after experiencing some not-so-nice behavior in the blogging community, I decided to take a stand.  I have always been the kind of person to take a negative situation, and try to turn it into a learning opportunity.  It is either the product of being a social worker, or the reason I became one--whichever came first, I don't know.

I also provide training workshops on personal and organizational accountability.  sounds boring I know, but it's actually very helpful in life.  it's about recognizing and taking responsibility in what you can and cannot change.  If you see or are experiencing something you do not agree with, and you do not do what is in your power to change it--then you are also part of the problem.

I was recently involved (I don't like the word "victim") in a situation that was hurtful.  I got angry about it, I lost interest in blogging, I blamed.  but then I thought, "what can I do to change this?"  I can speak from my heart, and I can make an effort to be mindful of not doing the same to others.  and, even better I can hope that others will join in and do the same.

and so the "kind-hearted blogger" campaign was born.


  • create, inspire, and admire rather than compete with fellow bloggers
  • be understanding of each other-- in the blogging community, as well as in the world
  • stay away from internet/blogging bullying
  • speak my opinion freely, while still being mindful of other's feelings-- be tactful.
  • make an effort--no matter how big or small the gesture, to spread kindness or joy to others
  • acknowledge that I will make mistakes, (I am only human) but remember to learn from them
  • know that at times I will post about the negative stuff in life, and maybe even some complaining (I am only human) but I will always follow up with something happy/positive too.
  • believe that this world is a good place, filled with good people.

    FEEL FREE TO JOIN IN (let me know if you do so I can link you)

    also, make sure to take a look at my blog pal lindsay's wonderful post on kindness. it's beautiful, and perfect, and I feel so honored to have contributed a small part to it.

    Hello there Jo-Annie!

    I was reading Lindsays blog, and I noticed this great little pledge button she had on her sidebar. Always being one for random acts of kindness and fairness, equality and all around nice behavior in the blog world, I was really happy to click.

    I was even happier when the button brought me to you and your little blog. Not only will I be making the pledge, following you and adding the button to my blog, but I will be reading your words every time you post them, happily and enthusiastically because you are what I think blogging is all about. Who are we if we can't be honest about how a situation makes us feel and we don't do something to fix it! This is insanely inspirational and I totally commend you for being so nice and clever and making it happen.

    My blog is and I hope to hear from you soon, love!

    Thank you for touching my heart on a day where, for the fourth time in a row, I am sick on the couch watching Children's television. I love you for it, I really do.

    Much Love,
    Norah xx

    p.s. Em Jay is simply the cutest little girl I have ever seen. :D

    jo_annie said...

    Thanks you guys! you're just wonderful! I've added you to the blog post.

    And Teddi... haha! I have much too often felt that way! love how descriptive you are--I'm trying to picture you throwing like a toddler!

    Carrie Lynn said...

    I took this pledge because I think it's beautiful! The button is on me blog.
    And I'm not a social worker yet, but in school to be one, and I think that the whole "why can't we all just be kind to each other" attitude really does come with the territory ;)

    Thanks for this!

    Diana said...

    I experienced this and sad to say I've been on both ends. There needs to be more of this! Thank you and i'm sorry something so great had to be born out of something so harsh. xo

    I wanted to let you know that when I tried to put your link about kinder heart to my blog, I was told that the link was broken so I couldn't do so. I do agree with you on this. I do my best to not be upsetting to others & encourage them when I can. So I am following your blog. Thanks for letting me know that I'm not alone in thinking this way.

    Sorry I typed too fast and didn't proof read my first comment so I will try and write more carefully this time.
    I love the kindness badge and have placed it on my blog. I have never understood why someone would choose to be negative and hurtful with another person- especially when that person is putting themselves out there by writing the blogpost. I think your badge is a wonderful and a thoughtful idea. I hope many others will take up this caring pledge.
    Warmest regards,

    this mum' s world said...

    I've taken the pledge!

    Peggy said...

    What a good idea - I took the pledge. So sorry to hear that you've had some bad experiences - hopefully this will help get the word out, and encourage those who think it's okay to share their thoughts no matter how hurtful to stop and think before writing. So nice to see hurt turned into something positive.

    This is such a good idea! I'm def. going to be putting this button on my blog :) I agree wholeheartedly with what you are saying. I'm so tired of people going out of their way just to be rude to strangers. I wish people like that could get a hobby and do something constructive with their time. They would be much happier people and have less time to be mean :)

    This is wonderful. I am apalled at all the recent online bullying and it really disappoints me that the blogging community has become a sort of competitive place, filled with cruel and disrespectful comments both in blogging and on YouTube. But it is a community, and it should remain a positive community where we can all learn from on another. I take this pledge with you and I commend you for being a positive role model in the blogging community. Please feel free to link to my blog as I have now posted this badge to continue to spread the good word. =)



    Shaylee Anne said...

    What an amazing thing you are doing for the blogging community! (and for people in general) I really admire this and would be honoured to be part of it! I will add the link to my page and hope many others continue to do so! Thanks again!
