What change, big or small, would you like your blog to make in the world?
Funny how phrases make their way into our collective consciousnesses! We used “Be the change” in a fund-raising campaign for wells in Africa about two years ago, so I guess it’s working!
I would like people to see what’s possible for an artist working in soft pastel to create and think about all the hard work, living, and reflection that goes into art-making.
I would like to see my Blog inspire, motivate, entertain and show other Bloggers that one person can truly make a difference in the vast world that we inhabit…
For every person to hear about what changed my life.
I would like my blog to bring people together, no matter what their beliefs or background. We are all part of one race, the human race…lplk.wordpress.com
@ Edgeledge I like that idea too. Everyone place nice!
Thank you @Shatashari, nice to meet you
Although my blog offers ideas on thrifty, creative and eco-friendly ways to raise children I’ve noticed it’s nearly impossible to get people to change habits or views, unless they are in some way already up for it. So my wish is that people in that happy state stumble across http://homemadekids.wordpress.com. Nicola
I would like my blog to help me be a better part of the world, to find an outlet and appreciation for the stories and feelings in my head.
I would like our blog to inspire and encourage others to know that anyone of us can make a difference and be the change.
I agree with you. It is our actions, not words, that ultimately bring about this difference and change.
http://mrshpresents.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/daily-prompt-be-the-change/ First entry!
My blog is an extension of me. If, through one of my posts, photographs or quotes, I can touch just one person and help them awaken on their journey of life, I have done what I set out to do. Live like a tree. Take root and reach for the sky!
I would like my blog of abuse as a child , as a survivor of an attack from being stabbed 21 times.Then building a successful career to inspire others to not give in to horrible circumstances. To rise above all adversity with love in your hearts.
I would like to play a small part in alleviating someone’s mind numbing fear of whatever disease or condition they have with sound advice sprinkled with humor. For only then will they be ready to move forward and tackle it in a positive way.
What a great question, and the allusion to Ghandhi just makes it better. Clearly, I’d like my blog to interest people, etc., but making an actual change in the world seems a bit above my pay grade.
I was going to say “absolutely none!” After giving it some thought, blogs are mainly to serve the blogger’s ego in some way. This doesn’t mean that it is a bad thing. I blog out of boredom and a desire to share some things. I enjoy that others like (or not) what I write. In my case, I have enjoyed the weekly challenges the most since I began doing those. It takes a little thought to find the right photo for a challenge or the right words for a story. It is all about sharing. And, it can be done anonymously. My sharing has limits.
I’d like to spread a little good cheer, a little interest in the quirkiness of the universe we live in, a chance to look at things that might not be noticed. I don’t have grand ambitions, but I do think that happiness can reseed itself like dandelions and brighten the world with little splashes of color.
I would like people to realise vegetarians do not eat meat, chicken, fish or shellfish.
I would like people to understand that feminism is not about deriding men or having hairy legs. It is about respecting women as much as men. And also about women being free to live their life without fear.
I would like people not to abuse animals. Raping a donkey? Dear me. Who on earth carries out such abusive behaviour?
I would like people to stop killing each other, especially in the name of spurious wars (WMDs come to mind).
I would like people to regard and look after old and homeless people, and not consider them a drain on society.
I write about all of these on my blogs, but I haven’t a clue whether it makes any difference. I wish it did.
I love your comment….how many times have I been offered fish after announcing am a vegetarian?? My husband now just says “We don’t eat anything with eyes” and aside from the few smart asses that point out potatoes have eyes I think it makes our point. I like all your comments and I applaud you for saying them so eloquently.
Thank you. I think that’s all I need to say.
Gonna throw up now . . .
I would like my blog to inspire people to travel and explore the world through photographs captured during my adventures.
I would like my blog to encourage people to follow their dreams. Nothing is impossible if you work hard for it.
Just get people to think — think outside their little boxes. And maybe get a laugh or two.
Thank you Michelle. This is another one that struck a chord in me, albeit a much deeper chord than the tapioca chord. I will be all over this as soon as I’m able.
To acknowledge the reality of life, yet be hopeful, positive and inspire people along the journey. “Life is truly beautiful only if one feels and looks at it such a way even in worst times.”
