Happy International Blog Day!!

Yes, that's right! We Bloggers actually have a day set aside to celebrate using our creative and communicative talents! Have you ever really researched the origin of the BLOG? In my quest to understand the popular social tool, my search brought up Wikipedia's link. I read that Blog day is "on the books", or "calendar" August 31st, for all of us to celebrate! This day may have taken many of you by surprise. It seems to have been started up around 6 years ago, was being announced by various links, and, then, apparently the torch was passed to the rest of us to continue to make our day special! Immediately I posted it as a gadget on my blog. And, The Blogstress Network, myself, and many other blogs that I googled, are bringing new life to Blog day by the passionate promoting to share the joy! I believe we can revive and give continued life to International Blog Day. It's such a great focus for bloggers. Even though many of us mention, promote, and link to other blogs on a regular basis, the day can be a day of bringing a tremendous surge in the fun and creativity of promoting! Let's CONNECT, start promoting your six, or more, chosen blogs on International Blog Day, August 31st. And, then share another creative way to commemorate! Your idea could end up taking off world-wide. Happy International Blog Day!

I have soooooo many that I want to promote! These are a portion of all that I follow! I have added and added to my blogroll till it's bursting at the seems! But, what the heck, I love them all!
Happy International Blog Day! Share the joy! xo
