It’s Monday morning here in Australia and even Problogger’s suffer from ‘Mondayitis’ and find it hard to get themselves going. However today has been a little different – for some reason today there’s a little extra inspiration in my inbox.
You see today I had three completely unsolicited ‘thank you’ emails from readers.
I’m lucky enough to get these sorts of emails from time to time and can’t express how much energy that I find they give me.
I’m declaring today Blogger Appreciation Day [UNOFFICIAL]!
I’ve been chatting with a few bloggers of late who’ve been feeling a little down in the dumps about their blogging – so perhaps everyone could do with a little lift.
Lets spend today doing a few random acts of kindness and encouragement for our fellow bloggers.
I’m not writing this in the hope of getting more emails myself (I’ve got my share for today already) – but instead want to encourage you to take a moment to email another blogger and to thank them for something that you’ve appreciated about what they’ve done lately. In a sense it’s a ‘Pay it Forward’ exercise.
Some might see it as a marketing or networking exercise (and it might actually pay off) – but I just think it’s good kharma and part of being a blogger.
We’re in it together, blogging is about collaboration and together going further than we can by ourselves – so why not help another blogger today by shooting them a word of encouragement, a pep talk, a congratulations, an idea to help them improve or some other positive constructive message. Better still, do it publicly on your blog and tell the world about another blogger who you appreciate.
