Don't just live in the world

What now?

August 18th, 2010 | Posted by Amy Boughner in Issues | Personal

While the BlogHer conference was happening in New York I tried to follow along with all the women I knew who were there. One of the things that caught my eye was a few people I follow on Twitter using the hashtag #changeagents.

It’s a concept I’ve heard of before, but I had no idea that BlogHer had planned a track at this year’s conference about it. If I had known there is a good chance I would have desperately wanted to be there.

I blog, I tweet, I get out and meet people. I talk politics and I talk babies and I talk about me, me, me. I haven’t really defined myself in the online world, though I fall more and more into the category of Mommy blogger (which isn’t a bad thing, considering I’m a mom with a blog), but I do want to use my voice.

There are a lot of issues I am passionate about and I have blogged about some of them in the past as things come up, but I don’t consistently fight for what I believe in in any forum. I need to decide if there is anything that I care deeply enough about to expose myself to cruel comments from people who don’t know anything about my situation.

I’ve always wanted to make a difference, it’s part of the reason I’ve followed the path that’s brought me here, but what’s next?
