Happy Digital Sisterhood Month 2015 Digital Sisters!

Today marks the beginning of the sixth annual  celebration  of  Digital Sisterhood Month. “Connect 1:1 = #DigitalSisterhood” is this year’s theme. It encourages Digital Sisters to invest time in cultivating one-on-one relationships with a small group of Digital Sisters. Quality vs. Quantity is what we are encouraging you to seek in nurturing your Digital Sisterhood relationships.

During the first week of Digital Sisterhood Month, we invite you to focus on your most important Digital Sisterhood relationship. The one you have with YOURSELF. Connect one-on-one with YOURSELF! Spend quiet time (unplugging) asking yourself what do you need to know, think, say and do to move through the final days of 2015 and start 2016 as a Fierce Living woman! Resources and tips will be posted on the DSN blog and social media tonight.

Enjoy Day #1 of #DSMonth!

Press Publish Conference in Portland

Greetings Digital Sisters

Digital Sisterhood Network founder Ananda Leeke is heading to Press Publish, WordPress’ first-ever conference featuring WordPress bloggers and the people behind WordPress.com, on March 27 and 28 in Portland, Oregon. While she’s at Press Publish, she’ll lead a session on “Blogging for Obama” that will give her an opportunity to share how she began blogging for personal reasons, evolved into a social media leader for the White House, and learned how to make the most of opportunities that have presented themselves as a result of her blogging adventures on March 28.

She’s also serve as a panelist for Michelle Langston’s session, “A Tale of Two Sites.” During this session, you’ll have a chance to look at her older AnandaLeeke.com web site and blog and learn how Michelle transformed them into a new and improved site that fully expresses her personality and online goals.

In addition to these sessions, you’ll be able to dive into a day of learning with presentations and tutorials led by an amazing group of speakers including Digital Sister of the Year Kathy Cano-Murillo, founder of the CrafyChica.com, on blogging 101, blogging on the go, going pro as a blogger, storytelling, turning your blog into a book or business, writing, WordPress design and plugins, and so much more.

Oh yeah, you’ll get to attend a Friday evening mixer where you will meet your fellow bloggers, receive your attendee packet, and enjoy storytelling by Longreads, snacks, and libations.

Celebrating Digital Sisterhood Month 2014 in London


Greetings Digital Sisters!

This year’s fifth annual celebration of Digital Sisterhood Month focused on “Gratitude for Digital Sisterhood Communities”.  Digital Sisterhood Network founder Ananda Leeke was able to express her gratitude when she visited and met with several digital sisters during her recent trip to London, England.

image

Leeke’s first London #DigitalSisterhood meet up was with 2014 Digital Sister of the Year Marilyn Fontaine  , an artist, author, holistic and creative coach, and yogini. They met for a Caribbean dinner at the Stratford Centre in East London. During their meet up, they discussed how much they have informed and inspired each other since they first connected online in 2006. They also shared lessons learned in maintaining a healthy lifestyle with life coaching support and self-care practices, being an artist and yogini, building community with women online and offline, managing and growing a business as a female entrepreneur.  Since they were both yoginis, they scheduled a second meet up that included a Saturday vinyasa yoga class taught by Digital Sister Rosemarie St. Louis, a yoga teacher and transformation coach, and tea at Coffee7, a cafe in Forest Gate (East London).

St Louis’ vinyasa yoga class was a soulful surrender kinda of experience for Fontaine and Leeke. Each yoga pose allowed them to reconnect to their spirit, heart, mind, and body with ease and grace. Throughout the class, St. Louis assisted them in stretching beyond their comfort zones and shared yoga wisdom as food for thought.

image

After class, Fontaine and Leeke had tea and hot chocolate at Coffee7. During their conversation, they started brainstorming about ways they could support each other in 2015 and beyond.

image

They also shared resources for their businesses and social media efforts. What an affirming #DigitalSisterhood Community experience!

image

Supporting digital sisters who own businesses is a great way to build #DigitalSisterhood Community. That’s what Leeke did when she visited Franklin Tree, a boutique specializing in vintage and handmade clothing and accessories established by Hymy and Lynn, on Brick Lane in East London.

Check out the grey cape and winter white coat she purchased from Franklin Tree.

As you prepare to leave 2014 behind and enter 2015 with great
expectations, think about the positive and affirning #DigitalSisterhood Community moments and relationships you have experienced. How can you expand on them in 2015?

Have a prosperous 2015!
