WARM FUZZIES!

PajamaMama has christened the next few days:
Bloggin’ Good Blogger Days”

Your mission, shall you choose to accept it (and you will), is to go to as many blogs as you can and point out at least one good thing about the author of that blog. Do your best to give them a warm fuzzy feeling. Show your appreciation, admiration or plain old joy.
Tell them why something they did touched you, why a choice they made shows the true fabric of their moral being. Just go BE NICE to every blogger who’s blog you read today. And don’t be shy, either!!
Plus, post an entry similar to this one on YOUR blog and ask people to leave warm fuzzies in your comments. Spread the love, people!

Maybe if we take a week to engage in warm fuzzies, they will become a more permanent part of our daily lives, both on and off the computer.
In review:
1. Leave me a warm fuzzy in my comments.
2. Post a similar entry (or copy and paste this one, giving credit) on your own blog.
3. Leave a warm fuzzy on every blog you visit today.
4. Sit back, read your own warm fuzzies and feel, well, warm and fuzzy!
Enjoy!

All credit to her, esp for the body of this post. I love the idea, and liked how she phrased it, so I pretty much copied the instructions.

Nothing like a little good karma to make everyone happy!

I have been looking for a new layout for my blog... and I love your template. I would like to use it, and tweak it to be my own. Mind if I ask where you got it... or is it your own design?

I'm not that smart. :P

I'm going to leave some warm fuzzies after this birthday party event. Until then, I'll leave you a link you'll love:

You mean I'm not always warm and fuzzy? Darn.

How about if I tell you how pleased I am to have made a new blogging friend?

I admire your honesty and your courage.

OMFG EDEN What IS IT with some people who blog that they cannot take ANYONE not liking them? Half the time the "mommybloggers" like to pretend they're so accepting and open, and the minute someone gets annoyed with the CONSTANT kidtalk, then it's gunsablazing, here comes dubya. JESUS.

MANY of us, even with kids, do NOT want to talk about them all freaking day long. My kids are cute, but not THAT cute. And if I was in an environment, where all other people did was talk about their kids, I'd get annoyed as well. I can totally see her point, but the reactions of some of the other bloggers-PRICELESS. Generally speaking, people don't get that annoyed unless something is true.

I do not get it. I suppose freedom of speech only counts if people agree with you OR you can totally trash talk them in response...sigh...I couldn't comment, but I wanted to. Why do some people assume that because you don't want to hear about kids all the time, you hate kids? What was THAT bit?

Granny Awwww-thanks. Make sure to put this on your blog!

Thordora, I have only been reading your blog for a couple of weeks, but I must say I love the honesty of your posts. Yes, motherhood and life in general is not easy and the way you let people know about the downs and ups is refreshing. I also love hearing about life nearly home. (I am from NS but am living in Vancouver.) Keep it up.

Oh, I just have to reply to "Thordora" here, since she's shut off comments on her own blog. I can't let this one go!

Since this comment is in reply to something I started, I do take it rather personally and can't help but feel as if I may be one of the "mommy bloggers" you are referring to. Bloggin' Good Blogger Days came out of a comment I received that made me feel amazing. I wanted to pass that on to others in a time when bloggers seem to be at one another and encased in so much negativity (which is easily seen in the comment wars regarding your "I hate mommy bloggers" posts.)

As for being afraid of not being liked, trust me, I have PLENTY of people who don't like me. More than I care to mention or give the time of day too. That's their perogative. I don't lose any sleep over it.

I may be a mommy blogger, but that label applies to me because I am a mother who blogs. I do NOT talk incestantly about my children. I am a PERSON who has children. While they are the main priority in my life, I have an identy OUTSIDE of my children and my role as a mother and wife. I resent your stereotype.

I do not talk about my kids all day long. Until recently, I barely spoke of them at all. My blog is MY area for MY thoughts and MY words. Not my kids. MINE.

You can trash the mommy bloggers all you want. I personally feel everyone is entitled to their opinion. I couldn't care less if you agree with me or not (or vice versa). I'm not a "my way or the highway" of person. But instead of finding that out for yourself, you chose to put me in a group simply because I have children.

Trust me, if I'm out in public without my children, they are the LAST thing I want to talk about.

I don't read political blogs because I don't get into politics. If you don't like mommy bloggers, then don't read them. But must you trash them?

Sorry Mama-my comment was directed at the link that Eden sent, not you. I LOVE this idea of yours.

I don't trash all mommybloggers-some are quite cool, but some are just not nice, period. That applies to all bloggers, but I find that sometimes the "mommy" subset feel more maligned than other groups, and tend to get over excited, that'a all.

My main argument is that just as everyone says Sherri doesn't have to read their blogs, no one had to go to hers either and read it. So it works both ways.

And I didn't mean anything against you-I hope you don't think that.

oh, and thank you Gwen! Honesty is a blessing and a curse, since I also have foot in mouth disease sometimes...

Thanks for the link. I actually found the template a few mins after i left that comment. I guess we have the same template now. Lol.
