Joys of Technical Difficulties

Being new to blogging, I knew there would be difficulties, but my goodness it didn't seem like it would ever end. My desire is to use this blog as a means of communicating what is happening with Spreading Joy Corporation. The "newsletter" feature on my website isn't very pretty when it is sent out, so after I did some research I came up with this as a solution. Feedburner allows you to sign up via email and anytime I send a new post, it comes to your email inbox with no additional effort on your part.

Feedburner, for the past 2 weeks, did not recognize that I had "enabled" the email service. I tried to sign up for it many time and got an error message. After de-activating and re-activating many time, yesterday for the first time, I was able to register. So now, I feel more comfortable that anyone who wishes to receive updates via email can do so.

Ahhh..so many technical things to learn. Continue to be patient with me as I learn the ins and outs of blogging and the technical aspects that go along with blogging.

IRS update - Just 10 days after my initial posting on August 3rd, 2008, I received a letter from the IRS. Immediately I opened it, wondering what I had messed up on the application. To my complete amazement - it was my Tax Exempt approval letter. Spreading Joy Corporation is now an IRS recognized Non Profit Organization! (how truly great is that!?!) There are so many things that I want to do, so many ways to start Spreading Joy - it is time to get organized and start Spreading Joy!

The Challenge:
Have you visited the website lately? http://www.spreadingjoycorp.com/ There are 2 sections that are designed to help you with ideas on how you can do things for others everyday. The calendar and the 30 Day challenge page will get you started.

The calendar has a different idea posted for everyday. I'm always looking for low cost/no cost ways of Spreading Joy - you can email me any ideas you may have. IF you are new to Spreading Joy the ideas start in July of 2008 and is complete through September. It is so easy to spread joy. Once you start looking for ways, the ideas will just come to you. Thank you for your efforts in spreading joy!

Anything is Possible By Author Unknown

If there was ever a time to dare, to make a difference, to embark on something worth doing, IT IS NOW. Not for any grand cause, necessarily... but for something that tugs at your heart, something that's your inspiration, something that's your dream.
You owe it to yourself to make your days here count. HAVE FUN. DIG DEEP. STRETCH. DREAM BIG.

Know, though, that things worth doing seldom come easy. There will be good days. And there will be bad days. There will be times when you want to turn around, pack it up, and call it quits. Those times tell you that you are pushing yourself, that you are not afraid to learn by trying.

PERSIST. Because with an idea, determination, and the right tools, you can do great things. Let your instincts, your intellect, and your heart, guide you.

TRUST. Believe in the incredible power of the human mind. Of doing something that makes a difference. Of working hard. Of laughing and hoping. Of lazy afternoons. Of lasting friends. Of all the things that will cross your path this year.

The start of something new brings the hope of something great, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE.
