We worry that we aren’t “enough” or aren’t “ready” to step up.
A few weeks ago when I blogged about not sending out a particular promotional email, one of the comments was from someone who worried she’d be bothering her list, too.
I’m subscribed to her list! I was able to say (okay, beg) as a subscriber that I wanted her to email me. I wanted reminders to check out her blog and learn more about how to dress stylishly (because I’d live in denim skirts, t-shirts, and a pony tail for every occasion if it were totally up to me and since I’m no longer 14 so I probably need to reconsider that). Almost every time I get an email from her in my inbox I click through to check out her website and get a little more inspiration to find a style that fits me.
We worry about what we’re sending our lists. But they subscribed by CHOICE. They want to learn more from us. Isn’t that awesome?
They’re your fans. Go be their rockstar. Your stage is waiting.
Whether you’ve got 10 fans or 10,000 fans, they’re waiting for what’s next from you. You don’t need Adonis DNA, a dress made of meat, or pointy ears like Spock. Okay, maybe just the pointy ears. Just be you. But louder.
Ignore the butterflies. I get those same butterflies about blogging. What if I can’t deliver something good enough? I’ve got to remember that all my visitors are here by choice. You like learning from me or you wouldn’t stick around and read. (The same is true of your blog readers, newsletter subscribers, and other connections, by the way.)
So thank you for sticking around to read my blog. I appreciate that you’re allowing me to be part of your online business success!
