Thumbs Up!

Want to highlight someone making a positive difference?

Is there a blogger who deserves a pat on the back or simply something that has you feeling thankful this week?

The blogosphere can sometimes be a pretty negative place so I reckon it’s great to make a habit of accentuating the positive.

I want to link to a number of bloggers who are writing positive posts each week.

Do you want to be a part of the positive? You can post a thank you to someone, a list of reasons you’re thankful this week, or highlight people doing something worthwhile in your community. You don’t have to post every week but it’d be wonderful if you’re prepared to make the effort to write a positive post most weeks.

If you’re willing to jump in and give it a go, just copy the code from the box below and insert it into your blog post to display the Thumbs Up! badge. (Like the one in the top corner of this post.) Don’t sweat it if you don’t feel technically confident enough to add the badge. I can give you some help if you need it or just simply post without it, however you must link back to this post.

I’ve also been asked about a smaller badge for sidebars. You can copy the following code for a smaller badge.

Write your post any time during the week then email me or simply enter your post details via the Thumbs Up! Blog Carnival submission form. Once you’ve entered the permalink URL of your post, the form fills in most of the details for you.

I reserve the right to reject submissions that don’t fit the criteria outlined above.

At the start of every week I’ll write a post that links to everyone who’s participated over the past seven days.

20 Thoughts on “Thumbs Up!

  1. Hello RRodney,

    That’s a super idea! I would love to contribute weekly.

    I tried to put the log thumbs up but it is interfering with the look of my page. I’m on Blogger. Could you give me some help please? Thanks,


  2. Rodney,

    Outstanding! I’m in!

  3. I just might do this sometime soon. I read a heap of blogs and some of them are very deserving of this!!

  4. I’m in too! I’m gonna try and go all techo and add the badge :)

  5. Hhhmmmmm. Could I do this? Maybe!!!!

    Hi Rodney,

    I came upon your site via Shannon’s Divulgence. I’ve enjoyed immensely reading some of your posts, and think this is an excellent initiative. I hope to regularly contribute to it. Thanks!

  11. Hi Rodney,

    You received my first submission today.

  12. What a great idea. Of course I read it after I’d written an entry called “I Hate them all” (about my dogs waking me up too early in the morning), so that doesn’t really qualify…but I’ll be back!

    I’m here, this time, via “That’s My Answer,” BTW.

  13. Rodney,

    I think this is a great idea. I’ve added buttons for this post and the carnival form to my sidebar. I hope the idea really takes off.

  14. I would love to nominate a wonderful, POSITIVE blogger!!

    Her name is Merle. I’ve just posted a special nomination of her blog because her style is always so positive. IN so many ways. {My blog’s permalink for the nomination is here.

    Merle’s blog is called “Third Try” The url is

    I do hope you agree that she is deserving and will add her/her blog to your Thumbs Up list!!

  15. Hi Rodney!
    Great idea!
    I’ll be thinking about it.
    Best to you!
