There's a great blog I read nearly everyday; it's awesome. I love chatting with the girl who writes it; she writes quality posts which clearly take a lot of time, care and attention. Yet - she has 35 or so GFC followers (well when I last looked). I've tried tweeting, mentioning, recommending people read her blog, and maybe it has made a small amount of difference, but the fact remains: this girl has a blog worth reading without the audience she deserves.
Is this where I reveal who she is and why I love her blog so much? No
New Kids on the Blog is! This link up is for more established bloggers (read 100 plus followers) who want to help out a brand new blogger (someone with fewer than 100 followers), without taking sponsorship, favours, or without 'getting' anything in return.
All you need to do is write a post about a smaller blog that you like to read, or recently discovered sharing with the world why they should follow it. (Where possible these shouldn't be your sponsors).
You might want to introduce the blogger, what they blog about, how you found them and highlight favourite posts. Just remember to credit any of their photos and link back to their blog at some point!
1. Follow your host via GFC
2. Display the button in your post (In my sidebar)
3. Link up the post on 2nd July (When the party will go live!)
4. Visit other blogs and help grow these fantastic new additions to our community.
5. Don't forget to let your featured blog know you've written about them!
There's a big BONUS too. When you link up you will earn one entry for your featured blog (not you) to win 50% off a simple blog design package by Tiffany @ TKC Designs
The prize will be drawn and announced on 7th July. The winning blog will have 48 hours to claim the prize before a new winner is announced. No cash alternative will be offered for the discount.
(I reserve the right to remove links that don't feature a new blogger - so please don't link up your own blog or a craft project!)
For taking part - you are beautiful people.
