Wed. & Writing: You Tell Me
It's kind of ironic because not too long ago I posted conference tips, but i'm just a bundle of nerves. I guess there isn't much to be nervous about since there are no pitch sessions. But I feel like this conference is so important, some kind of opportunity or something. I guess, in truth, I know that this is a networking event, and that networking is not my strong suit. Don't get me wrong. I'm a friendly person and I love meeting people. But most of the time I'm too shy to just approach people. I've learned to use my bookmark as a tool. I feel better talking to strangers if I can give them something, like somehow my 40 cent bookmark will make them want to talk to me. LOL. And to make matters worse, I'm kind of awkward. Like I don't say the right things at the right times. In the blogosphere I can. It's easier. I prefer to write than talk anyhow, and I can see what my response looks like before I send it. Does anyone have any suggestions?
