DAY 44 The Happy Blogger Club is Born!

Day 44 of ReStart,  Tuesday Sept 22, 09

Good Morning Journal,

Guess what?! There is a new club in the Blogosphereinterwebs...it is called the 

HAPPY BLOGGER CLUB!


I don't claim to be always be "happy"...I am human. But my goal is to create a place where I can come to read that IS happy and encouraging, upbeat, hopeful and positive. So when I am done reading, I go away enriched, not depleted. Ready to WIN, not  go hide under my bed and pout. Honesty, yes of course. But it will not help me reach my goals to STAY unhappy, to hold on to negativity. I need to get it out, get it dealt with, healed, let it go, and get ON with this journey...because I plan to enjoy the journey as I go, as much as is humanly possible!

Click HERE for the "rest of the story"...of what inspired this club to come into being.

If anyone wanders in out of the cold and reads this journal, and would like to join the HAPPY BLOGGER CLUB, I would be DELIGHTED to have you join me!!!!

I must admit that I love color (gee, you can't tell by my blog). And last night I stayed up til...well, too late, playing at making the banner design for the club (have I mentioned I am an artist?). It really was so much fun! I stole one of MyGuy's photos and had a blast dinking around with it.

If you would like a banner for your blog, just click on the color you like and save the image to your computer, just like any other pic from the web...then use it on your blog wherever you like. If you don't find the color you need, shoot me an email (my addy is on my Blogger profile page) and I'll see what I can do. :-) 


Just add it to your sidebar as a Gadget, and if you like, link it back to this page so others can get one, too. Oh, and I would LOVE to know if you joined the Happy Blogger Club!

Here are the ones all ready to go...spread the word...let's infect the whole blogosphere with a healthy dose of "happy"!!

PS: Please do not ask me who the blogger was that inspired this whole train of thought...I will never tell. It is possible I totally misunderstood him...and, I actually respect his accomplishments. So I would never want to cause hurt to him by revealing his name. Thank you for understanding.

From Dr Phil's book: "The past is over. The future hasn't happened yet. The only time is now."

My verse for today: "A merry heart does good like a medicine."

My quote for today: " When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us."--Helen Keller

Enjoy the Journey,

Loretta

Aww, that is so sweet. Happy Blogger Club sounds great, I know sometimes it is hard not to be negative when you are not happy with yourself.

In regards to your comment, I am so "happy" to find somebody who understands the GERD thing. I hope that your symptoms go away soon. With taking the 2 Prilosec a day do you still get symtoms?

Have a great day!

Rettakat said...

Hi {All}, no, I have no symptoms now. But taking prilosec long term has health repercussions, like nutritional absorption problems, so I am hoping to wean off of them in a few months.

I am glad you like the club. If you would like me to send you a banner, just email me and let me know where to send it, and which color you like (don't put your email addy here, or the spammers will find it!). It would be fun to see them pop up all over. :-)

I hope you find relief for your symptoms soon!

Love the club idea!! I'll be e-mailing you. :-D

Karen Elizabeth Brown said...

What a great idea! How fun! I'd like to put one on my site. I'm still not sure how to do it, but I'm sure I'll figure it out. Happy blogging!

Rettakat said...

Hi Karen,
The simplest way is to just copy and paste whichever one you want to your computer, just like any other pic you might find on the web and want to save. Then click Customize>Add a gadget>add a Picture...and it will upload it into your blog sidebar. If you want to display just the banner, leave Title and Caption blank.

Or, let me know which color you like (I put a number next to each one), and I can email it to you, then just follow the above path to adding it.
Have fun!
Loretta

Oh Happy Day

Thanks for your good cheer.

I will definitely be putting one of these on my blog! Should we link it back to your blog?

Rettakat said...

Hi Nancy,
It would be fun if you did link it somehow, so anyone else who was interested could snag one. But there are no rules...do whatever makes you "happy". LOL!

Nancy said...

I put your happy club banner on my new (old but back again) blog....http://authormom2kme.blogspot.com/

Nancy said...

oh...you may need an explanation of the title of my new blog...its actually called My New Amazing Life, but the header picture says something different, LOL
go here for a (silly) explanation: http://authormom2kme.blogspot.com/2009/09/my-new-amazing-life.html
