Let's PIVOT Together
It's hard to believe that the Beyond Introversion website and blog began on July 11, 2019, nearly 4 1/2 years and 239 blogs later!
That August, one of my friends shared his concerns that my weekly posts would tap me out of topics soon. I chuckled as I felt assured my head held a plethora of ideas, concerns, and resources that I needed to purge and that others might benefit from.
Well, I now believe the time has come to pivot a bit.
In January 2024, I have 3 big changes coming:
I will transition from weekly blogs to periodic newsletters to subscribers only.
I will enhance the website to provide easy navigation to the information you are looking for amongst the hundreds of blogs, dozens of resources, and several popular quizzes. All will remain available for your free reference and sharing.
I will introduce live webinars to the introvert community. These will enable introverts to join (anonymously if they wish) to listen, learn, and participate in topics of importance to each of us. The first such live webinar will be scheduled for Tuesday, February 6th at 7pm Central Time. Registration information will be sent to subscribers soon. Based on your feedback, this live webinar may be expanded to other sessions and topics and YouTube episodes may be added as well.
So Why the Pivot?
I love writing these blogs. I believe they share helpful information to the introvert community. Sure they don't all appeal to everyone. That's actually been the point. We are all different and at different points in our own journey. So I've included blogs for kids, parents, teens, new college students, working adults, and retirees. I've been fortunate to have 39 wonderful guest bloggers share their stories and resources as well. In 2023 I included a mix of new topics, guest blogs, and "best of" blogs from the past. However, I feel like filling 52 weekly topics in 2024 will result in a lot of repeats that provide less service to you. I still believe the topics on the website are pertinent and applicable, so I'm going to introduce a simpler way to explore the topics of most interest to you.
I aim to provide new information via my website newsletters when unique topics pop up. If you have topics you'd like me to explore, Contact me - I'd love to hear from you.
Finally, it is time to build on the current website information with brief YouTube topics and more information and interactive live introvert webinars. I love getting feedback from you, our community. I also have enjoyed addressing specific issues you may be struggling with. This new live format provides us the opportunity to have such discussions, while also providing a safe forum for those who just want to listen and learn in the comfort of their couch and coffee.
I hope you will join us on this journey in 2024. Most of my communication in 2024 will be with subscribers as opposed to social media blasts so subscribing is the best way to get the latest and join events. If you haven't subscribed yet, please take the opportunity to do so here.
