Finding my voice … again

The more time on spend writing and posting on the web, the more I come to realize what I have to say is one voice in a symphony of millions.  I’m ok with that relative obscurity. I’ve found many opportunities to express myself online and am fortunate to have met so many interesting people along the way.  I know I’m not alone.  There are thousands of bloggers  having thousands of conversations every day.

Over the past year, I’ve been thinking about where I want to have those conversations, where I want to join in a community and keeping it all real. What part of my voice should SPEAK UP and be heard? Do I continue to write here about social media, arts administration and marketing? Do I go gangbusters on my newest blog – Sing of Happy?  Do I write for other blogs like the Coastal Sound Music tour blog and the Reinventing M Network? Do I rejenvate the website where I firsted “blogged” with hardcoded HTML photo sharing back in 1998? Do I start over and finally put into action?  Its very likely I’ll do some of the above but to tell you the truth, I’m undecided. 

Quite by accident, I stumbled across the Parent Bloggers Unite (#PBUYVR) meetup that’s happening Friday evening at 6Pack Beach in Richmond.   Many of my favourite writers will be there – Rebecca Coleman, Meghan Simington and Kerry Sauriol among others as well as some new-to-me bloggers I’m looking forward to meeting. [Shout out to Eschelle Westwood and Raj Thandhi.] 

I feel good about my decision to go to this meetup and I’m looking forward to some new perspectives on blogging and taking another step on the journey to find my own voice…again.

    Angela, the ladies that I have teamed up with at PBU who I now consider my dearest friends are truly part of my journey in blogging and social media. Blogging is such a huge part of my world and feeling it evolve and change is a lot less scary when you have friends holding your hand! We had a blast at our first event and this one looks like even more fun. See you later

      You’ve hit a key point, Kerry … trust. So many “social media events” are fabricated these days and it drives me crazy. Yet I trust in your judgement and so I have faith that tonight’s event will be worthwhile and fun. See you in a few hours!
