Amy’s First Blog – Examples of Possibility
I am online and exposed!! 😉 What a month of getting out of the comfort zone!
Today marks a big day for me – this is one of the things I said I would never do – blogging. Oh wait, I said I would never run a half marathon too… hmmm! Note to self: NEVER say NEVER
Kelly Olexa (@KellyOlexa) and I met each other on twitter and her blog was really the foundation on why I reached out at some events and talked to her. We aren’t exactly alike. Infact we are quite different in many ways. But we were both ourselves and having a great time.
Just meeting one great friend on twitter made me think twice about this public domain and start getting back into it this April. Now I have met 100x the great people (Love my #runnerds!) and I can’t imagine how I would continue to grow and evolve without it.
So today I reflect on examples of possibilities…. I was one for Kelly to quit soda and start running and she was one for me to start a blog and revisit how I connect online. We both have grown and become stronger better women and friends by learning from the other’s examples. Imagine if you just did that with one new person a month. This makes me think of an amazing conversation I had with Liz (@LizStrauss) that reminded me that we each have something unique to bring and offer and to stop searching how to connect because the uniqueness that is me, IS my niche and my passion.
Thanks for offering me a platform for being me and would love to hear what your favorite platforms/sites/blogs for learning have been!
