the glimpstory idea, revisited

As if I don’t already have enough friggin’ websites, I’ve been thinking about what I might do with glimpstory.com. The original idea in 2011 was to invite others to share glimpses of their lives in exactly 140 characters (including the ‘#glimpstory’ hashtag) on twitter and to aggregate those stories at the glimpstory domain. I was posting my own little stories and hoped others would get the idea but I never promoted it (I like to create but I’m not wild about self-promotion). It never caught on but I still like the idea.

In another life, I was an administrative assistant to a partner of a large accounting firm. He invited me to lunch one day at his club (i.e., he was a member). There’s a long story I could tell about it but I won’t. I like the glimpstory better:

He cringed as I picked up the pastry with my hands. What people think is no more relevant than the images we hide in our hearts.
