Building a community

Forgive me for the short entry today. I’ve spent most of the day proof-reading and correcting a 60-odd page document and my brain is now quite fried.

My fractious state has, however, motivated me to write this entry, which I’ve been thinking about for quite some time: I want to grow the shape of things to come.

It has always been my intention to connect with like-minded people through this blog: to share knowledge and enthusiasm, inspire each other and build something bigger than ourselves. Through multiple voices we can learn and accomplish more than with just me on my virtual soap-box. I want to build an online community, a place to make sustainability a shared conversation, grounded in respect, understanding and factual information, and I’d like your help to make that possible.

I’m pestering other people into writing pieces to share here: guest posts to share specific skills, passions and outlooks and regular contributors to share their own personal journeys.

Together I believe we can grow this place into something quite special: a shared resource to help build the kind of future we’d like to see.

Come and join the conversation!

If you’d like to write a guest post, collaborate, suggest future topics or provide constructive feedback on the blog in general, please leave a comment below or send an email to <shapeofthingstoni@gmail.com>. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Hi Toni, I was under the weather this week and didn’t get started on writing anything. We have a spinning conference this weekend, but I promise to write something for you next week!

    • That would be fantastic Van, thank you! There’s no rush, really. I liked your idea for a blog exchange and was wondering if you had a topic in mind for me to write about.

      Cheers,
      T.

  2. I will be no good at writing posts for the site, but I would love to have your badge on my blog if you have one? Check out the ones down my right hand sidebar to see what i mean.

    • Hi Kate! I don’t know, I think everyone has something interesting to offer to the conversation. We’re all at different places in life and have our own experiences to share. 🙂

      I did make a badge thingy, though it’s not very good (photo-shoppery isn’t in my skill set): [a href=”http://shapeofthingstocome.org”][img src=”http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7077/7320001326_6d799b66bd_o.jpg”]
