Alone Time

Today, Blogging 101 is telling me to comment on four blogs I’ve never commented on before.

Today, I feel like being an introvert.

Reaching out is great. It’s one of my favorite parts of blogging. Tonight, though? I’m going to take some time for myself. Sometimes I spend so much time interacting with other people on WordPress that I forget that, even though I am technically by myself while talking to them, I’m still putting myself out there.

And introverts need alone time. Even in the blogosphere.

So, sorry Blogging 101. I’m going to get some homework done instead…because I’m actually getting graded on that.

    1. Ya know, I actually don’t mind cleaning. Though it might sound weird, it kind of relaxes me.
      I’ll stick to my homework for now…I just started the semester and am enjoying my classes so far. However, in seven or eight weeks I’ll probably be ready for a break so I might call you up for a swap then. 😉

  1. I was reluctant to comment because I know you want to be left alone but blogging 101 told me to comment on bloggers I never commented. I can certainly relate to this though. Sorry to bug – you hope you ace your grades.

    1. Your comment is more than welcome! I love when people comment on my blog.
      I didn’t even log onto WordPress after posting last night, so I didn’t even see your comment until this morning…when I was more than ready to interact with other bloggers. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

    1. It is, it definitely is! I do have a bit of social anxiety–though it has gotten better over the years–and it is so much easier for me to talk to people online in general, which is why I love blogging. However, the main different between introverts and extroverts is the way they refuel. Introverts refuel by being by themselves and extroverts refuel by being around people. Last night, I didn’t even want any virtual communication with others. I just needed to be by myself and have some alone time to recharge and feel refreshed. 🙂

      1. I understand a bit better. However, it’s difficult to put myself in one of these categories. I would probable be closer to extroverts, even if sometimes I need several days alone, to be able to charge up my batteries 🙂

  2. Hahaha Britta! Yes, I totally agree that there is the possibility of being a virtual introvert. Actually, not just a possibility but a definite existence. I am one. I don’t think it makes a difference where you are, physically or “ethery”, if you need time out you need to take it to recharge. I am known for taking Facebook fasts for a month or more at a time. So go with our blessing and do some homework. You know this place will always be here.

    1. Glad to know I’m not the only one. Usually even when I need to be physically alone, I don’t mind taking part in virtual conversations. However, last night I just wasn’t having it. Thank you for stopping by and for the comment! 🙂
