There have been quite a number of bloggers wanting to get involved with Thumbs Up! If you’re not quite sure what I’m talking about you can read the details here.
So here we are with the first official Thumbs Up! posting. Thanks to everyone who has contributed. I hope you’ll take the time to read through the posts and leave some comments for the bloggers who have participated.
Roger Carr highlights someone who is Rescuing Homeless And At Risk Youth To Make A Difference at his Everyday Giving Blog.
Melody at Aussie Adventures has done her bit to spread the love by pointing her readers to Thumbs Up!, encouraging them to get involved in giving others a pat on the back. Shannon at Divulgence is also pointing out the idea to his readers. Also adding Thumbs Up! badges to their sites are David of Pilgrim Scribblings and Pilgrim Pals as well as Susan from Susan’s Blog.
Millionaire Mommy Next Door presents a Recipe for Success, Wealth & Happiness.
Just to finish off this week, let me clarify the fact that the criteria for Thumbs Up! posts are outlined here and posts that don’t fit the guidelines will unfortunately be rejected. I’ve had a few submissions this time around that have simply been promoting the power of positive thinking or motivational stuff for getting rich which really isn’t what I’m setting out to highlight.
I’ve included a couple such posts because I still felt they had merit but I’ll need to be a little stricter with the guidelines from now on to ensure that Thumbs Up! doesn’t turn into something it was never meant to be. Sorry if yours was one of those rejected.
The essential criteria, as previously listed, is simply, “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.”
If you did submit a post but you haven’t been included feel free to email me. While I did reject a few submissions I would hate
to have missed any legitimate posts.
If you missed out on being a part of Thumbs Up! this week, get posting now and submit for next week.
