Today is the third anniversary of a wee website which has allowed me to hitchhike across a few of life’s superhighways and connect with others who have multiple passions like I do.
The site is called Puttylike, and if you’ve been reading for a good while, you’ve heard me mention it a few times.
Puttylike was created to form a community of people who have multiple interests and aren’t afraid to tackle them all. While historically some have scoffed and called this dilletante-ism, it’s such a part of us to explore new and different things that we have claimed it as an asset, forcing a massive rebrand– Multipotentialites, Unite!
I bet there are a lot of people who come to check out Taste Life Twice who may fall into this category. Since we like to experiment with life and reflect on it, after all…
Emilie, the site’s founder, chose the word “Putty-like” to describe us, since we’re easily molded into new shapes and forms. She also uses the more common term of being a “Renaissance person.” She has an e-book that lays out her advice for what to do if you’re one of these types of people who wants to start their own business (of which there are quite a lot). She also has what I have long profited from, and has made me some awesome friends, The Puttytribe.
The Tribe are the people who lead free workshops for other members on their pet topic, discuss best practices of blogging in the forums, organize a meet-up for members with a common interest, and many other things. It’s a magic, respectful place.
The Tribe have been the cause of many different experiences for me:
- my introduction to dance-walking, via Sarah Goshman
- my second guest post ever (and first one that went the way it should)
- my discovery of several awesome blogs, including the Clear-Minded Creative and Change Catalyst
- the months-long meetup group of bloggers that kept each other accountable and gave advice about different stages of blogging, coding, marketing, and general business– all pretty scary to start on
- my first tech coach who helped me through the many baby steps of Taste Life Twice’s early days
And I’m sure a whole lot of other amazing opportunities happened that would never have done so if I hadn’t joined Puttylike as it was just getting big. It’s been a source of reliable networking, support group, and business generation opportunities since I joined, and the people there have helped me wrestle with how to combine loves of food, travel, and writing, all in one place. Ta-da!
Cheerio for now, let me know if you have questions about Puttiness after poking around Emilie’s site… Also in store, more food posts and what I did while on vacation in September!
