So, I had a little bit of an emotional afternoon...This is why...

SOOO.... I DO check to make sure ya'll have truly done all of the entries. AND this time I am SAD to say that four out of the first FIVE picked had NOT done all the steps/entries that they had said they had done :( 

My desire and hope is to HELP these entrepreneurs...NOT just give free stuff away. I want to help. I want to introduce these businesses to a NEW group of people.

I feel like I am spending time and putting my heart into this....and it is very discouraging....
Made me want to cry....
God has called me to this...I know He has. Maybe I need to go about it a different way??

PLEASE, in the future, know that I DO check to see if the entries have been done.

Please support these entrepreneurs and DO the steps required to enter...Thank you :)

Do "GOOD" Week 3 LINK UP!!

New Link up Feature!! Week 3!!!

We have started a new feature asking fellow bloggers to link up a post for which they are proud, that shows how they are “doing good” with their blogs.

Whether its a passion to support handmade and small business; writing about healthy living and important news for moms; or dedicating a blog to a particular health issue like mental illness, blogs across the web are doing SO MUCH good.

We blog because we’re inspired to write and help others.

This blog post can consist of ANYTHING you consider GOOD.

*Sharing your faith
*Saving the environment
*Disaster relief
*Caring for your babies or family.....etc...

Family Fashion and Facts, Motherhood Unadorned and The Maven of Social Media have teamed up to kick off this new link up we’re calling “Do Good Thursday Link up”.

What to do.
* Just link up a post from the last couple of weeks that showcases how you “Do Good” with your blog.

* Follow the three hosts via Google Friend Connect (if you’d be so kind) PLUS... who wouldn't want to follow us?? You should do it...if not...YOU are missing out :) I mean... who wouldn't want to follow these girlies?? ;)

* Leave a comment on this post that you linked up so that we can check out YOUR FAB post :) Then feel free to check out all of the wonderful do-gooder bloggers who link up, and show them some love.

Please note: Only link up “Do Good” blog posts. No giveaway links please.
