To join or not to join. That is always my question.
Like Nikki, I'm a lurker. I comment occasionally, but mostly I read and absorb. But in order to fully enjoy this experience we call blogging, I've learned that I have to put myself out there a bit more and join in. Comment. Ask questions. Listen. Be me.
It's tough, because I'm an introvert. It's easy to stay pretty quiet most of the time in real life. In the blogosphere it's even easier! That's why lurking is so appealing to me.
But now, I know the Lord is actually nudging me (has been since I re-started my blog) to join...to join in the conversations on twitter. To join in by commenting on a few more 5-minute posts. To join...to become part of this community...
If you aren't already checking it out, you should head on over to Gypsy Mama's 5-Minute Friday...Today...Now even...
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And the heart of this community..
OK, are you ready? Please give us your best five minutes on:::
