I learned about #WATWB — We Are The World Blogfest — through my blogger friend, Damyanti Biswas’s blog, Daily (w)rite. She is a co-host for the Blogfest that shares real-life stories of compassion and kindness. Stories that need to be shared as much as possible through social media which is so filled with hate and negativity.
So, in a bid to spread hope and positivity, this Blogfest invites people from around the world to share stories of real-life heroes. Stories that are heartwarming and full of hope and love that we so need in today’s world.
I instantly loved the idea!
Each day, when we surf through news channels or scroll down any social media, all we read are stories full of negativity, hatred, and despair. And, the first thought that comes to mind is, “Where are we headed?”
And, at such times, when we stumble upon a snippet of positivity, a story of hope and love between people, we are filled with a sense of relief. A feeling that all’s not lost, yet! That there’s still hope. A light at the end of the tunnel.
I decided to stay on the lookout for any such positive story I came across so I could share it on my blog as well as every other social media I could, and do my bit in restoring hope and faith in humanity.
This Blogfest is held on the last Friday of every month. All you need to do is share a real-life story on your blog in 500 words. A link to a story that shows there’s hope and love, positivity and brotherhood in our world.
This is the badge you put up on your blog and share the link to your post on Twitter, Instagram, Google, Facebook and any other social media you use to spread the word.
Here’s one of the stories I shared. Do read and share. We all know we could use as much positivity as we can!
Metanoia being an Inspirational Blog, too, I felt sharing such true stories was the best thing to do here.
Would you like to join us in spreading some hope and warmth?
My theme for the A to Z Blogging Challenge is all about my blog, Metanoia, and my blogging journey from the time I started, 5 years ago. The lessons I learned, the tips and tricks I picked up from fellow bloggers and the guidelines I could have used back when I began.
You will find all of my A to Z posts here.
