I’m wrapping up my week of celebrating bloggers high in NICENESS COEFFICENT’s by talking about two bloggers whose niceness is somewhat transcendent, in the sense that you really wouldn’t believe people like this exist, except they do, and somehow they still want to hang out with you.
Shannon O’Donnell (Book Dreaming): Shannon finds amazing, inspiring quotes. She does the whole Marvelous Middle Grade Monday thing, which would be enough to seal the deal right there. But Shannon’s stratospheric NICENESS COEFFICIENT comes from her persistence in being a source of uplift for others. Her determination to bring others up is so successful that a visit to her blog is like dipping into a well of feel-goodness. So, her impact on the world is multiplied by the many people she reaches, and that is like NICENESS SQUARED – a whole different category of Nicetude.
Sharon Mayhew (Random Thoughts): Sharon always has some cool sharing activity going on her blog: critique contests with agents, thoughts on her writing space, exotic pictures of places she’s visited. Right now she’s doing the A-Z blog fest with the theme: The ABC’s of a Good Friend. How perfectly her (and high in NICENESS COEFFICENT). But Sharon’s first and lasting impression on me was her great love of Lenny Lee, another blogger with sky-high Nicetude. She is a critique partner for this little man and constant supporter through his difficult tests and doctor’s visits. And nothing finds its way to my heart faster than someone who loves a child.
Blogger Roll: I’ve started a Blog Roll on my sidebar to recognize the bloggers I’ve highlighted this week. Handy for when I need my NICENESS booster shot.
