So mime and I have been thinking…(dangerous, right?) It’s holidays and mime is home from school and I’m always itching to try something new. So we put our heads together and started considering…
We’d like to host a link-up.
And we’d like your opinion.
We have a little poll on our sidebar (it’s below the blog button list; a little lower then I wanted, but I’m still figuring out all the technical side of blogging). So you can vote if you’d like!
But first. What kind of link-ups were we considering?
Our first idea (because, yes, there’s two of us, so we usually come up with multiple ideas):
Once a week, we could hold a Streams of Consciousness link-up.
What’s “Streams of Consciousness”? It’s a 5-minute brain-dump. You set a timer for five minutes and just write whatever comes to your fingers. No editing allowed.
You could choose a topic. Or you could use the prompt we’d host.
It’s a neat idea that we’ve seen a few blogs do before. It’s quick. It’s easy. And best of all — it’s fun!
Our second idea:
Once a month, we could hold a Book Review link-up.
You link-up a favourite book review you did that month and share what you’re reading. The linky would be open all month.
Our third idea:
We do both!!
So what do you think? First idea? Second idea? Third? Would you be interested in participating? You can reply in a comment if you’d like, or slip over to our poll and add your preference.
Link-ups are a great way to meet new bloggers. They usually generate fun, new ideas to post about. And, best of all, they can create more traffic to your blog! As hosts, mime and I would plan on visiting everyone on the linky and leaving comments.
So, thoughts anyone??
PS A special welcome and thank you to our newest followers!! We’re always very (and I mean very) excited when someone follows our blog. We love having you here!
