My Digital Sisterhood book writing journey continues to amaze me. It just gave birth to a new passion and calling called the Digital Sisterhood Leadership Project. What a magical and messy creative process I have! Hold tight for more details on the project! I wanna give you the backstory first.

In an effort to maintain balance and stay on track with my writing, I have decided to pause today since it’s Digital Sisterhood Wednesday and share what’s been happening. Read on … For the past four months my writing journey has invited me to witness and take notes about the powerful ways social media women practice leadership. I had many lightbulb moments about women’s leadership during the BlissDom 2012 Conference in Nashville, Tennessee in February. My BlissDom experience exposed me to a leadership model called “Community Leaders.” The BlissDom founders Alli Worthington and Barbara Jones along with their team created the Community Leaders model so that seasoned bloggers could use their extensive experience to facilitate hands-on, small-group discussions during each session. The Community Leaders also:
- Helped new bloggers and first-time conference attendees navigate the BlissDom experience.
- Offered inspiration and encouragement.
- Shared their blogging wisdom, best practices, and tips.
- Engaged in one-on-one conversations that offered listening ears and brainstorming moments.
- Gave hugs (especially during my Fierce Living from Your Creative Heart workshop).
The role they played was PRICELESS. I call it Digital Sisterhood Leadership, my newfound passion that I will pursue fully in 2013. I say “pursue fully in 2013″ because I am mindful of my need to set boundaries as I take time this year to complete my book.
So what’s next? Drum roll please!!!!
