I get really shy about sharing posts, so all this social networking is stressful for me. I love to learn about this but I hope I can overcome my anxieties.

Me too, I have wanted to do a my space or facefook, but i have reservations about sharing things online.

I understand!

It can be difficult. I bet you share frequently with your colleagues at work, though. Why do you think that this forum would be different?

I would think this would be a great place to float some ideas. Hope you learn to like chatting with 18,184 of your closest friends! haha. Welcome aboard.

The problem is writing, it never goes a way. I do like to share ideas face to face with colleagues, but when I am doing that I can see their facial reactions to my words or hear the various intonations in their voice. All of that is absent in online chat, so I don't find it to be as satisfactory as actual conversation.

Martha, I am new to this type of sharing and was also reluctant to share online at first. But the ability to link immediately to more info, comments, blog posts is what has me sold on this. It is a great way to get lots of ideas quickly, and I am more likely to implement ideas right away when I have them right at my fingertips. After a conversation with colleagues, I often walk away ad forget all about the great idea they shared.

I hate to write and don't do it well--I write just like I talk--in snippets. I too have learned over the years to read what I write before I send it so I can make sure my message is clear and I haven't adopted a tone different from what I want.

Martha and Nancy, you do bring up good points. It is easier to be misunderstood or to misunderstand when writing...guess that is a good reminder to me to reread my posts before sending....

Since I am really sarcastic and say a lot of things tongue-in-cheek I always make sure I type 'haha' or smiley when I'm joking. I don't want to change the 'voice' in my writing but certainly don't want to offend!!

Ha! I'm pretty sarcastic at times too. Doesn't the symbol * after something indicate sarcasm? It seems I've seen an asterik used this way on some message boards?
