Is this a GREAT quote or what?
It is a comment from a reader of this “World Famous” blog…perhaps you know her story?
Shauna James Ahern is a resident of Vashon, WA; making her a local for those of us in the Greater Puget Sound.
Among her media accolades are the following:
1 of 50 best food blogs in the world (The London Times, UK)
1 of Gourmet.com’s favorite food sites in the world
1 of 20 best blogs by and for women in the world (Sunday Telegraph, UK)
1 of the best food blogs in the world, as named by BonAppetit.com, December 2008 (This list was linked to by The New York Times, as well)
Best Food Blog with a Theme in the World, 2005 Food Blog Awards
Notice a theme here?
Local Girl gets Globally Known for Writing about her real life experience and lives to tell about it. Sharing shows caring I say. And she started a wave that continues to resound in the world of food blogging and wellness where gluten intolerance is concerned. The point is she shared herself through the magical and immediate medium of “blogging.”
She wrote her story from a place of passion and conviction and quiet enthusiasm and then it became her livelihood.
Have faith that if you write from that place in you, what you want to support you as your livelihood CAN and WILL.
Our great moments of crises be they about identity or health or relationship or professional life ARE opportunities.
Current communication technologies allow for us to reach more than we may ever know and some who will let us know we touched their lives.
My invitation to all who would hesitate to blog or write of their life and work and learnings is this:
Stretch yourself to be forthcoming.
Keep it real.
It may attract you any number of things. Customers, peers, friends, ambassadors, and unknown opportunities to contribute to someone’s well-being.
What would you say in response if you received a comment like this from a reader?
