Soapbox. Platform. Dissertation. Lecture. Stage. Concert hall. Basketball court. Book. Blog. 

Good news is: we've all got a platform to use for good, bad, and the in between. 

Kevin Durant talked about blogging in the midst of his MVP acceptance speech. He talked about blogging, jobs, sports, coffee dates. Not directly, he didn't. But indirectly he did. He said, we have influence in our space, in our circumstance, in our zone. Famous or not, basketball or blog, girl or man.

Influence means we have the opportunity to create community.

Upon which our community is created determines our scope, our sphere, our story. We can establish community on a foundation of mutual respect or interest in sports or love for crafts or hate for being on "my internet". Within that community there becomes conversation. Conversation about devotion and doubt and daringness and dreams. We have influence which sparks community which flares into conversation.

So, where's your platform?

And, most importantly, how are you going to use it?
