1000 Awesome Things - truly awesome!
Just discovered a truly fabulous website I have to share with you.
1000 Awesome Things is the most fun you can have online and I think I must be the only person on the planet not to have heard about it.
Thank goodness for my morning news addiction, Canada AM, which did an interview with blogger Neil Pasricha on the occasion of his book launch for The Book of (Even More) Awesome. This "instant bestseller" follows close on the heels of The Book of Awesome.
This Neil guy is on a roll. He started the blog in 2008 because his life was in the toilet and he wanted to find a way to be happy about life. The tiny blog has had more than 40 million hits and boasts 14,732 regular readers through Feedburner. That's just crazy!
So what is it that makes 100 Awesome Things so... awesome?
The Vancouver Sun wrote, "Sunny without being saccharine, it's a countdown of life's little joys that reads like a snappy Jerry Seinfeld monologue by way of Maria Von Trapp."
Every day Neil writes about the little things in life that make people happy.
