A Friend reminded me this week about the amazing journey we have been on since joining Google + just over a year ago. I remember being overwhelmed at the community of creative people here and how we all connected and encouraged one another. I met +Barry Blanchard
and +Sandra Parlow
in my very first hangout. I overcame my fear and met two truely sincere friends. I have been in hundreds since and I have to say they are the most rewarding part of the experience here aside from meeting these new friends in real life (IRL). I Met my friend Sandra this past summer in Toronto and God willing will get to meet Barry IRL as soon as I am able.
Now Barry, Sandra and myself have had a great time growing "community" here on G+ and have had what some might consider unusual success on this network of like minded people, but I really must say, it has been because of the level of sincere interaction and a desire to see everyone have as amazing an experience as we, and so many others, have had.
If your new here, don't be shy, leave a comment or two, and engage with others you find interesting. You will be surprised at how engaging folks here can be. And when you can, join a hangout and get to know people just a little better. This IS an amazing place that goes beyond borders and cultures and connects us in ways no other network ever has.
So Thank you for circling me, and engaging with me and enriching my life!
