Annie, with My Life As Annie, tagged me for a new meme I hadn't seen before.

The rules and instructions are below:

It’s very simple. When this is passed on to you, copy the whole thing, skim the list and put a * star beside those that you like. (Check out especially the * starred ones.)
Add the next number (1. 2. 3. 4. 5., etc.) and write your own blogging tip for other bloggers. Try to make your tip general.

After that, tag 10 other people. Link love some friends!

Just think- if 10 people start this, the 10 people pass it onto another 10 people, you have 100 links already!

1. Look, read, and learn. ***-

2. Be, EXCELLENT to each other. ****-

3. Don’t let money change ya! **-

4. Always reply to your comments. ***********-

5. Link liberally — it keeps you and your friends afloat in the Sea of Technorati. ******-

6. Don’t give up - persistence is fertile. ***-

7. Give link credit where credit is due. *********-

8. Pictures say a thousand words and can usually add to any post. ******-

9. Visit all the bloggers that leave comments for you - it’s nice to know who is reading! *******-

10. Make a blogger template unique: change the background colour, or add a background picture to your header. *-

11. Write positively even if the situation is seemingly negative — spread joy and not gloom. You can do it!***-

12. When you find something that interests you, write about it. Sharing yourself with others is one of the best things about blogging.***-

13. Start draft posts to capture ideas for future posts, so you don’t lose track of them.- *

14. Be helpful to new bloggers. Remember when you first started blogging and didn’t know how to post a link? Or was that just me?****-

15. If you have a question about blogging, don’t be shy, go ahead and ask. There are so many bloggers happy to give you help if you need it.**-

16. Remember that blogging is a community - don’t be afraid to comment on the blogs you read. Reach out and make new friends, you’ll be glad you did!*-

17. Try to blog daily, this is the only way to build up a “cyber following”**-

18. Check that box on your profile so your bloggy buddies can reply by email to your comments, it makes life so much easier... and by all means PLEASE make your profile public so when you click on your name it doesn't say profile not available. There's no way to reply to you or visit you when you aren't public!*

19. Be REAL and don't put up a false front. We want to get to know the REAL you.

Here are my 10 love links: Jennifer, Leigh Ann, Ginger, Chris, Bev, Barbara, Karen, Diana, Pea, & Susie.


Did you notice the cute Dutch Shoe on my side bar from my Dutch Friend, GINGER!!!!

Isn't it adorable?

Thank you Ginger, it IS a constant reminder that you are praying for me!!!!

Amber said...

interesting tag, I'm behind on mine and my award too, sorry, I wil thank you and Melodye for it soon. In the meantime I wanted to share something with you I thought you might be interested in, a Haiku contest a friend of mine is having...and look at the prizes! You're a shoe in...or should I say a Dutch shoe in..hehe get it, Ginger's Dutch shoe. (ahem) Okay, not funny...any hope over, I don't know if you write poetry, but as soon as I saw this you were the first person that came to mind.

God Bless,

Crystal said...

OH, my - more to explore! Thanks for sharing this, Susan - I'll have to get back to the links once we are back from Europe. I can only imagine how much catching up I will have to do. And I will miss all of you while I'm away. Take care!

Coach J said...

Ruth said...

I love your advice! You are so real, so your advice is well given.

Myrna said...

All good advice! And some more people to meet, also! Very good meme!

PEA said...

It's the first time I see this meme...the blogging advice is such a great idea!! Will get to it as soon as I can:-) xox

Tammy said...

I've seen this one, but love your advice. It can be challenging for all of us at times to be real, and though perhaps I'm not there 100%, it's something a strive for...and you do it beautifully!

Retha said...

I know someone who says:
Preach what you practice.
This I can say I see you are doing!

Great tag! I had to catch up with you and saw your cross stitch. I had to smile. I love Precious Moments! They are so charming and remind me of Hollie Hobbie. I think I did my last cross stitch project in the 80's, as well! Though, I sometimes think I may pick it back up :).


Karen said...

Thanks for tagging me...I was get around to this shortly :-)

Momma Roar said...

This was a fun meme - I really your advice and how it varied from some of the others!!

Susie said...

Thanks for the tag on this interesting meme. I will do it as soon as I get a few things caught up around here!
