Welcome to the Inspire Me Monday Linky Party for February 29, a date that occurs only once every four years during a leap year. Thank you for joining us.
Weekly Wrap Up
On Tuesday, my guest author wrote 25 Tips You Need to Know That Will Make You Blog Differently about how to prepare your blog now in the event you might want to try to monetize it later.
On Saturday, I held my 15th Meet and Greet. I hope you will all come to the blog party if you haven’t already. The party is still in full swing with many new bloggers waiting to meet you.
On Sunday, I explained how Inbound is a site that lets you promote your links. There are 17 Ways Inbound.org Will Make You a Better Blogger.
Last week we had 356 links, four more than the previous week.
I don’t know if people wonder how I pick the winners. I have always made it clear I look for inspirational posts since this is the Inspire Me Monday linky party. With 356 links, I want everyone to know I look at all of them, even posts not on my comment schedule.
This week I picked posts #229 and #355, the second to the last linked. Both had to do with a topic near and dear to my heart, blogging (although all the St. Patrick’s Day recipes really did look wonderful).
#229: I picked Donna Parker’s Blog Your Way, and it was not because she was kind enough to mention me. In her brilliant post, Donna offers important tips for being a more effective blogger. However, in true form, Donna blogged with humor. I believe the Wizard of Oz actually got brought into the post, and Donna found a way to make him relate! I always hear music in my head when at her site. Her words are that powerful, that funny, and that convincing.
#355: Jody Cowan won for telling bloggers what they want to know: How to get 1,000 followers. Jody said her first 1,000 are still on her list!
The post clicked on the most often was Cold Buster Smoothie. Congratulations to the winners!
Although not required, it is considered polite to follow your hostess!
That’s me! I’m Janice!
