Knock, Knock. Who's There? It's Elsie Amata - An IWSG Post

Insecurities. Wow. That’s an easy one this month.  I jumped right into the whole “Guess I’ll get a new website” idea and in the process managed to lose access to my old blog in the process. While I’d love to put all the blame on GoDaddy, I’m sure I had a big part to play too. (read that as most of the part…okay, probably all of it).

So, here I am, writing my first Insecure Writer’s Support Group post from my shiny new website but I have no way of telling anyone I’m here other than the old fashioned way: knocking on your virtual front doors and hoping you’ll answer. That leaves me feeling quite insecure.

I’m starting from scratch. Gah!

I have no idea if scheduling the post will work because I have to get up and ready for work, not mess around with my blog Wednesday morning. I have no clue if the comments section will work like they should. I also have no idea if anyone will find me…old or new at my fancy dancy site. So yeah. I’m pretty insecure.

But you know what? I’m also super excited. While my new website still has some tweaking to be done, I’m proud of myself. I did it. I actually put the words sex addict in the title. I’m not afraid anymore. Well, okay sure, I’m still afraid people will be like, “Oh snap, I know who Elsie really is,in real life!” (And a select few of you really do). However, I’m no longer afraid of the disease itself and that is freaking awesome.

Are there fears that you have managed to overcome?

As I mentioned, I'm working today but I'll be by this afternoon to see everyone. Cheers!
