Pay It Forward Or Blog It Forward

A few days before Christmas I was stumbling around the blogosphere and happened on a blog called Binary Blonde and an article she had written Pay It Forward. I was inspired by the article and commented about it not expecting to be in the "3." I thought it was a great idea and originally was going to post about it at Christmas. I then decided to wait until New Year's Day and start the year off right by spreading some goodwill. Well as it turns out I was in the 3 and have been the recipient of Binary Blonde's Pay It Forward kindness, and so I want to say a heartfelt thanks to her for the article she wrote and for whatever I may be receiving in the coming days. Here is how this concept works.

The first three (3) lucky people to comment on this post will receive a gift from me in the mail. The only thing you have to do in return is post the same concept on your blog and send three (3) people (best if they're[sic] strangers) a gift from you. As far as I know, there aren’t any rules as to when you write your post and how much you spend on the gift. Some people are sending homemade items, and some are purchasing theirs. It doesn’t really matter what you send. Though, as a rule of thumb, I would send something you might like to receive yourself.

The only thing I would add is that you in your post you include a link back to the blog you got the idea from as a further token of goodwill. As she did, I promise to those 3 people that comment that I will research your blog and choose something that I feel would be appropriate for you. I won't be doing anything homemade, I'm not crafty in any way, so I will be choosing something from either an off or online store.

One last thing, If I know you in real life, you aren’t eligible for a gift if you comment. Though I think this is a great concept and think you should post about it anyway.

So who is in?

Well I sincerely wish you all a Blessed, Prosperous, and Happy New Year!

Yours Truly,


Because You Need To Know What I Think
