Contrary to a certain (former) McCain staffer, the U.S.A is not a nation of whiners. The economy is struggling, and we (the average citizens) are struggling. And those who are in tougher than average shape financially? They’re suffering. Truly suffering.
Kristin at Motherhood Uncensored has a small but significant suggestion. She knows that most of us can do very little about the economic state of the union at the moment, but she recognizes that sometimes a little goes a long way. Here’s her suggestion:
“…Blog the Recession Month:
The premise is simple. If you read blogs, then for the month of August, make the “pledge” to click through from your feed reader. No obligation to leave a hilarious comment or send a long stalkerish email (although both, within reason, are always lovely). Just click through to the blog (not on ads unless you are so led) and if you’re feeling generous, click around to their older posts.
Just those extra page views can make a big difference for bloggers who could really use the help….”
If you are a blogger and you want to jump on the Blog the Recession Bandwagon, go to Kristin’s blog, grab a button, and then send her an email with the permalink for your post. She assures us that she’s a good driver, and the bandwagon will have a good time. I want to know: will she stop for coffee?
Never mind. I’ll bring my own! Now I just need to go look for my travel mug…
