Disney Blog Hop - I Blog with Integrity!



This weeks theme over at the Babes in Disneyland Blog Hop is 'Integrity'! Lisa from Babes is part of a wonderful blogging trio - The Three Disneyland Moms! Together, they bring the latest news and behind the scenes action from Disneyland Park in California! As well as brilliant Disney tips and info!

They've created the wonderful 'Three Disneyland Moms Pledge' that Disney Bloggers can take to let the world know that they are committed to blogging with honesty, integrity and the very ideals Disney is known for! I'm totally confident that I already do this in my blogging ... so I thought ... why not take the pledge!? :D You can read more about it here!

To me, Blogging with Integrity means making my Blog consistent and fun! I try to make my Blog as fun to read and look at as possible :) But most important of all ... Blogging with Integrity means being yourself. I never compromise myself when writing - I try to tell a story just as I would if I was talking to you face to face. I've been known to 'lol!' quite a lot in my posts :P but that's who I am! :D

Here's what I think is one of the biggest measures of Integrity from a Disney Movie ...


Aladdin Ending from Mitch Mullvain on Vimeo.

To begin with, Aladdin is portrayed as a thief . He may steal - but never with evil intentions - he only steals food to survive. Even so, a thief is normally seen as a bad guy! But what makes Aladdin lovable is his strong moral compass and his Integrity. He hits a few bumps on the way, but in the end he realizes he needs to be himself, and instead of wishing to be a prince again so he can marry Princess Jasmine, he keeps his promise to the Genie and sets him free ... it never fails to give me goosebumps!

 If you're a fellow Disney Blogger ... are you taking the pledge? :) What does Integrity mean to you? :)

Have a Happy Thursday everyone! The weekend's almost here!! :D

Manda, I couldn't have said it better myself! No, really, I couldn't and didn't... So, good thing you said it so well!

I love that you 'lol' through your posts because I find myself lol'ing with you! I think I could totally picture having most of these conversations face to face with you (and hopefully some of those yummy snacks would be there, too) and having lots of fun! Great way to tie that video in; what a moment!

Manda said...
