Yowzers! The more I learn about promoting yourself and your work the more I want to hide in my little world of lurkdom! I went to RomanceDivas as per Lisa's suggestion. (Thank you, Lisa) and learned way more than I feel I can pull off!
I'm ready to make up book marks and magnets and other promotional items, but the fact I need to have steady input (no less than once a week) on the loops to not look like I am only on the loop to promote myself - that is a hard one. I am a lurker. I read, I listen, I glean. I don't normally add to the conversations, unless it is something I feel strongly about or have the knowledge to help.
With this promotion thing, I am going way out of my comfort zone. But then when I started my 4-H job, I told them I would not get up in front of a crowd and speak - now I teach classes and get up in front of all the leaders and members at the recognition dinner to hand out awards. So I guess this will be another growing experience for me.
