
Is it insecurity on my part? Probably. Certainly. And I wish it wasn’t.
