As I’ve been looking over the Facebook Insights page for The Aspie Dialogues since last week’s call to action, I’ve been very impressed and grateful for the numbers I’ve been seeing.
At the time of this writing, that post has reached 454 people, garnering 14 clicks and 9 likes, comments, and shares. I’m almost sad in a way; sad that I may never get a response like this again if I don’t keep raising the bar. (I’m still gonna try, though. I didn’t get this far by giving up…)
That’s FANTASTIC momentum, but we can’t stop here! We have to keep the momentum building right up to the deadline for submissions.
So, I’m going to ask each and every one of you to share the Putting the Pieces Together Challenge with at least five people in your circle of friends. I know, I know. It’s imposing a little bit, but if each of you emails five people, who each email five people, who each email five people… See where this is going?
Don’t think for a second that just because you’re Neuro-typical, that means you can’t participate, either! Even if you’re an NT, you can still participate if you are a close part of a Spectrumite’s life.
For example, you could be a parent, or somebody who works with a Spectrumite, or a close friend, sibling, or other close relative. ASD affects you, too, in a more indirect way than it affects your loved one/friend/co-worker. You still have your thoughts and experiences with ASD you wish you could share with others who aren’t affected by it.
I want to hear from everybody. A painting doesn’t depict a complete picture if the artist only paints with one color, so why should we hear from only one side of the story?
Please, help make this the biggest success this can be! Share this with as many people as you think could benefit from it! Keep the fires alive! Build that momentum! And while you’re at it, share your thoughts with the Putting the Pieces Together Challenge!
Am I missing anything? Do you have something to add? Maybe you just want to contribute to the conversation? My mind is always open to discussion, so why not leave me a note in the Comments section, below?
As always… May you find peace with yourself, within yourself! Rock on, Spectrumites!
