I have some good news to share!
The untapped brilliance blog has been named one of The Best ADHD Blogs… for the 5th year in a row!! It’s such an honor. While I don’t write blog articles to win awards, it is really fun to receive one.
The morning I started the blog is burned into my memory. I was living downtown, drinking my coffee, and I had an inspired thought, ‘I should start a blog.’ So I ran to my laptop and googled ‘how to start a blog’ while Kitty casually watched on.
At first there were just a few readers but I kept writing articles.
Now, 10 years later, UntappedBrilliance.com gets over 30,000 visits a month.
I know there are blogs and websites that get lots more visits than that. However, 30,000 feels like a huge number to me! That is a lot of people (from countries all around the world) getting their ADHD questions answered.
Another cool thing, I have gotten to know many readers so they feel like pen pals and friends. I have met some in real life too. Just last summer, one reader visited Montreal from Hawaii and another from British Columbia.
Technology is often said to isolate people. My experience has been the opposite! UntappedBrilliance.com has allowed me to connect with tens of thousands of readers and it has also allowed readers to connect with each other, both in the comments section of the blog and in the courses I run.
For example in Essentially Brilliant (my flagship course), members connect and share experiences in the monthly live calls and form friendships outside the course too. If you haven’t met anyone with ADHD before, being in a virtual room of people just like you is very liberating and healing. One member said her shame and embarrassment about having ADHD has vanished as a result.
Thank you for being here! thank you for reading! it wouldn’t be the same without you. And thank you Healthline.com…it’s a huge honour!
