How to be selected for Blog of the Month

Hey guys, I’m planning to bring back Blog of the Month. Eventually when more bloggers request to list their blogs on Blog Mommas, and we get back into a routine around here, I will bring back Blog of the Week too.

There are a couple of things you can do in order to be selected for Blog of the Month. Here are a few tips in no particular order:

  • Make sure you are linking to Blog Mommas

The first thing I’ll check is whether or not you’re linking to Blog Mommas. Check your sidebar and make sure people can see your buttons and links. If folks have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the page or can’t find any other pages where your links can be found, it makes things hard.

  • Make sure your blog was added to the directory

Please let me know you’re interested in being a part of Blog Mommas. In my sidebar on the right hand side there is a way for you to e-mail me and let me know. It’s very easy to send me a quick message letting me know you want to be part of Blog Mommas and that you’ve linked to Blog Mommas. Some of you may have more than one blog and that’s fine, I’d be happy to list all of your blogs. Once listed, I will introduce your blog to my readers and you’ll automatically qualify to be selected as Blog of the Month.

  • Invite your blog friends to join in on the fun

Tell your blog friends about Blog Mommas. There are perks to being a part of Blog Mommas and you will discover lots of new blogs to read. Some of my closest friends were made through just networking, reading other blogs, and leaving comments. Eventually we all get to know each other and a sense of community is developed, and new friendships made – for life!

Okay, I’m going to go check my e-mail and see if anyone has written me yet!

I can’t wait to list your blog and start featuring blogs again!!

Cancelled My Google Adsense Account

I just cancelled my Google Adsense Account today! I know – pretty shocking. This is one of the most FREEING things I have done in quite a long time! It’s almost the equivalent of cutting twelve inches of my hair off so I can experience a new hairdo!!! Seriously, I am so HAPPY I cut ties with them and I am NOT looking back.

My Blog Comments Aren't Coming Through

Hello and Happy Spring!

I'm coming to you from my mobile device. It's pretty convenient doing it this way.

I've been reading your blogs, Blog Mommas. For some strange reason I don't think my comments are getting through and I'm not sure why?

I do all my blog reading from my feedly application. I've tried commenting through feedly. I've tried commenting through your main blog pages, and it doesn't seem to be working.

I can't see my comments.

I think I'm doing it wrong.

Maybe commenting from my laptop instead of commenting from my device would work better? I don't know.

I hope I can stick to my device because there are days I don't have time to log into my laptop.

How are you guys doing with leaving comments on blogs? Have you run into technical difficulties? Any idea what the problem might be?
