I really want to go to BookNet Fest but I'm only a viewer with much anxiety who hasn't traveled on her own and will probably end up watching you happy lot from afar wishing I had the courage to introduce myself.
There is no such thing as “only a viewer!” You guys are an important part of the community as well, not just creators. I understand travel and social anxiety, so I understand if you can’t make it. But I’d hate for you to miss getting to meet like-minded people. Many people in the community have anxiety, so you aren’t alone :) It sounds like you are trying to talk yourself into it, and if that ends up being the case, I’d love to meet you! xo
