I'm starting up a weekly feature!

Okay, I'm really starting to break out of my blogging comfort zone!

I'm going to attempt to start a weekly feature, beginning next Wednesday!

Presenting...





"Welcome to Newbie Wednesday" 

Was I originally going to call it that? No.  Did I find this cute pic on public domain and quickly change the name?  Yes!

I'm a sucker for cute pictures...

Here's how it will work:

Every week, I will be scoping out the decorating/crafting blogosphere and choosing a few (like 3 max) blogs, NEWBIE BLOGS, that I think are cool, neato, snazzy and worth sharing with my peeps.

With their advanced permission of course, I'll be telling you a little about the blogger, as well as showing you what I think is so wonderful about them, whether it be crafts, decorating, witty commentary, or what-not.

Did I really say what-not? Who says that?!

You get a new bloggy friend & a new resource of inspiration and the NEWBIE hopefully gets new followers! WIN-WIN!

(Because NEWBIES just want followers, it's like High School with us!  Okay...with me anyway!)

Now, what constitutes a NEWBIE blog?

Well, I'm going to say it's either a blog that was created in the last 6 months OR one that has less than 50 followers (because sometimes you create a blog and then you don't use it for the 1st 6 months, like yours truly.)



I think this will be a fun way to welcome freshman bloggers to our sick, twisted little world (okay, okay I'm only kidding!)

By the way this will not be a Linky Party (I think I'm going to get a FEW more followers before I attempt another one of those!)

So, stop by next Wednesday to see what wonderful, new blogs I've found and maybe you'll just make a new friend

By the way, if you wouldn't mind, please take the "Newbie" button up towards the top of my page on the left hand side and post it on your fabulous blog.  More people will know about the party, and this "newbie" will be forever grateful!

Thanks for joining in at my blog. They are a nice bunch of people (stalkers). Back at you.
BTW your photo for your new meme is missing from your post. Ooops.
I do love your blog badge and have scooped that for my site.
You are doing a great thing here to showcase the new bloggers. The encouragement they will get from the new visitors and followers will be great.

Sounds fun, even for a non-newbie! The picture is missing - or is it just me?

Kathleen said...

Hey there peeps -- Sorry, I told you I wasn't very techie. I think the problem may have been the size, so I created a smaller button and put that in. Let me know if you can see it now?

Well what a neat idea! Oh, and about that linky thing... Doesn't matter. I have 200 followers and on my Freezer Foods Fridays I'm lucky to get one person to link up. ROFL!!!! That's ok though, it's fun - and exciting when someone does! ok, I'm easily distracted and ramble, what were we talking about? Oh yeah, your idea. Fantastic!

What a great idea! We "newbies" need all the help we can get to get ourselves noticed out here in the vast arena known as Blogland. Now if I can just figure out how to add that button of yours... :) Did I mention, I'm a "brand newbie"? So, even the simplest things are a challenge right now! LOL

Molly said...

What a VERY cool idea! You know all of us newbies are drooling at the chance to be featured one day soon!!! I'm working on adding your button...hmmmm. Let's hope it works! : ) A post will have to do for now!
