Introducing Something New

Others bestow awards; I pass out stickers.

 So, You’re a Writer (Blog)
 Seal of Approval

That’s right, ladies and gents. I’ve created my own seal, in lieu of a plaquesqe button, to mark the best and the brightest blogs in our industry. 

That’s thrilling, Carrie! How does it work?

A few times a month, I’ll share and highlight a blog that I feel to be a true asset to our industry. (Does anyone else feel the compulsive need to cross out that, regardless of where and how you’ve used it? Oh, editing, what have you done to us?) *Ahem* The chosen blog might be the work of someone we’re all familiar with—like a power agent—or the work of someone up-and-coming, like a little known writer or book reviewer. You never know!

And you expect me to do what, exactly, with this sticker?
I’ll include the sticker for you (the recipient) to gaze lovingly at post on your own blog—that is, of course, if you’re interested. Examples of use:

  •  A special post, highlight your new “achievement.”
  • Piggybacking another one of your posts. You could even have the image link back to my post as a means of explanation.
  • Coded as a button for your sidebar 

Really, the idea is to share great blogs with my readers and followers, so just have fun with it. If you don’t want to do anything with the sticker, that’s fine too. Just accept the post as a little traffic sent in your direction; you know, a token of my appreciation for your hard work. <3

If you'd like to nominate someone, let me know via my contact form.

The first sticker recipient will be announced this week!

That is one shiny sticker you have there. Definitely worth some goo-goo eyes.

I dig it. Looking forward to some good blog recs!

I like the sticker. It's high time something new went around. I have to read over the instructions to see how it works. It's always great to learn about cool blogs to follow. :) Can we make up an achievement?

Carrie Butler said...

@Laila: Thanks! I'm hoping it'll be helpful to everyone. Sure! :)

I have been trying to flatten the lower right corner for 5 minutes now! It looks so real!

(At least I didn't try a scratch and sniff ;; Poor computer...)

@Patrick - Hah! Thank you very much. :)
