“You Know You’re an Introvert/Extrovert Blogger When….”

Did you know there are introvert and extrovert bloggers?
Reading “What Is Your Blogging Personality” by Rabia Lieber
helped to inspire my blog:
“You Know You’re an Introvert/Extrovert Blogger When….”
It is beneficial to understand your writing style
to increase your potential to create content that
connects people. Social Media is a “social” activity
that incorporates the diversity of “media” to share
content on diverse platforms.

If your excited by the direct connections, fellowship
and comradeship of Social Media you are probably a
candidate for being an extrovert blogger.
Your blogging gives you energy and excitement to
finding connections beyond your current circles of
interaction. You seek to increase your friends,
likes and hits, and you look forward to feedback.

The other extreme is where your writing gives you
peace and comfort. Your happy with the current
friends and followers and not extending yourself to
much to increase a Social Media following. Your
writing is personal, you are probably an introvert.

Each of our personalities helps to dictate our
place as a blogger/content creator. Our relationships
and future collaborations and associations are dictated
by our personalities and in some cases many of us
are a combination of intro/extroverts.
