I thought I’d start for A for “All together now”.
I guess that the biggest thing that I could say about me is that ‘all together now’ is pretty much one of my slogans. I think that a supportive community and supporting communities is important, one of the most important things to me, really.
And being in a group and supporting others is one of the most rewarding things that I’ve ever taken part in.
Community is where we grow
All of the stuff I’ve done in the last few years has been towards growth and working with one another. I’ve got a lot of people to thank for that, which I’ve done on the other blog (A for acknowledgements), but honestly? Being part of vibrant communities where respect, and conversation are important. It’s been part of being able to crowdsource information about how I am working through recovery and mental health. My community helps me find my writing research needs. I’ve got a community of friends at LudoSport who support me through various things, plus it’s fun to exercise with friends!
My gaming community gives me downtime, and lets me play games, run games and support games, and all communities mean I get an excuse to learn more about writing, social media, promotion and journalling. In short, having a community, or communities that I’m involved in, has given me a lot of fun, happiness, support and distraction.
So, front and centre, I wanted to say thank you to my community. And, if you want to see more about the ‘key players’, go over to my other AtoZ blog project, and check out A for Acknowledgements.
