Today’s Story Time, Interactive Style is going to take a leetle detour. I still want your comments, but for a different reason…
I’m starting a new blog! It may sound crazy, but I think it’s going to help a lot of people. I’m philanthropic like that…
I know! Doesn’t it just sound cool! And the blog is too cute. And there’s even a button you can snag and add to your sidebar!
Here’s the thought process behind Best Posts:
I’ve mentioned before how many blogs I’m subscribed to. It’s almost embarrassing, but not quite. I love reading stories about people’s lives. It’s so hard to find time to visit all of the blogs though everyday. To leave comments on a regular basis is even harder. Then when I add in all of things I’m supposed to be doing guilt sets in. Can I get an amen?
That got me thinking. What if there was a blog that consolidated the best posts each week?!?! Bloggers and readers would win. Readers would get the great content they desire–in one area. Like an über Google Reader. The bloggers get readers who are actually interested in reading the post for what it is, a great post–not just another post in their Reader that they almost “marked as read” without even reading it (guilty as charged).
Doesn’t that sound great!?! Don’t you (please won’t you) want to join in and help me out!?!
Here’s what I’m asking you, my wonderful, fabulous, amazing regular readers to do (and anyone else who stumbles upon this post):
On Friday (tomorrow) decide which post was your best post published during the week. Email me with the link to that post and the link to your blog. I’m going to consolidate all the posts I receive and put them in list form and publish the list Saturday morning.
My peeps, help me get this off the ground! Send me a link to the best post you’ve written this week by Friday afternoon! And if you really have pity on me like me, then grab the button and wear it with pride on your own blog! Thank you kindly!
Now, for last week’s gem. This cat is one “special” cat. He and his brother are truly good cats. They just have little isms that we, as humans, can’t quite get used to. Like how Buzz, the one in the picture, likes to prop himself up against walls. Or like how both of them are wool suckers. Oh no, I’m not making that term up. They both like to “nurse” on fabric. It’s more than a little weird, but not all that uncommon from what I read. Apparently they were weaned too early from their mother. I took the picture just to document how Buzz likes to recline. Little did I know his inner self would shine through. I’m a proud mama…

But I rarely have a “best” of the week. Maybe scattered “best of my almost-9 month career,” but not every week. You know me…Twilight, blah-blah-blah, Jason Statham, blah-blah-blah, I’m southern, blah-blah-blah” and then a whole lot of rambling in between.
I’ll play along…but really…it will be hard for me. Darn you!
I’ll play along too, but I don’t think I have a best post each week either. Sadly, most of my posts are random thoughts here and there with a few pictures thrown in! 🙂
One question that I’ve been wondering for the past couple of days…. what is the Day 10 thingy in your sidebar?
I love, Love, LOVE this idea! I think I’ll probably still read everything I do read now but I will just have one more on my list. Thanks alot! No, but really! Great idea! I’m stealing your button. 🙂
I think this is a great idea!!
I will play with this one. It will be a challenge! Good luck!
I’m in, too! I’ll have to get your button and add it. My best of I already sent you may be one of my best posts ever. 🙂
This sounds like fun! I just emailed in my post (a day early, I know – but there is definitely a hands-down favorite of mine this week)
Also – you’ll have to give me some tips about inserting buttons on my wordpress blog – I can’t seem to make them work!
Hey Vicki – I stumbled upon this blog today and immediately thought of you… it’s all about sewing! She’s got an entire bloglist of sewing blogs. AND… she’s got a link on her site for “Best Comment of the Week”. I instantly thought “Hey, that’s kinda like what Vicki’s doing!”
hugs & smiles,
p.s. my cat’s a wool sucker too – her favorite is afghans!! It is a bit strange, I know.
What a great idea! Sadly I am down to posting maybe 4 times a week…but I will gladly display your button, so any other avid writers that venture my way, can venture your way.
