And on that note...I would like to pose a bit of a question for you. My friend said something kind of funny to me today. She is familiar with my Blog and my work of course.She thinks my ideas are good and considers me a very creative person. She thinks it is NOT smart to share my ideas in such a public platform. She thinks I am giving IT away. Although I know this comes from a good place , it TOTALLY STOPPED ME IN MY TRACKS. What?! even My 2 year old will tell you SHARING IS GOOD!
I know the Blog world if full of people...very creative people.They share, they inspire and are inspired by their blog circles. I know my predicament is a little more complicated because I am financially tied to my creativity. However I don't feel like I am wrong in sharing. Outside of my clients and a few friends that can tolerate me talking about kids parties and ideas there is only this blog. It has become a part of my every day ( a good part..not like the dishes!) I started this blog to showcase my work and it's become much more than that. My dreams are bigger now: I would like to some day be a REAL authority in the field of children's event planning. You know, get published in a fancy Mag, maybe a book deal or two ( BIG dreams, I know) and how do I have a shot at realizing those dreams if can't reach people like YOU?!
So be honest..is it not wise to share?
AKA: sad kids party planner that thought it was "cool" to share:(
