I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do with this site. I have some definite ideas about what I want it to be, and I have some definite ideas about what I do NOT want it to be.
Sure, I want it to be a site for helping people with the written word. I want to help people better communicate.
But I also want a place of positivity.
My love is for anything arts and entertainment oriented. I love the written word. I love music. I love art. I love design. And I love positive stories about people impacting their communities and their world in positive ways.
Don’t get me wrong. I do care about current events and even politics, but I have come to the conclusion that there are plenty of news sites available to people, and there are plenty of sites where they can get their fill of politics – local, state, national, and international. So…that is not part of my mission in terms of what I want to present to the world.
What I do want to present to the world is hope and affirmation. There are far more good things going on in the world than bad things, and because we are bombarded with all the bad news and the divisiveness of politics, we often lose sight of the good.
So…this is where I need your help.
Send to me your ideas about what you would like to read about.
I want to write about music, and art, and community events. These are the things that make life good for all of us.
If you have a favorite regional band, tell me about them and I’ll interview them, go to one of their gigs, and try to give them some exposure that might help them reach the next level in their careers. The same is true for artists, and crafts people. I also want to know about the positive things going on in your community. I want to know about the fundraisers for good causes. Maybe I can help make them a little bit more successful.
And eventually, this enterprise might even make money! I’m always looking for talent and people with a positive attitude, because I think when we combine our work, our talents, and our spirits, good things will happen. Eventually I will be looking for people who share my vision and want to advertise with me. And I will be looking for people to sell advertising for this site.
I am a huge believer in the idea that none of us is in this life alone. When we are blessed with success, it’s time to help someone else also achieve success, not just in their business, but in their life.
The most important thing you can do for me now is to like and share my site. That is how it will grow.
I believe in growth through people power, and you all are my people!
Go forth and spread hope, cheer and good things in your communities, and then tell me about it!
I love stories with happy endings!
