I am currently subscribed via #RSS to 4 or 5 blogs. I read an additional 3-4 per day via Facebook, email, or other networks. It has become part of my morning ritual. Over coffee I begin my day reading stories and seeing photos of friends, colleagues, and strangers' travels around the world (Susie Weekes), technical tips and advice (Bob O'Haver), synopsis of current news (NextDraft), random observations about life and creativity (LaundryLineDivine), updates from far away family, or just cool and interesting tidbits. It's a diverse collection of stuff that is in people's brains shared out loud. I like it.
So each morning I sit at my window in my usual morning fog where I can see and hear the earth wake up with me and I read blogs. Somewhere during 2 cups of coffee and a few blog posts, the fog clears and I feel awake, caught up, inspired, informed, amused, and centered, ready to embark on my own adventures for the day. Then I walk my dog, which is my time to let it all sink in. Quite often on these walks I realize that what I've read stirs an idea or a new perspective that works its way into my own story... #STORY.
That's it. It's all about story. Everyone is just telling their own version of the story. That's what I am all about. That's what Beansprout Productions is all about. We all have a story. It is our stories shared that make the world go round... literally. I suppose the #internet and more specifically #socialnetworking is just our collective story. And, I believe in the power of the #collective. The Evolution of the Collective Conscience is why we are experiencing #socialchange, #socialevolution, #increasedhumanity, #technologicalbreakthrougs, etc. So, maybe I'll start #blogging, sharing #photos, and learning how and when to properly and effectively use #hashtags. This is me #blogging and #hashtagging. Maybe a few people will read it, maybe not. I may or may not know what I'm doing, but I'll #doitanyway. Of course, feedback, suggestions, and advice are welcome. #OffWeGo!
PEACE + LOVE ~ L
