I‘m starting to get some more detailed ideas about the Indonesian Expatriates Forum that I initiated a week a go. Please take a look, and if you have any suggestion, don’t hesitate to let me know, whether through this blog or to my email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
As an amateur in the virtual world, I dream big, so big that some of my friends think that it’s impossible to do. A single person, initiates a forum to connect all Indonesians around the world? Am I mental?
But actually my idea and dream is very simple, and it only takes a willingness to get there. There is no money involved, there is no deadline or time line that I have to obey, there is no failure possibility, there is no feasible risk at stake, so why can’t we do it? Look at Expatwomen website, it is initiated by two women. Two. And look at the website now, you’d be surprised that they actually have started it a year a go. (You see, this is a different attitude of Indonesians vs. Westerners, that we are usually so pessimistic about everything, even we are taught to be ashamed of our own success, while Westerners generally have positive attitude, always say that everything is possible and achievable, and they put trust on other people. But more about that later).
At the moment only myself and Andie who commit to be contributors, although we haven’t discuss thoroughly what we have to do each, but at least we are getting somewhere.
I also need big help from all Indonesians from all around to world to keep spreading news and information about this forum and to keep me informed about Indonesians living overseas.
One step at a time. I’ll see you there…
