I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the joys of the blogging and how much love I feel from this community. I’ve made friends I never would have met otherwise, I’ve learned to actually look somewhat decent in make-up (nothing short of a miracle- trust me!), cook, express more love, and be inspired many other countless ways.
A few years ago I made a resolution to not hold back nice thoughts. Sometimes it’s telling a random stranger how pretty she is, that I like some one’s shoes, that their idea is so smart, or that I appreciate them working a holiday so I can enjoy their venue. Everyone needs validation, and if you think someone is awesome, why not tell them? The world needs more love, and I honestly believe it’s those small expressions that make all the difference!
It hit me, Valentine’s Day is only once a year, and doesn’t the world need some declarations of love more often? Shouldn’t this be more like once a month that we dedicate some time to express love and adoration? And then this crazy idea for a new blog series was born!
Every 14th of every month I’m going to host a link up called “Spreading the Love with Friday We’re in Love.” Every 14th I’m hoping other bloggers will join me in expressing their love for another blogger- or two, or three. All you need to do is create a post featuring 1-3 bloggers who inspire you, declare your love for their blog, a specific post, or them as a person. Write a couple sentences validating them, and then link up so others can share in the love-fest. It’s that simple!
I’ll be hosting my first link-up in 6 days- on May 14th and will continue to host one every month. Maybe I’ll be the only one, maybe a few of my friends will join, but I have high hopes to continue to make the blogging community a very connected, loving, positive place to be! Mark your calendars, we’re only 6 days away!
