REAL SIMPLE KICKS OFF THE FIRST-EVER
“BE NICE ON THE INTERNET” WEEK
JANUARY 9-13, 2012
Ms. Madge(rs) was positively delighted when informed that the fine folks from Real Simple are launching a week long celebration of online civility in their Be Nice on the Internet Week campaign from January 9-13. If you'd like to be part of the fun, follow this link to their site. Perhaps these winds of positivity will help sweep the nasty internet trolls right back under the bridges from whence they crawled. Now that's a lovely thought, isn't it?
At the very least, Gentle Reader, we can, each of us, become a beacon for the power of spreading good cheer and showing others that it is possible to express criticism with compassion. We don't have to like everything, but as the old (and still apt adage) says, "If you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all." And, Ms. Madge(rs) would add, "If you feel compelled to say something anyway, be thoughtful, concise and most of all...kind."
On that uplifting note, Ms. Madge(rs) bids you a most delightful snarky comment free day. Huzzah!
