Zoinks! Nerdy is the New SEXY!

Zoinks!! It's a funny word. A Scooby-Do word. Specifically, a Shaggy word. AND, it's my Z word. I love it. Congrats to those who participated, and/or finished the A to Z challenge. Hope you had as much fun as I did. 

A few days ago I mentioned I'd reveal my platform - the "thing" I stand for. So without further ado: 

I stand for children/teens/young adults. With this platform I intend to be a crusader for self-esteem, acceptance, tolerance, giving, love. I've chosen this platform because I have children, two of them are teens. The difference between a teen who knows his/her worth, and one who doesn't is the difference between night and day. 

It's also the difference between a child who will bully, and one who will help someone in need. 

Children are our future. And my hope is that I can give them a place to feel safe. To:

I've started a blog with an amazing writer friend, Magan Vernon, called: 

Where TOLERANCE, ACCEPTANCE, SELF-ESTEEM, and GIVING are honored, and discussed. 

Click on this LINK to go over to the page, and follow. We also have a Facebook page. Click HERE to "like" the page. It'd be really appreciated. 

You can find out more information at: Nerdy is the New SEXY!  Blog or on Facebook

I have a large Scooby-Doo facing my door when I come into my apartment. A friendly face to greet me. LOL.

So, that said, of course, I love your Z word.

When a child at school, I always seemed to be the one who said to the bully in the midst of his "fun": 'Hey, pick on somebody your own size!' They would then say, 'You look my size.' And the fun would ensue!

I am adding your linky's to my site. If you think a post from me might help, just let me know, Roland

RaShelle Workman said...

Hey, Roland - I still watch Scooby-Doo (with my kids, of course) *snicker*

Thanks for adding the link's to your site. Super sweet. And I love to talk to you about doing a post. I think that'd be awesome! Email me.

That is an excellent platform. If kids had more self-worth, they wouldn't struggle so much when they are teens.
Hope geeky is sexy as well.

RaShelle Workman said...

Alex - Thanks! And absolutely. Geeky is totally the new sexy as well. =D
