link love for bloggers

i have decided to address this issue that lots of people are having problems searching for other bloggers of intrest. the search tab for blogger is insuficiant and a pain truthfully. we all want readers and we all want to know where the good reads are.
         so i am proposing link love for bloggers. i can not take all credit of the idea. love links is a web chain used by the crafters of fb,etsy,artfire,redbubble and so on. the crafty crafters have got the right idea. 
         i was in the help pages and forums for bloggers and noticed all having same issues and disliked how the system works. but the blog itself we like. so we can fix this and make a tab/page for link love.
after making you tab/page describe what link love is and how it works.
leave your address clearly seen and the next person to arrive can leave their link/blog address in comment box.
1.follow the ones before you


2.leave your link to your blog

3.if you do this to harm or spam do not post link. or even engage.

4.have fun and read read read. :) and comment back,it is appreciated.

5. dont forget to follow the blog you are leaving a link in.

6. make a page for linking "link love".
you post on mine with url, i go to yours and friends leave url, making a spider web network that links back to everyone.

starting -http://soultivity.blogspot.com/
 
 
 
 
oh and of course ypou are not expected to fave all, all the time. but this creates a accessable list.
2 new additions to share. i hope you all like these. one is using one of my fave scripts bubbles and tunnel lol. i think it is turning into a series lol.

business card trial

i ordeda small pack of cards from moo.com. they had a promo of 10 free cards so i took them lol. i got the cards today in the mail and opened directly and thought "where should i put these?".
    i was out to pick up mail at box,go to pharmacy. post office isnt the place i thought. but the pharmacy is! the building has both pharmacy and dr offices, the idea was they decorate offices and waiting rooms maybe they could use a new touch of art. never know eather when a personal office or room needs more wall decorating and some one is looking. think wow my art at a busy place and waiting rooms that sounds great.lots of peopel can see.
   my 2nd location on the way home dawned on me. the gas station tha the whole town goes to. the let people post on the wall of selling items,concerts,services ect. so i went there and talked to the manager. i gave her the other half of the cards and told her i was an artist selling prints of cards,canvas,posters ect. she said she be happy to put a card onthe board and the rest behind the counter. that made me vary happy and i thanked her for the 3rd time and left.
     i kept one card for me as a keep sake. the first card with my logo and store name ever printed.  even if you havent sold yet or may never that sure does feal good. i really feal my rewards of my efforts even if i dont have a sale. i have biz cards with my store name, i have post cards and greeting cards with my art on them and my name, a poster and a laminated print. i have seen professional prints of my art. that makes you feal so good and that is the reward. that is your hard work out there. somehting to show for your hard work as well.
       a good thought for everyone, dont feal down and out because it hasnt taken off yet, or you havent made any sales. ther is time yet you are out there in the market it will happen eventually. order your work,make your work, keep a few for you. feal good about it! you worked hard and earned at least that.

blogger is changing

from our server, this was posted today. i am not sure if it applys to everyone getting new url's. i have the regular url of blogspot, hopeing we dont have to change it.

"Three years ago we launched Custom Domains to give users the simplicity of Blogger, the scalability of Google hosting, and the flexibility of hosting your blog at your own URL. Last year's post discussed the advantages of custom domains over FTP and addressed a number of reasons users have continued to use FTP publishing. (If you're interested in reading more about Custom Domains, our Help Center has a good overview of how to use them on your blog.) In evaluating the investment needed to continue supporting FTP, we have decided that we could not justify diverting further engineering resources away from building new features for all users.




For that reason, we are announcing today that we will no longer support FTP publishing in Blogger after March 26, 2010. We realize that this will not necessarily be welcome news for some users, and we are committed to making the transition as seamless as possible. To that end:



We are building a migration tool that will walk users through a migration from their current URL to a Blogger-managed URL (either a Custom Domain or a Blogspot URL) that will be available to all users the week of February 22. This tool will handle redirecting traffic from the old URL to the new URL, and will handle the vast majority of situations.

We will be providing a dedicated blog and help documentation to provide as much information as possible to help guide users through the migration off of FTP.

Blogger team members will also be available to answer questions on the forum, comments on the blog, and in a few scheduled conference calls once the tool is released."

keep watching for more tips

be sure to come back often to the "promoting for everyone" for updates to the list eather i or someone else may have posted. today posted a new addition. application through facebook that links your blog and blog faves to facebook and other app users. over thousands of users in this app.

self promoting for everyone

i thought this might be a good start for all of us to share that are trying to start our own shops or biz.
i have been doing alot of foot work, or should say finger work, to find ways to promote.
it hasn't been easy and has taken all hours of the day to keep track,follow up,post,comment,network,update,and refresh images. and maybe there are others out there are just starting and have no clue just like me lol and hunting the net.
anyone that wants to use the ideas i have used or ad to the list feal free to do so.
for examples i am showing links to all my promoting.

etsy~~great community of sellers and welcoming all about promoting each other with link love to facebook
http://www.etsy.com/shop/soultivity

facebook~~link love to help networking and webbing make your own fan page.
http://www.facebook.com/pages/soultivity/313287672849?v=wall

press release~~i haven't done yet but looking into,a self promoting site that feeds out your advertising.
http://www.free-press-release.com/tools-tips/service.html

oddle~~a vary simple classifieds ads. got views already the first day i posted it.
http://forsale.oodle.com/classifieds/muscatine-ia-area/

myspace~~yes i know not many like it personally. but...it is completely customizable to create your image and promote. code in sale buttons,previews,movie images of your stuff and so much more.
http://www.myspace.com/soultivity

ok now.... to make it easier for you. i spent hours looking for ways to customize myspace. ill give ya some starter sites to get ya on your way.

pimp my profile~~this will custom your background,boxes,and fonts for your page.
http://www.pimp-my-profile.com/generators/myspace2.php
look around in this site there are many gadgets and widgets to use on your page once your done making it.

myspace pimper~~another as the last with widgets and apps.
http://www.myspacepimper.com/generators/

i have found some codes don't work right either with your browser or just in general i don't know.
plug in your codes in the places it instructs, usually in "about me".
*hint* use your enter button 3 or 4 times after codes. this way you know where they spit and can delete later to change or if it don't work.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
a new addition to the list.
i just found another way to network your blog through facebook.
called networkedblogs, it is a application in facebook with literly thousands of users of this app.
this i think will get you out of the loop of sellers into the buyers network.
