Super Sheroes | The Ones We've Been Waiting For
When my nephew, Dabi visited last summer, I asked him for a blog post idea or theme, which I could develop and write on. Any topic, I said. Just say the word. I'd be all over it like a rash- a pretty rash. If right now you are thinking, "She doesn't know what she's getting herself into"... You aren't too far from what's coming.
Dabi looked up from his bowl of chocolate cereal, fixed his eyes on me and said, "Ummm, write about....... superheroes," then he lifted a spoonful of cereal into his mouth, crunching away at those choc puffs, head swinging from side to side to some imaginary music. I stared blankly at him. Seriously? I thought. Next to his cereal bowl was a copy of a DC batman comic: "Batman and Robin Take on Ice Man"... or something like that.
How convenient, Dabi.
"Ahem", I said,"Any other suggestions?"
"Nope!" He said. Crunch. Crunch.
I couldn't even believe this boy.
I plopped on my sofa and sought solace in my favorite run-away-from-your-challenges-lala-land- Instagram.
Then it hit me- not all at once, but it short spurts of sudden realizations- I actually knew a few superheroes myself! As I went through my Instagram page, there they were. With every thumb-swipe, they just kept showing up. I myself knew many superheroes and to make it even more special they were She's! It was like suddenly discovering that you had Wonder Woman, Natasha Romanova, Rogue, Storm, Jean Grey, Sue Storm-Richards, Jessica Jones, Kitty Pryde, all on your phone, on your instagram wall! Your timeline, swimming with all the amazing things they do daily.
I had superheroes on my phone! *Scream!* *Happy scream*
Last summer, I got the blessed opportunity of stepping off the 700mph bloggers' train through out the month of September and really got to watch people do their thing. If you have a favorite blogger, you should give him/her a cyber-bear hug. Like right now. They break their backs, write, edit, stand-sit-hang during long photo shoots, they tweet, IG, pin....everything— just to maintain that continuity we all admire.
These women, these fabulous girls, all kyrptonite-free, doing amazing things.
To honor these women who blog, PGI will be starting the Super Sheroes series on Friday, the 3rd of February. The series will consist of quick, fun interviews with these women (it'll be like hanging out with your favorite blogger, hair down, in PJs with no chill, of course).
Some of them you know, some, new. Can not wait! I hope you enjoy this as much I intend to.
So Dabi, I accept your challenge! I am about to write about some of the SuperSheroes of my time...
And so it begins...
