THE WEEKEND DRIVE-BY / A Kind-Hearted Blogger



A SUNNY SUNDAY MORNING DESERVED AN EXTRA POST ;)
I'VE HAD A COUPLE REALLY BLOG-BUSY WEEKS, AND I HAVE SO MANY THINGS TO POST, SO I THOUGHT I'D JUST DO A SUNDAY DRIVE-BY ! THE POP-IN ....
( AGAIN WITH THE NAUTICAL STRIPED WONDER-TOP ;)

THIS WEEK I HAVE 2 INTERVIEWS TO POST, SOME FUN OUTFITS I REALLY LIKE, AND SOME NEW SHOES I GOTTA SHOW OFF ;) 
PLUS A KICK-@SS VINTAGE HAT I ACQUIRED LAST WEEK.


I AM STILL LEARNING HOW TO 'TWEET' AND A BIG "HI" TO MY NEW BLOG BUDDIES. HAVE YOU GUYS NOTICED THAT FOLLOWERS AND COMMENTS AREN'T AS PLENTIFUL ON GOGGLE AS THEY WERE JUST A YEAR AGO? IT'S DUE TO FACEBOOK AND TWITTER CONNECTIONS. 
MUCH EASIER AND QUICKER. 
HIGHLY RECOMMEND ANYONE WHO ISN'T ON THE TWO, TO GET HOOKED UP. IT'S ANOTHER FUN WAY TO COMMUNICATE ! 
(ESPECIALLY TWITTER )

AS I WAS READING OVER IFB THIS WEEKEND, AND NOTICING THE GROWING PANGS THAT SEEM TO BE FLOODING BLOG-DONIA, I MADE A LIST OF THINGS I HOPE TO START DOING AND REMEMBERING WHEN I SEE OR HEAR THE NEGATIVE THINGS THAT CAN PULL COMMUNITIES APART. 

HERE'S WHAT I CAME UP WITH:
  1. I CAN FIND SOMETHING POSITIVE ABOUT EVERY BLOG, OR SAY NOTHING AT ALL.
  2. I CAN BE POWERFUL WITHOUT OVER-POWERING OTHERS
  3. I CAN CELEBRATE OUR DIFFERENCES WITHOUT COMPROMISING MY OWN STYLE VOICE
  4. PULLING OTHERS DOWN, DOESN'T LIFT ME UP (I DON'T NEED TO JUDGE OTHERS)
  5. I CAN SET A GOOD EXAMPLE BY BEING A KIND-HEARTED BLOGGER
  6. I DON'T NEED TO COMPARE MYSELF, WE ALL ARE UNIQUELY SPECIAL
  7. I WILL BELIEVE IN MYSELF
  8. THERE IS ENOUGH ROOM FOR EVERYBODY, EACH STYLE VOICE IS VALUABLE
  9. I CAN LEARN SOMETHING FROM EVERYONE, EVEN IF THEIR STYLE IS DIFFERENT THAN MINE
  10. IT IS WHAT IT IS - A PERSONAL STYLE BLOG - NOTHING MORE ............
(click image for details and link)


AS A KIND-HEARTED BLOGGER I PLEDGE TO:
  • create, inspire, and admire rather than compete with fellow bloggers
  • be understanding of each other-- in the blogging community, as well as in the world
  • stay away from internet/blogging bullying
  • speak my opinion freely, while still being mindful of other's feelings-- be tactful.
  • make an effort--no matter how big or small the gesture, to spread kindness or joy to others
  • acknowledge that I will make mistakes, (I am only human) but remember to learn from them
  • know that at times I will post about the negative stuff in life, and maybe even some complaining (I am only human) but I will always follow up with something happy/positive too.
  • believe that this world is a good place, filled with good people.
HERE'S TO A GREAT WEEK !

Hi Reva, Thanks to you, I just added the widget for the pledge to my site! What a great way to end a Sunday...everything you said here is such great advice to us all! Thanks for your sweet heart!

I was wondering where all of the comments had gone. I actually opened a new Twitter account for the blog a few weeks ago (I use one for professional communications) but haven't done anything with it yet. I guess I'll have to get tweeting!

Your pledge for compassion and kindness is so wonderful. I definitely try my best to follow it too.

Terri said...

I'm going to take this pledge too. It will pop up on my site come Wednesday. Thank YOU for always being a kind-hearted blogger.

This is such a cute outfit -- reminds me of the Raggedy Ann doll I had as a kid.

Rules to not just blog by, but live by. I'm considering it a refresher course for "Being A Decent Human 101". Thanks for that. Love the outfit-- so playful!

Reva, wonderful guidelines and as it's already been pointed out; guidelines for living as well. I don't know why it's so difficult to just be kind? Love to you girly! ~Serene

Good pledge- you were already doing those things but now it's in writing.
And here's a tip for twitter: make it easy to have followers get to your site- always post your link in short form- use tinyurl.com or my fave: http://bit.ly/
