Blogging For Peace

Recently I stumbled upon a blog called Inspire the Idea that included a badge titled “Bloggers For Peace”.  Naturally this grabbed my attention so I clicked on the image to investigate.  What I learned was that there is a blogger named Kozo with a blog called Everyday Gurus and he started a writing challenge called Bloggers for Peace.  Bloggers who join this movement are simply asked to post the badge on their blog and to agree to post at least one article on their blog per month during 2013 about the topic of peace.

I have decided to join this movement.  This will be a challenge for me because I have struggled to post once per month as it is, and I have other things I want to write about as well.  So why am I taking on this challenge?

1)  Peace is one of my core values.  I believe in the possibility of peace in every aspect of its definition from personal inner tranquility to concord between couples, friends, political parties, cultures, ethnic groups, religions, countries, etc.  I think it is fairly obvious that we do not see a lot of peace in the news today and this is unfortunate.  It is out there.  There are people striving for peace in every aspect of life.  In every community.  Everywhere.  I personally feel the importance of standing up for peace in all of these areas and therefore I feel this Bloggers for Peace project is a great fit for what I am striving to accomplish at Steve’s Thinking Space and in my life in general.

2)  In my recent blog about my 2013 New Year’s Resolutions, New Year’s Resolutions: Looking Back and Stepping Forward, I mentioned that one of my goals in 2013 was to publish at least two blog posts per month.  Participating in Bloggers For Peace will help me accomplish this goal in a positive way – by publishing quality content on my beliefs, feelings, aspirations related to peace.

3)  One of the most exciting and important things about blogging is networking with other bloggers that have similar interests.  By joining the Bloggers for Peace challenge I will have the opportunity to get to know many other bloggers that value the concept of peace in all of its dimensions.  In essence we are forming an online community of bloggers that strive for peace in the world.  When communities of people get together for a cause that they believe in, the momentum that is gained can help accomplish great things.

I look forward to the journey of blogging for peace!  Thank you Kozo at Everyday Gurus for coming up with and promoting this great idea.

Finally, if you are a blogger and would like to join this movement, simply click on the image at the top of this post or on any of the links for Bloggers for Peace within the text of this article to find instructions for how to do so.

With Peace and Gratitude,

Steve Strother

    Yippeee, Steve. Those are great reasons to join B4Peace. I agree that there aren’t too many more important things to blog about than peace. I can testify that the connections you make through B4Peace will be some of the strongest web connections I have ever experienced. Maybe one day we can have a B4Peace convention!
    Welcome aboard. Thanks for joining. {{{Hugs}}} Kozo

    • Thank you Kozo for the great idea and all of the work you are putting into managing B4Peace. A B4Peace convention is a great idea. I have actually thought about how cool it would be to have a peace convention before – maybe starting locally at first and then growing it to something on a larger scale over the years. In the meantime I look forward to righting about peace as part of B4Peace!

  4. We’ll only reach outer-peace through inner-peace first. Thanks for sharing this. I’d be down for a Peace convention any day of the week.

    • I agree Terence. Inner-peace is essential in order for true, lasting outer-peace to take shape. I do like the idea of a peace convention. Something we will definitely all have to work on to make it a reality. Thank you for visiting my blog. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future as well!
