It’s been a short year filled with long days.
Last April I launched Blogstar, a community I treasure where everyone can be heard and good work is rewarded. Along the way I’ve met so many inspiring, creative, smart and driven people through the Interwebs, and been lucky enough to work with a good few over the past year. I’ve also spent my time tinkering with Kirtsy and tailoring justb. My sweet spot, however, is building stuff: websites, communities, audiences, action, adventure; and that’s what I’ve been doing mainly with Blogstar but it has come to a point where it needs a bigger platform than I have to offer. A nice problem to have. So I needed to find What’s Next for both it and me.
Hello Morra Aarons-Mele and The Mission List.
I met Morra through one of the those people I describe above; the founder of Jack Cards, Katherine Santer, while working on a Jack Cards program via Blogstar. Morra and I met, fell in what-if love and have now partnered to take Blogstar to its What’s Next by connecting it to The Mission List’s cause for good and its access to people, places and partnerships.
Blogstar will soon be able to shine as an active community on The Mission List’s website where its members — past, present and future — will be able to connect, collaborate and make an income making a difference through paid-for social campaigns powered by The Mission List.
I’m going to spend the next 3 months helping you all to move in and will stay on as an advisor to The Mission List because who wouldn’t want to be part of that.
Hello Maggie Mason, Laura Mayes and Mighty.
Attending the Mighty Summit last year was a life changing experience for me. I still carry in my wallet the five life goals I committed to crossing of my list, all of which I have started and a couple I’ve completed. I already knew Laura but it was at Mighty Summit that I got to know Maggie better and this Spring we got to talking about how to add another layer to Mighty Girl, Mighty Summit and Camp Mighty that helps people connect, accomplish their goals and do something good for the community at the same time. That’s going to be my What’s Next, and I hope you will be there, too.
