Best Social Anxiety Blogs
Social anxiety blogs are usually written either by people living with social anxiety themselves or by mental health professionals (who sometimes also have social anxiety).
I’ve created a list of 10 social anxiety blogs that I think are worth checking out!
How might you benefit from following and reading these blogs?
Hearing other stories similar to yours will make you feel less alone. These bloggers also offer tips on how to overcome social anxiety. So let’s have a look.
Kel is the voice behind Anxious Lass and she writes from across the pond. Her site has been around for a while now and it’s filled with lots of helpful articles.
She writes about her own experience with social anxiety and how she has managed to overcome it. She also talks about how being a blogger has helped her social anxiety.
Nicole Kim is a student writing about her experiences with social anxiety and how she works to overcome it at Nico Mochi.
What I like best about her blog is the step-by-step instructions on how to work through anxious thoughts and get back on track to improving your social anxiety.
Okay Now Breathe
Meagan is the blogger behind Okay Now Breathe, where she writes about social anxiety, self-love, and neato things like pulling oracle cards!
If your social anxiety is tied to a struggle to love yourself, I absolutely recommend reading Meagan’s blog.
Shy Mommy Life
Leanne is a mom talking about how she manages shyness and social anxiety as a new mother at Shy Mommy Life.
If you are a mother with social anxiety, this is the blog for you! You’ll relate to her struggles as a mom and find solace in the fact that you are not the only one.
Marla Genova is best known as the girl who walked through Disney World wearing a t-shirt that said, “Ask me about my social anxiety!”
Who could be a better source of wisdom on social anxiety than someone with the courage to pull that off?
Also, if your particular struggle is speaking or performance anxiety, you’ll be happy to know that is one of Marla’s specialties. She offers coaching services and has in the past run stage fright workshops.

And I also know about Chris’ awesome site/blog Succeed Socially.
This is the site for you if your main concern is your social skills and also wanting to preserve your “personality” or not “selling out” while still finding your way with people.

She’s also a good resource for all things showing up scared.
And if you love books, she runs a book club through Patreon dedicated to exploring books to help the socially anxious and awkward.
What if you really just want to challenge yourself and get out there?
You’ll love the attitude on Roxana’s blog, Honest Rox where she talks candidly about her own struggles and how she pushes through them.
She ran a fun 21-day challenge earlier this year that we played along with inside the Living Fully with Social Anxiety Facebook group that I run.
Social Anxiety Institute

This site is run by Dr. Thomas Richards, who not only overcame social anxiety himself, but started this amazing business helping others do the same.
The Institute offers an

You just need to commit a few weeks and be willing and open to put in the work.

Here are some of my favorite social anxiety tools
Thanks for reading! I hope you found some helpful tips. Since this site is about social anxiety, I wanted to also share some tools I use that I hope you’ll find helpful. Some of these are affiliate links, so if you decide to try them, I’ll earn a commission. However, I only recommend things I have used myself and would recommend to a friend or family member.
Online Therapy: For online therapy, I have personally used and like the service offered by Betterhelp. It's easy to get started from the comfort of your home. You'll even get a discount on your first month of therapy when you use my link.
Doctor Visits: For doctor visits, Web Doctors offers convenient online appointments.
Audible Subscription: I recommend a lot of self-help books on this site, but I actually prefer an audiobook subscription over print books! My favorite subscription service is Audible because it has all the best-sellers and they stay in your digital library forever (even if you end your subscription). You can sign up for a free trial and listen to your first two books for free.
Social Anxiety Masterclass: The Social Anxiety Masterclass is my signature course where I walk you through everything I know about how to manage social anxiety. If you're not ready to enroll in the course, be sure to subscribe to my email newsletter to hear about special deals!
