Permission to Speak Freely

Anne Jackson, blogger and author, just launched a book site for her new book Permission to Speak Freely. A few days before launch she posted a plea for some WordPress coding help on Twitter to which I happily responded. I helped tweak her site theme a bit to (1) accomplish some of her specific needs for this book site and (2) make it match the book’s cover artwork.

The concept of this book (and website) is really interesting as it serves as a place for anonymous confessions. Why is that helpful? Too often people hide their struggles because we think that we are the only ones who struggle with those issues. We have to look perfect because we think that the people around us are perfect… or something like that. A book/site like this is good–if for no other reason–because it helps us realize that we are not alone in our struggles.

So check out Permission to Speak Freely and leave a comment. Maybe you will find the confessions of others helpful, too.
