Thoughts and Progress

Hello and Happy October, everyone! 

First of all, I want to express my gratitude to all of you who expressed interest in my ideas about women's empowerment. I want to give an update here now, and will try to go through my emails from that post and write back to all of you!

How I Want to Start this Project: 
1. A blog (probably tumblr?) where women and girls can submit their stories - struggles, accomplishments, joys and pain - I want it all. I want to post motivational words, art, and videos. I want this thing to go viral. Many of you suggested that this be an internet-based project, simply because of ease of access. I figure a tumblr account will work for this purpose, but if anyone has any other ideas, please feel free to let me know.

2. A YouTube channel where inspirational stories and videos are posted regularly - I'd love to be able to do something weekly, and that's where I need help from other bloggers (and women in general) who care about the issues facing the rising generation of women. Ideally, I would like to find one blogger in each state who would be willing to work with me directly. Those bloggers, in turn, would seek out women in different areas of their state to work with. Basically, I want to be able to reach out to women and girls in all areas of the country. I'd like personal stories, thoughts on today's society and the struggles that women and girls face, inspirational music, acts of service, whatever you can catch on video. Send me clips of the video throughout the month, and I will try to compile a 10 minute inspirational video for the channel. I will need one-two bloggers who are good with video who would be willing to hep me manage the channel.

3. A presence in schools, churches, and communities across the country. I am going to sound a little full of myself for a minute, so bear with me - I am a good public speaker. It is one of the talents that my Heavenly Father has blessed me with, and for a long time, I didn't see it as a talent that could be shared. I'm also an incredibly passionate person (which can lead to some pretty intense moments). Now I think to myself, why not combine my passion and my talents to reach out to others? This presence will probably be the most difficult part of this whole project. I have no idea whatsoever how to build this, how to get people to let us in. If any of you have experience with this, please PLEASE help me!! Let's get women and bloggers across the country spreading the word and encouraging girls!

So. If you are serious and you want to be a part of this, please comment or email me directly. If you aren't interested, but you know someone who might be, share this post with them, please! We can make a difference - even if we only affect one person, we have accomplished something to be proud of!! 

"The world has enough women who are tough; we need women who are tender. There are enough women who are coarse; we need women who are kind. There are enough women who are rude; we need women who are refined. We have enough women of fame and fortune; we need more women of faith. We have enough greed; we need more goodness. We have enough vanity; we need more virtue. We have enough popularity; we need more purity."
--Margaret Nadauld
