Perfect timing Jeff! I think social media can add to the challenge of feeling like an expert if you run in circles of people who think like you. I've been reflecting on this lately, so your post has helped put things in perspective! Jen

Awesome stuff Jeff! I came to your blog because I knew I'd find something I needed. I've been thinking about what to do with my blog. Currently it sucks...not for lack of ideas, I can't pin point what the deal is, but I certainly haven't been doing #2 of that list for sure. No excuses, gotta get to it! I'll have to check those links you provided. Thanks :)

Oh my! These look and sound wonderful! I am sure that I would have loved the pineapple. In a banana split, that was always my favorite :)

These are great Jeff!! Oh man, I talk to myself quite often, mostly when grocery shopping, to sort things out. There's something therapuetic about wondering grocery aisles that helps me work out other things I'm thinking about! Also, one I am trying to get better at again, is working out. I find that a good work out clears the clutter and helps me either get to solution or at least put things in manageable perspective.

I like this! I have been pleasantly surprised at how well business and personal have mixed. It's what you said about friends and family who support you. They want to see you do well and sometimes it's that "like" from my mom or old college friend that keeps me going. Also, friends share my links on their walls and vice versa. I agree that a key is not to force it.

I did video for a blog I had a while back. I agree, it's great to do and this is motivating to get back into it! I also have started an internet radio show where I interview people. That has been fun to get to share a part of my personality while also hearing the stories of other indie people...I love other people's stories!

Hilarious!! I have an eight year old and I just stepped on some tiny little ship with deathly sharp edges he left in the the middle of the living room floor.

Lots for me to think about as usual! I've been trying to get myself comfortable with being wrong out loud, lol! I'm sure I am and often, but I don't like it...I'm learning that sometimes you have to take that risk and try something or ask the "dumb" questions. I've been burned plenty of times by not doing this so I've been working on it!

Jeff, your approach really resonates with me. I appreciate it and was literally thinking about authenticity for my next post or two. I can't say how many blogs I click through in a day trying to collect information and get perspectives that will help me & my business grow and then help others. I come across a lot of what I call "glossy blogs" that look great and sound great, even have awards and stuff, but for me the heart - the genuineness, if I could use that - isn't there. All that to say, this post was very refreshing and inspiring. Thanks!!
