It was late one Saturday night, I sat there contemplating. I’d been hanging around LinkedIn long enough to have finally pushed past the magical 500 connections. Finally, the numbers next to my name were generous and ambiguous: 500+. I’d also been reading other people’s posts for awhile to get an idea of what interested me, what worked, and what was appropriate to share on this form of social media.
My birthday was coming up. Not just any birthday though. The one. The one where I’d get older than my father ever did.
It was scary, it was poignant, and it was also something that I’d never discussed with anyone.
To be continued…
