Hello Everybody, When I came in today other than following up on the music trivia I wasn’t sure what I would end up blogging about today. Lately I have been seeing a lot of people talk about getting these blogging awards. So that triggered my idea for today’s post.
Every once in a while I will do a post where I will just recommend other bloggers and point you in the direction of their posts. Initially I would do 5 at a time and I believe the 2nd time was 5 as well and now it will be smaller than that. I think we should just be kind for the sake of being kind. I am not sure if I am being cynical or not but it seems like being nominated for one of those awards is like a chain mail scheme without money being involved. The currency instead of money is popularity. Nobody loses or gains money but they gain followers. The more I think about what goes on, hey I have nominated you now you have to nominate 5-11 people and you in return for this exposure that I gave you of course have to expose my blog to all of your readers by tagging me. I did for you, you do for me and then you do for 5-11 more people and you have to spend about 30minutes of your time answering all these questions. Seems like people are basically just paying a price for getting some free pub.
When I give somebody love and mention their posts and try to send my few readers to somebody else there are no strings attached. I mention you, give you a shout out and that’s it. You don’t have to answer 20 questions, you don’t have to tag me on your post you don’t have to nominate 10 other people, no scheme no grand master plan just free pub for you no strings. We give to others just to give, in AA we talk about you have to give it away to keep it. Those who go to AA know what I’m talking about. Today I wanted to give a shout out to a blogger who I think really needs to be shown a lot of support. I don’t know her, I have never interacted with her. I literally decided to randomly pick a sobriety blog read about it and pass it on. And after reading this blog I really think this woman needs to be listened to, she needs to be supported and she needs the strength of those who can offer it. This is a strong blog about the real struggles of trying to get sober. Please support the blog Struggles with alcohol.
