I posted about some bloggers that requested help/prayers/encouragement and it reminded me how great this blogging community is and how helpful we all are to each other! Wouldn’t it be great if you were paired with a blogger who had the responsibility to pray for you, encourage you, and help you in any way they can?! I thought it’d be a wonderful and exciting opportunity for bloggers to get paired up, get to know each other, and share prayer requests or exciting activities happening for the month. I have participated in multiple exchanges over the past few years (seasonal & monthly) and all of them were wonderful, but the truth is, there are times that I just can’t afford a $15 gift + shipping. This is a way for bloggers to still find encouragement and power in an exchange without having to hit their pocket book first.
If your partner has a race coming up, send a tweet cheering them on.
If they’re going through a personal struggle, commit to praying for them for the month.
If you know they love starbucks, send them a surprise $5 giftcard happy in the mail.
These are just a few examples.
Rules of the Exchange:
You have from the 20th-27th to sign up.
You’ll receive your partner on the 1st of every month.
You have until the 4th to contact your partner.
Only 1 requirement: send a letter or note of encouragement *snail mail style!*
Ways to help your partner:Get to know them first, share any prayer requests, send encouraging notes & happies, guest post for each other, provide blogging tips/tricks, and any other great ideas you may have for your partner for the month.
There won’t be any link-up at the end of the month because I feel like there are plenty of link-ups in the blogging world, but that’s why I encourage you to have them guest post, so you can still share who your partner is and use the button (located on my side bar) to let other people know that you met them through Bloggie Pen Pals. I hope this will grow into something powerful and encouraging and we’ll see tons of prayer requests answered and bloggers being encouraged on a daily basis!
This is a JUDGEMENT FREE zone: Some bloggers will be in their means to send an additional gift and they are welcome/encouraged to do so while other bloggers may only be able to afford the simple letter or note. Be mindful of others situations. Don’t feel obligated or guilty to send a gift if you receive one. Don’t be upset if you send a gift and don’t get one in return.
