Are You Ready for the Biggest Week in Multipotentialite History?

Are You Ready for the Biggest Week in Multipotentialite History?

Topics: Puttyfest, Updates

Greetings multipotentialites!

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.

  1. Will definitely support the event! :) How I wish I can hangout with fellow multipotentialites in the future!

  2. Raffy Longno says:

    Haven’t joined the Puttytribe yet but I’ll support this 100%. Gotta mark the date.

    • Emilie says:

      Hey Raffy,

      No worries at all if you aren’t in the Tribe. This is meant to be a public/open event. So, it’s for everyone here on the blog and in the broader Puttylike community, not just members of the Puttytribe.

      I would love to have you involved! :)

  3. Em says:

    Lovely ideas! I’m already putting some thoughts for the blog post together. Will be great to go through the list then.

  4. Nela says:

    Yaaay, I’m so on it! I’ve already written on this topic on my blog, but I guess you can never run out of things to say on this topic ;)

  5. E.K. Carmel says:

    Wonderful idea! I’m going to get started writing my blog post. So excited to be a part of this!

  6. Adrienne says:

    This sounds like a great event. I will definitely participate. I new to your blog but I have to say once finding out about it and reading your story it feels like a breath of fresh air.. I literally said out like “she gets it” Looking forward to connecting with everyone during this event.

  7. Paula says:

    Hey Emilie. I’m working on my post right now. I look forward to reading what others write and getting the word out to my followers and clients, many who are multipotentialites.

  8. Paula says:

    Hey Emilie. I’m not sure how the pingback works so wanted to be sure you got the link to my post for the fest. Just sent it out this morning. Happy festing!! http://rainforestmind.wordpress.com/2014/09/23/gifted-adults-multipotentiality/

  9. Amy V says:

    Of course, I just saw this today! I’ll have to see if I can get a post put together in the next couple of days. :) Maybe a good lead article for the newsletter I promised myself I’d get out. One thing I’ve had to learn as I accept my multipotentiality stuff is that to hit all my interests, I’ve got to repurpose material if I want to keep my sanity.

  10. Maria Mar says:

    Hi Emily,

    Done! I just published my story as a multipotentialite and Renaissance Woman. I hope that you get the pinback. Great idead! Lots of luck!

  11. Joanne Chen says:

    Hi, Emily. I don’t have a blog yet but I will post a link back to this page on my Facebook page.

    Cheers,

    Joanne

  12. Em says:

    Same like others, I don’t trust technology :) To be sure, I just posted http://phoenixrise.cz/being-a-multipod/. Looking forward to what others wrote!

    Hi Emily! I’m absolutely agree with your conference about multipotentiality people. I’m one of them and althought I’m fine with myself (I’m a confidence person), I’m worried. This is my last year in the secondary school, so I have to choose a career! I’m not going to study just one thing but I have to start with someone. The problem is that I don’t know how I should organize my studies. I would like to do a lot of things, I love the knowledge. I can’t imagine myself doing the same work whole my life. I have been trying to find the intersection between my interests but the results that I got aren’t enough for me. I would appreciate if you help me with some advices and ideas. The things that I like are psycology, philosophy, all types of art (drawing, photography, literature, music, etc), history, maths, ecology, sociology, political sciences, international relations and the study of foreign languages. What’s more I obsses with the perfection. I’m always trying to instruct to do the best with the thing that I want to do. I love to plan all things. My brother wants that I finish this with the expresión: “I’m a book worm”. Yours Faithfully, Camila.

    Hi!!!! I just joined today! I’m from Argentina and I ‘ll definitely support it!!.
    xoxo
