If you’ve known me for a while than you know that I’ve always been a fan of creating and publishing videos online. (Double Popped anyone?) I’m not sure why really. I just know that every since I can remember I’ve enjoyed documenting and sharing stories.
As I’ve gotten older I’ve also realized just how powerful stories are. Being Noah’s Dad has only further confirmed this. Our stories have power!
We live in a time like none other in history. Today anyone can share their story with the world. You don’t have to be famous, rich, or even good at telling narratives. You just have to tell it.
Noah’s dad’s on YouTube, how about you?
This is one of the reasons I started Noahs Dad Youtube Channel and started telling Noah’s story on our blog. When Noah was born I had a hard time finding videos about Down syndrome. I wanted to see what life was like for a family raising a child with Down syndrome. Sure, there were lots of really great blogs, but just not many videos.
So I decided to start telling our story via one minute, daily videos. And it’s been a life changing experience for us.
Noah’s Dad Facebook page recently passed 17,000 “fans;” although families is a better way to say it. If you browse Noah’s Facebook page you’ll family after family posting pictures, sharing stories, and encouraging others. It’s amazing, and I’m honored (and humble) to be on this journey with so many amazing families.
Many of which are telling their story.
If you’re on YouTube, take a second to subscribe to Noah’s Dad Channel, we’d love to meet (and swap videos) you.
If you have a blog I want to encourage you to keep it up. Even if you don’t consider yourself a “regular” blogger. It doesn’t matter. Just blog. Tell your story. You never know how your story could end up changing the world!
Do you have a blog? Let me know in the comments. If not, what are some other ways you tell your story? I want to hear about them.
