Warm the Globe Thru Friendship

One of my blogging buddies from Pennsylvania, Jeni of Down River Drivel, recently posted about a new concept started by fellow blogger Vic Grace, from British Columbia called:

To quote Jeni's post:
"As we are all aware, blogging does give us the opportunity to reach out and yes, "touch someone" by our words, pictures, links in our blogs, and by our comments to fellow bloggers as well.

Think about this - in a world today that is too often filled with news of wars all over the world, fears about terrorism, following newspaper and TV news reports about crime, gangs, and you name it of all the bad things we hear about everyday, wouldn't it be a wonderful thing if we, each of us blogging in our own little space, could actually spread the word through friendship and help, through that little bit of effort, to bring people together, united in a common goal of international friendship?

If you like this concept - and who wouldn't, really - then add this badge to your sidebar, along with the link Vic has provided there. Then copy the text below and put this into a post on your blog. Follow that by tagging other bloggers to start sending this message around the world- hopefully, in less than 80 days too!"
If you'd like to participate in Vic Grace's effort to "warm the globe through friendship" all you have to do is copy this post with the list of links below and add your link at the end. Hopefully when someone sees it on your blog, they will do the same and in that way it will reach more and more people. If you'd like to "tag" some folks then you can certainly do that, too - which is exactly what Jeni did in order to get the word out.

Now then, as Ben says on the Discovery Channel's game show Cash Cab that takes place in a New York City cab - "are you in?"

    It was trickier than I thought! Huh!
    Glad you got there.
    p.s. I visited earlier to read your previous post and it wouldn't load.

  2. Welcome aboard, Linda! Glad to see you got around to doing this one, not that I didn't think you'd join forces with us, just wondering, with your schedule, when you'd be able to make the time to do it.
    I post a comment to your travel to the U.K. post but I don't think it went through. Blogger and the comments thing here just doesn't seem to agree with me, likes to be really difficult, for sure! I liked the add-on you post to the Warm the Globe post too - "Are you in?" Yep and bring as many as you can with you too!

  3. So many great blogs, so little time... I think this is a really good idea, and I'm going to have to add to my list.

  4. Thanks Linda...I did this one too. Have a great day. :)


Thanks for visiting!
