We Are The World Blogfest

This is a reminder that the “We are the World” Blogfest” takes place this Friday, April 24, 2020. April is one of those funny months where the last Friday falls pretty early, so I think the blogfest snuck up on a few of us – I know it snuck up on me.

The “We are the World” Blogfest”is now in its third year. This blogfest’s goal is to spread the message of light, hope and love in today’s world. We are challenging all participants to share the positive side of humanity. Each month, four or five volunteers co-host the sharing of good news stories that are shared by 50-60 participants. Information about WATWB is shared primarily via Twitter and on Facebook. We understand that that leaves some people out of the flow. So, this month, we’re trying to use this blog as a way of reaching people whose primary social media platform is WordPress. We hope you can join us.

If you want to SIGN UP for WE ARE THE WORLD – Click HERE to be part of the Light. That link will take you to a Linky List.

If you simply want to try your hand at sharing some good news, here’s a thumbnail sketch of the very simple rules:

  • Find a good news story that speaks to you, one that you want to share.
  • Write a short blog post (please try to stay under 500 words) that tells the world why that story is important to you.
  • Mention the WATWB and include our badge in your post. You can copy the badge from No Facilities.

That’s it! That’s pretty easy. In addition, if you think you want to participate more often, you can follow this blog. We will announce the WATWB each month, within the week that the last Friday falls. If you are on Facebook, ask to join the WATWB group. And, if you’re on Twitter, follow their hashtag – #WATWB – and use it when you promote your post on Friday. And, if you can’t get your post out on Friday, you can still join us over the weekend.

About Dan Antion

Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek - oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places. I have started this blog to catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.
