It has finally happened! After months of uhh-ming and ahh-ing about it, lots of friends telling me to just bite the bullet and DO it, I have set up a Facebook page for A Life Worth Living. It's funny that it's taken me this long - I TEACH this stuff for goodness sakes, but I've always held back because I never MEANT to become a public figure. Not in dancing (that's been a happy accident), not through my blog (was meant to be a way to keep in touch with friends) and not through all the various other social media things I'm active on.
And let me just clarify that I am well aware that I am NOT an actual public figure. It's just that my streams of work happen to take me to many countries and meeting a hugely diverse range of people. Famous, this does NOT make me.
And yet, it's happened. I woke up this morning still sick with the flu (this one has knocked me around badly!), with another day off from work (sigh), and realised I had:
- 300 pending facebook friend requests on my personal profile - that I haven't accepted because I don't know them personally, or don't remember meeting them (workshops with over 100 people? I definitely don't remember everyone hard as I try)
- random (and WONDERFUL) comments on my blog from people I don't know, and despite my TINY readership, have come from around the world (and I do love this, so please keep reading and keep commenting)
- very random people messaging me from the youtube channel about my dancing and wanting to be my facebook friends
I DO want to keep this wonderful community I have, but cannot keep my Facebook personal profile candid if I add strangers. I ALSO do want a handy spot to amalgamate all my 3 lifestreams - my dance school and the work I do as a professional dancer, my training business and the work I do to help people achieve more out of life, and my personal blog that you're on right now.
So here it goes, if you do want to keep in touch with what's a-happening (particularly since I'm not such a TIMELY blogger) - just join the revolution that is the Facebooks. Click below! I've even already added some photos, links and more for you to peruse!
Whilst you're at it, want to go like my business pages too, so you can be TOTALLY ON THE BALL?
