Kindness Challenge Blog about Your 14-Day Kindness Journey!

This post is about the 14-Day Kindness Challenge for Nov 2012 where over hundreds of participants from around the world get together in spirit to do 14 acts of kindness over 14 days. The challenge is now over, but you can still do the tasks in your own time. Visit the overview page for all Kindness Challenge tasks and posts.

Blog about the Kindness Challenge

I know some of you participants have your own blogs. Some of you have already told me that you are planning to blog about your 14-day kindness journey.

I say… THAT IS A FANTASTIC IDEA AND ALL OF US SHOULD GO FOR IT!!

Come Nov 1, I will be blogging about *MY* 14-day kindness journey via the daily task entries on PE. I will be blogging about my Day 1 progress and results in Day 2′s post, my Day 2 progress and results in Day 3′s post, and so on.

The reason why I’ll be blogging about my journey is because (a) it gives me accountability to do the tasks and live up to the 14 days of kindness which I had signed up for, and (b) it is a great way to show others how I’m applying kindness onto my life and how all of you can do the same too.

Blogging has always been an essential enabler in my growth; this is why I had always been so relentless in my sharing on PE. Besides the fact that I want to share my life with all of you and enable you to grow through my life experiences, blogging also helps me to self-reflect and become a better person.

Because of that, I’d hereby like to officially invite all of you to blog about YOUR 14-day kindness journey from Nov 1 to Nov 14.

Not only will it be a great way to inspire people around you, it will also provide a great accountability platform for you to complete the 14 days’ worth of tasks. I once made this statement: “You can never control or change how others think, feel, or act. You can only change how you think, feel, and act, and lead by example.” By openly blogging about your 14-day kindness journey, you will clearly be leading by example and giving others a chance to learn from you.

Your Task: Blog about Your 14-Day Kindness Journey

Here’s how to get going.

  1. Create your blog.
    • For those without blogs, create a brand new blog just to blog about your 14-day kindness journey! It’s super easy to do that nowadays. WordPressBlogger, and Xanga are all blogging platforms you can use. Any tech newbie can easily create a blog and start blogging in minutes.
    • For those with blogs, skip to the next step.
  2. Pledge your participation
  3. Share your blog details!
  4. Then, blog about your journey in the next 14 days!
    • For the next 14 days, blog about your kindness journey on your blog, at a rate of one entry per task per day.
    • You should still share your daily results in the comments sections of the daily task posts as part of your daily task commitment. (Day 1′s results on Day 1′s comments section, Day 2′s results on Day 2′s comments section, etc.)

If you are a total blogging n00b and/or you do not wish to take this step, it’s fine. You don’t need to blog about your 14-day kindness journey if you don’t want to, just that it will be loads of fun and I feel it will further accentuate your journey. You can still share your results in the comments sections of the daily task posts, which is really the key place where you should post your daily results anyway.

Check Out the Blogs of The 14-Day Kindness Journey Participants!

As an incentive and encouragement to all of you blogging about YOUR 14-day kindness journey, I will be showcasing your blog URLs here!

Personal Excellence has over one million page views a month, a Google page rank of 4, and is linked by over thousands of sites from around the world. Having your site linked from PE will undoubtedly help boost the credibility of your site in the search engines’ eyes and perhaps draw new visitors to your website.

By having your blog listed here, it will also give PE readers ideas on how they can go about doing the 14-day kindness challenge and help inspire them to be better people through your writing.

Blogs will be listed on a first come first serve basis! Note that to avoid spammers, only those who have posted at least a post announcing their participation in the Kindness Challenge will have their blogs listed below.

    Hey now that it’s on a roll, lets get to 1000!!!!!
    If everyone reported on FB and got everyone they got on board I think it could be done.
    This is awesome.

