Oh that today they might fall….
Don’t you enjoy when you can be a blessing to others? Would you like the opportunity to be a real encouragement to bloggers in the blogosphere who could use it?
Well, have we got a show for you….
Introducing the Shower of Encouragement.
What is the Shower of Encouragement?
Basically, it will be a group of bloggers who decide they want to join a team. A shower team as my friend Blest has so cleverly put it. (She is also my partner in crime in this venture!) Members will shower bloggers with a plethora of encouraging comments that may be accompainied with scripture and a promise to pray for the person.
Who can be a member of the shower team?
Okay, I’m a member, what now?
As a member of this Shower Team, your mission would be to locate bloggers who are in need of encouragement. E-mail me or e-mail blest with the blog name and a brief reason for why they were chosen.
We will then send out a Shower Alert and the address of the blogger. You will need to visit that blog within 24 hours of recieving your alert and shower the person with encouraging comments!
Don’t forget to pray for the person!
How do we choose a blogger to shower?
What we are looking for are bloggers who are going through a hard time. There are no specifics….but we do want this to be meaningful. If anyone seems especially discouraged, is going through difficult circumstances, has been ill, lost a loved one….this all qualifies. Of course, other things can qualify as well.
Blest mentioned in her post that if the person is already recieving a huge amount of encouraging comments we might need to focus on someone else that doesn’t have that support already.
Any family-friendly blog can be a recipient of this shower. They do not have to be a Christian. We believe this would be a wonderful way to demonstrate God’s love. We do ask that you only submit blogs that are family friendly. Keep em PG please!
Psssttt….lady bloggers out there….don’t forget to recommend blogs of men who might need encouragement!
Use your better judgement. Then e-mail Blest or myself with the blog in question. We will review them all and send out alerts to the shower team!
Okay, I don’t really want to join the team but I have a blogging buddy in need of encouragement? What do I do?
Why, glad you asked. You certainly should e-mail Blest or myself. Anyone can recommend a blog for a shower!
We will also send the recipent of the Shower this graphic to place on his/her sidebar.
For the same information in slightly different wording, here’s what Blest is saying about the Shower of Encouragement.
And e-mail me. Join our showering forces!!
