Happy Friday, everyone!
Holy crap, I’m working over time just to make sure my ridiculous twenty part job (which I’m still thankful for) is covered while I’m gone next week to the Catalyst conference. I’m almost going to need a vacation after this.
But I’m excited because it’s my third time to go to the Catalyst, and the Bloggers Meetup on Wednesday night. There’s still some tickets left, so if you are going to Catalyst, I’d love to see you at the Meetup!
One reason I love events like this is because I find other people so much more interesting than myself. A huge variety of people are going to be there, including Jamie the Very Worst Missionary, Scott Williams, Ron Edmonson, Lindsey Nobles, Bryan Allain, John Saddington, Justin Wise and Alece Ronzino. Plus, I’m gonna get to meet some of my blog friends, including Jeremy Statton, Darrell Vesterfelt and Ally Spotts. Geez, just in that group, you’ve got world travelers, engineers, prison wardens, surgeons, authors and publicists. And I’m just Matt, a small fish in a big pond, a fact that I’m reminded of every time one of you comments on my blog.
This is also what I call my “continuing education,” my time to hear from people who inspire me. I always discover brilliant people I never knew existed, but now can’t live without.
So, on this Friday, I’ve got a really easy question for you. Tell me who’s inspiring you today. Whose books are you reading, whose messages are you listening to, whose wisdom are you emulating, whose blog are you stalking? Who’s rocking your face, melting your mind, or just making you pee your pants in excitement?
