I realized something the other day. At the end of September, Puttylike is going to be 4 years old (!!)
For one thing, I can’t believe that I have stuck with anything for this long (heh). But in all honesty, running Puttylike has not only been continuously exciting, it’s been an absolute joy.
And you know why it’s felt so rewarding? Well yes, I get to do many things in service of my work, it’s a Renaissance Business, provides me with variety, yada yada… But mostly, running Puttylike for four years has been so rewarding because of YOU.
You, the multipotentialite community, have continuously inspired and pushed me. Puttylike wouldn’t be what it is without your love, support, participation, collaboration and word-spreading. I am so incredibly grateful and I can’t believe how many amazing people I’ve had the honour of interacting with and becoming friends with these past few years. Thank you.
With that said, in honour of Puttylike’s 4th birthday, we’re going to do something big…
Announcing PUTTYFEST (Sept 23-25)
From September 23-25, you, I and our whole community are going to take over the web. The point of Puttyfest is to both celebrate our multipotentiality and spread the word to help increase social-awareness and acceptance of multipotentialites.
Here’s how it’ll work:
1. If you have a blog or website
- Publish a blog post about how being a multipotentialite has enriched your life. You can tell a story or use whatever structure you like.
- Schedule your post to go live on September 23rd or 24th and be sure to link back to this post in your post. That way I will get a “ping” and be notified that you’ve written a post for Puttyfest.
- On Sept 25th, I will publish a blog post on Puttylike that includes a list of all of the posts you guys have published, and links back to your sites.
2. Tweet it
From September 23-25, lets make the Twitterverse notice us. Use the hashtag #puttyfest to meet and connect with your fellow multipods. Share the things you love most about being a multipotentialite and meet some new people who “get it.”
3. Wear it!
Puttyfest seems like the perfect time to unveil our beautiful new screen-printed, Multipotentialite shirts.
A word of caution. These shirts will absolutely make people stop and say “cool shirt! Umm, what’s a multipotentialite?” So you’d better be prepared to be out and proud about your multipotentiality. :)
There are only 100 shirts (of various sizes) that are printed and will be available to order during Puttyfest.
Mark it on Your Calendar
Puttyfest runs from September 23-25. Be sure to mark it on your calendar, so you don’t miss out on all the festivities.
I truly can’t wait to celebrate with you! Lets show the world what it means to be a multipotentialite and why we’re proud.
p.s. There will be a few other surprises during Puttyfest, including prizes and some sweet discounts. More info coming soon.
