Never be afraid of a good idea
My lesson for the week: Talking to people is good.
As you'll know from my last post, I'm midway through a Blogging Your Way course at the moment, and as a result my mind is constantly whirring with new ideas. In the course, Holly Becker talks about the way that opening up to new possibilities and opportunities as a blogger can really broaden your horizons. And it's true, of course. I met up with Andrew from Grow Garden Care in Hildenborough yesterday for a wonderfully civilised afternoon tea - as a fellow blogger I was keen to bounce ideas around and compare notes on how blogging works for businesses. And as a result, we've hatched some really interesting ideas, which I hope to be able to share soon. If we'd kept ourselves to ourselves and not dared to share ideas, these opportunities wouldn't have happened.
So this week, I urge you to share your ideas. Even the ones you think are a bit dusty and lacking in potential. Share them with someone. It can be a colleague, friend, your partner... heck, it can even be your dog if that's who's around (dogs make excellent listeners). But do it. The first step in making that fledgling idea a reality is to give it wings by sharing it with someone.
