Public Speaking & Blogging

I found PsychoToddler's post this morning to be fascinating. Excerpt:
...And I almost never speak publicly. I hate speaking. I hate bothering other people when they’re trying to socialize. I absolutely have zero confidence than anyone would want to hear anything I have to say about any subject. ...

Of course, it was after the discussion with this fellow, and after another with Fudge, that I realized how unusual the whole circumstance was for me. It was only then that I realized what I had done.

I had treated the whole thing as a blog post. I did what I typically do before writing a post. I mulled it over in my head.
It also brought to mind an old post by Shifra, which is similar but different, but I can't find it.
