If you scroll down the page and look on the right hand side you’ll notice a button that screams “It’s mapletastic”. That’s right, Blissdom Canada is ‘mapletastic’ and I’m going. I guess as a Canadian I would be mapletastic too but we can get into that another day. It’s actually a little funny that I’ve signed up for a social media/blogger conference as let’s face it
- I’m not that great a social media
- I have a blog and love it but it often gets swept to the side when life happens.
- I’m actually quite shy in real life and am slightly terrified at the notion of meeting people without ‘the job’ to fall back on.
As a minister I get to listen to people’s stories. I don’t have to tell many. I will say that I am a chatty person once I get to know you and I’m sure some people who have met me will think I’m not shy but trust me, I am. I am a shy introvert. I love quiet time alone, it’s where I find my bliss. Doesn’t mean I don’t love people, I just happen to love time away from them too.
Nevertheless, I think this will be an excellent experience. Right now in my life God seems to be calling me into a different type of ministry. I write, I engage people in the community and I just generally exist in my own little world. This new way of ministry could benefit from some assistance in the social media field and networking with other bloggers is never a bad thing. I am excited to learn more about engaging readers and building community. I want to explore where I’m going with the blog and how I do it better.
So now I wait. I wait for 155 days to be exact.
It should be interesting…
