As I was thinking over the entirety of the conversation yesterday, I remember sitting in class my freshmen year of college, and the professor talking about three different types of information. There are things you know. There are things you know you don't know. And then there are things you don't know you don't know. (Yes, it took me a long time to understand that last one.) But one day it clicked. And on Wednesday it clicked too. First and foremost, I had no idea it would be so hard to read and respond simultaneously. There's just so much awesome stuff being said! But I got to read about others' experiences and I got to ask questions. It was so helpful, especially to just read at times. I wanted to research what was happening in front of me, but it was all happening so fast, and all of a sudden it was 10:00 and we were done.
And then last night I listened in on the blogtalkradio show, and that left me feeling even more astounded. There are so many smart, articulate people out there, and I'm glad that I have found you, but now where do I go? My brain was trying to process what it was hearing and reading, but there was no output in return. I asked questions, but I had nothing to give. It feels good. I know that there is more out there I need to learn about, and now I've got a reason to get started on it. These conversations have lit the fire under me.
