i am totally excited to embrace some geekness this week - all for the sake of my blog!!
i am so NOT a geek. a dork, maybe. a geek? no. but this little challenge has ended up to be one of my favorites!! how excited am i to do an spt post that is actually taking spt to a whole new level?!?
i've been trying to find time the past few weeks to add about 10 new bloggers to the "image consultant" sidebar. it's just one of those tasks that gets pushed aside and pushed aside. and a recap? forget about it this time of year. it's all i can do to click through all of the links to see who's updated for spt.
one new blogger i've connected with this week is jen, who has taken on the RAK challenge. (kristi, maybe you should consider hooking me up with jen's blog a RAK on your part!!) anyway, jen has this totally cool link on her blog to blogging basics 101, which just might become my own personal geek support system! it's got answers to tons of pesky questions!
at blogging basics 101, i found out that spt is actually a *carnival* (points for learning a new blogging term!) according to the site, when you are hosting a carnival you are inviting people to write on a specific topic. you give them the topic, which day they need to post the blog entry on that topic, then ask them to come back to your site and submit their link so everyone can see what everyone else wrote.
even better (more thanks, jen) they gave a shout out to this great thing called *mr. linky.* (more points for learning a cool new blogging tool!) how perfect that this spt will be the premier of *mr. linky* on amuse-bouche! i am swelling with geekness!!
so go ahead. get your geek on and post your spt link right here!! don't forget to use the permalink for your spt post. (as always, comments ARE welcome at any time, too!)
