Nearly every conversation I’ve had over the last several months inevitably comes around to one topic. Community.
Why I build it, what I love about it, how to find it, what to do when it doesn’t work out like you planned. It’s become such a part of my heart and who I am that it’s even taken over this blog. Which is interesting to me, since it’s also the one topic I find it hardest to write about, and yet God keeps asking. God has also put it on my heart to share my knowledge more in this space – lessons learned, attempts failed, how to’s, and FAQs. I’ve been so blessed with friends who have freely poured into my life, and I’m looking forward to seeing how I can pay that forward.
Another thing I’d like to do in this space in 2014 is to take time to introduce new communities in this space, to help you find a place where you feel at home, where you can connect with like-hearted friends. I have a list already in mind that I’m going to use, but I know there are so many, many more wonderful online communities out there.
That’s where you come in. Would you help me? Will you leave a comment with your favorite online communities, especially some I might not already know or talk about in this space? And let me know why you love them, so that next year, together, we can invite others to join us in those spaces!
