Good morning Blogging Meetup! This community has been so heartwarming, and as we collaborate and share we are growing together in this amazing forum you have created. We hope you are connecting and making new friends -I know that we are!
One VERY important guideline needs to be addressed, so please take a moment to read:
Full blog posts with images are not meant for this forum. The idea is that you share commentary and summaries and then link to posts from your own blog so that we may click and visit your site. I’m afraid any posts that include images and are a full-bodied ‘blog post’ – one that would be better suited posted in your individual blog – will be edited down, images removed, and/or removed completely. We will try and replace content for those we edit down with a direct link to your site, where possible, to make sure we direct people to you so don’t be afraid of being dejected here- that is not the intention.
Lots of conversation occurs here and we certainly want to keep it coming! Those will NOT be edited down, please continue to chat amongst the forum. But images are taking up a lot of space and we certainly do not want to crash the site as we eventually reach capacity-so we do need to keep those to a minimum as a general rule of thumb please*.
So, comment, share, and like with others. But link to your blog posts instead of writing them here in the chat. We want to visit your sites, that’s exactly why we’re here.
As always, if you have an idea, a challenge, a special event you’re hosting on your site, let us know and we can spread the word by featuring it here in the Events panel. This site is evolving and you are helping it everyday through your interactions with one another. And, if you haven’t browsed the Blogging Index lately, I encourage you to hop on over- we have a lot of new members to meet and greet. (The categories project is still under-way, I promise. But it IS an undertaking and I appreciate your continued patience).
Lots of love and happy Blogging,
Amanda and Eric
