Bliss at Blissdom
Over the past 48 hours I have listened, learned and reflected on who I am. More importantly about who I am not. I am a very inclusive person, I will support my fellow blogger and put myself out there. I am not exclusive, I respect all people regardless of their social media ‘cred’.
Catherine Conners @herbadmother ‘s key note address made me think of who I want to be within this sphere. She made literary, global and historical connections to our ever growing & ever changing interface. She asked us to look beyond our selves as singular and as a whole. The mantra we are greater than the sum of all our part resinated with her address.
I will admit I have been blessed, from the fabulous Ottawa network of friends to the larger groups I interact with, my foundation is solid. Wonderful people like Julia, Diana and Mel, they are like minded, positive and get the person I am and appreciate it.
My teaching career is driven by leadership and leading by example. I think it is about time I have the same presence on line. Trolls will be trolls, but maybe those trolls just need a little more understanding or a social media time out. I have never walked a mile in their shoes and as such I do not judge. Thank you to all the in depth conversations, flyby hugs and fellowship. I am honoured to be among the Canadian social media cohort and look forward to our adventures together.
