I am just tickled pink to have been given the One Lovely Blog by 4 wonderful bloggers:
I am very appreciative that they think my site(s) are worthy of the award–so a big THANK YOU goes out to each one!
The award got me thinking that there are so many fabulous bloggers out there who work very hard to pass along deals to the masses. I know that it takes a lot of time and effort to maintain a blog. Getting readers to your site may be the hardest task and the most frustrating! I have received MANY emails from bloggers asking how to increase their traffic. Now, I am not an expert by any means–I am still a newbie in the blogging world! I Heart Publix is the old man at 7 months old and I Heart Saving Money is the baby at 3 months old Word of mouth plays a critical role but getting recognition from other established sites can be a great way to increase traffic too.
I am so appreciative to everyone who has helped me at my sites! I love the fact that other bloggers and readers take time to email me deals so that I can share them. I honestly do not think that one person can effectively do it all–reporting all the deals requires collaboration and input from MANY sources. I personally feel it is only fair that credit be given to those who help in ANY way!
Part of the One Lovely Blog Award requests that you pass the award on to other bloggers who you feel deserve recognition. I am going to try something different. I would like to add a page to my sites that will list blogs and online services. I am going to try to list the blogs based on category. I am not exactly sure what all the categories will be –I want to see what kind of response I get. I also want to open this up to those of you with an online service to offer. For example–did you know Kerry has an Etsy site and is a seller of vintage itemson Ebay? I would love to be able to give more exposure to those of you who have so much to offer!
If you would like to add your site to the list please email me (iheartpublix @ gmail.com -remove the spaces) and include your site name, site link, brief description, and list the stores you cover (if applicable). I will not list any site that I feel is inappropriate! If you distribute porn or sell guns, etc.. – I will not list it. While I realize there is a market for those things–it is not something I feel comfortable listing. But…if you sell custom clothing or gift baskets, etc…please feel free to pass your info to me!
Ok-I am going to give it a whirl. Please understand that this project may take me some time to get it up and running! I average several hundred emails per day and I still have to determine the best way to make this work–but I think it will be GREAT! I am excited to hear from you guys!
PLEASE EMAIL ME–don’t leave the info in the comments section!!
