Am I the only one intimidated?
I love this site. It's invaluable. Truly. But - I have to admit it gets pretty intimidating. At the risk of being embarrassed...am I the only one?
I'm not referring to the people (although I've seen some pics of people with biceps as big as my waist). I'm talking about the numerous subjects that I know nothing about. So I'll just lay it out and be honest hoping no one thinks less of me for lack of what seems to be the fundamentals here.
I don't know anything about a lot of the topics listed here. From backlinking to names of social sites I've never heard of except here, there's a lot to feel small about.
I'll see a post where someone offers advice and mentions going to (I am intentionally not looking these names up so you see what I mean - so sorry to get the name wrong) sites like squebby, or squibly and then borderliscious (I know I'm not even close and I may even be combining two sites with that last one) and so on. It's okay to laugh.
Then apparently I need to be "tweeting people" which I sort of get, (but feel like it's something you could get arrested for by the way it sounds) - and don't I need a smartphone or something to read the tweets on? Should every business be doing this? Isn't it too late to get into the "game"?
I feel like I'm my mom (miss you mom) still trying to say "not" even though that's about fifteen years too late. My wife and I still love our bulky dvd/tape combo. Blu-ray sounds like something that will give me radiation or some kind of mutant power.
So it is with all the different types of ways to drive traffic and stuff.
You know what I mean?
And don't even get me started about bum or marketing or that "butterflies" kind of marketing. (OK, OK...yes I know it's "butterfly" but I'm grumpy from being jealous of the stuff you guys know so I get to poke a little fun). Just how much should I know about that stuff?
I guess I'm not really looking for help there, I know where to go to learn more about those things. And of course I know more than I'm letting on as I'm just trying to make a point, but the truth is, I get intimidated by the extent of knowledge here. It just shows me what I'm missing.
My deal is that I feel overwhelmed with what I don't know sometimes. I know a lot, but apparently not the stuff most of you here do, and I feel like an outsider with a lot of the threads.
But I'm trying! And I'm enjoying the process of learning. But sometimes I just don't want to learn anymore. It's exhausting.
So am I alone here? Should I feel stupid? (Be nice )
