BLOGGER POSITIVITY MOVEMENT! {A Challenge to Share the Bookish Blogging Love}

There’s negativity galore parading around in the bookish community, especially lately.

Now, I will admit, when drama first plopped down in my twitter feed, my reaction was exactlyyy this:

gus-psyche-popcorn

But then more drama moved in. And more. And more? AND MORE. It wasn’t entertaining anymore; it wasn’t funny.

TWITTER IS NOT A PERMANENT RESIDENCE FOR NEGATIVITY, thankyouverymuch.

It’s Fadwa’s marvelous post, “Where’s All the Love?”, that built my decision: I’m going to do something about this negativity! I’m going saturate the bookish blogging world with inescapable positivity!

But I can’t do it alone. So I ask you, chums, will you help me smolder bookish buddies with love?


What Exactly is the Blogger Positivity Movement?

The Blogger Positivity Movement is a challenge wherein you spread love to fellow bookworms/bloggers.

How Does the Movement Work?

It’s simple!

  • You sign up for the Movement and are paired with a bookish blogger.
  • For the month of October, you leave 3 comments a week on your blogging partner’s post. Each comment should include 3 things you loved or found positive about their post/blog.
  • You find 1 newbie blogger to welcome with love to the bookish community.
  • You find 1 old sage-blogger and ask what they find positive about the bookish community.

That’s it, bud!

But I have lots of things to do! I don’t know if I have time!

I understand! Completely! If you don’t comment 3 times a week, don’t worry about it. Just do the best you can, that’s all your blogging partner will expect from you. But I urge you to do all you can to spread the love!

 If you have NO time, it isn’t the best idea to join. It wouldn’t be fair to your blogging buddy if you never interact with their posts. Even if you don’t have time to join, you can still help by spreading the word! (use #BloggerPositvityMovement on social media!)

Neat-o! How do I Join?

To sign up, just:

  • Click the photo below; it’ll take you to a google form. Just fill the short questionnaire out!
  • Write a blog post about your joining of the Movement.
  • Spread the word! Spread the love! (use #BloggerPositvityMovement on social media!)

(Sign-ups end September 29 so I have time to pair everyone up for October 😚)


    How do you feel about the drama in the bookish community? Are you laughing and munching on popcorn as it unfolds, or are you becoming a little tired of it all? Are you joining the movement? Are you spreading love and positivity?

    1. OMG REALLY YAYAYAYAY!!! HAHHA that’s me all the time in school lolol. You are so sweet! The idea is all thanks to your inspiration! Oooh sorry about that. Med student! Dang! That’s gotta be hard! I completely understand, I’m not sure how I’m going to manage this challenge myself whoops πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ YAY! That’s what really matters!
      😘😘

    2. OH MY GOD YEEEEES !! I FREAKING LOVE THIS IDEA ! ❀❀
      I actually read your post on the day it got posted while I was bored in class *oups* but I didn’t get to comment until now.
      Anywho, this is genius and I wish I could sign up but I am drowning under life #medstudentstrugglesπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ so it wouldn’t be fair to anyone to be paired with me because I don’t think I’ll be able to commit, I’m already struggling with my usual comments. That being said, I’ll keep spreading love and positivity throughout the community.
      Lots of virtual hugs to you πŸ˜„

    3. I am in love with this idea! just filled the form ❀ ( I know it's quite late but still) Also I nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award so if you haven't already done it and are interested, I would love to hear your answers!-https://sunshineandcyclones.wordpress.com/

    4. This is such a lovely idea!

      That there is actual drama among book bloggers is something I have only recently realised. It strikes me as one of the dumbest things ever (why do people care so much?! I don’t know if it’s that I’m older (23), or just generally apathetic, but I can’t imagine getting so distressed by someone disliking a book that I would personally insult them). It makes me happy that there are some bloggers doing something about the situation πŸ™‚ I am very pro-positivity!

    5. Yesssssss Becca you’re a genius! But you already know that. Basically… I’d love to join in, but I’m currently on a blogging hiatus. However, I plan to come back on October first. Can I still join if my sign-up post is late? πŸ˜‰
      -Amy (I’ll sign up on the forum, but of course if I can’t just disregard it)

    6. This is such a great idea! I dislike it when people think that they are so tough just because they are behind a screen. When they say something hateful and rude, it just brings the other person down! I will have to join in on this event. πŸ˜€

    7. Right!! I haven’t read it yet either, but I do plan on reading it πŸ™‚ I was actually attacked by some Maas haters because I disagreed with what they were saying – and I was really polite about it as well!! – but they just went crazy on me! I was like whoa … and death threats is definitely way too far!! It is just a book, whether you love it or you hate it, the author doesn’t deserve that!

    8. That’s true. Normally I just laugh to myself, I meant why get worked up?? Everyone in the bookish world goes back to loving everyone eventually. Buuuuuut not this time! Not really! I haven’t read EMPIRE of Storms, but it doesn’t really matter. Maas can write WHATEVER SHE WANTS. And we can feel about that any way we want. And we can say whatever we want about her books. But attacking her PERSONALLY and sending DEATH THREATS is too far. Forgive me for saying this, but it’s just a book.

    9. WAHOO!! Wow, you are the scrumptiousest for doing that! The world needs a little (psssh or A LOT) more of you going around.
      No problem! I’ll get you paired with the newest blogger signing up ☺️

    10. (I pressed send before I finished, wow xD)
      Anyways, I was saying it has been difficult to meet the book blogger community with all the drama going on and I would love to do it through this challenge! Would love to spread the love~

    11. I would love to join this, it seems like it could be so much fun! I’m very new to the book blogosphere and I’m not really sure what all the drama has been about, I just knew it was there and I didn’t want to be a part of that. It has been a little difficult, though, to meet

    12. Love this idea! I admit I haven’t been privy to much of the drama floating around (I’ve just heard about poor Ms. Maas) but I’m all for spreading positivity when circumstance calls for it πŸ˜€

    13. Normally drama doesn’t really bother me because it usually blows over. But everything with Maas and the people who genuinely being harsh and attacking people because of a differing of opinion really is getting out of control.

    14. This is such a great idea. I’ve seen too many people absolutely bashing authors lately and tearing down every idea and decision they make in the meanest ways and it’s just so unnecessary!

    15. I am in desperate need of positivity so sign me up! I will always speak up and champion diversity and inclusion in literature, but it eventually get emotionally exhausting so I have been taking it easy.
      Thanks for doing this. I would like to get paid with a newer blogger. πŸ™‚ Anyway, off to fill out the form!
