I almost missed this.
Dana King is my co-blogger at Know Your Neighbor; we talk (virtually) virtually every day.
She'd been toying with the idea of blogging for months; Dana has something to say AND she wants to find her voice.
Having launched her blog in late August, Dana is now blogging several times a week, and I almost -- almost -- zoomed right past her accomplishment.
Until I remembered what I learned from rock climbing: look both up, and down, forward -- and back.
Dana has many, many wonderful, grand plans, which makes looking back difficult to do.
It's so easy to wonder - next, next -- what's next?
But, I need to, I want to, celebrate the launch of her blog, to celebrate the fact that this delightful, engaging, tremendously competent woman (just take a look at her Habitat for Humanity project) is both finding and sharing her voice.
Congratulations Dana -- like Jane , you are now an official, bona fide, dare to dreamgirl!
Will each of you, dear readers, go to Dana's blog and tell her Atta Girl?
Any of your recent accomplishments -- along the way, if you will - that we need to celebrate?
What about with our children -- are we giving them Atta Girls and Atta Boys -- for their accomplishments?
What about our spouses, friends?
