A wheel takes shape - Response to Chicks Who Click 09
you guys you guys. ok. so i've used this blog and other social media apps ( flickr, twitter beta and never used it, myspace, facebook) as a means of: 1. creative inspiration and sharing my creativity so i didn't keep it precious, b. connecting in a general way, and 3. challenging my boundaries (understanding why and what i wanted to publicly share and what i wanted to keep private). i get excited about technology and am often one to jump into the sandbox. as you can see on this blog, daily updates have never been a priority - last post was this summer?!
i've known the power of social media, but after the Chicks Who Click conference in Boulder i have a better understanding of what tools to use for what purpose. i met amazing women who are mapping and shaping social media and who know what questions to ask ourselves so that we play in a sandbox that gives us the highest amount of return - personally and ideally financially too.
i live in a beautiful but small mountain resort town and love it. I just bought a place in Avon and am definitely invested. but it's also challenging to fulfill ones potential in a small place. you know how all the spokes on a wheel join in the middle? that's what this weekend did for me: connected all my spokey ideas into a wheel.
so i've got some plans, a lot of work to do, and i hope you'll be part of it.
it will be a process so will be sharing details soon.
hope you're all doing well! I'll leave you with this info from Michelle Obama, in case you haven't heard about it yet.
