I’m shy! Day 17 zerotohero

I’m really not used to commenting, yes I feel awkward, it’s not that I have nothing to say, it’s just that I hate speaking in public.  I thought that just extended to literally speaking in public, but it obviously I have discovered just now that it extends further.  You might say that how come I feel comfortable writing on my blog, somehow that feels different that going on to ‘someone else’s’ post, like I am invading ‘their’ space and ‘speaking up’.  Hey but I’ve done it, it feel’s ok, so watch out I am sure my little gravatar might start popping up with confidence on more posts 🙂


Yesterday, you published using the Daily Prompt as a starting point, so today you can explore the same prompt through the eyes of dozens of your fellow bloggers. There are also two options for posting today, depending on whether you completed yesterday’s task — skip to the end to learn more.

Today’s assignment: read six posts written in response to yesterday’s prompt, and leave comments on at least two of them.

Read 6 posts from the Daily Prompt Day 15 and comment on 3

1. http://eyeslikeglass.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/daily-prompt-blogger-of-repute/

This was short but sweet, but I felt it important to recognize from what the blogger said that being a person who fills in the gaps terribly important 🙂

2.  http://laurenkells.com/2014/01/17/his-hers-reputation/

I read the above post but did not comment, I seem to have lost a day or so on the challenges though I thought I was up to date, however quite alot of conversation came about for/from others on this post.

3.  http://ellenmaybe.wordpress.com/2014/01/18/well-this-could-be-awkward/

I commented on this post.  Namely the insight in to her relationship with her father tugged at my heart somewhat, plus she made a fantastic art piece which I am sure thousands of little boys would lovely globally and I tried to encourage/hint for her to make it in to a textile.

4.  http://myboxedlife.wordpress.com/2014/01/17/you-dont-have-to-go-home-but-you-cant-stay-here/

I read this post, seemed to be an expose on a woman’s younger self, it made me think of myself when younger, not that we seemed to be similar but I guess a little bit of me misses those days but I wouldn’t change it for the world as I have two lovely lively sweet boys in my life now!

This was a short poem, here’s part of it:

To earn a good reputation

Depends on a good education

We need to teach others how we tick

By using every known little trick

Whilst I think education is important, it doesn’t always provide what is necessary, I think what a child gets at home just if not more important than what they get at school.

I enjoyed reading this one, not that I didn’t the others, but I was glad to have come across this as my last one.  It was refreshing, honest and showed a dry sense of humour.  There were a few quotes also thrown in which I liked:

“If someone did not know you but looked at your Facebook for 2013 what would they think of you. The words you posted, the comments you made and the pictures you decided to share. What impressions have you made? Are you making the impression you want? If so great. If not, why not?”

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.”
Abraham Lincoln

So there are my 6 choices.

I would like to finish off for the day with a the picture below, because of the words, ones I myself should learn to remember 🙂

    I totally identify with your post. I often find myself overanalyzing what I say or write for fear of how it may be interpreted.

      Yes exactly it’s learning experience one which I am sure we will get more confident in as it’s a great way to connect and ‘spread the word’. So I hope to see you commenting here again and thank you 🙂

    When I first started commenting on blogs, I started to question my own writing and wonder if it makes sense. After a while though, especially with blogs I comment on often, I become more confident. I’m sure you’ll be more confident! 🙂

      Thank you and yes I’m sure/hope I will. The first person who followed my blog I now follow her and she has a lovely quirky sense of humour and I have to stop myself striking up a back and forth tete a tete as it’s not facebook lol! So sometimes it’s loosening the reigns or tightening them. I appreciate your comment and hope to catch up again 🙂
