At the beginning of September, I set out to write one blog post per day for the entire month. With this final post, I have succeeded (woohoo!). As a result of my little challenge, Introvert Spring’s visitors more than tripled over the past 30 days. What started out as a humble blog is now an online community.
Online communities have the power to connect people through both their differences and their shared truths. They offer support, inspiration and a sense of belonging to something larger than ourselves. For introverts, they are a wonderful vehicle for sharing what we might feel ill-equipped to share face-to-face.
As a reader of my posts, you have helped build this community. Thank you for being part of the journey. I hope you will come along for the rest of the ride.
I realize that you might not have had the chance to read all thirty of the posts I wrote this month. In case you missed them, here is a round-up of the most popular posts from Super September:
Why Introverts Hate Talking on the Phone

“Progress is impossible without change, and those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.” ~George Bernard Shaw
Connecting with all of you through my writing has been a truly enriching experience. For this reason, I will continue writing new introvert blog posts every Monday and Wednesday. I will also be producing brand new memes and introvert infographics for your viewing pleasure. Expect to see more site improvements and positive changes as well.
In other news, I’m very excited to announce that I will be publishing an introvert ebook in mid-October. The book will be available for free to my subscribers. Stay tuned for more info.
We all in the same boat.
I started and run an online community of introverts under Introverts Network Asia. At one stage 2 years ago, we had over 5,000 followers over various platforms. We ran onsite meeting and stopped when Covid19 hit us in March 2020. To manage them better, we started channelling our limited resources to a Facebook group, currently with only 1400 members. I used to think because introverts preferred not to meet face to face, that this was ideal for them to interact. Somehow, it’s as quiet as we are known to be. Next week, INA will be celebrating its 9th birthday. We have 30 people signed up. It takes a lot to sustain. I take full responsibility for the lack of engagement and interaction. Wondering if we should call it a day after our 10th birthday in May 2023.
