Blog Spotlight: Be Nice to a Stranger

I was originally going to talk about Stripey today, but changed my mind.

Be Nice to a Stranger is a project that (fellow writer and blog follower) Erinn has undertaken. The goal is to do one nice thing for a stranger for the month of December. The nice activity varies from calling the insurance company just to tell them they are doing a good job to helping pay for someone's medication.

We should be nice all the time, but I'm the first to admit that I'm rather bitchy and Masshole-y instead. Reading about what Erinn's doing reminds me of my shortcomings in that department and still makes me feel a little fuzzy inside because in the month where most people forget what is meant by "the spirit of Christmas," Erinn is encapsulating it.

And now through the end of the year, she's going to donate money to a charity for every comment on her blog entry.

So go over to Erinn's December project and read about what she has done. There's still a couple of days left in the month so maybe we can all follow Erinn's lead and make someone's day.


  1. Thanks so much for the shout out! I'm sorry strippy didn't get his moment in the sun.
    Tomorrow I'm going to a TV Station and doing a 5 minute interview about the blog. It's like I'm famous but not so much.

  2. I'm sure Stripey is in the sun right now.

    I think you should put the clip up on You Tube and blog about the experience so we can all see.

    I'm very proud of you, by the way. And that's why you got the shout out.
