What exactly is Secret Week?
For seven days, I’ll be sharing some of my deepest secrets on the blog as a way to let go of the burdens they have left with me. I’m encouraging others to do the same, be it on their blog or anonymously. For me this week will be all about letting myself be a little bit more vulnerable than usual and hopefully letting others know that they aren’t alone.
How can you participate?
There are a couple of ways to participate, depending on how comfortable you are with your secrets:
Share your secrets on your blog and link-up starting March 12: Starting that Monday (March 12) I’ll have a link-up going for the whole week for anyone to submit their secret posts to. You can post every day, a couple of days, or just one of the days – it’s 100% up to you.
Share your secrets anonymously to be posted on my blog throughout the week: For those that want to share something anonymously, I’ll be having posts with your secrets up throughout the week as well. All you have to do is submit your secret through my Formspring account by March 10 and it’ll be posted. You can do this anonymously so I won’t even know that it’s your secret unless you tell me who you are.
How can you spread the word?
There’s a button on the middle sidebar that you can post on your blog before Secret Week or on your blog posts during Secret week. The more, the merrier so I’d love for you to post it ahead of time even if you don’t plan on participating!
What about the negativity that could come from it?
I can’t promise you that you’ll only receive positive comments and that no one will be a jerk about you opening up. I wish I could, but I can’t since I can’t even guarantee that for myself. However, I do know that the blog world has always been a place for me to find people who support me when I need it most. Especially when opening up about something important. I know it can be kind of intimidating and a bit scary (which is why the option to share your secrets anonymously is there), but my hope for this is for all of us to let go of the things troubling us and find some sort of peace in it by opening up about it. Hopefully everyone will respect that hope for my blog AND yours, too.
Have a question I didn’t answer? Email me!Otherwise I look forward to sharing my own and reading your secrets starting on March 12! Don’t forget to spread the love with the button, too!
blog positivity week details will be sent out this weekend as well.
