Quick new article. Give the exercises a shot though. I vouch for them personally:

I put together a little form that will allow readers to easily report any typos they find on the site. I do my best to triple-check everything I write, but despite all that I find it’s all too easy to be blind to my own mistakes while proofreading. Hopefully this will help catch some of the errors.
Much appreciation in advance for anyone who takes the time to help out in this way.

I made some revisions to two articles on facing your social fears:
This one I generally re-worded to make it easier to read. More importantly, I added a section explaining how the principles of gradual exposure often can’t be applied to social fears in a clean, ‘textbook’ way.
This one is mostly the same, though I added a section at the beginning emphasizing the importance of addressing any maladaptive thinking you have towards your social fears before you try facing them. If you don’t, you’ll tend to interpret the exposures in a way that can end up making you feel even more anxious and discouraged.
