Day Two at Blogwest

With Jayson Aquilanti


What an amazing day at Blogwest!

This is how we started our day . . .

With Jayson Acquilanti: Your Future! A Visual Metaphor
In this 45-minute workshop, examine your current business situation and future vision through the use and application of Visual Explorer(™) cards, a tool for creative conversations and deep dialogue.  Through the use of a wide variety of images about almost any topic, you’ll have the chance to take part in guided conversations about the things that are happening right now, and your prospects down the road.  This session will deliver:
  1. Through imagery, the opportunity to examine your current situation
  2. The chance to discover meaning behind your image selections
  3. Insight and clarity on areas of focus to develop a long term vision of where you’d like to be in five years

It was an unusual exercise but one that really opened my eyes. We do see the world differently from each other. I saw one thing in the visual card and my partner saw another, but what we saw spoke to what was important to us as individuals. I saw an exciting story of adventure and adversity and my partner saw a woman of strength and courage.

Very cool . . .

I am on information overload right now.  I made a grilled cheese sandwich for supper, got into my pj's and I'm going to spend the rest of the night in bed with a good book.

I can hardly wait until tomorrow!

p.s.

One of the sessions was on journalism. We were asked if we had the two books on grammar and punctuation. (Who knew there was a standard?) I will be picking this up first thing. Perhaps it will prevent me from using commas with  such reckless abandon.

Did I miss something? I think I figured out what Blogwest is, but where, when, $$$?, and is it a one-time or periodic event?

I am at a three day confrence for bloggers. Today is the last day and I am having an amazing time. This is a once a year event although there are other blog conferences in other places as well. I am learning about writing good content, how to shsre what I write with more readers and a host of other things. One of the best things has been getting to know other Western Canadian bloggers in person.