I would like to encourage people to not compromise their values or beliefs.
Forget about changing the world….just me…first, I love this life thing!
To have a moment of peace and solace that reminds them that peace and solace are an always available choice within them.
Encourage women who are done with child rearing to take steps toward living their longings — to do the things they have put on the back burners of their lives for too long!
Perhaps my blog will give others a unique view of some of the things we all share. It may be that my twist on the world is not as different as I think, but if it brings about some introspective thought then it has made some impact on our lives.
I would hope that my blog helps others realize that they are not alone. I write about my past, present, and hopes for the future. I often share my fumbles and try to laugh at myself. I would like to think that someone would read my blog and think that they are not the only one who struggles with both the complex and (sometimes) the mundane.
Oh, the eternal question…why write? In South Africa we remain a polarized society, despite all the rainbow analogies. Rolbos ( http://rolbos.wordpress.com/ ) has at its very core, the desire to stop pretence and posturing – and to start living together in harmony. That’s why so many issues are dealt with: in the hope that humour and a good-natured nudge will get us on our way…
I’d be happy if my blog – which is not more than a personal diary with photos and special moments, thoughts and feelings of my ordinary everyday life – can make people smile…
If you stumble across my blog, enjoy the photos and perhaps even recognize some of your own feelings and thoughts in my words -
If I can sometimes make you feel the love of nature that I feel ..
if you even feel a little “understood” in some respect, and simply enjoy having been here for a few minutes – then my blog has served its humble purpose and made the positive change for one moment.
The rest of my entry is in German (and photos )
Thank you for the inspirations here
Be who you are!
Here’s mine. Take it for what it’s worth. Maybe a lot, maybe a little. Thanks again Michelle!
I would like people to write down their goals and live them. Make your life better everyday by doing something that is moving forward and reaching a goal. The smallest change I could inspire is to stop people from using the make up testers on the counters on their face. Come on people be that change.
i would like for my blog to inspire women.. that are struggling to push through. to motivate, to see that they are not alone… single mom’s have it tough and it’s not often that the struggles are discussed… i do it for me… i do it for them. i wish i knew a few women experiencing some of my same challenges.
Great question! I aspire for my blog to feed people. Feed them with positive messages and entry points to improve themselves, as well as our greatest community.
i want my blog 2 inspire & help others
Trastornos De Ansiedad (Anxiety)
I like many other bloggers would like to inspire and motivate others to see and get a feel for the things we often take for granted which are ; nature’ s beauty and the will and power to leave at least a small track of our foot steps behind .I would like to especially motivate and inspire others to breathe life in a harmonious place where all of us incorporate our thoughts , feelings art and inspirational stories to share with the rest of the world at large
I would like my blog to allow others the opportunity to look beneath the surface of their lives,
Thanks a lot wordpress and all bloggers, because you make my world more rich ♥
I would like my blog to reveal information that is sometimes mis-interpret the wrong way. This information if not taken the right way could “ruin” a person’s life instead of helping the person. I hope my blog helps someone not to make the same mistakes that I have made in life, and having the correct understanding can make our lives so much better. I want to be a change, however, I want my blog to help make changes to certain issues that will cause us to live the change for the better. I want my blog to help get rid of “ugly bully issues” that hinder our lives.
I would like to inspire and be inspired!
I want to change how people think about walking and where they walk. My soon to be 3-year old blog is all about walking.
This is an interesting prompt because one of my favourite quotes is “You must be the change you wish to see in the world (Mahatma Ghandi)”. I truly believe that we all need to try and make positive changes in our lives so we can influence others in a positive way. On November 10th, I wrote a post called, “YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE”, which touches on the subject of change. I hope that my blog will help influence people to make some positive changes in their own lives so they can be a positive role model and a good example to their families, friends, co-workers and in their communities.
Interestingly, the same quote is the sign off for my email to remind myself to implement the changes that I want to see.
This was a challenge. Thanks for prompt.
