Would you speak for peace? Announcing ‘We Are The World’ Blogfest #WATWB


If you spend a great deal of time on social media you will no doubt at times be overwhelmed by much of the negativity and hate that comes through our streams.  We might not able to stop the negativity but we can change how we react to it. The “We Are the World Blogfest” is our reaction to negativity. We hope to bombard social media with the positive stories that show us the best of humanity! Please read below to see what we’re about! 🙂


Social media and news in recent times has been filled with hate and negativity. Just as you cannot fight darkness, only light lamps, Hate and Negativity cannot be fought. You need to bring Love and Positivity forward instead.
I bring to you the We Are the World Blogfest, along with these fabulous co-hosts:

Belinda Witzenhausen, Carol Walsh,Chrissie Parker, Damyanti Biswas, Emerald Barnes, Eric Lahti, Inderpreet Kaur UppalKate Powell, Lynn Hallbrooks, Mary Giese, Michelle Wallace, Peter Nena, Rich Weatherly, Roshan Radhakrishnan, Simon Falk, Susan Scott, Sylvia Stein, Sylvia McGrath

“We Are the World Blogfest” seeks to promote positive news. There are many cases of love and light out there, stories that show compassion and the resilience of the human spirit. Sharing these stories increases our awareness of hope in our increasingly dark world.
We will link to charities supported by the co-hosts, and you could choose to donate to some of them or add links to local charities you support, so we could all chip in to a good cause if we like.
Let us flood social media with peace and love, and “In Darkness, Be Light.” The first post for We Are The World Blogfest is on the 31st March 2017.

The more, the merrier! 🙂 Hope you will join us!


1. Keep your post to below 500 words, as much as possible.
2. All we ask is you link to a human news story on your blog on the last Friday of each month, one that shows love, humanity, and brotherhood. Something like this news,  about a man who only fosters terminally ill children.
3. Join us on the last Friday of each month in sharing news that warms the cockles of our heart. No story is too big or small, as long as it goes beyond religion and politics, into the core of humanity.
4. Place the WE ARE THE WORLD Badge on your sidebar, and help us spread the word on social media. Tweets, Facebook shares, G+ shares using the #WATWB hashtag through the month most welcome. More Blogfest signups mean more friends, love and light for all of us.
5. We’ll read and comment on each others’ posts, get to know each other better, and hopefully, make or renew some friendships with everyone who signs on as participants in the coming months.
6. To signup, add your link in WE ARE THE WORLD Linky List below.

    1. Hello, Roshan! Thank you so much for joining us and helping to spread positivity via #WATWB. Glad you like it, I have recently made some changes, I appreciate the feedback! 🙂


    1. Thank you! I added my name. Wondering if that’s where I will post my link when the last Friday comes or in the comments on someone’s blog.


    2. That’s great JoAnna, Welcome! On the 31st, we’ll be going through the Linky list you just signed up for and sharing everyone’s post and we ask that all of those joining us do the same. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me on my contact page and I will try to get back to you ASAP! Look forward to reading your post!

  1. Reblogged this on Green Life Blue Water and commented:
    Beginning the last Friday in March and continuing every last Friday of the month, consider sharing a story that spreads the love and lights up the world. I don’t know how long this blogfest will last, but I guess until we see peace and equilibrium restored in the world. Thanks for playing! #WATWB #peace


  2. Love this idea but I’m a little confused, after looking at the “linky” page, as to whether we’re supposed to sign up now with just our blog or wait until we have a specific post put up? (BTW KDKH sent me)
