It is fantastic to know you can change the world right where you are with what you have. Once upon a time, people had to be rich, famous or powerful to change the world, thankfully those days are long gone. Today anyone with a smart phone can start a blog and start changing the world. The world is a better place because of that! Three years ago I started blogging in part as a way to change the world, my world. I wrote uplifting motivational paragraphs and published them via a blog that almost no on read and on Facebook. As time passed, I got better at social writing which was vastly different from the writing I had been doing in my law practice. I learned about HTML coding, themes, WordPress and plugins. My blog, Janeane’s World became a destination place for thousands of people each month. I began to influence and change the world around me.
A year ago, I co-founded a website and Facebook group called Pushing Lovely dedicated to pushing women writers to reach the dreams the have set for themselves. Over the course of the past year we have worked together and helped each other change our individual worlds and the world at large. Through collective effort and determination, these women are now changing the world with their blogs, social media presence and community service. They can be found speaking at major conferences across the country. They are world changers and influencers I am proud to know.
As I said, I am a world changer. All of this was accomplished from a laptop computer in my home office. In all my social writing I encourage women to take action now to follow their dreams, to stop procrastinating and to kick up how they their businesses. In all these things I am changing the world. I am making the world a better place. Just as I am doing it from my laptop, table or smart phone, anyone can do it. As the saying goes, people who want to accomplish something find a way and people who don’t want to accomplish something find an excuse. If you want to change the world, use what you have to make it happen.
I encourage everyone who has a cause they care about to turn to social media and start writing about it. In order to be a world changer, an activist, or a person that matters, you do not have to pick a big grandiose cause championed by superstars. Is your children’s home and school association important to you? Is your daughter’s girl scout troop doing good deeds in your community? Do you have a gift for comedy and the ability to uplift with your humorous stories? If you answered yes to any of these questions or one like it, you can be a world changer, a woman of influence and a voice for change.
If you want to change the world, influence society and make the world better, stop talking about it. Start doing it! Pull out your smart phone right now and write a Facebook status about something that matters to you. Go on Twitter and write a tweet to share your message. Start a blog and share your ideas. Recently, a friend told me it doesn’t have to be perfect to be profitable. In other words, don’t wait for the perfect vehicle to share your message. Start where you are and with what you have.
In conclusion, it is fantastic to know you can change the world right where you are with what you have. So, the question for you this fantastic day is, do you want to change the world? If so grab your phone and go!

Spreading the word goes a lot faster in todays world with social media.
People always say social media cripples our society. I disagree. I think it strengthens it IF we use it the right way.
It amazes me how today’s technology has empowered anyone to make a difference. We all have a voice…you just have to use the tools at your disposal.
Yes – social media can definitely help spread the word. It’s a powerful tool that should be used for good more often.
A lot of people talk about doing things but are too scared to try it. I am trying to make my dreams come true. Fail or succeed, at least I tried. 🙂
social media has given us many new ways to share and cheer others. It can be a quick way to rally others for good and bad.
It’s true. Social media so incredibly powerful at getting the word out.
Social media is so helpful to me when I need something, a quick question or inspiration for something I’m working on. However, it is only helpful if you give what you take!
Social Media is a blessing and a curse. I’m thrilled to see people using it to bless others and I hope I use it in way that makes a difference in others lives too. My blogs states many of its causes on the front page but there are many others I support too.
Social Media can be such a force for good if we all would just use it that way!!
Social media is so amazing to me. In seconds you can see how what you posted, shared or said impacts others by likes, RTs, Pins or shares. However, it only works if you are being authentic about yourself, thoughts, beliefs or feelings!
It’s amazing the reach we can achieve through social media, and to think that reach was far less great 20 years ago.
I like the idea of starting now. Removing the excuses is always the perfect way to get started. 🙂
Oh, I love this! You can totally change the world right from your phone, your computer!
I love this! We can reach SO MANY people through social media and blogs and things online! I need to concentrate more on empowering messages through social media 🙂
There’s so much power we have at our fingertips with social media. When it’s used for good it’s amazing
Great post. I love this because everyone can be positive, if they really try. Happiness and positivity is contagious.
Social media can be very useful but it has its negatives influences as well. I believe in the old fashion, southern lend a helping hand as my contribution to making a change.
I love this! I slowly started once and then it just fell apart. I really need to get back into it! Thank for sharing this – its quite inspiring!
I am passionate about many causes, so I love how I can share that passion right from my phone. Social media has an amazing!
I do! 🙂 My favorite quote is “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” I wear a ring with it on it every day!
It really is amazing how much reach and influence we can have right from our phone.
Very true, because you really never know who your words will and can reach and the impact it will have.
Hahahaha… I can’t change anything using my old phone, but my Hubs has an iPhone so I let him go at it. I love using socia media though.
I think people underestimate the power of social media sometimes, and it’s really not something to be taken lightly!
Social media is a great way to spread the word about a cause you are passionate about or support. It’s amazing the length of reach you can achieve by tweeting and sharing.
Each year I pick a cause to help and to make a difference. A cause I am passion about and close to my heart. This year my cause is the National Canine Cancer Foundation. I will be doing things all year long to improve awareness and help raise money for the cause.
