When I first started posting on LinkedIn, I was anxious.
What would I write about? How could I make an impact? Would people read what I share?
Shrugging off all the thoughts, I went ahead and published my first post. And then the second one. And the third.
I started to get a hang of things as the days went by. Amidst everything, here’s what I learnt:
- Take that step that you are hesitant about.
- Trust that you’d figure it out along the way!
- Be patient. And persistent.
People! You can’t know it all when you start. I too didn’t know how things worked. I didn’t know what I’d post the next week. I didn’t know what would work or what won’t. I didn’t even know if anyone would engage on my posts or not.
But, I posted. And kept posting. And engaging.
I tried to provide something that would add value, help others. I posted my experiences and knowledge – something that I was looking for when I started.
I didn’t learn it anywhere. I also didn’t know the how and why and when.
I read. I imbibed. I did.
Now, it has been more than a year on LinkedIn. And I’ve made more than 300 posts! Been a long journey, but hey! It’s still the start 🙂
So, just let go of everything. Don’t overthink. Write. And hit that POST button!
Give yourself a chance and just go for it!
