my response to each #reverb10 daily prompt is a tip, a suggestion you might find useful in juicing every single succulent drop out of this month-long experience. some of the tips are things i learned over the past year; some are answers to questions reverbers have asked me privately; some are things i just pull out of thin air.

at the end of each day (or roughly thereabouts), the tip will be folded into the comprehensive list, a.k.a. the marrow. and hey, if a tip sparks another idea, i’d sure appreciate it if you’d drop me a note in the comments section so i can sprinkle it out to others. and do some sprinkling of your own: point others to the marrow in case there’s something here they can use.

now let’s get on with it cause my wand’s a wastin’ . . .

today’s prompt: Beautifully Different. Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful. (Author: Karen Walrond)

today’s tip: reach out to at least 3 people every day and smack ’em with a smile, sprinkle a compliment, dabble out a spot of encouragement. twitter brings out the nice in people, and let’s face it: nice breeds nice.


something new: recap i don’t know about you, but cali‘s prompt on community really revved up my circuits and lit up my board. i didn’t make it around to everybody, but here, in no particular order, are some of the blogs that i especially enjoyed on yesterday’s blog crawl:

    • whollyjeanne

  2. Julie Jordan Scott

    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.

  3. Liz

    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

  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 🙂
