FAB Fridays

I've decided to start up a new project, and hope you will all join me in this endeavor. When I first started this blog, I said I wanted to talk about people, books, and shows that inspire me. So far I have featured a few people, and have also been featured a couple times, which to be honest, COMPLETELY made my day :) Thanks to Melody at 6 Feet Over , and Bea at The Busy Mom Blueprint.

I really enjoy spreading the love and supporting my friends and fellow bloggers. So, I want to make this a weekly project. Every Friday I will feature someone new that has inspired me in some way or another. I love people who are positive, creative, ambitious, and believe in supporting others. We as women, LOVE to help and to encourage. It's in our nature to nurture :) It's what gives us that sense of purpose and fulfillment in life.

I would love it if you all took part in this project, and featured someone new each Friday as well. What goes around, comes around, I truly believe that. Let's embrace one another's gifts and talents, and look at it as an opportunity to learn and to be inspired.

One of my favorite quotes is one from Gordon B. Hinkley

"It is as we serve, as we take time to express interest and concern in someone other than ourselves, that we are more likely to gain a glimpse of who we really are, and what we can ultimately become."

This was the quote I put on my missionary plaque, and it has always been something I TRY to follow.
I already have quite a few women in mind, and I'm excited to introduce them to you one by one.

I'm working on a name, here's what I've come up with so far, which one do you like?
  • Fabulous Female Fridays
  • Fridays Featured Mom
  • Fabulously Flabby Females , joking everyone :)
  • Fertal Female Friday, also joking
  • Fricken Fabulous Featured Female Friday, is that too many "F" words? sorry, tryin to keep this G rated.
So, I was thinking we should call it, "THE TRIPLE "F" PROJECT"

Tonya has designed a new button for this project. So if and when you join in the fun, then you can add this button along with your Featuring Friday posts.

Okay, I came up with a new name for our meme! By the way, I actually had to google the word meme, because I had NO clue what it meant.

Here is the definition: The term Internet meme is a phrase used to describe a catchphrase or concept that spreads quickly from person to person via the Internet.

Anyway, I appreciate all your feedback yesterday and have decided that, in order to avoid attracting dirty old men to this site, I would refrain from using the phrase "triple F". Don't want to disappoint anyone in search for women with (in Myda's terms) "big honkers". Haha, I was laughing so hard though, and thought perhaps I SHOULD keep it, but no, probably better to stick to a more classy name like, F.A.B. FRIDAYS. This stands for, Featuring Ambitious Bombshells. What do you think?
or
  • Fabulous And Beautiful
  • Featuring Aspiring Balancedmoms
  • Featuring Ambitious Babes
  • Featuring Ambitious Babymakers
  • Fricken Awesome Biotches ...... sorry, just had to throw that one in

What an awesome idea!
The Triple F project sounds really fun!
If a woman is a Triple F she deserves to be featured! (LOL! Joking!)

Count me in!

Salt said...

I think this sounds so great. :) And I 100% agree. I never realized what an amazing and supportive community of woman bloggers there was! Until...well 6 months ago when I started my blog.

I'm not a mom yet, but I would love to participate in this sometime!

Oh and I have to tell you, I just watched that YouTube that you told me about and it brought tears to my eyes! (And like...out over my eyes and a little on my face also.) It must have been so scary, but you did it! And your voice is WAY WAY WAY better than mine!

Myda said...

Great minds think alike! Woohoo! I too was going to start featuring people (not just moms) on my blog but I didn't go so far as to think of a name like yours! hehe. I like Triple F but man that sounds like big knockers or something! lol

Danielle said...

What a wonderful idea. I will definitely post the button on my blog. And tripe F sounds good to me :)

Confessions From A Working Mom said...

I LOVE the idea! I will participate, for sure. I can put it in my headline section on my blog, so it's the first thing they see on Friday mornings. Just let me know when you start it, so I don't jump the gun (and spoil the fun for you!).

Aaron [air] said...

I love the idea and I will be participating without a doubt. I think I will call mine "fabulous - friendly - fridays" or something like that....

This will be great to meet some new bloggers out there. I absolutely ♥ and appreciate your way of validating and appreciating others, instead of what so many others choose...competition. I hate that. Drives me insane!

I'm so into the Fab Fridays! I am new to blogging, but I have come to discover so many creative and talented writers out there and I would love the opportunity to tell them so (without appearing like a stalker!) This is a perfect way! I've grabbed the button, I start on Friday!

@Home-Mom said...
