Alright. Raise your hand if you’ve read my last post “An Inspiration and An Announcement”.
Ooh. Nice, nice. I applaud you all! You get little gold star stickers for being such good readers. Ahem, correction. If I had gold star stickers you would get one. I don’t have stickers. Sorry if I had to crush any dreams there.
And if this is your first time here? Good news! You would get a gold star sticker, too! Welcome to my little humble abode of a blog. I just have to explain a little of this post before moving on.
In my last blog entry, I discussed the possibility of publishing some fantabulous, encouraging, smile-worthy entries on Wednesdays to get you through that tiring ol’ week of yours. The plan is not to do those common “I believe in you” stuff, but to branch out to real and amazing things that are going on in your life, your community, and worth-while activities that are helping the place in which we live. These are meant to be posts about making a difference where you are in life.
And oh, by the way…if your hand is still up, you can put it down now. Your dedication is admirable. Here’s a gold star.
Well, I was thinking to myself last night about how I was going to orchestrate everything, “How in the WORLD am I going to come up with material every week of things going on in the community if I’m stuck in my little ol’ small town in Pennsylvania?” It would definitely limit my writing, that’s for sure. Plus, I wanted to hear what YOU (all of you!) have to say.
So. That’s when I came up with my challenge to you.
Your mission, if you should choose to accept it, is to send in stories, quotes, and articles that you’ve written that will make us smile and inspire us to go out and do something good for our community and the people around us. If it be something your local animal shelter is doing, a story of you and your kids going on that big road trip you’ve always wanted to go on, non-profits that are spreading love, you got that huge promotion at work, something sweet you did for a stranger or a stranger did for you, any little thing! Please, do not hesitate to send them in.
Also, please, use discretion in what you are sending in. Do not send in controversial and questionable material. We want everyone- of every race, religion, height, weight, whatever, to be smiling alongside one another.
If you are at all interested in sending, please talk to me about it by emailing the address I am giving below and you can talk to me about some of your ideas! If you already have your idea and want to just roll with it, just send all your lovely pieces, including any images you would wish to include (in JPG format) to the email email@example.com
I will review them and each week I’ll post another one of your stories (or even a few of them) on Wednesday! There’s a very good chance that you’ll be featured.
Ummm. What are you still doing here?? Send in all your little gems right away! Your entries don’t have to be a book length-wise. Just send in things that have made your heart happy. We need posts that will spur us on to spread smiles.
Can’t wait to see what we get!
Let’s have fun with this
P.S. I’m going on a little day trip, so I may not be able to respond right away! Just know that I’ll get back to you in the evening!
