There are some truly excellent bloggers who have written on the subject of being introverted or on the intricacies of becoming more social. This here is a list of some favorite posts that have already helped me as I’ve begun my Month of Social Magic. I’m completely open to more social-related resources, so if you know someone who’s written about this subject eloquently (or if that someone is you), do let me know.
The Introvert’s Guide to Spontaneous Departures. Oh, heavens. Kelly writes good stuff. And in such a fanciful way. This post makes social gatherings less daunting for us introverts, because it reminds us that we can leave when we need to. It also tells us the best way to go about doing that.
The Secret to Becoming Fearless by Patty K. This post is actually one of the things that started me thinking about doing this month of being social.
15 Ways to Make a Righteous First Impression. These are some fantastic ideas that I think we introverts could apply subtly, while extroverts might really run with them.
How to Create an Amazing Group of Friends, from travel and social extraordinaire Sara Von.
It’s Not Over ‘Til You’re Cold and Dead. How’s that for a title? This one isn’t specifically about being social, but it is about taking risks and realizing the power you have to change things.

And with that, it’s time for me to go solidify my weekend plans. I’ll be back next week with updates on my trials, tribulations and (hopefully) big, huge successes. Hugs and smooches.
