Recently I posted about reconnecting to a part of myself that I thought I had lost. One of the things that I had lost was my sense and ability, my sensability as it were, to really be involved in community with wonderfully witty, snarky, bright, and intelligent folk such as Le Clown from A Clown On Fire and Dotty Headbanger from Notes from a She-Hermit. What happened next has been quite the roller coaster ride and through that one post, I have come to find many other wonderful and interesting bloggers from all over the world with varied interests and challenges. The following contains just a few examples:
and so many, many others. Look them up here, where Dear Dotty has created a space for us all to find and be found.
However, so much more has happened as a result of the overflowing cornucopia of likes and follows I received. I found Kristen Lamb’s blog and found out about a new social networking site for creatives called WANATribe. WANA stands for We Are Not Alone and is where I have already made some wonderful new friends and engaged in actual conversation via the main chat room and gotten a chance to read excerpts and synopses of pre-published works in progress by up and coming authors. I’ve met a Nerdfighter and learned about the movement against world suck and witnessed beautiful and creative photography.
Here’s a sample list of my newest friends’ blogs:
I’ve found so many interesting blogs to read and follow I don’t think I’ll ever catch up. More importantly, I’m rediscovering excitement and playfulness and the creativity that lives inside of me, that I thought life had killed a long time ago. Turns out it was a banked and smoldering coal waiting to be uncovered and given oxygen and fuel to grow again.
Come catch the spark, you know you WANA!