I hope to inspire others to consume less, think more, see beauty in the most simplest of things, stop being afraid of change. Encourage re-using, recycling and start thinking second hand. Try to cook or bake – it’s actually fun. Eat well, on less. Decorate with ‘junk’. See beyond what advertisers want you to believe and most importantly, to remind others you don’t need as much as you think – money isn’t everything. Sure it helps, though a lot of people could live on less, if they consumed less, wanted less… We have more stuff and less time, more money yet less peace, we work more and play less with our children…life is short, make it lovely – for everyone – by being true to yourself and respecting the planet and its’ finite sources; it’s the only one we have. Less truly is more.
It’s the small changes that make the biggest difference http://sasieology.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/daily-prompt-be-the-change/
I would like for my blog to help people fall asleep earlier.
Reblogged this on Breaking the chains and commented:
Be the change in your actions, make your page merely a reflect of them
I am so looking forward to reading what others have written on this. I decided the best thing I could do was to write and submit my post before I read others to make sure it was my words and my heart that were speaking.
This was a great idea and I thank you for getting me to think about it
Even if a handful of readers learn to differentiate good art from bad via establishing what’s good art for them, I’d be satisfied. If a handful more will learn something that will help them progress as artists, I’d be thrilled.
Through sharing my favorite recipes and food related stories, I hope to change people’s view on food: Going beyond the ordinary is not difficult and can be fun!
‘If I ruled the world, every day would be the first day of spring.’
The title of my blog is light words I hope if I brighten on persons day I have made a change in the world. Here’s today’s http://piecesofstarlight.wordpress.com/2012/11/12/cloud-clearing-monday-smooth-sailing-in-a-lavender-sunset/
Great prompt. Here’s my response http://bravesmartbold.com/2012/11/12/wild-women-and-mad-men-bite-the-change/
I hope you all enjoy it more than I did on the day I forgot my fangs.
I would like mine to inspire, how love completes me x
I saw this prompt after I posted my blog today, which coincidentally was about change: http://wp.me/p2IDOj-fK. Change can only happen within, so I can only hope that my blog will help people along the way when they decide to change their lifestyle to being healthier, as well as having a positive attitude about life.
Am loving the dog in your avatar, what a lovely pic.
Thank you! That’s Dali, named after the artist. Her floppy ears are the best – they have a personality of their own
Well a big change is highly needed in these times, I just pray what we aked for is better than what we got before.
I want my blog to be the insrument of change in our country and be the voice of the youth.
I’m a day behind with this one, but never mind. Here it is…
Sorry. wrong link. Try this one:
I hope my blog will help increase awareness with respect to chewing gum pollution. Gum pollution has become a worldwide problem that costs millions of dollars, wastes millions of gallons of water and can kill small animals. I would like to encourage everyone to be responsible for their gum litter and make littering “our responsibility”.
To help every reader to see past the self so as to see the self.
Hey everyone. Here is my blog post on this subject. Enjoy
I blog because I like to sharing the experience of being a woman. That woman being one who is somewhere between young and old, and can’t legitimately play with Barbie anymore. If there’s a change I’d like to see in the world, it’s that women are fully armed with the information needed to make informed decisions about the buffet of anti-aging options at our feet. I would like vanity not to be a dirty word, yet restore dignity to the wrinkle. To me, the beauty rhetoric is split beween the two extremes of feminism and fashion; I’d like to think there’s perspective somewhere in the middle.
Most importantly, all this needs to be wrapped up in fun. Life’s too short for us to take nail art and Botox that seriously.
We are on the spot now!
I would like my blog to inspire people to take action and really get serious about orphans — whether it be here or abroad, in time, money, advocating, educating, adopting… Each of us have unique talents and abilities to share. Kids deserve to have families who love them. And I hope through my blog I can inspire others to work in orphan care.
Reblogged this on sarawritestoomuch and commented:
Everyone has a story to tell. This is mine.
My dream is to get someone to think–at the very least to smile.
I just want to change me first
I hope my blog helps and inspires people who have battled with, or who are still struggling with, alcohol. After giving up drinking nearly two years ago, I have changed beyond recognition, and all for the better! I would love my blog to give people the inspiration they are looking for to get off the booze once and for all.
I have five blogs, but the most important is Full of life, which is about how to banish loneliness. If I can start people on the road to overcoming their chronic or existential loneliness, I reckon that’s not a bad thing.
I believe in love and laughter,if the whole world would come to know that through my blog-www.dantesboo.wordpress.com,I could die anytime knopwing I have accomplished a lot.
