A Red Rose for RuckusMaker Day!
Thanks to Seth Godin tomorrow marks the first annual RuckusMaker Day!
Tomorrow would have been Steve Jobs‘ 60th birthday and Seth describes his contribution as “having a point of view”.
He also explains that having a point of view and scheduling a time and place to say something is almost certainly going to improve your thinking, your attitude and your trajectory – and that a great way to do it is by blogging!
Today also marks the start of Social Media Week. My fellow flower-loving blogger Joyce Sullivan will be speaking at the conference in New York City too. What a great time to be inspired to blog!
I have a point of view – as you do and blogging certainly does give me the opportunity to share it with the world. While I share I also grow. I share about the things I care about it.
I share because I can’t help myself but get excited about the amazing experiences and people that life has brought my way.
I also read other blogs. I enjoy reading the tales that others have to tell.
Spoken-word poet Sarah Kay was stunned to find she couldn’t be a princess, ballerina and astronaut all in one lifetime. In her TED talk, she delivers two powerful poems that show us how we can live other lives.
When Sarah spoke about only being able to lead one life she captured the essence of why I love listening to people tell me their stories. These stories then often move me to write and often to take action to help others make a ruckus.
Naming this blog Fables and Flora was a chance to combine my passions of floral photography with stories I hear, see or read about or experience myself.
So enjoy the first RuckusMaker Day tomorrow! I would love to hear your stories about what you did!
As Seth says: Speak up. Not just tomorrow, but every day.
