Last year, @stephanieflo contacted me and asked if I would be interested in contributing a post to the3six5 project. If you’re not familiar with the site, it’s an ongoing storytelling project that features a new post from a new person each day of the year. Quite the incredible side project started by @lenkendall and @danielhonigman that crowdsources a new post every day. Translation – incredible amount of work associated with finding editors and keeping the daily post drumbeat rolling.
I admittedly was only remotely familiar with the project until Stephanie contacted me. After signing on for my post date, I immediately subscribed to the blog and have been a loyal reader each day. In short, it’s an amazing project and a true testament to the fact that everyone in this world does in fact have an evolving story of their own.
I managed to stay true to the author guidelines, allowing my post idea to come about on my assigned day. I hope you enjoy the post and if you’re as much a fan of storytelling as I am, I’d encourage you to hop over and apply for a 2012 post slot.
