I must confess…that…okay…i’ll just come right out and admit it…blogging kind of stresses me out. It may seem strange for a former actor to feel shy about putting herself out there, but man do I ever get stage fright when it’s time to start writing a blog post. Seriously, I would much rather don a chicken costume and sing “Memories” in front of an audience of ten thousand than write a 200 word blog post.

What is that about?

For me, it feels so strange to be putting my thoughts and opinions out there for any and all to see. Not only that, but with 70 million plus blogs—I feel like you need to stand out, find a niche, have something really important or new or witty to say, otherwise why say it at all? Aaargh—the pressure! What’s a reluctant blogger to do?
