Tell a Blogger You Love Them Day


Small Business Ideas Forum

A friendly place to find help & encourage one another

You know those chain emails you get from people that you usually delete before you even open them? Well, this one landed in my spam folder the other day, and I must embarrassingly admit, I was moved by it.

Inspiration found in my spam folder? Uh, yeah!
1. There are at least two people in this world that you would die for.
2. At least 15 people in this world love you in some way.
3. The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you.
4. A smile from you can bring happiness to anyone, even if they don’t like you.
5. Every night, someone thinks about you before they go to sleep.
6. You mean the world to someone.
7. You are special and unique.
8. Someone that you don’t even know exists loves you.
9. When you make the biggest mistake ever, something good comes from it.
10. When you think the world has turned its back on you take another look.
11. Always remember the compliments you received. Forget about the rude remarks.

I especially love #8, because there have been a couple of times when a reader has sent me a private email, saying I have made a difference (Shhhhh….. these make me cry!). Usually they are from people who I haven’t heard from before.

Tell a Blogger You Love Them DaySo this is my totally informal, off the cuff, completely impulsive challenge to you.

Go off and leave a comment on a blog today that you like, one that you have never before commented on.

To suddenly find out that someone you don’t even know exists loves you will leave you and that person feeling all warm and toasty inside. :D

    Ah, Wendy…at the risk of over-commenting and potential accusations of being your blog stalker,
    I Love You, Girl!

    Have a great day,

    p.s. I talked about you on Random Rebel today:

    Nice spam indeed. And right up there with the concept of “pay it forward.”

    Spread the love!

    I love this idea. I love it so much, that I may just “steal” it! :-D

    To be honest I am not so sure number three is correct…
    “The only reason anyone would ever hate you is because they want to be just like you”
    Are you sure about this?
    I mean, come on, if you hate somebody it means you want to be just like him?!

    Yeah, I’m kinda with Alienatu on that number three jobber! That’s something our parents used to tell us when we were in school to make us feel better. There are people out there, albeit very few, that I truly despise, but am quite certain it’s not because I want to be like them.

    As for getting teary eyed? You just made me think of ONE more reason why working at home is so great! No mascara runs! :D

    Once in a while a forward captures my attention too. It’s not so weird :)

    Very appropriate thought, Wendy. The only time I have ever really been moved in my short blogging career was a time I left an innocuous little “cheer up” comment to a fellow blogger who seemed to be going through a pretty rough patch.

    I receive the most heartfelt email from of all people, his dad, thanking me and telling me how I would never know how much that little message of encouragement meant at the time he received it. This guy wasn’t a kid, wasn’t a close friend or anything, but apparently he was much lower than I imagined and my little vote of encouragement meant much. much more than it seemed to to me. You just never know for sure how a kind word can help … and hey … they are free, what could it cost versus what it could mean.

    I talk a lot about ROI meaning it in the sense of dollars and cents, but real ROI can mean so much more. Thanks for a timely and thoughtful post.

    Hi Wendy. I know you don’t know me, but I have been reading your blog for a couple of weeks now. This is my first comment here, and I just want to tell you, that you are a very good person. Keep doing what you’re doing. Thanks.

    @ Dave Starr - I couldn’t agree with you more! This comment literally changed my life, and is my most favorite comment on the entire blog (even moreso than Guy Kawasaki’s and Darren Rowse’s comments!!)
