Intro post where you'll find links to the whole series.
We all need a little encouragement from time to time. No matter what size our blog is or how popular or unpopular we feel, us bloggers get those insecure feelings at some point. That's part of the reason I'm here with this series - to encourage you and to encourage myself at the same time!
One thing that encourages me is encouraging others. I like that we've been able to do that throughout this series! When you take the time to encourage, it's amazing how that can in turn be an encouragement to yourself! Let's spread the blessing of encouragement through the blogosphere!
I have an encouragement challenge for you today. I thought it might be a good time to do this before we get too far into the busy Christmas season (I know that we're really already into it, but please pretend for my sake that Christmas is still weeks away - LOL). :)
I know that I've encouraged you before to leave comments on blogs, but this challenge is a little different. I would like you to write some Blogger love letters! Sometime in the next few days, choose 2-3 of your favorite bloggers or bloggers you want to encourage and write them an e-mail (not just a comment on a post - unless you have no other way to contact them). You can usually find their contact info on blogs or on profiles. Send an e-mail telling each blogger why they mean so much to you, how they have inspired or encouraged you, and tell them to keep up the good work!
Feel free to send these "love letters" to any bloggers, even the "big" ones. All bloggers love to hear that they are making a difference. Please do not expect a response when you do this!! Some people may be too busy to respond and some may be surprised and unsure how to respond. Don't be disappointed if you hear nothing back - that's not why we're doing this. Assume that your letters are read and greatly appreciated!
If you have a chance, I'd love for you to leave a comment and tell me if you were able to send any "love letters" and how you felt after you did. Do you like this idea? Have you ever received an e-mail or a note from a reader or a friend regarding your blog?
I hope you all know that I appreciate you! I'm glad that you have followed along on my little encouragement journey (which is almost done)! Keep up with the blogging - your words are a blessing to someone, though you may not realize it today!
Have a blessed day friends!