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      PAW, if we can get it up to a 1,000, that would be really awesome!! I’m rallying as many people as I can by getting this out to the media outlets and pushing everyone on my social media networks to take part. Let’s all do our part to get as many participants as possible! :D

      Hey Miste, that’s fantastic! :D I noticed there are no entries on your blog yet-I assume you created it specifically for the kindness challenge? :) You can get the ball rolling by posting about your participation in the challenge! Perhaps share your thoughts about the challenge and what you hope to get out of it.

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hi Qin Tang! :D How awesome to have you join the Kindness Challenge and blog about your process! Hope you are doing well and look forward to having a great 14 days ahead with you! :D

  • Lulu
    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Hey Lulu! :) Great job! Perhaps you would want to have a link back to the kindness challenge at http://personalexcellence.co/blog/kindness-challenge/ so that your visitors can check out more about the challenge itself?

      Regarding your (lack of) results for Day 0, it’s okay if some of your friends refused to join. Perfectly okay. What’s most important is that you have tried! :) And hey, who knows-perhaps some of your friends might be inspired to join after seeing you do the acts of kindness for 2-3 days straight! :)

      Welcome aboard the 14-Day Kindness Challenge!! Let’s get started!

  • http://www.teens.mindset-coaching.com Dolly Yeo

    I am very happy to have blog after such a long time. This challenge helps me to breakthrough my own mental block about blogging directly into my http://www.teens.mindset-coaching.com ! I used to ask my webmaster to do so because I am a techno phobia person. Below is my journal on how I feel after the hugs I gave to my daughter, a stranger and my client!

    As I journal this on my ipad, on my way to meet my client, I felt warmth in my heart. I am also aware of the onlookers in that cafe. This elderly man is around his seventies. I m only guessing. Arising out of this kindness act, there are three generations. My youngest daughter is 17, I m in my fifties and the gentleman in his 70′s. we can definitely open everyone’s heart. He spoke Chinese, I spoke English & some Chinese:) It does not matter what language we speak, it is the milk of human kindness that we all yield for. I have asked for my client to share with me how he felt, no answer yet! :dance:

    • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

      Awesome work Dolly! So great to have you blogging about the challenge. :D You are being quite the exemplar to people, especially those in the same age bracket and phase of life as you! You prove that one can be actively growing and passionate about life no matter how old or young one is.

      PS: The article on Kindness Challenge is up in yesterday’s (Nov 1) Wanbao! Your interview quote was inside! :)

  • Corey

    Hey Celes!

    Super excited for this 14-Day Challenge. November’s becoming a month of challenges for me! I’m setting myself some fantastic goals this month, and blogging my journey along the way as part of it. I think blogging about it is a great way to stay motivated, too.

    I will be updating my blog every day along the challenge at my blog ‘Welcome to My World’

  • Fufu

    Hi Celes. I have a blog which I haven’t searched for viewers accurately yet since I just started some weeks ago and still thinking of articles to add but I’ll give you the link soon. Hope it’s not to late to give you the link of my blog yet.(Conflicted a lot whether to yes or no) I’ll write the post first

    • http://baskedinsunshine.blogspot.com/ Fufu

      My blog title: Basked in Sunshine

      My blog URL: http://baskedinsunshine.blogspot.com/

      The URL of your post: http://baskedinsunshine.blogspot.com/2012/11/join-me-in-14-day-kindness-challenge.html

      I’m aware that I’m 3 days late and I hope I’m still on time. :sweat: It’s that since the blog is still so new I was very unsure whether to share it or not but if you’d allow me then I hope I’m still on time. What I’ve had in mind is to write this 3 day’s tasks and then place the right date on each one so in the history it doesn’t look like I wrote them all in one day and from the on actually write one per day.

      • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

        Hi fufu, that’s beautiful!! I love the strong energy and spirit you have presented in your kickoff post. I’m sure those reading your site will be very inspired by what you share in the next 14 days! I’ve added your site to the blog roll, so welcome aboard! :D

        • Fufu

          A bit late but thank you Celes so much for the opportunity! :) By the way, there’s something I’d love to let you know Celes!! :dance: , I contacted the local newspaper about my blog and they are gonna interview me next week and I’m going to be in the local newspaper!! :mrgreen: I almost can’t believe it and in less than an hour they had already replied! :D The person that replied said that he considers me to be emotionally mature and that he sees potential for my age (17). I almost want to scream of happiness!! :D I’ll send you the link as soon as the newspaper posts it. This is one of the happiest days of my life. I hope it brings more readers to your blog as well due to the links of PE from the Kindness Challenge! :)

          • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

            Wow, that’s insane Fufu!! Congratulations and I’m so happy for you! :D Which paper is it and do you know what they will be interviewing you about? (Like the topic or the focus and all?)

            • Fufu

              Thank you Celes! ;) It’s called ‘Villalba Online’. It’s a newspaper only locals would know about but I still consider a big step and I’m not really sure what the interview will be about, but having read past interviews they might ask questions related with what drove me to start the blog, my vision, my hobbies, what message I’d like to convey for other youths, etc.

              • Fufu

                Celes!!! The article in “Villalba Online” just came out like half an hour ago! :) It’s in Spanish but you should be able to translate it with google translate (or if you want I can translate it for you)

                Here’s the link: http://villalbaonlinepr.com/index.php/home/escuelas/1495-adolescente-villalbena-desarrolla-su-personalidad-con-la-introspeccion-y-el-deseo-de-ayudar.html

                As a side note I was so nervous before the interview! :o My heart kept racing but at the same time there was this feeling of excitement and this sensations of the start of something new I hadn’t felt in ages!! When I saw the journalist I smiled slightly and my nervousness went away since he was really kind! We sat at the library where my librarian went crazy and happy because she didn’t knew.

                At first he asked simple questions like my full name, where do I live, family members, schools I had gone to and then the other questions made me a bit nervous when he asked my passion, my reason for blogging, what did I wish to study, who did I admire(and I mentioned you Celes :sweat: ). We also talked about the kindness challenge and I told him how the kindness challenge was in PE and how I was sharing my experience from the challenge at PE.

                When he asked my passion I noticed how I honestly felt a huge passion on my words when I said “I felt unsatisfied with my life so I wanted to work on a goal. I believe in dreams and I want to help others see the world in a positive light and know that dreams – can – be real. :)

                And what surprised me was..that he offered me a post to write for the online newspaper because he liked me style!! My gosh I died right there! :O I accepted and now I’ll be writing one post a week on the newspaper in the “social life” category which is a category for personal development. For now I won’t be paid but I don’t care because I really love writing and it’s always been my dream to write in a newspaper! :love:

                I’m so happy I want to hug you right now!! *hugs* If it weren’t because of the kindness challenge I’d had never started blogging officially and as soon as finish writing my posts for the kindness challenge I’ll start writing my own articles. thank you so much for the inspiration!! :hug:

                • http://personalexcellence.co Celes

                  Wow, that is amazing fufu!!! :D I’m so happy for you!!! And I am thinking back to one of the times in the not so distant past when you were just talking about your personal dreams of writing your blog and publishing comic books (and your frustration with the obstacles in your way). Doesn’t this show that when you have the intention, the universe will help you as long as you take action on your dreams??

                  Aw fufu, I’m so excited that things are now coming your way one wave after another. :D This is definitely great exposure and also a great thing to put on your own portfolio and your resume for the future. Keep us updated on how this gig goes, yeah?? :D Not everyone can claim to have a column in a newspaper, much less someone your age! I’m so proud of you girl!! :D

                • Fufu

                  Thank you Celes! :hug: I hadn’t thought about the part of me being able to claim writing a column at my age from now on. :) And it’s true just some months ago (Maybe even weeks?) I was sad about being unable to share my comic books or my blog but I knew this is what I wanted and the universe is responding well! Cheers and ok I’ll keep you updated occasionally! :)
