NEW and UNDISCOVERED BLOGGERS: I'll link you!

** Hey please come vote for this at SK*RT to get the word out! **


You know what? There are new bloggers out there. I know! NEWBIES.

What's more...there are undiscovered bloggers, untapped wells of talent.

But we don't know about you.

I know, some people are shy, not really joiner types, don't prefer blog blasts or carnivals and so forth.

So tell you what: I'll try to create a link list with some regularity. All you have to do is comment and let me know how to find you (aka paste in your link). Write a brief description of your blog, you know a couple of sentences a la "Hi I'm a mommyblogger from Detroit and I have two preschoolers who are very loud and creative, all funny stories on my blog!" or "I'm so deep I make Julie look shallow. If you wish you could have hung with Plato, come by my blog." or "I'm a guy who likes to talk about motorcycles." or "My blog is all about space exploration."

And I'll link you. I'll even do my level best to come and comment at your blog.

So if you have a site to promote, send me your deets and I'll do what I can.

**NO FOR PROFIT/SALES, FEE-BASED, SOLICITATION or SPAMMER type sites though. Sorry dudes. That's a business and marketing costs. This is for personal blogs.**

That's all. No fee, no strings.

Great idea! Also with NaBloPoMo coming up in a few short days, that is also a way to get to know some new bloggers.

I like your idea though. A little less crowded. I'll look forward to reading the new folks.

Thanks! I read your comment on the blog about Oprah's thyroid show. I think environmental contaminants are probably getting to me, too.
Fantastic idea! Not that I need anymore blogs in my Bloglines but it would be a shame to miss out on the next great blog.
Kyla said…
That's a great idea!

And are there really people who exist that make YOU look shallow? I'd have to see it to believe it.
Julie Pippert said…
Thanks guys! I just hope newbies and undiscovereds read this! And reply!

Chani, I challenged myself to NaBloPoMo or whatever this year and am quivering in my boots. Why? Why would I? I read 8 billion blogs and post pretty much daily already.

Kyla, dude, I giggle regularly at your town's mayor's name. Seriously. I am total gutter, babee. ;)

Thank you for stopping by my little blog.

I don't know if I am a newbie or not? I have been blogging since Jan.
Julie Pippert said…
Blogversary, newbie, newish or undiscovered counts! So sign yourself up! Get free link love.
You amaze me with all your reading, writing, reviewing, blog visits and now this promotion for newbies.

Have you found some wormhole through the space/time continuum that allows you to do all of this that we should know about? If so, you must share this secret. ;-)

you're the best, love.

What a great blog citizen you are! If there is anything I can do to help, you know where I am.
Cool idea.

Comment here? Post my links here? Okay. My husband pointed you out to me. I have been blogging since June of 2006. First at Spaces, now mainly on my .Mac site though I simil-post at blogger too. I started blogging as a way to cope with my first husband's death in Jan.'06 and went public in Jan of this year when I felt that I had something to share. It's mainly about my journey. Caregiver to widow to new love to remarriage to Immigrant to Canada.

Question? How do you copyright your blog pieces?
Thanks1

Wonderful idea, J! Of course, I need new blogs in my Bloglines like I need a hole in my head right now, but how about I let you screen them for me and then I follow you around like a lemming? Work for you?
Amie Adams said…
This is such a great idea. And of course, I'll continue to keep checking back for new folks. This is so nice of you!!
Jen said…
It always amazes me how many awesome bloggers are really out there. And I've only been "out there" for seven months.

You're awesome to do this.

Love this idea, Julie.
You're out to make my Bloglines even more daunting, aren't you?!

Link away! I love reading new people.

Great idea. Super. And by the way, I got a major kick out of your comment on my blog today. Seriously. Your comment was like my phone messages -- I just can't stop myself. : ) But really, I love the comments and wish more folks would step up and leave me little messages and links. I've got a readership of lurkers, that's for sure. Non-bloggers, mostly.
Thank you, Julie, that is a very generous thought. Just like I've found the blogosphere to be!

Well, I will add my blog to the list. I write about my life, kids, family, religion, politics and my various passion, which change with the season.

