Exciting Developments at Women For One

It has been quite an activity-filled month for me both personally and in the development of what I envision for Women For One. I am humbled by the overwhelming initial response I received both on the site and privately about my ideas for this movement. Obviously there is a need in the community and I am excited to create a container and structure to fill it. Away we go!

In this blog, I will give each of you a glimpse into the future of Women For One and ask for your input and ideas as well.

As I stated in my first blog, Women For One (WF1) addresses four main areas:

WF1: Creates a virtual community to initiate authentic dialogue about issues that are important to women of all ages.

Action: Every other week I will select a subject, a theme or just a word that I feel is important to Women For One’s readers. I will write my thoughts on the subject and I will ask you to tell me your thoughts and ideas for others to read and respond to. Please send me your ideas for dialogue.

WF1: Informs women about non-profit organizations and causes that they can get involved with.

Action: We are compiling our list of organizations and causes that will be highlighted monthly. Each month I will interview the founder of a specific cause and post the interview on our site so that you can find out more about how to get involved and/or tell others about the incredible actions taken by women all over the world. Our first cause will be highlighted in September.

I ask each of you to send me the organization that you are most inspired by and tell me why.

WF1: Provides a place for women to be inspired daily with links to our favorite inspirational websites and quotes.

Action: For everyone that knows me personally, I am a quote whore! I have wise words posted all over my house, in my car and in my office that inspire me daily. Beginning this Wednesday and every Wednesday thereafter, Women For One will post a “Quote of the Week” to inspire us all.

I ask each of you to share your favorite quote on the site so we can highlight it and inspire others.

WF1: Connects women to resources on any and all topics of interest and concern.

Action: We are developing a resource page that will be posted in the next few weeks of national and local websites, authors, businesses and organizations that I have personally been involved in and supported by in my life.

A Message to the Men:

For all of you wonderful MEN out there that are feeling excluded by our name, I want to be clear that we women LOVE you! We create you, nourish you, relate to you and want your input as well. I encourage all MEN to please follow and join in our site as well from the “feminine” side that exists in each of you – the giving, nurturing and softer sides of yourselves. Thank you for your support and love.

Please keep emailing me your comments, questions, ideas and ESPECIALLY… answers to the questions I have posed.

Also, remember to tell your friends about Women For One on Facebook and Twitter.

Join me in creating a movement that supports all of US.

Talk with you next week!
