  1. You go girl!!!

    Isn’t it amazing what can happen when you just push yourself a little bit outside of your comfort zone? :) You’ve added great things to the dialogue in the blogosphere. We’re lucky to have your insights and spunkiness.

    Looking forward to seeing you (and presenting with you!) at Internet Librarian!

    While it would be a stretch to say that I’m shy, I will certainly agree that starting a blog somehow gave me the courage to introduce myself to strangers at Internet Librarian 2005. I felt a little weird following Sarah Houghton up an escalator to introduce myself, but once I made that one introduction, it was much easier for the rest of the conference to meet people. Without my own blog, I didn’t feel comfortable leaving many of these kinds of comments, contacting bloggers via email, etc. Now I’m an unstoppable egomaniac–I mean outgoing professional!

    Another good way to meet people at a conference: hang out at the hotel bar after dinner. When you see someone you recognize, go over and say “hey, I like your blog/your presentation this morning/the cut of your jib/whatever.”
