a spark. a trace. something left to ignite.

the internet machine has been responsible for some of my closest relationships. we strip down bare in this space in a way that we rarely do anywhere else, we reveal in a way that speaking doesn’t allow us to. i have found a venue of sharing and expression that i couldn’t imagine in any other place. the power of this space, the power of sharing and connection – these are concepts i can never quite wrap my mind entirely around, they amaze me in such a huge way.

last fall and winter, the seeds of this were born. kim was the first to say, maybe we can do our own project. maybe we can make it better than the others. onyi and i jumped on board with haste. we planned and plotted and schemed, and a part of me can’t believe it’s real. a part of me can’t believe i’m occupying the same space as these two incredible women as a co-creator of this beautiful project. i can’t believe i’m on their level.

we want you to come together the way we came together. we want to meet even more people out there in cyberland. we want to learn your history. we want to meet you for a virtual cup of coffee, so that if the day comes when we meet you for a physical one, there are no barriers left. we want to engage and connect and share. and we want you to do the same.

for two weeks, write the kind of posts that remind you why you started blogging.

join us at to sign up for the prompts, follow us on twitter at @scintillahq, and get ready for the ride. it’s going to be a good one.

  1. My smile is enormous. I don’t know about “better” but I know that some people are going to be really happy with their work at the end of it, and I want to meet those people.

    Still smiling. What you said at the end about no barriers left? ALL of the fistpump.

  2. I still cannot get over it, this thing that we have created. I know that I’m going to have to factor in the time I will spend reading posts during work hours; I am prepared for this, just so you know.

    Couldn’t have done this with two more awesome people ♥

  3. I’m really looking forward to these prompts. I’ve said it to Kim, but I’m in desperate need of this. I need the inspiration, the motivation, and the support. Writing isn’t coming so easily these days so I’m really looking forward to the challenge.

    Can’t wait to see what you three have come up with!

    Love to you all.
