This is the description of the NonCon,
The Aiming Low Non-Conference is an event meant to get back to the core values of blogging. It will be a weekend full of question and answers and information-sharing. There will be NO PANELS, just a learning environment where you are welcomed to ask about the personal, technical, seeking and slightly embarrassing questions you might have and get honest, genuine answers from our noteworthy Roundtable Leaders as well as your peers.
I wrote that. Other people write a lot of things FOR ME because its easier for them to make with the words and explanations.
I wanted this to be clear. Simple. My own words.
Yeah, there were those that could have been more elaborate and descriptive. In a lot if instances I will gladly stand back and let them handle writing wordy things.
Not this. This was something my heart dreamed up. Yes, I was responsible for the bulk of the stress and potential failure but I wanted it a certain way.
I came up with the roundtables, an idea different from the many conferences I’d been to and been a part of.
I asked my friends to be conversation leaders and keynote speakers.
I treated this conference like my newborn. Lovingly nurtured and cared for and then the days of the event came and I had to let go.
At one point I sat between tables with Faiqa and just shook my head. “It’s really happening!”
She smiled at me and nodded. We could hear the talks at each table. We could feel the rightness of the moment.
We had done it.
Something three years ago in a hospital bed the doctors would have said impossible.
I took a dream.
Put it into words.
Made it a reality.
If I my broken and wheelchair-bound body can do it, what’s stopping you?
More to come……
