As you likely know by now, the “USA Make a Difference” proclamation is a call to action for all Americans to unite in a common mission to improve the lives of citizens of the United States! And acting on this mission can be as simple as wearing a mask when required, or even wearing one for times that are not mandatory. This, in conjunction with getting your vaccine shot(s), will help with the goal to achieve herd immunity.
Wearing a Mask for the Good of All!
Specifically, wear a mask? Because wearing a mask is not primarily something that you do to safeguard yourself, but rather is to protect others from potential airborne transmission from you. In turn, others who wear masks are helping you stay healthy. So, let us all wear our masks!
Blogs with Part-Time Mirth
But, putting the pandemic to the side, another way that you can easily help make a difference, can be as simple as telling a funny joke. Seriously! Levity can be a big healing agent. There are websites in the “Blog Coalition” family that occasionally put on a comedic. Sites with occasional funny bones are “Bigfoot Zombie,” “Disneyite,” and “Entertainment entrepreneurship.”
Making a difference in America can be summed up as as simply as being a part of making a change for the better. Positive change is not always easy, especially considering the intense obstacles we have in the form of COVID-19 and living in a divided country. The good new is though, you can be a part of making a difference in your community regardless of how large or small it is. One of the ways this can be implemented is by being aware of the triggers we are all experiencing and therefore having empathy for others. This includes those over the age of 50 as well as New York City, both of which are stigmatized.
Being a Role Model
Leadership does not have to mean you head up a big organization, leadership can also mean that the way you are living your life can be a positive example for others. The challenge is by being the reason someone else smiles. Try to maintain a realistic view of the world while simultaneously seeing the ways you can make a difference.
You can put your skills to work for others, bring joy to the United States, be a volunteer or mentor for someone or a community that needs it, say kind words to someone who is struggline and so on. The truth is you have some unique gift that others can benefit from. Think carefully aboutyour life and who you are and you will figure out a method by which you can make an impact. Although taking action o this revelation is always best, just thinking along these lines can have a positive difference with those you are close to.
The big questions in making a difference can be the seeking out solutions for problems and questions that exist in the present. How can we as a country help to make poverty to go away and the hunger with it? Is there a way we can make entergy cleaner without the stigma of a disruption and fear of some about losing their jobs? What part can you play in protecting wildlife and environments of natural beauty.
Embrace Becoming a Part of the Solution
We are proud to say an behalf of those developing it as well as participating volunteers that the next Make a Difference Day will occurr on Saturday, October 23rd. Although that is months away, it is never too early to embrace becoming a part of the solution.
So, consider doing an act of kindness that is unexpected or being a volunteer in your community. Those who are cynical do not understand why there are folks who are seeking to make a positive change, they think that “do good-ers” are out of their minds. “What a waste of energy” some think. But the truth is that when you are part of bringing hope and understanding to our country which is greatly needed, what you get in return internally for having a big heart, can make a great difference in your life as a human being.
Good morning all. We are very excited about the invention that today is being celebrated and has made a difference in the lives of countless people. Coverage of this special day can be found at USA Magicians, Web Design Magician and the Big Apple Awards. Join us in honoring the inventor and the invention.
Happy Winter Solstice everyone. It’s December 21, the shortest day of the year, and although still months away, Spring is coming. All is well here in the offices of “USA Make a Difference” and we bring you some new blog entries from today and our Blog Coalition.
The first post is from Celebify. The entry reminds us that with celebrity comes responsibility. Anyone can become famous if you want it enough and have allies like Celebify.
Create Profitable Marketing
In some ways Create Profitable Marketing picks up where Celebify left off. Becoming well known is really just a matter of marketing yourself with help from you staff and fans. If this is your path, you can cross the bridge (see photo above) to NYC and other important fame building cities on this day of the Winter Solstice.
Our third and last Blog Coalition post comes from DigiRefer, regarding becoming a manager via digital workers.
Brothers who made history? No we’re not speaking of the Stamas Bros, instead we are referring to Orville and Wilbur. Who? The Wright Brothers of course. Orville and Wilbur ultimately made a difference in the lives of many by successfully flying a plane in 1903. These Bros are our jumping off point for the three posts that we have selected for you today.
Do you know, or know of, someone who is in your community and is making a difference without even realizing it? Observing someone making a difference is a wonderful thing to see. There are several blogs online that were created with good intentions and a positive purpose such as giving us education, or making us laugh or even bringing people together through a club.
Giving Us Education
USA eLearning is a blog that creates eBooks and then has them distributed via someone else to provide “How To” education.
Making Us Laugh
Bigfoot Zombie follows the escapades of Bigfoot Zombie and can sometimes make us laugh.
Bringing Us Together Through a Club
Disneyite is a club that has the mission to give Disneyites from all over the world a place where they feel they can belong.
Strangely enough December 11th, today, is International Mountain Day. I’ll tell you why I find it odd. It is because of a dream I had last night that relates. In it I was faced with mountains to climb and the way that my life was closing in on me. I asked myself if I was going to fight for my life and climb my tallest mountains?
Designed to Take You Down
And the answer is, yes, of course. I am blessed to have much to live for in the relationships I have with family and friends. Even though like many of us, there are people willing and able to push us to the edge of the cliff. These people have mountains to hike up too but are ignoring them to fight you? Is that a productive action to take on their part? No, I believe they should stop meddling in other people’s business and instead climb their own mountains.
Aiming for Blogs
And again, yes, it is International Mountains Day and we have linked to a share from Yianni Stamas and his Blog Coalition journey that he is taking at the moment. The first entry is from NYC AIM, the apprentice program he developed that at first was in-person but not is online only.
Please NYC, Create
Next is USA Create. In this stop on his trek he examines International Mountain Day in motion now, as mentioned, December 11’s annual check-in with all of us, letting us know more about the part that mountains play in our live.
Another site that Yianni Stamas is reporting on today is DigiComArts.com that was originated at the New York Public Library. This occurred about 8 or 9 years ago during the early days of the Platinum PIAs which is an awards show. After an amazing 10 years, this event is transitioning to being under the warm care of us here at USA Make a Difference.
Yianni Stamas is doing the Press Junket thing, traveling through several of the blogs of the Blog Coalition and making his voice heard. This is the second day of him doing this. This is a path anyone can take when they have a message to get out. Today, December 9th, is Emmett Kelly Day. Coming up are three more sites that Stamas is visiting:
If your business includes updating content on a daily basis, it is a good idea to work out a system to do what you do following guidelines. This is in a sense the following of your content and sending yourself out through the door with the fresh content to share with others. For help in this area you might want to check out Home Business eLearning.
Help to Advance the Business of Others
If you supervise or do the new content for your publications yourself, chances are that you are your company’s media administrator. When developing content, be sure to try to think like your reader thinks. What is content of value for him or her? What helps him or her advance their business?
When in Doubt, Go Digital
And finally, do not be afraid to go go digital. Going digital is no longer some abstract thing in the future. It is NOW. Has your business gone digital enough?
