What Have You Learned in 2006?

As I've said here before, I am part of the "Joyful, Jubilant Learning" month over at Talking Story. Today was my day and I wrote an article...Ten Things I've Learned in 2006. It is truly an honor to have been invited to contribute to this project!

Hopefully this will inspire you to write your own list!

In response to my post, Rosa Say, the author behind Talking Story made a list...

Can’t resist: Ten Things I’ve learned about the no-longer-lurkers of the Ho‘ohana Community
1. We are attracted by aloha even before we completely understand what it means. Funny how that happens despite the immensity of the blogosphere. Like bees and honey.
2. We can individually disappear for weeks at a time, but slipping back in is amazingly easy. We’re all in it together, so everyone understands.
3. We are all getting bit by the relationship geek virus, and we don’t want to be cured.
4. We are getting increasingly impatient about taking some of our connections offline. Phone call charges? Who cares.
5. We challenge each other to write better without even realizing it. Linking is not about traffic; it’s about admiration and appreciation.
6. We welcome all comers, as long as their voices are positive ones. Optimism and enthusiasm absolutely rule. Respect is a given.
7. As far as we’re concerned, geographical distance is completely irrelevant. So are time zones.
8. We all spend too much time online, but we’d say, “We read a lot.”
9. We are absolutely, unequivocally obsessed with learning. We’re getting much better with asking terrific questions.
10. We suspect we are on the verge of something great, just not sure what it is.
Ah, blogging...what a blessing!
