Happy New Year, Blog Friends!

I’m excited about 2017, aren’t you? It feels good to start fresh in the new year. There are so many possibilities! Quite frankly, I was ready to move on from 2016. If you glance over the right of the page you’ll see I’ve already chosen the featured blog for the month of January. We will build our list up again each month this year. I’ve set up reminders on my personal planner so I don’t forget. I am looking forward to finding and featuring new blogs! Please don’t hesitate to invite your blog friends to check out our directory. You can use the contact form in the sidebar to get in touch!

Where is your link back to Blog Mommas?

A lifestyle blogger who writes about Christian Living and Family recently contacted me to say she was interested in adding her blog to the Blog Mommas directory. I was pretty excited initially because I didn’t think anyone was reading this blog. When I hopped over to check out her blog my heart sank. She wasn’t linking to Blog Mommas at all. How’s a blog directory supposed to work if nobody will link back? If you want to have your blog listed I would LOVE to do that, but you have to link back. When you link back not only are you showing your support for Blog Mommas, but you are supporting all the other blogs participating, too.

How’s that for linky love?

It’s the first day of the month and time to pick another blog to add to our featured blog list over on the sidebar. We’ll start from scratch in January and build our list back up! Meanwhile, please invite all your friends who blog to park at Blog Mommas! I would love to be able to introduce some new blogs. If you’re blowing the dust off your blog and want to have at it again, holler at me! I’d love to re-add your blog to Blog Mommas! Welcome new blogs, too!

Facebook says I’m following more people than I can actually see – why is that?

On my personal facebook page I am following 4 people.

Facebook says I’m following 5 people.

I don’t see 5 people. I only see 4 people.

Who is the 5th person? I can’t see them. Why is that?

How to deal with pesky Twitter spam

All you have to do is block the Twitter culprit.

You can block people who add you to lists for the purpose of advertising, too.

Yep, just block them.

There’s a section within your Twitter settings called “Blocked accounts” – you can access that and unblock the spammer if you don’t want to have a lot of blocked accounts.

When you block someone it will automatically keep them from following you and it will remove you from all of their lists.

When you unblock it’s as if it never happened in the first place.

Try it out and let me know if it works for you.

Will we end up agreeing? Probably not. But...

3. I'm tired...and here's why. I might be the only one who feels this way, but...I feel like in an effort to make this country more tolerant of everything, that we have become an extremely intolerant nation. I have always loved talking to people who have different beliefs than myself....sharing what I think and why I think and then listening to my friends talk about why they disagree.

If we are a body of people that agree on only one thing...well, who wants to be a part of that? Are you voting for a candidate that I'm not? Are you using a bathroom that I'm not? Ok, then...I'm going to make a roast chicken dinner, pour some wine and sit in my garden with you and talk in a way that people do when they lead with love.

Will we end up agreeing? Probably not. But I'm not going to unfriend you on social media or not invite you to my next garden party...instead, I'm going to throw on some super loud Abba music and dance with you until my 50 year old hips can't dance anymore. Because that's what grown up's do.

I'll be featuring a blog soon

Keep your eyes peeled for the new blog I’m adding to “Featured Blogs” in the sidebar. Right now I’ve got 9 blogs featured. I will be adding a new blog this Saturday!

I hope featuring your blogs on the home page of Blog Mommas will help you with new traffic. Who doesn’t love interacting with new readers? I know I do!

I hope you will consider telling all your blog buddies about Blog Mommas. I would like to get back to Blog of the Week, Month, Quarter, and Year.

Right now our directory is at the point where everyone has been featured. Some of you have been featured once, twice, and three times over! That's a log of Blog Featuring.

Please let me know if your blog hasn’t been featured. Also, if you’re linking to Blog Mommas and you’re not listed in the directory please let me know so I can add you.

I’ve decided to Feature Blogs

Featuring Blogs is going to be easy for me and fun for you!

What I’m going to do is dig through the Blog Directory to see who is still active.

If I can easily find a link back to Blog Mommas then you’re in!

I will select a blog to be featured each month.

When your blog is selected I’ll put a link up on the home page!

How cool is that!?
