What’s Your Story in Six Words?

A friend of mine recently sent me an article from Etsy – the online community for buyers and sellers of handmade goods. The focus of
the article was to teach their artisan sellers how to tell a good story about the products that they sell on Etsy.com. If you haven’t heard Etsy’s story, then you should know that they built up their user base by empowering their sellers to help tell the Etsy story on their behalf. They also share frequent stories about their sellers on their blog.

What was really inspiring about the Etsy article that I read was the idea of summing up one’s story in six words. Apparently, Hemingway was once asked to write a short story in six words. This idea was recently picked up by Smith Magazine who challenged their readers to write their own story in six words.

I also believe that it’s important to make your long story short before telling your ongoing story to customers. Therefore, I feel that it is my duty to write my own short story. After all, if I can’t make my own long story short then I shouldn’t be advising others to do the same.

So, here is my six word story for the world to hear: Passionate Canadian digital media trend storyteller

Now that I have shared my story with you, I’d love to hear yours!
