Interested in a New Blog Ring?
« on: April 18, 2010, 03:01:05 PM »
We came to end of our previous group and have to say that all in all it was very successful.  We had some sellers make some sales and many members got increased hits to their blogs and shops.  I am more than willing to run another ring if there is enough interest!

If you decide that you want to continue featuring our talented group of artists sign up here...but there are a few things to consider before signing up.

-If you sign up you are committing yourself to feature one HAF artists per week for the entire run of the ring.  This is open to any member of the forum no matter where they sell.  I give you all the basic info as far as the name of the featured artists and their blog info and often times their shop info.  Your job is to check out their blog/shop/etc and write up a feature.

-Your next job is to read other members articles!  Leave a comment for the author on each blog.  This increases the exposure for both the featured artist and the bloggers.

-If you can't keep your commitment, please let me know.  I will pull you out of the ring; no hard feelings, I understand that life gets busy (boy, do I ever understand!) and that time gets away from you.  I am only concerned that we had people that signed up and were not participating and then I have to deal with the messages talking about how they didn't think it was fair to feature someone not willing to feature others.  I do comment on all the features and watch which members are participating and which have dropped out but I would rather not have to track people down, and feel bad about messaging people like the blog police  :police:

I will leave this open, and as soon as we have enough people to make it worth while, I will begin a new ring...so watch this section of the forum for the new info.

If you have any questions about how this works, please ask!  The more people that participate, the more fun (and exposure) for everyone!

Kimberly and the members of the blog ring,

I would personally like to continue to do this. I know that I failed several artists along the way by not getting features done on time or in a couple cases at all and I am very sorry for this. I would like the opportunity to redeem myself and try again. We are in the process of moving so the next couple weeks might be hectic but I promise to do my very best. I'd love to see lots of others join in round two so that we can continue to learn about one another.

Best wishes, Kris

Yay, it was fun times! ^-^ Unfortunately, we've been super busy over here, so I'm going to step out, this time around.

You can count me in. Be forwarned though, that I may miss a couple due to pre-op tomorrow and surgery in ten days long awaited on my feet. I will catch them up though, promise.

Ok, I'm caught up to here.

LTD, you are right and I think we will do it how you suggested...my only excuse is that I've never run a ring before and didn't know what I was getting into!

Those that are saying they may miss a week here and there...I understand and others to do!  Missing a week is not a big deal, I (and others) got a little miffed at those that signed up and never returned!

You can make that 10. I will do it again. Before we started, I knew almost nothing about almost everyone. Now I have gotten to know something about some of you. This will give me a chance to learn more.
BTW, if anyone is interested I am interested in trading text links with other members for my blogroll. I know it's off topic but anyone interested can send me a private message. The more the merrier!

Holly of Tuscan Roads said she was interested too. She said it over on the weekly thread in case you missed it.
