With so many good bloggers out there helping people, I actually have no idea how Liz decides who to award “Successful and Outstanding Blogger” badges to. I certainly couldn’t among my readers.
I can’t claim to be an active member of her blog community either, even though I have been subscribed to her feed for a while. There is a limit to how many conversations you can keep running at the same time, and whilst you might read someone’s blog, there is that time restraint barrier.
I also tend not to comment on blogs unless I can offer some level of expertise in helping solve a problem, or give a different perspective.
I Almost Missed It!
I am serious about this, and I am not sure of the solution – In Technorati every day I currently wade through about 6 to 10 pages of links. I have not idea how the more busy blogs cope.
I do try to follow up on every trackback, but that doesn’t help with links to my TLD (Top Level Domain).
Yep, I am a S.O.B
Now the hardest thing for me to decide was which colour badge I wanted to use.
I almost went for the aqua or purple
I was a little cheeky and asked Liz if she has one in Black & White, and she emailed one to me.
It will add a little bit more social proof to the sidebar
Meme Overload | Meme Efficiency
Even someone as highly organised as Liz seems to struggle keeping up with the memes she is tagged with, and being so popular I am sure she is tagged a lot more often than I am.
I am well behind on the memes I am tagged with, probably enough for the next month.
Something Liz has come up with is a bit of a time saver, it is just a standard way to link back to the person who tagged you and to show that a post is part of a meme.
It saves you making your own graphic.
Introducing Bloggy Tag
Well it might be a bit of a late introduction if you have already read about Bloggy tag.
That logo works for me, I can stick it on a post and just pump out answers rather than a long winded intro and just quickly tag people at the end.
As this is very much a Lizzy post, I suppose I should also mention that SOBcon07 is little over a week away for anyone interested in attending who needs a gentle reminder.
I will not be attending, but I knows a fair number of my regular readers are going to be speaking there.
