Stage Fright


Tomorrow I am off to present at a conference. I will be talking about personal blogging - why would anyone write a personal blog? (I don't really know, perhaps I should just say because they are a little crazzzzzzeeeeee).

This means that a handful of people might be clicking over here for the first time, which in reality does happen sometimes -  New people click here and take a look around. But when you expect that people are going to meet you 'for real' and then come over here and take a look around, well, I think I get a little stage fright. It makes me think I need to have a great and amazing post here. Something they read and think, wow, that woman is fantastic, I can see why people read her blog!

The truth is that today, I am stuck for words. Nothing I have in my mind seems interesting enough.

Nothing seems exciting and thrilling and something worth sharing.

Usually I would share what we got up to on the weekend, how much fun we had doing a few things, how steep the hills were that Popps ran up and down and what it was like having a father's day when you don't have a father for the first time.

But the words are not cooperating.

For those of you here for a first visit, I am sorry this is all you get, maybe click back another day when I am not expecting any visitors and you will see me as I usually am - whatever that actually is. For my wonderful and most loyal regular readers, regular transmission shall resume once I have my stage fright under control.

  4. All the best Claire - I'm sure you'll be awesome. I think all of you who take on these public speaking gigs are so brave. I'd be shaking in my boots. (So not the public speaking type.)

  6. Hi new readers of Claire's,

    I think that post just summed it up perfectly. Sometimes personal blogging is fun and the words flow and all is great. Other times it's a hard slog. Just like life.
