(ThyBlackMan.com) Did you know there are introvert and extrovert bloggers? Reading “What Is Your Blogging Personality” by Rabia Lieber http://www.thesitsgirls.com/blogging/blogging-personality/ helped to inspire my blog: You Know You’re a 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 you’re excited by the direct connections, fellowship and camaraderie 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 interactive involvement. 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. You’re happy with the current friends and followers and not extending yourself too 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/extro – verts.
