Need a new New Year’s resolution? How about living your purpose?
This is what the online community of female bloggers, Women on the Verge, will write about during the last month of the year.
Some of the most popular resolutions like losing weight, quit smoking, saving money are good, but require sweat and diligence. So to balance out your list, how about making time for the one thing that inspires and excites you: your purpose.
To fully flesh out what this means on a personal level, WOTV bloggers will dig deep and write about what Living Your Purpose means to each and every one of them. Anyone can become a blogger and ruminate on the December topic by creating a free account on the Women on the Verge website.
“What in your life gives you purpose? Makes you feel fulfilled? How are you living it out in your every day?” asks Ana Lewis, founder of WOTV, a website where women all around the world can find support and discuss topics through blogs, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and an online radio show. “If you are not, talk to us about your search, as maybe we can help.”
All WOTV members have online profiles with pictures and personal information, and can comment on posts and become friends with one another, similar to that on Facebook. The main feature however, is the WOTV blogs, which garner 1,000,000 hits per month and have landed the community in the pages of Marie Claire magazine. WOTV has an additional 10,000 followers in social media. Its members range from New York Times bestselling authors and entrepreneurs, to mothers and grandmothers, etc.
Women on the Verge was founded in September 2009 by Lewis in Tucson, Arizona. Lewis previously belonged to an online community for work at home moms where she found valuable support on how to balance work and family life. However the site didn’t provide information about who she was interacting with. So Lewis started Women on the Verge, featuring profiles, or online directories of all participants. She later launched a WOTV Twitter account, and attracted more than 100 followers on the first day. WOTV now incorporates all sorts of social media, and continues to grow its members and audience.
