I think people are amazing. Other people inspire me all the time.
I’ve been lucky enough to encounter some pretty cool people in my life and I’m sure I’ll bump into more all the time. By cool people, I don’t mean celebrity status or anything. I just mean, honest, hard-working, good people who inspire others.
There are plenty of people that I think the Internet should know about, so I’m starting a blog series about them. I’m spreading the word about creative, interesting people in the best way I know how with the means I have. I’ve been trying to think of a name for it and for now I’ve come up with “Cool People.” This will mostly be artists, writers, designers, photographers and other creative types, but I may throw in the occasional lawyer or non-profit manager.
There are some great blog series and podcasts that I’ve been inspired by that have led me to this venture. Those include Creative Ladies, Young Creatives, ModCloth’s Best Job Ever series, and the Girl on Guy podcast.
My series will be a little broader than some. Although I think it’s great when a series has a specific focus, such as female creative types, I don’t want to place a limit on who to interview. At least, that’s the case at this time.
I’ve met people who inspired me at school, at parties, bus stops, concerts and across the Internet. Even just a chance encounter can leave a lasting impression. Have you ever had an instance like that? Of course you have! Everyone has! That’s why I’m sharing the inspiration. I hope to talk to some really awesome people about their passions in life and hear some good stories. Everyone has a story to tell and it’s great to be part of the telling.
I hope you, my lovely readers, are as inspired by the cool people in this series. I’m really looking forward to it!
P.S. Wondering why I used that photo? It’s because we meet many people in our life travels. Some of those can help lead us down great paths.
