The brilliant mom behind Motherhood Uncensored suggested this concept last week, and not only was it a great idea, but also came with a cute button.
Anyway, basically what she said was that hey, July? It was kind of crappy for everyone. Between gas being so outrageously expensive that you have to really give thought to whether you want to go anywhere and just unfortunate things popping up left and right, well it's time that we all had something good happen.
So here's the idea. We're going to make August better by supporting each other. Read new blogs, read more blogs, read more than one page of a blog. Even leave a comment. I know I'm not the only person who gets giddy when they see that a blog they're particularly proud of has 10+ comments. Or that on a day I really need support, I clearly have it from all of you. So for the month of August, I am going to blog the recession. I'm going to read more, I'm going to comment more, I'm going to help each of you, if only by increasing your stats one little click at a time. It's not about inflating stats, it's about supporting a person through their blog.
I am already finding August to be better than July, which is a great miracle. No, my head has not stopped hurting (believe me, the presses would've been stopped and the world might possibly have stopped spinning on its axis if that was the case) but when my car wouldn't start yesterday and (I um, might have cursed karma for balancing out my reasonably decent GRE experience), it did magically start on its own when AAA came out. Yes, it was obnoxious, but it didn't cost me another 200 dollars as with the battery and tire experiences of this summer thus far. (Wait, did I just guarantee that my car wasn't going to start when I tried to go to work today? Crap.)
So now go out and have a better August and give some thought to Blogging the Recession. Never underestimate the power of supporting another person.
