In case you’re new here, so am I.  I’ve only been blogging for….1 1/2 months.

I’ve been on Facebook for almost 2 years.

My first tweet was to @riasharon on September 3, 2010.  “Great Day! : )  I’ve arrived! : ).

I need to tell you something, more like confess…

I

Have

Twitter

Envy.

Is that weird?  Is it wrong?  I’m feeling like the kid who gets picked last for kickball.  Or sitting behind the fence watching everyone else play, wishing I could play too, but not feeling ready.  I watch or listen to people I admire carrying on full fledged conversations and can’t wait for the day that it’s me having the conversation.

I know it takes time, I know it takes a lot of time.  I know I need to be patient, and I will.  I know that I need to keep reaching out, asking questions, reading, learning, writing, just to name a few.  Oh, and I need to…just keep tweeting, just keep tweeting, just keep tweeting.

Not going to lie.  Sometimes I’m part of the 28% that checks it before they even get out of bed.  Where do you fall?

If you are obsessed, leave me a comment and tell me why.  If not, I’d love to hear that too.

I recently read a blog post by Matt Ridings called Echo Chambers About Echo Chambers.  Enough Already. You can find a link to the post here:  http://ow.ly/3DBO5.  If you haven’t had a chance to read it, please do.

So, honestly, I read this two days ago and the line that reads “If you want to compete, then compete” won’t leave my head.

Do I want to compete?

Am I a competitor?

Compete.  Compete.  Compete.

I have been struggling with what I want to do with my life.  What would I call myself?  Am I an entrepreneur?  No.  But, consultant or freelancer sounds so generic and fluffy.  When I’m asked what I want to do I give them some rambling answer about loving social media, but not really sure what to do with it.

I read so many blog posts and tweets about relationships and engaging with people that after a while they all sound the same.  Do I really have something so profound and so different that people would pay me to say or write?  Maybe.

What if I say no? I don’t want to compete.  Does that mean I’m perceived as not willing to work as hard?   What if my goal isn’t to be the expert?  What if I don’t want to get a book published?  What if my goal isn’t to have a million followers on Twitter?

What if I just want to help people with their social media efforts?

(Seriously, I think that’s what I want to do.)

I know I’m the new kid on the block.  Right now, I’m a sponge.  I reading as much as I can when I can.  I love interacting and engaging with people on Facebook.  I love finding like-minded people on Twitter, but I’m pretty new there and I’m brand spanking new at blogging.  Expert?  No.  Experience?  Yes.

Compete?  Not yet.
