I don't know if anyone has noticed that I've been quiet for a while.
There are many reasons but the main one is that I'm set to host an (in)RL Meet-up at my home on Saturday, April 27th.
Do you know the back story to the (in)RL Meet-up? Instead of the website (in)courage planning a conference and women having to travel to one specific location, their idea is to have hosts sign up and meet in their locale. This happens mostly in homes but if large enough crowds sign up then they figure out a more amenable venue such as their church.
As I'm writing this the numbers are 1,591 women have signed up in 497 cities. These aren't all U.S. cities either. Amazing!
It's an opportunity to view videos covering this year's theme of "The Challenge to Stay in Community."
Last year I waited for someone to volunteer to host a Meet-up in my area.
It never happened.
So this year I decided to volunteer to host and not miss out on the opportunity to meet women in my area for this event.
This is a big deal for me personally because I'm opening of my home to really eight strangers.
In anticipation of the Meet-up I've been cleaning my home....you know the nooks and crannies where dust bunnies lurk and I've even gone outside to battle my amazing weed collection.
That is a benefit to hosting....the house will be cleaner looking than it's been for a while. Ha!
Are you comfortable opening your home to strangers?
