I wanted to create a place where professional storytellers could "hang out" in a professional yet fun environment, a place where we could come to share ideas, lean on each other for support, and build camaraderie and community. I look forward to hearing about how you found this site - through a friend, through NSN, through Storyteller.net, through Tim Ereneta, through STORYTELL, from an invitation by me?
I would like for more professional storytellers to join the site so that we can really make an impact. Please invite your friends too!
I saw your notice on storytell, immediately checked it out, then immediately signed on - it's grown so quickly, even I am excited at the prospects, so I can imagine how pleased you must be.
I thoroughly enjoy seeing the faces of lots of folks I've "met" thru storytell, and their blogs and discussions are informative, entertaining, revealing, moving and, sometimes, laugh-out-loud funny - it is very encouraging.
I'm happy that I was/am member #7, if we're counting in sequence - makes me look like a perty smart cookie - I mean, this site is awesome and is getting bigger'n better all the time. So, congratulations on a significant contribution to our storytelling world - as Minnie Pearl was wont to say, "I'm jus so proud to be heah!"
Keep on keepin' on, Kiddo -
"You'da Man!" (......erhmmmmm - you know what I mean, right? Has nothing to do w/ you and Buck's video, it's just a saying that . . . OK, look - if it's a problem, have your people contact my people and we'll go from there......)
You are both so kind. I am just glad that y'all joined the party! I look forward to seeing this site grow and seeing how storytellers can take advantage of its platform. Glad to see you both took the initiative to start a group and that you are embracing the technology. So many storytellers are afraid of change - afraid of something new. That's why there are only 57 people here instead of 357!! There should be so many more flocking to this site. I mean it's FREE! But really, I am tickled that y'all see the value in it. Please tell your friends! Let's share and grow some more!
Dianne; You know how I got here... you invited me and that made me so happy. I have wanted to meet you for quite some time. Lots of reasons, I think good ones. Time will tell, if I can make a contribution or not, I love what you have done here. Given a platform for others to meet and greet. I love inclusion, this is a good thing that you have made and Storytellers are hungry for just such a environment. Thank you again... really.
If you have ever seen a prarie wild fire then you know how quickly it can spread. I found out about this site through "Buck" Creasy and I have invited several others to join as well. Thanks for the site it is very user friendly and I enjoy adding to it as well as reading about the other tellers some whom I have told with and others I would like to tell with.
