I have lots of new followers now since being Freshly Pressed! Thanks and I hope you’ll stick around. Let me know if you like (or don’t like) what I have to say. It’s okay if you don’t agree, just be nice. If you’re not, your comment won’t show up anyway. That’s the way it is here at The Banter. Funny, smart, witty barbs and all that are very, very welcome. :).
For the past six weeks, I’ve started the week out with some kind of post focused on motivating me and hopefully, other readers out there as well. This one, fittingly, is about generosity.
If you’d like to read past Monday Musings and Motivations, click on the “Feel-Good Stuff” tab at the top of my blog.
Some great bloggers that I follow have been “talking” about listing their favorite blogs in a post. Others have been throwing around the idea of someone guest posting. It’s really about generosity — sharing ideas, introducing their favorites to other’s favorites. It grows and spreads out and before you know it, your blog is humming along out there and people are reading and “listening.”
Please check out my updated blogroll where you’ll find blogs that I frequent. I do so because they always, always respond when I leave a comment. Some are hilarious, some inspirational. There’s comedians there, writers, poets, mothers, guys, girls, and everyone in-between. I have a full and eclectic range of interests and love to read these blogs. What all of them have in common is kindness — they respond and treat their readers with respect.
Visit some and/or all. If you decide it’s not your thing, it’s okay. We’re all adults with different interests. That’s what is so great about all this. I get to write, which I love to do and some people may find that interesting. How great is that?
Anyway, hope you stumble across a great blog today that speaks to you, births an idea, makes you smile, laugh, dance, jump up and down, gets you to thinking, gives you a new perspective or inspires you to finish that novel you’ve been writing for years and you just have a few chapters left to actually do it, do it, do it!!
That last one is the one I’m looking for. ;).
Below are a few of my brand new followers with short descriptions about what their blogs are about. There’s no rhyme or reason to this list, they’re in no particular order — just scanned through my dashboard and picked out a few, totally at random.
Spread the generosity. Why not write your own blog, featuring some of your new followers? I’ll list others, sporadically and randomly, in future posts and as time allows.
