Flip The Hate

I tend to dream posts. No, seriously. During that twilight time in the morning when you’re half asleep, half awake? I start writing posts in my head. Mostly crap, but I get a general outline for what I want to say on any given day.

Today, I woke up mad, wanting to talk about two really horrible customer service experiences I had recently. Like, really really bad. I even was going to let you vote which one was worse. Ha. I got so ticked, I woke up enough to shuffle over to my office and groggily lay my hands on the keyboard.

And then I thought, why?

So you all could get pissed off too?

What good would it do any of us?

I am tired of being mad.

So, instead, I am going to remind you of some of the fantastic blogs I have on my bloglist, and encourage you to go check them out today. A flip the hate day. A share the love day.

Also, why don’t you suggest some new blogs I may be missing in that fine list?

Annissa & Peter Mayhew – Hope for Peyton

Lucrecer Braxton – Art Slam

Stephanie Wilder Taylor – Baby on Bored

Giyen Kim – Bacon Is My Enemy

JoAnn – The Casual Perfectionist

Sloane Berrent – The Causemopolitan

Deb Rox – Deb on the Rox

Helen Jane Hearn – Helen Jane.com

Laurie White – Laurie Writes

Kristin – Maine Momma

Cathy Holecko – Mayberry Mom

Maggie – Okay Fine Dammit

Jason Mayo – Outnumbered

Bill – Poop & Boogies

Rachel Devine – Sesame Ellis

Sizzle –

Tara Anderson – Tall Tara

Helen Dujardin – Tartelette

OK. Whew. That’s it for now.
Don’t worry, I’m sure I’ll get back to being a complete wench tomorrow.

    Awesome thanks!

    And dammit, you should be on this list too. I knew I would forget people!

  2. Tickled Red

    I walk around talking internally to myself about post ideas…LOL, I now carry a notepad to jot down some of them or they will fly away never to be found again. I am sorry to hear that you woke up angry but I love your “flip” idea!! Thanks for sharing some lovely blogs. I can’t wait to check out some new reads 🙂

  3. Sue (still at nobaddays)

    Funny – I read a whole chapter last night on anger and how to feel it and deal with it in healthy ways. Well done, girl — acknowledge it, feel it but take action in healthy ways. Flipping the hate does us all good! Oh, and I just discovered Art Slam a week or so ago on my own 😉 !

  4. Aimee Greeblemonkey

    Sue – send me the name of that book! 😉

    way to go, girl.

  6. Stephanie Quilao

    Good for you! Goes along with that saying, “What we focus on we increase.” Better to increase more love in the world 🙂

    I can’t believe that you’re including me on such a list! Thanks Greebs…I’m honored.

    Also, what if you pitched a new show to HGTV called, “Flip that Hate House”? A combination of anger management and complete residential overhaul? Maybe?

    I cannot wait to go read these, most I’ve never visited before. And my google reader is PACKED. I love more reasons to procrastinate! Thanks!

  13. Megan

    Besides you, I love Scary Mommy, Uppercase Woman, Her Bad Mother, Redneck Mommy – OMG, there are tons of great blogs. Not enough time in the day.

    I do the same thing…writing in my head in the wee small hours of the morning/night. Sad thing is, rarely do they see the light of day, or, keyboard if you will!

    So here’s a good newish one: Six in the City http://6inthecity.com

    I like to live vicariously through her photos. You might enjoy!

  15. Mr Lady, Or, you know, Shannon. If you're in the inner circle of trust and stuff. :)

    I love Flip the Hate day. Seriously.

    Miss you, dude.

  16. Deb

    I love you and Flip the Hate. Like a pancake, baby. {thanks!xoxo}

  17. Logical Libby

    Why is it hate posts always seem to write themselves, and pleasant posts are either forgotten or prove hellish to write?

    Good call on the flip.

  18. Britt Michaelian

    What a great idea! Flip it around! Spread the love, not the hate. Good karma is awesome. (But I’d still like to vote on the two jerks~ lol). Anyway, I love all of the blogs you have listed! Great selection.
    Here are a few more that I love:
    (had to list mine in there, just cuz 😉

    One more thing… I do the sleepblogging too! That’s so funny! And I also have an entire outline ready to go when I finally get to my computer! lol. Cheers to sleepbloggers. Thanks for a great post.
