Blog Gems - Air your Archives #10


Button HTML


How many posts do you have languishing in your archives? Great posts that will never be dusted off and brought out to breathe again! Maybe you created fabulous content before you had lots of followers, or maybe you have been blogging for years and your current followers haven't seen your older material.

I have a plan.

Blog Gems - Air Your Archives is a forthnighly linky list where I will give a prompt and you select a post from your archives that fits the prompt. You do not have to create content for the prompt, unless you want to. All you have to do is copy and paste the url of the post into the linky list. Voila, an old post gets a second shot!

To take part:

1. Follow my blog to get future Blog Gem posting information and linkys.

2. Grab the Blog Gem button and place it on your sidebar (html code here or above)

Putting the button on your blog is not a dealbreaker, some people just don't like doing it and I have no problem with that at all. What I will say is that something like this can't be successful without 'word of mouth' so I would appreciate if you could find another way to let people know that this is available and they are welcome to join in.

3. Enter your link.

4. Read and comment on the submissions of the two blogs posted before you on the linky list. (Please!)

5. Help me spread the word by telling your blogging friends, either by tweeting this or blogging about your entry.

This week is all about happy thoughts, because I need 'happy' at the moment. Anything happy, funny or heart warming will do, your choice!


Broad interpretations of the prompt are encouraged!


For any newer bloggers don't worry if you have to link up posts that you have linked up before, it is very unlikely that you will end up with the same readers as last time so continue to join in and have fun. Many, many thanks to those of you that blog about Blog Gems, I really appreciate the links and help getting the meme 'out there'.

A quick update on HRH, we are still in hospital but hope to be out midweek, it has been 10 days now. We only have the physiotherapist and rheumatologist to see and a return visit from the neurologist. So far all tests have been clear but many more results due in over the next two days. Unless these tests show up something they are going with 'irritable hip'. He is can stand up now, but his little legs shake with the effort and walking is just too much of a struggle for him. But still, being able to stand at all is an improvement!




       


Allison at Life in a Pink Fibro and I have gotten together to generate some cross-hemisphere linky love. Allison runs Weekend Rewind every weekend and is also based on posting up your favourite oldies. It is one of the friendliest bloghops I have ever taken part in! Her linky is closed now, but will be open again next weekend. Remember to go have a look!

Michelle at Mummy from the Heart has started a lovely new meme called Reasons to be Cheerful, have a look.

Unbelievable! I am second! I was just wondering how you are and you tweet blog gems is open again.

I think my entry is heartwarming - one of my blog carnivals titled: "Childhood Expressions".

Thanks for gathering these posts again, Jen, this fortnight (a required word in every comment). ;)

If this doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will. And I hope things start looking up for you soon. Dying to know what the rheumatologist said, and if they did a brain scan. Updates, soon, please!

Don't know if you ever read this old post, hope it realy does help make you happy Jen!

And I am better late than never once again this week. And just realized that I never left comments for the two above me last time so am going to do that now. Before Lynn yells at me, she hates when people don't follow the directions!!!
