Sooo.... I got to be part of a nationally-trending hashtag yesterday.
Huge props to my coworker Nate Taylor and my friend Sarah Withee (both fellow speakers, obv.) for coming up with the idea and getting things rolling. Nate has a post with some more detail about what went down.
It's been gratifying to see everyone sharing their fears and concerns and dirty little secrets about speaking in front of other people - especially people whom I have no idea who they are. It felt like a larger community appearing out of nowhere, and I got to be in the middle of it. I learned a lot, and though I honestly felt anxiety even about just participating, I'm glad I jumped on the train.
Also, obviously not the most important thing that went down yesterday. But it's something I can actually comment about.
