Oh dear. Can we have a thread in Bloggers topic that doesn't turn into a bun fight.
Ok, as far as I have understood the "rules" of the blogger topic/network:
You can apply to join the Network, give it a go even if your blog is quite new. You might not be accepted until you have shown that you are going to be posting stuff that doesn't go against MN rules, but why not apply anyway? It can take a couple of weeks to go through, so you can blog away happily until then.
The forum part (this topic) is for bloggers to discuss their blogs, share new posts and ask for advice. Not for promoting other blogs (such as those selling things) but for sharing amongst ourselves.
I presume that MNHQ would prefer that bloggers who post on here to be members of the Network (and tbh, why wouldn't you want to be, as it is good exposure for your blog).
It is open for everyone because some people don't actually blog but like to read blogs, and it is a good place to find other bloggers. And because if you close it off to MN bloggers, then prospective new bloggers won't find it.
Good for you. Do a link to your blog cause I am nosy while you wait.
I don't think that linking to a blog on Blogger Network is bad, if you say, "hi, I have applied to join, I have been writing my blog for x years and it is here..." perhaps with a summary of what it is about.
Mind if I barge in on this thread too then? I've just applied to join. <bites nails nervously> Only got three posts up so far though (it took me a while to dig out the scanner and figure out how it worked!).
This is me. Any feedback would be welcome. I'm a bit clueless about blogging really.
Lovely blog, Peppermint. And such wonderful illustrations. Glad to hear that your DD is doing well and am crossing fingers, and pressing thumbs (German version of crossing fingers) that the next scan shows everything is fine.
Peppermint, just taken a look at yours and I LOVE it. I am no good at drawing at all but your blog makes me feel in awe of your skill but also makes it accessible enough (being about everyday life) to want to try to draw something IYSWIM.
Hi! I've just been blogging these past couple of months and I'm loving it! Would appreciate any feedback/guidance/tips as i think it's a little all over the place! you can find me at Number Five shuvvies.blogspot.com
looking forward to meeting you cos i think that's the best part of all this blogging malarkey!
My blog is about what it's like being married to the military when you are a pacifist and a feminist. They say love is blind! It is a wholly incompatible marriage which makes for challenging living but lively debate always.
I have been blogging for 18 months now.
I hope you enjoy it. I would love your feedback so please comment.
I know I've already been posting updates in the latest posts thread, but I've now officially been accepted into the Bloggers Network, yayyy!! I blog here and my blog mainly focusses on cooking and recipes.
