Being an original is so hard when so many want to be copy cats. Doing something new, innovative and exciting takes a lot of hard work. I think of people who were brave to create things that made the world a better place.
WordPress.com as a social blogging platform is full of original and creative people doing interesting things. Being original means standing out from the rest. It’s encouraging when original people empower others to be original themselves.
On a personal level being original means marching to the beat of your own drummer. It is sad when originality and individuality are met with criticism. Always be you, always be original.
