Even Bigger Hugs!

Sometimes you have an idea and part of you gets really excited by it, and another part of you thinks it could never work. A couple of days ago I set up this blog and started randomly spreading hugs around blogs.

I started with a couple of sites I've visited before, and followed some of the links in the sidebars. Sometimes I would click on commenters and leave a hug on their site. Sometimes I just hit "Next Blog" a the top of the page and see where it takes me.

The response has been amazing.

So I have an EXTRA BIG ((HUG)) for Jennifer, who was the first to respond and brave enough to leave a comment which really helped break the ice for everyone else.

I have HUGE ((HUGS)) for:
Justice Fergie
Eryl
Savannah
Calabar Gal
Joke Mail
Kate
Kim
Her Indoors
Tara Marie
Ice
Neighbour
Ange
Kelsey
who have all responded to my first wave of ((HUGS))

And there are BONUS ((HUGS)) for
Savannah
Calabar Gal
Joke Mail
Her Indoors
Kate
for putting links on their sites and spreading the ((HUGS))

You are all truly wonderful people who are helping to spread a bit of warmth in a cynical world.

You're so right Jennifer ((HUGS))

Bigger Hugs said...

Thanks for your kind words Kelsey ((HUGS))

To put a button on your blog, first depends on whether you're using the original template system, or have upgraded to the new template layouts.

Go to the buttons post below, and copy the code of the button you want and paste it into notepad or something, then change all the square []brackets into angular <> ones.

If you'restill on classic blogger templates, then go here for help. If you're on New blogger layouts, then Savannah got help by going here

Big ((HUGS)) and hope that helps :)

savannah said...

Dr Maroon said...

I think this is a superb idea. You should know that I am Scottish and am therefore hug deficient. I shall install hug buttons forthwith.

Chase said...

thanks for your hugs.
ask anyone and they will tell you i am a very cynical person.
but sometimes even sardonic weirdoes need a hug.
so thankyou.
xoxo
hugs to you too.

Thank you for my hugs, Bigger Hugs.

I did try to install the bear hugs button on my sidebar but it came out looking like code, with no link, so I've put you on my blog-roll instead.

Kim Ayres said...

I'll install a button today :)

Bigger Hugs said...

If you can't figure out the button, don't worry about it Puppy. A link on your site makes it easier to come for a hug anytime you want :) ((HUGS)) to you :)
