Meet & Greet…Hypervigilant Style


“Ooooooh, you were right. I DO like her!”                                                                                “Dude. I said you could MEET her. Hands off.”

**We’re up to $35; see below!

We’ve all seen (and occasionally participated in) a Meet & Greet post. You know, “drop your link in the comments and maybe someone will click.”

Instead of posting a hit-or-miss link, let’s change it up. Your mission, should you choose to accept it: 

1. Describe your blog in nine words or less.

2. Paste a link to a post you’re proud of writing. Bonus points for adoption, mental health or parenting themes*, but it can be anything.

*With your link, please note the post theme, e.g., “Adoption,” “Mental Health,” “Parenting,” “My Happy Place,” “Honey Badgers are Misunderstood,” etc.

3. Reblog this to increase the number of participants. For every comment below, I’ll donate a dollar* to Compassion International, a fabulous organization committed to child development and rescuing kids from poverty.

*If the comment number rises beyond my ability to personally donate, I commit to raising the money. 

4. Click at least two links and read the posts.

Have fun!  And ignore the lemur. Feel free to hug.

    HI! This is a great idea! This post deals with our experience in dealing with anorexia with our precious teen. Please feel to ask any questions or just to share your thoughts. I want to be as much help as I can to others who may have or may be dealing with this scary journey. You are NOT alone, I care!
    My blog is about anything and everything. You will laugh and cry and that is more than 9 words, oops 🙂

    This one is about the innocence of toddlerhood and the joy it brings older folks.

    My blog is a mash-up of reading/writing/kids/the arts.

    Good for you for being involved in adoption. It’s a beautiful thing.
