A Modern Philosopher’s Birthday Wish

Happy BirthdayHappy Tuesday, Modern Philosophers!

If I’m reading my birth certificate correctly, today is my birthday.  How cool is that?

Okay, bad choice of words.  It’s -5 degrees outside this morning, so a word like “cool” should not be tossed around lightly.

How awesome is it then that today is my birthday?

I know that I am no longer a child, so a birthday isn’t that big of a deal anymore.  You won’t all be coming to The House on the Hill later for cake, pin the tail on the donkey, and a presentation of gifts to the Birthday Boy.

I’m not discouraging that by any means, I’m just being realistic.

I had a Deep Thought, though, on how you could give this Modern Philosopher a present if you so desired.  You know how much I love to spread the Blog Love, and how important it is for bloggers to support each other.

So how about giving me a birthday present via social media?  Something of a Birthday Blog Share if you wanted to slap a hashtag on it.

For my birthday, do you think you could share a post of mine that you really enjoyed?  Please don’t make it this post, as this is me asking for a present, and not a very good example of my writing talent.

blog-loveJust find one of my posts that really spoke to you and share it on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, or your blog.  That’s simple, right?  You don’t even have to wrap it or figure out how to get it to The House on the Hill.

Maybe you could tell me in the comments section which of my posts you shared?

I think it would be a lot of fun to unwrap those birthday presents in the comments section all day, learn which of my posts really spoke to you, and let the Blog Love keep me warm and toasty on what promises to be another very cold day in Maine.

Happy Tuesday, Modern Philosophers!  Thanks for being so wonderful!

    Ok, I will share your TV debut. Or, Timbo’s debut. The line about taking out others was perfect, I just wish y’all had kept the line about Stephen King.

    Happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday!! I hope you have a fantastic day! I will have to pick a post to share after work as I only have about 2 minutes until I have to leave. It will be hard to pick just one!

  5. Happy Birthday, Austin! Stay warm by snuggling with the kittehs! 😀

  6. Happy Birthday! Have a lovely day!

    It’s my good bloggy friend Austin’s birthday today, and as he lives 5000 miles away I can’t buy him a drink, so here’s a reblog instead! Read, enjoy, follow and share the blog love for him!

    I chose to tweet this link as your birthday present, Austin. Have a great but freezing day, my friend.

    For a birthday present, pick a link from Austin’s blog and send it out via social media. No, not this birthday story … another post of your liking.

  17. rozaliadame says:

    Happy Birthday ^_^
    Your birthday wish shall be granted as well! I will take a browse and see which I think encompasses your character the best.
    Have a great day!

    Hi Suzi! I have just started following your blog the past week or so and I’m really enjoying it! I also enjoy following you on Twitter. I will share one of your blog posts – but I’d like to wait a bit and have read a few more before I do. So, consider the future posting a delayed birthday gift! (grin)

    Happy birthday!

  19. Kate Loveton says:

    Well, Austin – seems I misread and that it is YOUR birthday and not Suzi’s. Lack of caffeine this morning, what can I say? (grin)

    But since I follow you as well, I’m happy to blog one of your posts in the future – so that’s my delayed birthday gift to YOU! 🙂

    Happy birthday!

    Happy Birthday! May the next year of life go awesomely well.

  22. I went to Suzi’s blog to reblog one of her posts on my Blog today, as Tuesday is my Random Thoughts/Reblog day, I saw her reblog of your post and I’ll be delving in to your blog to find just the right post. I’ll reschedule reblogging Suzi’s post to Thursday. 🙂 Sorry Austin, That’s a very windy way of saying, HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Especially for a first comment from a newbie blogger.
