I am not a good networker.
I go to events, I talk to the person sitting next to me but I have to shoe horn my butt out of the chair to go and talk to others in the room. Eventually, I pipe into the conversation and I always enjoy it. It’s like going to the gym: you have to force yourself to go, but once you are there, you are glad you went.
I need to practice this skill. A lot. Why? Because I have been in print publishing for the last 8 years and it’s time to transition to the digital world. I love writing. I love it when people read what I have written and comment. Good, bad or indifferent, someone reading what I have written sends tingles up my spine.
I love meeting others who are in the world of writing, publishing, digital or print. I am just working up my courage to do this more often and would be ever grateful for the opportunity of winning the contest at Oh Baby! Magazine! (hint, hint, nudge, nudge…)
