Your Best Foot Forward.

First of all, thank you all SO much for your help in getting the word out about Alabama Bloggers!! I already have my first giveaway lined up (stay tuned later this week), so please keep up the good press, give me some feedback and ideas, and let's together help this site be all that it can be!

Without making it join the Army, of course.

So anyway.

Have you ever had a new visitor come to your site and groan inside and think, "Why did they have to come TODAY?? With THAT post up?? Why couldn't they have come another day, when a better post was up?"



Well, I guess I'm the only overly obsessive-compulsive one around here. Because I do it ALL the time. Which is why I have a section at the very top of my sidebar of my most popular posts, just begging new readers to not just judge me on whatever's at the top of my blog at that moment.

Okay, yes, I need to work on my concern about appearances.

However, I thought it might be a fun way to further get to know each other if we linked in our most favorite post ever.

Of our own, of course - not someone else's.

And if you can't choose, take two linkies - I'm generous like that!

I have people ask me all the time how to link one post into Mister Linky (i.e. a Permalink), so here's a quick lesson: Find the post you want to link in, and then click on the title of it. That should pull up just that ONE post (and all of it's comments). Then, you'll notice at the top of your screen that the web address will be specific - it will have your blog URL, then it will have the specific address of that post. Copy (CTRL-C) the whole thing, and then paste (CTRL-V) it into the second box on Mister Linky below. And be sure and let me know if you have any trouble with it!

And remember - there's no better way to get to know people and to get visitors at your blog than to go to someone else's blog and comment. So be sure to visit some people's favorite posts - and comment!! You never know when you might meet your new bloggy best friend. . .

This was hard for me. Not because I have all these really great posts to pick from...rather, I started getting all crazy critical of what was there.

I almost linked to YOUR "JIB" post, Rachel. LOL! Although I have to say I liked the jeans thing. Wanna go jeans shopping with me?

Okay, I have no idea which post to use for this. I wanted to use a somewhat current post. So I went with a post about our beach trips... since I'll be making my way down South for Memorial Day!!

Oops, Rachel, I posted my main url on here, before I realized there were 2 linkies going. If you could delete that first one, I'll add the right one. Thanks!

OK, since my blog is primarly about decorating on a budget, I've added my Top Posts here, so you can really get an idea of what we talk about over at my blog. I'd love to have all of you come by.

If you haven't linked up and introduced yourself yet, be sure to go here to do so!
