While visiting blogs the past two weeks, I've noticed some fellow bloggers posting/talking about positive subjects, encouraging other bloggers, or acknowledging their fellow bloggers' work. That inspired me to write about Karma. I believe that when you do something selflessly, positive energy swathes you. The result: your good deeds are rewarded with more good deeds. :-)
My fellow bloggers also inspired me to pay it forward. For instance, Melissa Gill at Melissa Getting Published, has added a new feature in her blog for 2011: She will feature and highlight each of her followers every Wednesday. She says, "Each and every one of my followers has added something unique and wonderful to my life, and I want to reach out to each of you and share what I love about you and your blogs."
The lovely and versatile Chelsea at Coffee Tale Reviews , awarded me and other fellow bloggers with the "Stylish Blogger Award". She was one of my first followers.
My friend and fellow writer, Kelly Howarth at One Word Pundit, empowers people (especially women) through her inspirational posts.
Old Kitty, a loyal reader at Ten Lives and Second Chances, writes about daily life observations. She's funny, sweet, and quirky (even though she says she's shy), ah yes, she also loves cats.
Sharon Mayhew, my fellow blogger and loyal reader at Random Thoughts, writes about positive experiences like My heart is full, her latest post. I love reading her blog.
These are just a few examples of bloggers who write positive posts and/or acknowledge their friends, readers, and fellow bloggers. I want to do the same by inviting authors, writers, and fellow bloggers who have published or will be publishing their book(s) to talk about their work. I'll feature them in my posts. I would also invite them to write guest posts or share ideas and/or projects like blog hops or book launches in order to promote them/spread the word (even in a small way). It'll be my pleasure and my literary karmic deed. ;-)
Do you believe in Karma? Has anyone done something for you that was inspirational?