I hope my doodles on the blog can put a smile on someone’s face. The world can do with more positivity and laughter.
I have several websites, but for my newest, I want to show the world or express what societal/family failure can create in a person’s ability to succeed in life.
I want to inspire others to teach abroad. If teaching isn’t their thing, then I want to at least be the inspiration they need to pack their backpack and purchase a ticket – whatever the reason may be!
I want to entertain and inspire people with my stories, and grow as a storyteller. WordPress is helping me flex my writing muscles.
I would like people in America to understand what its like being unemployed in america and to come to the realization that its a crisis. Unity is a must to get this country back on its feet again.
Here is my attempt at today’s prompt http://omaliko.wordpress.com/2012/11/13/literary-change-for-africans/
I would like my blog to inspire people of vast amounts of wealth to give up the fear of not maintaining control and help reshape our existence by setting the ultimate example of change for the better. Throughout history, as far as I know, greedy, fearful people have been guiding the hand of too many of the controlling forces in our daily lives.
Does it really make sense that it has become accepted to make controlled substances illegal, yet our government makes it ok to manufacture meth-amphetamines and prescribe it to children for their “ADD” or “ADHD”?
Is it really ok to spend billions of dollars a year to kill people in other countries to set an example? (Of what, That My government’s got a bigger penis?! seriously people!! Wake up!)
People will always react and fight to protect their dignity.. My subtle recommendation is to stop giving them a reason to fight. Stop trying to make life harder than it has to be. Be a grown-up, apologize profusely pay the piper with an alternative to killing and start showing people how to co-exist..
Why were we allowed to screw over the economy for a handful of people to capitalize on the pointed real estate meltdown..
I could go on but I will stop there.. I just want to see a little change for the better. It probably doesn’t help that I’ve had to deal with the blunt force of being kicked to the bottom of the financial totem pole when I am fighting to get to the top, only so that I can make a change in the daily lives of people for the better. With absolutely no ulterior motive.
The reason I write my blog is to share insight and beauty I encounter as I live my life. I hope to receive comments from readers who may want to share something with me.
I would like my blog to improve someone’s mood–if they were in a foul one and happened upon my blog, I would love my words to make someone happy.
here is what I would like to change right now… how we react …http://27roots.com/2012/11/12/avoidance/
I hope my WordPress blog will help my followers to become better informed about important matters of local and global importance.
ATRIDIM NEWS JOURNAL: http://atridim.wordpress.com/
Hoping families will take away some information in small doses that will entertain and educate and improve the health of their children.
If my blog can entertain and/or help others who are undertaking similar journeys, then that’s enough for me.
I hope that in a small way, my blog will encourage others to challenge limiting beliefs and approach life in an open and flexible way.
This is actually for the Daily Prompt: This is Your Song. For some reason the comments were closed on that daily prompt so I could not share my link but I REALLY wanted to share this post so I will share it here and look for when they open the comments up for the song daily prompt (whats up with that by the way??)
Here is my contribution
let me know what you think if anyone gets to read it
What a thought provoking question. Here is what I came up with.
First, this is a great prompt! Thank you.
Second, my blog began as a place for me to place book reviews-one of my joys…reading and growing from the experience. I have since then made it into a place to help others grow and know that for change, it takes only one positive person/place/thought/action, to make a difference.
Make them keep thinking of things never never thought they would think of.
I loved this challenge! Here is mine!
I want my blogsite (still under construction) to convince, inspire, and motivate a significant portion of a 25 million-strong group of American men and women to make a (free) personal sacrifice, their anonymity, to end the circular cultural debate about abortion and to use their collective political power to spur quantum advancements in contraception so that by the end of the 21st century, virtually every pregnancy will be intended and human suffering will be dramatically reduced.
In short, I want to offer up new tools to 25 million people that they can heroically use to change the world in their lifetime.
I want my blogsite to be a “shout out” that causes an avalanche.
I want my child to live in a more humane world.
I hope my blog can show you my life, Like I want to see your life. Maybe we can change a little bit
I want my blog to help people who are too busy in their life..wait and explore the true meaning and zing of life. I want people to appreciate the gift of life and live it to the lees..!
