I’ll have to admit, I was absolutely overwhelmed at the idea of starting a blog for AE. After all, the web is full of blogs, what would set mine apart? I was worried what sort of content I’d be able to share that people would care about and so began my search. I got so inspired by what I saw, on Tumblr in particular. When I entered words like Charity and Philanthropy, I was so encouraged by what I saw and it’s impact on me was greater than just trying to figure out how I fit on the big bad Internet. People are sharing about how they’re donating both time and money in some amazing ways! It’s easy to get bombarded nowadays by negativity in the media, but when you go looking, people are doing some really amazing things in this world!
I, now, don’t feel so overwhelmed about content. There’s plenty of news to share and people to highlight out there. I’m also excited for what getting to know these people and their stories will bring to AE. I have a strong feeling with how much smaller the world is because of social media, we’re going to make some lasting relationships that will be help AE to continually meet it’s goal create charity events, both online and in the world, that help leave an impact and help make it a better place.
Til next time!
