The reason I wanted a sticky was to announce this wild scheme that's been percolating in my head ever since a buddy of mine asked about the Google Friend Connect list.
First, I'm going to show you how to make a sticky post on Blogger. BeepTheGeek had the easiest instruction on this.
Here are the steps.
- Create a post.
- Publish it.
- Pull the post back to Edit mode and Change the Date to the far future, or however long you want it to stay on top of your other messages.
I will try it on my next post to see if it works.
What? You're going to make a sticky, Maria?
Why, yes I am.
Here's my evil plan for the sticky. Tell me what you think and if you'd like to participate.
The trouble with blogs is that we don't introduce enough of our readers to other readers. You know me. I link a lot. I also make my Followers list public so you can check out other blogs for yourself.
What if we made this a contest? And what if I supplied the PRIZE?
Tomorrow, I will put up a sticky with the details. But here is what I want you to do from now until Friday, 7-2-10.
Tweet or post on your blog or forum that I am looking for blogs to shout-out. All blogs are welcome as long as it's not porn or spamalots.
Email me at mariazannini AT gmail DOT com.
That's all I want you to do right now. Tomorrow, I will post a Sticky with the rest of the details.
The goal of this contest is getting more followers and more eyes on your blog. Spread the word. You have a whole week to retweet and post on the blogosphere to your peeps (and their blogs). If I get an email from you, you are automatically entered in the drawing and the shout-out.
PS If ya loves me, you'll also add yourself as a Follower to this blog, but that isn't necessary to be in the drawing.
Even if you don't want a shout out for your blog, if you think your readers would like a shout out, tell them to email me.
