I have been nominated by Biff Sock Pow, my blogging friend to participate in a 3-day, “Quote a Day” challenge. I am grateful to Biff for nominating me, as I have enjoyed bantering with him through blogging commentaries for more than a year now. I am inspired and refreshed to see him poke fun at himself over things I do also. And it was his use of a comic strip in his blog that spurred me to experiment.
Here are the rules:
- Thank the person that nominated you.
- Write one quote each day for three consecutive days (3 quotes total)
- Explain why the quote is meaningful for you.
- Nominate three bloggers each day to participate in the challenge.
Quote #2: You can make more friends in two months by becoming interested in other people than you can in two years by trying to get other people interested in you.
As a child I moved around a lot due to my father’s work, then my parent’s separation and divorce. As a result, I was not good at making friends in elementary (primary grades) nor up to my first year in high school (secondary school). My father had given me books by author Dale Carnegie, to help me overcome a lack of confidence and self-centeredness. Perhaps my enjoyment in being an encourager with people I meet and friends I’ve known for years, has, in part, Dale Carnegie, to thank.
Here are my nominees:
You are not required to participate if you don’t want to, but it is actually quite fun.
I chose these people because their blogs are full of real life- joys, sorrows, victories amd memories. These bloggers have inspired me through humor, imagery, or their frankness. Some I’ve been bantering with for a while and some are new acquaintances. Here on the second day, I am inviting those who may not have thousands of subscribers while others have growing legions of fans. ( And others have already posted per this challenge!!)
