One Month In

The Pot-Luck has been live for just over a month now, and the response has been fantastic. We’ve seen a wide variety of posts, from a wide variety of authors, touching on a wide variety of topics. And from the varied backgrounds of all these people, they have all touched on a common concept: community. That’s exactly what this blog was created for; to show that no matter who you are, or what you’re doing, you are touched by a community in some way.

Even though all of the authors are from one (relatively) small area in the middle of Eastern Washington, their posts have been read around the world (nearly 50 countries!) People everywhere can identify with the ideas about community and collaboration here. And the comments that have been shared have been wonderful.

But the thing that makes me the proudest has been the comments from the authors to me, thanking me for creating this forum to share their ideas and tap into their own inspirations. Seeing people who were apprehensive about writing, and apologizing for their lack of writing skill, present beautifully written passages that touch people’s hearts. If The Pot-Luck ended today, I would still feel like it was a total success.

I couldn’t be happier about how this project has turned out, and I can’t wait for more. I can’t wait to read each new post as it comes in (yes, I cheat and read them early) and wait with anticipation for everyone else to read them, too.

I hope this endeavor has touched you as much as it’s touched me, and I hope you’re ready for more.

I'm a software developer, working remotely from Richland, WA, working on solving the many issues of managing financial services products on the web. I'm fascinated by the user experience of web sites and applications and read way more than I should. Working on effectively sharing knowledge and ideas has become a recent, but burning, passion.
