Migraine Awareness Month Blogging Challenge #16: “Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”
Which role fits you and why?
I’m a bit late on this one due to having to get a new computer and then spending a day on set up.
I can say I have never been much of a follower. Sort of the whole antisocial antiauthority personality of mine doesn’t like to follow. I like to collaborate certainly, but definitely not a follower. But not a leader either. Because really I have never been a team player or much for group work per sa, so I’m not about to lead anyone to push boundaries or anything. I more of a solo player. In the background sort of speak, unless someone asks for my assistance with a project and then I’m game. Especially if it tweaks my interest and then I get all into it. Mostly I do my own thing. I mean I have a blog… not run a forum. I write articles freelance which is a solo gig. I do things like this to throw my voice in the mix and I do as much as I can to promote awareness. I’m a writer. Generally that means I’m not a follower or a leader. I’m a hermit plunking away at a keyboard in the wee hours of the night. Frankly, I’m lucky if I notice or interact with people. If I didn’t work then I likely wouldn’t. Which is why I like having a blog and going to forums because I can be involved in communities and get support. But when it comes to advocating awareness I’m neither a leader nor a follower, but certainly a contributor. Or at least I try to be.
