Small gifts are big.
Eleanor with her blog Give a Brick is a great example of how helping people is not just something for the wealthy and powerful. She shows how small contributions from ordinary people can change the world, or at least a small piece of the world and give great satisfaction. She says “Give a Brick” meaning give a small amount that you can afford and see how it can make a difference, help people and promote causes. A brick is a small thing but get a lot of them and you can build a cathedral. If you don’t know Eleanor, you should visit Give a Brick and get acquainted.
Give a coffee
In the spirit of Eleanor, I am suggesting today that we all Give a Coffee to CommenLuv. Almost every WordPress blogger will know that CommentLuv is the wonderful plugin that adds your latest post to the information provided when you add a comment. I am new to CommentLuv and am loving it but like a lot of people, I am happy to take free for granted and haven’t made a contribution to CommentLuv to let it’s author know how much I appreciate the effort.
Lately, CommentLuv has been slow in reflecting the most current post causing me to complain. How is it that this wonderful FREE service isn’t quite current? I came up with a couple of hypotheses:
1. CommentLuv is so successful and has so many users that the resources are strained.
2. The author of CommentLuv has to focus attention on other activities to feed small children at home.
These are just my ideas and may be completely wrong but it suggests that perhaps CommentLuv is not feeling the ‘Luv’ from it’s users in a way that makes it easy to keep operating smoothly.
Show the Luv
My solution today is to Give a Coffee to CommentLuv. Not literally but metaphorically like Eleanor’s Bricks. A fancy coffee in the US is about $4.00 so I just sent the value of a coffee to CommentLuv just to let the author know that I’m ‘luvin’ it. And I urge any of you that are loving CommentLuv like I am and haven’t given yet, give a coffee too. CommentLuv is worth way more than $4.00 but sending a coffee is a way to say to the author that I value this service and appreciate the work behind it. What about you? You can do it here.
