A to Z Challenge: E is for ENJOYMENT

Nicola Morgan is someone who knows how to ask the right questions. (Gill is another.)

About my two years of blogging, she asked, “Have you enjoyed it?”

I didn’t know how to answer that at first. I know it’s been a positive experience. I know the things I worried about when I began it – criticism, ridicule, disregard – didn’t happen.

But have I enjoyed it? Yes. I’ve enjoyed connecting with people through my blog. Most of all, I’ve enjoyed meeting up with two of those people in real life. One of them, Cathy Walter, I met for the first time. The other, Erika, knew me but didn’t know me – not the real me. I do hope to meet more of my online friends in real life, because I enjoy doing that.

I think we should all be clear about what we enjoy, because:

Enjoyment is what life is for.

That and helping others to enjoy life.

Hi Jot!
Yes, what you describe in the article sounds very much like social anxiety. I can’t say for certain whether you have it. That depends on how much the symptoms take over your life.

I’m not so typical. Yes, interaction is tiring and I worry about it afterwards, but I always go back for more.

Nice philosophy Miriam. Why be miserable when we have so much to be happy about? Blogging is totally different than what I had expected when I got into it, but I really had little concept about what to expect. I’m loving it now.

Thanks for being a part of A to Z.

Contrary to my usual practice of subscribing to comments, to save time during this early part of the challenge I will not be doing so at this time. If you want to respond to my comment, please email me directly from your email notification for the comment.
Thanks. And I truly appreciate your efforts.
