After reading through an account of how camp 2010 went via a blog… I thought about how accessible every word we post online is. Whether positive or negative, our blogs, Twitter feed, and Facebook updates set our reputation for our readers and followers.
((Sidenote: We frequently sit at our desks in super hero costumes and respond to emails. It just makes email processing seem much more noble. Although, if we showed you pictures of our alter-life-saving-egos, we would cease to have powers…therefore, we borrowed this picture from a comic book company.))
Our potential employers will access our blogs, Facebook, and Twitter accounts. Our friends and family will read it to keep up with us. Kids at camp will read it because they think we are the coolest people they’ve ever met. Random people may stumble upon your blog by searching for the brand name, event, or John Mayer concert that you mentioned… broadcasting your opinions to a world that has never met you. You have so much influence! You can tell the world how great something is… or how lame it is instantly. You can encourage or tear down. You can inspire. You can motivate. You can cast a vision of leadership, of life, and of loving others. As a friend of mine who you might know, Jeremy Echols, always says, “use your superpowers for good.” What impact are you having on your readers?
