A New Day

I ask you to do a lot. This time, it is simply a small click. Perhaps more than once during the day, maybe moving around to different computers if you work in a space with multiple computers. I, for one, am hitting a local library where I can log-on each computer and click once.

It is such an enormously small thing--a click.

The day that Allison lost Zoë is forever marked her "best day ever" on Wordpress because it is the day that the most people visited her blog. For her own emotional well-being, she needs this post to be taken off her blog dashboard. The way to do that is to create a new record for visits to her blog.

On Thursday, May 29, please click on Allison's blog, Our Own Creation, and help replace that post with whatever is currently up on her blog that day. Everyone needs to visit on the same day--May 29th--because if we simply click throughout the week, it won't bump the day she lost Zoë from that section of the dashboard. I am writing this now to give us time to spread the word. Take the graphic I created and place it on your own blog. Don't worry--I'll remind you to click that day.

We need 2,350 people to visit Our Own Creation on May 29th. We need 1,785 people visit Sweet Zoë.

We just raised $3000 for a FET. We can raise a couple thousand hits. Are you with me?

Can this be U.T.E.R.U.S.'s last spring fling before we have a quick nap? Isn't it all about sending love when it really comes down to it? Reminding a person that they're never alone in all of this?

Oh, what a terrible thing to have marked on that day. We'll make sure that changes.

If I could stop crying enough to be coherent...

Thank you. I felt so silly asking but I just couldn't take it anymore and Shannon thought I should ask for help.

I don't post to Sweet Zoe anymore. The letter to them on my due date was my final post there (at least for now), but I'll be sure to put something worthwhile up on Our Own Creation on Thursday. Kind of like having snacks when people come to visit.

Aurelia said...

Dude, I'll be there.

STE said...

I will totally do this.

Julia said...

This is a fabulous idea. Not in the sense of "oh, how fun! PARTY!" but in the sense of "what a genuinely wonderful thing to do." Thanks for starting it.

Stacie said...

"Best Day Ever." Horrible. We ca do this. The internet is a big place, lots of people, sitting at work, avoiding work, clicking.

calliope said...

oh wow. I am there. Will get out the flares and direct all traffic there on the date.

A.M.S. said...

Just so you know, since Mel posted this (and a few others of you have already made blog posts as well) there have been 578 views of my blog. You almost managed to fix the problem before you started! I have the feeling that Thursday is going to be amazing.

Ok, getting weepy again. Gotta go now.

Tracy said...

Consider it done!

Jendeis said...

So lovely. We can do this. We are the strongest people I know.

BethH6703 said...

I'm so there, and will do my best to get some other traffic there, too.

donna said...

I'll be clicking, you can count on it.
