Introducing The Bloghop of Joy


That's right, I am teaming up with the super awesome Kyra Lennon to create The Bloghop of Joy! Here are the details!

The idea for this hop came about while Kyra was watching a Russell Howard DVD. Towards the end, he tells the audience about his "List of Joy." These are the small, sometimes slightly unusual things that always cheer him up - so now we want to know, what is on your list of joy? 

In these cold, winter months, everything can seem kind of ... bleak. However, every now and again, something small will happen that makes us smile again. It could be a random memory, something you see on TV, overhearing something that makes you laugh out loud  - just that one thing that makes the clouds part, and the sunshine appear again. We're not talking life-changing moments, just the little things that inexplicably make us smile.

All you have to do to be a part of this happy hop is sign up on the Linky List, and on March 1st, post your list of joy - with a minimum of five things that put a spring back in your step!

Because both Kyra and myself have given away a bunch of things recently, there won't be any prizes for participation - but we think hearing what makes everyone else happy is a pretty decent prize!

If you want some examples of the "little things" and to see the inspiration for the hop, here's the video. (If you're not keen on swearing, skip to 1 minute 41, and that's where the list starts.) 




We hope you'll join us to spread some happiness across the blogosphere! Also, if you wouldn't mind sharing the bloghop banner in your sidebars, that would be awesome! We've even generated the HTML and put it in a handy-dandy box to help you out. Just copy and paste this into your side bar:

  6. Oooh, sounds fun! I'd love to sign up, but I've been so friggin' forgetful lately with this sort of thing. I'll need a reminder...don't think a sticky-note to the forehead will do. Too many showers between now and then. Ah heck, I'll sign up anyways. I'll make a note on my desk. :)
