Sometimes, an oversight can lead to a serendipitous moment. For example, I started a link up for the inspirational participants of the #write31day challenge the first Monday of October. Throughout the month I met a lot of great bloggers through the link ups, but I discovered that reading and pinning and tweeting about each post in the link up caused a big strain on my Mondays (which already have enough going on between teaching full time, extra duty and doing evening reading club for my students who’ve fallen behind on their reading goals).
And then I discovered that an online blogger acquaintance already HAD a link up on Mondays for inspirational bloggers…and the names only had one letter difference. Thus the serendipity. Her link up was on hiatus while she was out of the country. She graciously pointed out that our link ups had similar names and purposes and suggested that maybe we could join forces. Brilliant idea! I’ll join her link up as one of four hostesses and then everyone wins. Four hostesses who will advertise and promote the link up. Four hostesses who will visit all of the links and do our best to get the word out about the inspiration ya’ll bring to the table each week.
So, I hope you continue to link up, build community and find Inspiration for your Monday! I’ll be retiring the “Inspire Me Mondays” graphic–so make sure you use the new one!
Here are the lovely co-hostesses of Inspire Me Monday: Angie Ryg, Cindy Krall, and Denise J. Hughes
What’s your inspirational story? Link up below, and don’t forget the 1-2-3s of building community:
1. Link up your most inspirational post from the previous week (just ONE, please).
2. Vist TWO other contributors (especially the person who linked up right before you) and leave an encouraging comment.
3. Spread the cheer THREE ways! Tweet something from a post you read, share a post on your Facebook page, stumble upon it, pin it or whatever social media outlet you prefer–just do it!
Please link back to this week’s post or add the button to your post so that we can spread the inspirational cheer :).
