Been a bit since my last post — nose to the grindstone and all. I’m breaking one of my personally blogging rules (don’t post on a weekend), because I had a quick thought.
Some of you who follow me on Twitter or Facebook see I occasionally do #HappinessIs posts. This is something I did on occasion back when I maintained my LiveJournal account — I would say something that brought me a little happiness and ask others to comment with their own. Since I’ve moved into the microblogosphero, I’ve stopped explicitly asking and merely imply with the hashtag. Damn limitation of Twitter and all…
I do this because the Internet is filled with too much fucking bile, and I do it in order counterbalance some of my own bitterness. But enough implied asking, so here’s some explicit: join me. Something makes you feel good? Tweet and start with #HappinessIs. Maybe you’ll brighten someone else’s day. Hell, maybe you’ll brighten yours.
Seriously, people. There’s too much bile with people hating online. If you’re as sick of the Internet being a hate machine, help me here. Be the change we want.
