Times have been tough for a lot of us recently, but I’ve noticed something very peculiar about the online community:
You’re there for one another regardless of how bad things gets. You’re there when something bad happens to send words of encouragement. You’re there to support families going through difficult times. You’re there to laugh when it’s all too ridiculous. You’re there at all hours of the day and night.
You all amaze us; we want to thank you for being who you are.
You’re the Blogosphere’s superheros.
Instead of asking for something she wanted on her birthday – as we’re all accustomed to (self included….have you seen my amazon wishlist?!) – she was giving a diamond oval pendant away to others. Her winner, Jenn, was amazing when she won too. She was so thankful that she wanted to do something to give back as well.
Let’s keep the tradition alive and continue to Pay it Forward from blog to blog. Kat won. She hosted a contest. Jenn won that one and now she’s hosting the first official “Pay if Forward GEMaffair.com Contest”
Let’s keep the contest going as long as we can and pass along the good, the swag and the fun.
Entry is easy: just say something positive about yourself or someone else. Take a moment to think about everything you do for other people. Think about everything other people do for you. Some of these amazing people may exist to us only online, but the friendships built are solid. The words of encouragement we give and receive help when times are tough. So let’s celebrate it. Let’s Pay it Forward.
One lucky winner (chosen by random.org)will receive a diamond journey pendant, but all of you will have either said something good about yourself or someone else. It’s kind of a win-win situation.
Of course, there are additional ways to earn extra entries, but they’re all outlined on Jenn’s blog. Since this is *hopefully* going to be an ongoing thing, we’re leaving it up to the contest holder to decide how they want to offer extra entries.
