A few weeks before SXSW I was invited to speak on a panel at the yPulse Mashup conference. It will be on July 16th – 17th and I’m gonna miss it. I’m gonna miss the opportunity to speak and tell people about this little site I’m a part of. I’m gonna miss the experience of another conference and the chance to go to San Francisco. Anastasia, thanks for the opportunity and I’m sorry I can’t go.
Lately I’ve also missed out on blogging. I make excuses like “I’m busy” or “I’ll do it later” and it never happens. I write what’s on my mind, save it for later and then delete it. In reality I’ve written a lot lately I just haven’t shared it. I’ve been holding back, censoring what I post and I don’t know why. After all, this blog is what opened up so many opportunities for me and so it only makes sense that I write more often, for the opportunities.
The opportunities looking for me have had to look harder lately, and many that have found me have been turned down.
Be easy to find. It’s better to turn down a good opportunity then to never have it.
Sorry you wonâ€™t be there, wouldâ€™ve liked to hear you speak.
