Every Tuesday Two Writing Teachers provide an opportunity to share your writing.

I have been writing Haddon Musings off and on now for almost three years.  Since 2015, I have really dedicated myself to continuously writing and reaching out to other bloggers and developing a community of of writing and artistic friends.  This has become a pleasure that I look forward to on a daily basis.

Well, right about now you are saying that’s all well and good Bernadette but what does that have to do with the title of this post??  Here is the explanation.  I am:


But, while I was away on my vacation these last 12 days, I found to my amazement that I was starting conversations with complete strangers.  I was asking them about their lives and their home towns and their children and all kind of things.  I NEVER, EVER DO THIS!   I can sit on the beach for hours reading and observing but never speaking to a soul except for Dom.  What could this be?  Have I caught some strange virus that causes personality changes?  Dom could not believe it.  He actually had to wait for me to stop talking to people in order to leave the beach to go to lunch.  This, my friends, is a complete role reversal.

Well, my conclusion is that my curiosity about your lives and interaction with you have caused me to venture into the world of extroversion.  I am sure that I will always be an introvert at heart but this putting my toes in the waters of extroversion is a lot of fun.

Thank you my blogging community for making it happen,


About Bernadette

I live in the small town of Haddonfield, NJ. I am at an age in my life when I seem to spend time thinking and musing about life. These musings are usually stimulated by my walks through Haddonfield, my reading of books and fellow bloggers, and my interaction with my group of fabulous family and friends.

  1. Me too! An introvert for sure. I’ve never researched this, but I wouldn’t be surprised if we would find that a great proportion of writers are introverts. Writing requires so much introspection and reflection—you can’t do that in a crowd!

  2. Bernadette, I really like this post as I can truly relate to it. I feel since I started my blog, I am starting to come out of my ‘shell’ some. Interesting process. Thanks for sharing and have a great day! 🙂

  3. I know what you mean, Bernadette. I’m an introvert, yet I’ve become more outgoing too. I attribute it to age and being more comfortable in my own skin, but I also think the all these wonderful online relationships reinforce a belief that the world is full of good, kind, interesting people. And introversion isn’t actually anti-social; it just means that we replenish through alone time, definitely still true for me.I really enjoy this blogging stuff 🙂
