“A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships were built for.” –John A. Shedd
So much is happening in the next couple of podcast episodes that I am afraid of not having the time to send out this message of gratitude, so I’m going to do it here for posterity in case I forget to ever mention it again.
Sharing my writing with an Internet full of relative strangers is intimidating and daunting. Sharing my writing with a network of family and friends, like the people I actually know in real life, is beyond terrifying, and that’s what I’ve done over this past week.
I outed myself as a podcaster and invited my personal network to hear my writing. Like everyone. Work colleagues from three jobs ago, old Girl Scout leaders, even guys I’ve had the occasional date with. I made myself send it to everyone. Because I am too old and too wise to let fear stop me.
The feedback has been tremendous and uplifting, and I am so grateful for all of the messages of support. Every like, every download, every share, and every word of encouragement has meant the world to me. I hope you’ll keep listening. I hope you’ll stay in touch with the show. But mostly I want to thank everyone for their support. No one does anything like this alone.
Tomorrow I will post the bio of our first (not our last) contributor! I’m so excited about what is coming. Stay tuned!
