Welcome to my little corner of the internet – the Hermit Hut! It’s usually just me in here, but it does get lonely. So, I decided to hang a shingle and invite you all in.
I’m a lifelong introvert, though I’m not officially a hermit – yet. It’s not that I mind being outside – it’s the people. And most people are nice, don’t get me wrong, but people are sometimes (most times) mentally and emotionally exhausting for me. I’m just not built to be sociable and ‘on’ all the time. I need time to recharge my batteries, and for me, that means time alone.
The last few years have been great, because my kids are in school and I have a part-time job that forces me to get out of the house. So I get time to socialize, to work, and I still get to have a lot of alone time, which suits me just fine.
I started this blog because I wanted to share my journey – both in living life as an introvert and starting my online business. One of the possible changes coming in my life is a more nomadic lifestyle, and so I wanted a way to connect with people and to have a decently stable job that I could do from pretty much anywhere. (I decided to start a sticker shop on Etsy, in case you’re wondering.)
So, come along and watch me fail! Because that’s when you learn – when you fall flat on your face and have to pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again. There’ll be plenty of failures here and plenty of laughs (not all at my expense, I hope). Let’s all laugh and learn together and, again, welcome to the Hut!
