In the beginning, there was Little Me.
Little Me had a small website and a tiny blog. And no clue what to do with it.
Enter Twitter. Grand Entrance Blissdom.
Witness the community circle, pet her hair, compliment (despite an utter lack of worthiness) and offer to help.
Help? What’s that?
Advice, Friendship, community, passion and understanding.
And that was last year.
This year? Trumped all that.
Not because it was bigger – though it was.
Not because it was fancier – though it was.
Not because I knew people – though I did.
Not because I understand more – though I do.
But because this is now my world. I belong here – and it is these women, the women I first met last year, the ones I talk to on Twitter and skype and text…..the ones I JUST met this weekend….it is THEM. The ones who still wrap me in the snuggie version of community and hug me until I realize I am not the only hugger in the world. They share until I can say SEO and know what it means…until I understand WHY I need to make changes to my blog…until I welcome every smile, every everything.
Over the course of the next week, I will share more about this experience. It deserves more than one post….it deserves video, writing and screens with links to people you should visit.
Because that is BLISS to me.
