#1000Speak: An Update

1000 Voices Speak for Compassion has a Facebook Page. The page went up today and already has nearly 300 likes. The group is almost at 650. There is a logo which I will use to create a sidebar link here when I have a second to monkey with the widgets.

100VoicesLogoI’ve never had an opportunity to watch something take off like this up close. Also, never managed to start anything this big myself. I’m happy to be a part of it, and glad I discovered it when I did. Diana and I are cooking up something special to help bring more attention to it. We’re still working out the details, but look for an announcement fairly soon.

The diversity and savvy of the activities being carried out in that group amazes me. There are not only promo posts being shared. There’s a shared pinterest board. A video being ironed out. #1000Speak was crafted there in less than a day. Ideas flying every which way. All being done with cheerful enthusiasm and very little formal organization. How can you not love this?

I’m going off-schedule for a bit. As long as I keep seeing developments, you will keep seeing late posts here on occasion. Basically, the part of the promotion cycle where I say “Hey! Check its out!” is over. My reach isn’t all that long, and I think everyone who I can possibly find out about this through me either knows about it or will find out this weekend when they catch up. Now, I am covering the news while brainstorming one more clever trick.

It’s fabulous to see so many bloggers in this group that I recognize from my threads and from Twitter. That warms my heart right up and makes me glad I am still blogging.
