I absolutely cringe when someone calls me an “Influencer”. Yes, I know – these days it’s a collective term to describe anyone that has a platform online and that does include my little corners on the internet. However, the title is something I can’t get used to. My purpose on my platforms is to inspire rather than influence, but anyway – that’s a topic for another day.
But when I positively “influence” someone who I am married to – I will gladly grab that title with both hands, especially when it relates to one of my absolute favourite things – books!
