Lately, I've had this nagging feeling that the blogosphere is having a collective doooown period. It might be the darkness and rain. It might be a growing acceptance of pouty faces. It might just be my perception, or perhaps a fluke.
Regardless, I have this strong feeling that there needs to be more happinesses, more joy, more generosity, more support and love out there.
Yeah, I know - I'm such a hippie! ;)
Well... Here's my challenge to you:
Share the joy! Make someone happy! I want you to go out there and do something to bring some happiness into other people's life. Pay it forward! Change the world!
Here's the "catch":
If you leave a comment on this post, telling me what you did to ACTIVELY make someone else happy today (By actively I mean as in make the decision to spread some joy, and act on it. I don't mean everyday niceness, because I'm hoping that's natural to everyone - I mean the things that you choose to do, and then act on, as in handmaking and sending a card for someone just to say hi, paying the bus fare for someone who's forgotten their wallet, buying the cold meter maid a cup of coffee, baking a cake for your co-workers to enjoy during the coffee break ... and things like that.) I am gonna enter you in the drawing to win the new scrappy book that was just published in Sweden.
It won't be out in regular stores until MAY so you'd be getting yours way ahead of the rest of the people... and if you're extra nice, I might even sign it for you!! *giggles*
(Not so tempting? Yeah... Well, a girl can try to feel like a rockstar, right?!)
You can read a little bit more about the book here.
Yes, I will send internationally, if you think you could still be interested even if all the words are in Swedish? If you don't want to win the book, please, feel free to join in on the challenge anyway! Just state in your comment that you're not in the drawing, please.
...and of course, since this is all about sharing the joy - linking this post from FB, Twitter, blogspot, forums or whatever is a bonus and will get you one extra entry (leave one additional comment to tell me how and where you shared to receive that entry) but no linking is required, even if it'd make me happy.
Oh... And if you wanna follow my blog, that'd make me happy as well, but I'm not gonna try and persuade you by giving you an extra entry. All following is strictly by your choice.
This challenge closes on Thursday, December 2:nd at 9am, Swedish time.
