Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Seems to be a lot of posts about this and I didn't understand.
I am a little "slow". Can I blame it on cold meds?
If I got this right, some people who joined the RAOK ring are feeling left out. I'm not a part of the ring so I don't know the exact story. Its too bad that something that was meant to be so beautiful has this little cloud hanging over it. It happens in the Secret Pal ring too. Why?
Maybe I'm a few chocolate chips short of a cookie.
I pointed you all to Norma's blog the other day. Did you go? I thought she had yet another beautiful post and hit the sentiment of RAOK right on the nose. I commented to her that every nice/funny comment I get is like a RAOK. Those that read and don't say anything, I don't feel any worse. I write for enjoyment. I hope you get some sort of entertainment value from reading and there is no need to comment if you aren't compelled. You're all special to me either way.
As I've been strolling around blogs today I keep seeing other posts and some are showing a less than postive side to the RAOK thing. I feel bad for those that are left out. It may be that popular bloggers get more attention, at least that was someones idea and maybe they are right. It may just be that getting a little gift for someone that is well known is easier to pick out than it is for someone that you know nothing about. For me I like to get people stuff, but I want to try and get them something they will like and use. I'm sure that no one is being left out on purpose.
I feel bad for those that are feeling left out of the RAOK ring and those that aren't hearing from their Secret Pals. It sucks that you are feeling ignored, its not fair. For all of you, I'm sending out a big internet hug and I hope you all are on the receiving end of some kindness soon.
If you know someone that is feeling left out, go give them a nice blog comment or send them a sweet email. You don't need to belong to the blog ring to practice "Random Acts of Kindness". Random means anyone can do it. RAOK's don't need to cost money either. You can brighten someone's day just by saying something nice to them. Go out in your neighborhood and tell someone they look nice. You can make someone's day without spending money. Actually I prefer RAOK's that don't cost someone money. Thoughts are special as they come straight from the heart. I bet you didn't know I could be this mushy, soak it up, it doesn't happen often.
Here's a bunch of links so you can send free E-cards. We're all busy but take a couple of minutes and make someone feel special.
Now lets all go spread some sunshine.
