Members of the online community, Women on the Verge, will bare their vulnerabilities through their blogs, tweets and vlogs, as a means to liberating themselves from the worry their imperfections cause.
Women on the Verge (WOTV) members voice their opinions about anything they’d like on the Women on the Verge website, find sisterly support and contribute to a monthly topic of discussion. For the month of June the topic is: No room to hide.
Our personalities are complex and have many different and even contradicting parts. They can be sociable yet shy, confident yet insecure, patient yet irritable. “’‘No room to hide’ is going to be a self discovery and exploration. Who is the you who makes you feel most vulnerable?” asks founder and member Ana Lewis. “It's time to release the fear and be okay in your most vulnerable skin.” Anyone can create a free account and join the conversation.
The WOTV blogs, which garner 1,000,000 hits per month, are the main feature of the community and have landed the website in the pages of Marie Claire magazine. The community also boasts an additional 10,000 followers on social media. Members span all over the world and include New York Times bestselling authors, entrepreneurs and mothers.
Life coach and WOTV member Judy Kinney will offer a telecall seminar titled “Imperfection and Vulnerability” on June 6. “Trying to be perfect and protect yourself sucks up your valuable energy, leaving you depleted and alone” says Kinney on her Judy Kinney website. In the hour-long, $40 dollar session, Kinney will talk about what she calls the “new power”, which she describes as being personal, vulnerable and imperfect.
WOTV members will also share what they’ve blogged about on the Women Change the World online radio show on Blog Talk Radio and on the WOTV site. The show airs on the third Wednesday of every month, the next one being on June 20th, from 7 to 8 p.m. Eastern Time.
Panelists include Judy Kinney; Marta Moran-Bishop, author of “Wee Three, A Mother's Love in Verse”; Jessica Mason Pieklo, women's rights activist and attorney; Dawn Rivers, political junkie and micro-business expert; and Elin Stebbins Waldal, author of “Tornado Warning, A Memoir of Teen Dating Violence and Its Effect on a Woman's Life” and founder of Girls kNOw.
Women on the Verge was founded in September 2009 by Lewis in Tucson, Arizona.
