Hi everyone. I signed up a little while ago but failed to introduce myself. I've been active in online communities for over 10 years, but I still feel like a newbie. My favorite part of online community building is that it allows my introvert to be an extrovert.

Hi Piper and everyone here 👋🏼

I also failed to introduce myself a while ago and reading your intro gave me some courage to say hello as well. I think I’ll never not feel like a newbie in a new community either, but it always shifts to a positive feeling after rolling with it for a bit.

Haha, I love that and will steal it! I've got pretty chronic stage fright and find networking events pretty intimidating, but find Zoom much easier to do both.

Hi Piper,

I'm completely new to community building, so what should I think about my self (if you still feel like a newbie). I think I'm an introvert too: I have very few real friends with whom I can be for hours, I was never the kind of persons who knows everyone in his quarter, but I don't have struggles talking to strangers (I think I enjoy talking, but I don't enjoy being in the center of attention). Do you think this compatible with community building?
