Blog Your Blessings


A couple of posts back, I floated the idea of a Sunday where Bloggers blogged about the good things in life; things that bring a smile on one's face, even in the most desperate situations. There are moments and people like these around us everywhere, all we have to do is look carefully.

For some reason, I did not get a lot of reponse to that. So I decided to go ahead with the name Blog Your Blessings , because that was the only name that got a vote and, I think, I like it too. You dont need to do a whole post, you can if you like, but just a few lines that spread the good vibes, will be good enough.


I tried to work on a few images to be used, to begin with, but my lack of ability in this aspect shows in the image that I have put up on this post. So, if anyone wants to make some better buttons and banners, they are welcome and I will put them up on my blog. A blogroll was also suggested, which I thought could wait till we have a sufficient number of people doing the BYB Sunday.

I hope we get a lot of people interested in this effort, because this world is a beautiful place and we neeed to appreciate it, and every once in a while we should take our time out to thank the Maker for giving us a chance to live this life. So every Sunday, Blog Your Blessings and spread the good word and a smile or many smiles.

I'd join in. Sometimes we all need to stop and reflect about the good things instead of all the negative. Start a blogroll!
