    THANK YOU for including me, Jeanne. Thank you.

    • whollyjeanne

      you are welcome. i thank you again for such a wonderful post. we’ll talk.

  2. JulieJordanScott2

    Oh, and I just wanted to say, part of the joy for me is commenting and being commented in return. I am so pleased when the mutual engagement swings up AND I know some days we have more time and some days we have less time. Am loving the insights and emotions and breakthroughs as we join together in #reverb10

    • whollyjeanne

      isn’t it wonderful? doesn’t take that long, and oh the connections we make. rich, deep, meaningful, inspiring connections. so glad you’re part of #reverb10. an integral part.

    I like the idea of smacking someone with a smile…a gentle smack of a smile for you, love you.

    • whollyjeanne

      it’s something you do all the time, sugar.

  4. Sally G.

    So far, that’s Twitter’s strongest platform for me ~ the way it allows reach and access to those receptive to giving and receiving inspiration, encouragement, support, information and laughs. By the light of your wand, I join your parade, giving thanks for your Love, and keeping step with your pace. (Okay, that last part’s not true, your pace surpasses mine ~ but I’m trying!)

    • whollyjeanne

      and sally, were it not for twitter, i wouldn’t’ve met you. so twitter stays on my thankful-for list!

  5. Allison Blass

    I love that you’re doing tips! And I definitely agree that nice breeds nice. More people need to remember that!

    • whollyjeanne

      it would be nice if more people knew about the boomerang effect and carried it out into the world, wouldn’t it? let me know if you have a tip to share!

  6. beth

    i like your tips….and i try to do that everyday 🙂

    • whollyjeanne

      thanks, beth. i’ll bet you do nice everyday, and i’ll bet at least most of the time, you get nice in return.

  7. Mrsmediocrity

    well thank you, a nice surprise to see my name on you list. you are the best fairy godmother ever,i just know it. and i’m so glad that you are here.

    • whollyjeanne

  8. Rebecca Hurst

    I’m really enjoying your #reverb10 posts – they are always fresh and insightful. Thank you!

  9. Stereo.*

    Love the tip! It’ll be a breeze in London where most people are perpetually scowling 😉

  10. Lollygagger

    I love today’s tip! I am one of those smile at everybody people, and I’m always amazed when it’s not returned. But it’s really a great feeling when it is returned 🙂

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
