I can’t thank you enough for all the kind emails and comments I received on my last post. This is exactly why I love this medium so much. The encouragement and support was almost overwhelming. I’m deeply grateful.
I’m not sure I learned any big lessons, but the break was helpful. I just needed that time and space to think without worrying about creating anything. I’ll be doing a blog post sometime next week with a few thoughts on my time off.
But now, at long last, the frequently rumored and often-promised ebook I’ve been talking about for months is finally DONE and ready for downloading! Many, many months ago, I came across this quote from Clay Shirky:
“Digital media is an amplifier. It tends to make extroverts more extroverted and introverts more introverted.”
I couldn’t believe that someone who actually teaches and writes about social media could say something that was so far off the mark. That’s what really inspired me to write this ebook. In fact, I think introverts have TONS of great skills already that help when using social media. And to help introverts get the most out of it, I’ve outlined an easy 5-step process for learning about and using social media more effectively to meet your communications goals — whether personal or business.
I have to say one of the reasons I was dragging my feet on this is because it’s scary to put yourself out there. Even today as I was getting everything ready, I wanted to find reasons to wait another day to make just one more change. But it finally got to the point where NOT hitting the publish button was harder than doing it. So here it is.
I hope you’ll take a few moments to download the ebook and let me know what you think. You can download it on the new Ebooks page of my Web site (Hint: That means I have more in mind!)
