GBE 2: Blog On -- Week #83 “--------”
The world is filled with love, beauty, and limitless possibility. It is also filled with heartache, sadness, and unthinkable tragedy. This week, I’m not going to tell you what to write about, or even to write at all. Instead, I’m asking you to simply follow your heart. Blog, if you’d like, and if you do, please share the link to your post here. Write whatever moves you, write from your heart, and write whatever you feel a need to say. Or don’t.
Maybe this week, we should slide our keyboards back into their drawers and hug one another. Maybe we should look around at the other human beings who share our space and reach out to them to let them know how precious they are, how important. How lost and bereft we would be without them.
Life is fragile. Embrace it. Celebrate it. And be ever grateful for your dearest blessings.
As always, the guidelines are simple. Blog on this week’s prompt in any way you see fit. Once you’ve posted to wherever you normally blog, drop the URL to your post into the comment section below.
REMINDER: use the URL to your entry for this week’s specific topic post, NOT to your blog’s home page!
If you haven’t already done so, you are welcome to join GBE 2 at its main headquarters over on Facebook (We’re comfortably over 300 members and we’re still growing!). Just visit GBE2’s Facebook Page and request to join the group. Everyone is welcome, so tell your friends! :O)
Oh, and people always ask what GBE stands for. It’s Group Blogging Experience. The original GBE was started over at MySpace by a fabulous woman named Alicia. She headed up the group for close to two years before deciding that she’d run her course with it, so she stepped away.
About a year and a half ago, Alicia and I, along with a few others who’d been a part of that original group, were talking on Alicia’s Facebook wall about how wonderful that experience had been and before I could stop myself, I announced that I was going to start a blogging group in the same fashion as the GBE. With Alicia’s blessing, I swiped the name, added the 2, and the rest is history.
For those of you who use Twitter, the hashtag for the group's posts is #GBE2, and we can increase readership if we all tweet early and tweet often. ;O)
That’s it! Easy-breezy-lemon-squeezy!
You have until Saturday (12-22-12) to post your blog and leave your link…
Again, this week, our prompt is: --------
Ready. Set. Blog!
You wouldn’t like it if someone stole your words, so please don’t steal the work of photographers and graphic artists to provide images for your blog.
