I try to keep a schedule on this blog, but the past month or so that’s gone out the window. Boo. More realistic at following her schedule is Maisha at The Disney Beat, which is a smaller new blog you might not have heard of, but it’s a lot of fun! The schedule follows a Wordy Wednesday post, based around certain themed Disney quotes, and a Friday 5-Day post that lists a top 5 of a particular topic, plus Road to RunDisney posts on Mondays. Maisha also posts Disney news when it comes up.
One of the things I like most about The Disney Beat is how UP-beat it is. For instance, she put together a fantastic and inspiring Wordy Wednesday post about the Boston Marathon tragedy, keeping the theme of Wordy Wednesday – a quote from Walt Disney – and respect for the awful events of the Marathon, AND a message of hope and goodwill. The previous week was all about encouragement, and man, I needed it that day. The timing was impeccable. 🙂
The subtitle of the blog name “The Disney Beat” is “in rhythm with all things Disney”, but you know, I think that thinking of it as being “upbeat” is in rhythm with Disney too… after all, Disneyland is the Happiest Place on Earth, and a blog that uses Disney examples to make people happy both in and out of Disney just feels right. It makes me smile and it’s a great way to spend my days, getting a dose of Disney and a good hit of optimism at the same time. Thanks, Maisha, for your great blog!
