Bloggers for Peace — Missing in Action?

cloud for bluegrass blog

Note:  Yes, I missed a post yesterday so won’t succeed at the goal of posting daily for a month.  My last two or three NaBloPoMo posts have been on the Scribblings blog.

It occurred to me recently that I’d not seen a post from Kozo (formerly blogged on Everyday Gurus), who was one of the leaders of the Bloggers for Peace group.  Nor had I seen a like or comment from him; at one time he regularly stopped by  Went to his blog and got a message that the domain name expired.  Found him blogging elsewhere.

That got me wondering about the Bloggers for Peace group so I went to that site.  It’s still there but there hasn’t been a post in over a year.

The journey to peace is kind of my thing, so I’m really bummed to see that that once vibrant group has apparently fallen apart.  I’m wondering if no one is interested in blogging for peace?  Or are people interested but not in being part of a group of peace bloggers?  Or can we get something started?

I’m considering starting a once a week post using tips and exercises that I’ve shared in my workshops on stress management and the journey to peace.  As I’ve mentioned many times, I absolutely believe the journey to peace begins with each of us.  That we need to expand the number of people who hold the space of peace in the web and then the web will change.  So the focus would be exercises to help individuals find inner peace.

Would love feed back regarding levels of interest in somehow establishing a group of bloggers for peace, suggestions, etc.

  1. This happens so much … it’s tough.

    My own thought is that the original organizers may have moved on to other things … since you found the fellow, I don’t think it would be out of line to ask if you can take it over, if that’s something you would want to do.

    It’s a thought. If you don’t want to take it over, would you consider simply opening another blog about it?

    I’m sure you’ve already thought of both of these …

    • Well the taking it over thought occurred, but in a way I think it might be better to start anew — just not sure if I want to be the one to do it.
      I already think of this blog as being largely about peace — as I think every step toward greater emotional, physical and mental health is a step toward peace. So I thought maybe if I just started doing a weekly post about peace and made a category page for it, it would keep something going. But that doesn’t really necessarily create a community, unless people choose to do some of the exercises and comment or post about it.
      Thanks for such thoughtful suggestons!

  2. I like your peace blog idea. Keeping things simple seems to help in keeping them going.

    I also think there are cycles to things. I am getting inspired to write more on my Writing Your Destiny site in the next year as I see how it ties into my goals for next year.

    Have fun with whatever you choose to do. 🙂

    • I think it’s likely I’ll start the once a week post for peace idea but as far as building a blogging community around peace, I’m not sure what would do it — nor whether I want to be the one to lead it. Thanks for the input! [I was so pleased to see a Writing Your Destiny post pop up!]

  3. It’s an interesting concept, your bloggers community for peace, Leigh. But yes, leading it would be a big task.

    Now, about missing a day of posting. As far as Nano Poblano is concerned, that’s OK with us. 🙂 No reason for any stressing.

  4. Sounds interesting now that Kozo has moved on to other things (also worthy 🙂 )
    I have been having a bit of a break myself too – must be something in the water!
    Interested if unsure what I could possibly contribute…

Please add your thoughts; love a good discussion!