I chose the name blogversary, because I like new words and it was easy for me to remember.

I'm not exactly new, but I'm still way uner the radar. I'm a 42 year old newlywed (for the first time) learning to live with stepchildren, Houston, and hoping my husband will keep me from being the crazy lady with cats.
the dragonfly said…
I'm new! :) I'm a stay at home mommy, an army wife, and a misplaced American living in Germany. I blog about being a mommy...and well, whatever else I feel like blogging about. Trying to figure it out still, actually...

I was a personal trainer before having kids, so I've started a new blog about getting back into (or staying) in shape while being a parent.

Please stop by sometime and check it out. Thanks!

Thanks for being so generous! I found you via my friend, Catherine, at Everyday Life as Lyric Poetry. I just started my blog last month after her constant nagging for me to do it. I'm a SAHM of two precocious little boys. My blog is a little of everything, funny kid stories, football, the South, spiritual meditations, book reviews...whatever is on my mind. I was an English major once upon a time, so I just like to write. Thanks!

Hi and thanks for stopping by my blog :) I'd love to be on your list too though I've been blogging for a year now and might not exactly be considered a newbie...

I'm a Norwegian girl married to an Italian guy and we live in France. Normally I rant on about everyday stuff and sometimes it might just be interesting too.

I just stumbled onto your site and thought I'd throw my name into the ring. I'm a SAHM, big city girl now living the small town life with two kids (4 and 2). My blog is about kids and family life, plus a Thursday 13 when I can get my head around a new topic.

Thanks for linking us newbies to the big bad blogging world.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Quorum

After being confronted with written evidence, Julie admits that she is a total attention whore. In some things, in some ways, sometimes I look outward for validation of my worth and existence. I admit it. It's my weak spot, my vanity spot . If you say I am clever, comment on a post, offer me an award, mention me on your blog, reply to a comment I left on your blog, or in any way flatter me as a writer...I am hopelessly, slavishly devoted to you. I will probably even add you to my blogroll just so everyone can see the list of all the cool kids who actually like me . The girl, she knows she is vain in this regard , but after much vanity discussion and navel-gazing , she has decided to love herself anyway, as she is (ironically) and will keep searching for (1) internal validation and (2) her first person . Until I reach a better point of self-actualization, though, may I just say that this week you people have been better than prozac and chocolate (together, with a side of whi

In defense of vanity...I think

Do you have one of those issues where you argue with yourself? Where you just aren't sure what you actually think because there are so many messages and opinions on the topic around you? I have more than one like this. However, there is one topic that has been struggling to the top of my mind recently: vanity and perceived vanity. Can vanity be a good thing? Vanity has historically been truly reviled. Vanity is number seven of the Seven Deadly Sins. It's the doppleganger of number seven on the Seven Holy Virtues list: humility. There are many moralistic tales of how vanity makes you evil and brings about a spectacular downfall. Consider the lady who bathed in the blood of virgins to maintain her youth. Google Borgia+vanity and find plenty. The Brothers Grimm and Disney got in on the act too. The Disney message seems to be: the truly beautiful don't need to be vain. They are just naturally eye-catchingly gorgeous. And they are all gorgeous. Show me the Reubenesque Pr

Is your name yours? How your name affects your success...

Made by Andrea Micheloni Not too long ago I read What's in a name? by Veronica Mitchell. She'd read the NPR/USA Today article, Blame it on your name , that shared new research results: "a preference for our own names and initials — the 'name-letter effect' — can have some negative consequences." Veronica's post and that article got me thinking about names, and their importance. Changing to my husband’s name and shedding my maiden name was no love lost for me. By the time we married, I’d have gladly married any other name just for a change. My maiden name was a trial; I was sick of spelling it, pronouncing it, explaining it, and dealing with the thoughtless rude comments about it. My sister and I dreamed and planned for the day we could shed that name. So I wonder, sometimes, whether I adequately considered what a name change would actually mean. Heritage and genealogy matter to me and my maiden name reflected a great deal of familial history. Histo
