Over the course of my work, my activism, my networking, and my life, I come across several truly amazing people.
I also come across some amazing animals, but that is a different post.
One of these people is a man who when I first met him, I thought he was a weirdo. And while I still hold that opinion, I also see him as one of the most intelligent, creative, hardworking, and best people I have in my life. Since we differ on outlooks and perspectives, he is always pushing me to grow and develop as a person. I like to think I have made him grow at least a little along the way.
When he first started to blog at Fliponymous, I immediately became his biggest fan. I then helped him to network with one of his favorite bloggers, my friend Miriam from Brute Reason. When he got his first readership spike, he was ecstatic, and seeing him so happy was the highlight of my day.
And now, he has hit the big leagues. Last week, I read his first post (An Invisible Man) at the Huffington Post. I'm not sure what he will create with his new platform, but I am truly excited.
Celebrate this momentous event!
