Welcome


I was a little uncertain whether this endeavor qualified as a blog, but since Wikipedia defines the word as "a type of website or part of a website…usually maintained by an individual with regular entries of commentary, descriptions of events, or other material…" I thought it would meet the requirements. I will post informational articles once a month, each discussing, or contributed by a 'Wise Woman', a woman who I have found inspirational. I want to share these inspirations.

The idea to do this came after Lynne Spreen invited me to do a guest post on her wonderful blog, Any Shiny Thing | a Blog for Smart Women of a Certain Age. I mentioned there that a few things had happened to make me realize how important it is that we share our knowledge. After I began my research, I believed that even more. A comment by Nanci on the AnyShinyThing guest blog summed up perfectly what I hope this site will do: I love the idea of talking about the ways that our journeys have made us unique and useful. Re-inventing ourselves in a new era is so invigorating and reading about the “small stories” of women making a difference in their lives and others is such a wonderful concept. Most of us are “small story” people, but put us together and there can be big results. AMEN, Nanci!

I will post the first story the week of January 1, 2011. In time, I hope to request your choices for 'Wise Women', but for now, I have a list to keep me busy for a while. Please enjoy the posts and add your own thoughts. Be inspired—be inspiring!
