Your Turn! | De-Lurk Day 2016
Well, in a sense. This blog went online October 18th, 2011 – so I’ve been sitting on my virtual sofa here, quietly teaching about psychology for almost five years.
And I do think of this as a quiet space.
There are plenty of glassy, loud, flashing cities of websites on the Internet, I prefer to envision my corner here as a quiet neighborhood. You all are off in your own homes living your full lives. But you’re neighborly and drop in for cinnamon tea once a week. We sit next to my bookshelves chatting about something interesting, and then you go on your way.
I hope these conversations – posts and emails – are useful to you.
It certainly makes my day when you guys pop by to tell me about a success you’ve had after leaving my blog and trying out what you read.
But like any conversation – I want to make sure you get YOUR turn to have the floor.
So today, as in years before, it’s De-Lurk Day!
It’s the day when you all come out of lurking and hiding and introduce yourself to the neighbors. Let me and others know what fabulous company they’re in, and answer a few questions. (See De-Lurk Day 2013, De-Lurk Day 2014, etc.)
Because YOU make this blog what it is. You indulge my geeky love of psychology and customer care, and I want to make sure that I know who is here and what you need most. So you can de-lurk again even if you participated last time!
Also? I’ve been standing by this assertion for five years now – I have the best blog readers on the planet.
And every de-lurk day just proves me right all over again.
(I love being right about how great you are.)
You guys have enormous hearts and see things so clearly. Except maybe when it comes to how luminous and wonderful you yourself are – so it’s my job to remind you every week. Help me do that?
Take just a moment to leave a comment now!
- Your name + whereabouts you’re located
- What kind of business are you in – or what are you working on? (What brings you here?)
- What do you wish clients / your audience knew about you – and why do you have a hard time telling them? (This helps me help you, my friends.)
And I’ll sweeten the pot – I’ll randomly draw one person from the comments to meet with me for 30 minutes via Skype.
To talk about whatever you want: Business, life, hot cocoa preferences. Normally I have to charge quite a bit for 1:1 consulting time BUT one person will win this for free (prize has no cash value, though). The meeting will be scheduled sometime between Nov 15-18. Hope it’s you!
It’s called: Write About Yourself So Clients Will Listen.
In prior de-lurk days, lots of folks – introverts and extroverts alike – said they had trouble talking about themselves online.
“I’m not that interesting,” you guys like to claim. “I don’t know what people want to hear.”
Let me show you what’s really true here.
This class covers:
- The secret skill you ALREADY have that makes you an expert at writing about yourself.
- How to know exactly how much to share online (even if you’re a private person)
- What clients actually want to hear about you
By the time you’re done, you’ll have:
- A short, 3-line bio that’s publish-ready!
- A personalized cheat sheet of blogging ideas
- A clear view of how to comfortably talk about yourself in business
Read or listen along!
You’ll get a written + an mp3 audio version each day. Listen while you edit or do dishes! (In order, the audio lasts 3, 9, 15, and 4 minutes, so it’ll fit right in with your day.)
And it’s free.
