We Now Have 200 Members!

It took us five months to do it, but we now have our 200th member, with 198 of those having the voting link on their blog. I feel like celebrating!

I hope our Villagers are enjoying the interesting mix of bloggers that have joined our little community. I've tried not to block any type of blog from participation, as long as it met our original requirements. If you know of a blog that you'd like to see join us, feel free to invite them. I'll be glad to check them out. I do go back through the Archives pretty carefully on any blog that applies, and there have been a few otherwise good blogs that have been denied because of old posts. As for our current bloggers, I can't possibly read every post by every Villager, so if you find something offensive, please email me.

Today is the day that the list resets to zero, so don't be surprised when all the visit counts are gone tonight. That gives everyone an even chance at being on that all important front page for the next month. Why is the front page so important, you ask? When anyone votes for any blog, that is the page they are taken to, so those are the blogs they are more likely to click on, if they want to look at some more BLOG VILLAGE blogs.

It has been suggested that there be a way to search for a particular blog on the TopList, and I have passed that suggestion along to the toplist software owners. In the meantime, I would suggest that each of you try to make a habit of clicking on several Villager's blogs as often as you possibly can. Find several you can become a regular reader and poster on, and vote for them often. There are way too many of our Villagers who are only getting votes from me, and that must be very discouraging.

I would like to use this BLOG VILLAGE NEWS blog to feature our Villager's blogs over the coming months. If you are interested, please email me a writeup about yourself and your blog that I can use in a post. I'll use it as the basis of a post and give your blog some exposure.

Wonderful news! 200 blogs! Woo-hoo! Thanks for all your hard work and time you have spent on this. You are the best!

You make me blush, hsien lei and cybercelt! Your appreciation helps to make the work worthwhile. Plus, I'm enjoying having such an interesting group of blogs to read, aren't you?

Dustin said...

I have to echo the comments. Thanks for such a great bunch of sites. I only joined a few days ago, but I've really enjoyed taking a look through many of the sites here. This is a great place!

I'm glad you're enjoying our Villagers' blogs, Dustin. It really is a very good group of blogs, if I do say so myself. I'll have to admit, though, that I like some better than others, and I'm sure you will, too. But that's the nice thing about having such a large number on the TopList. You're bound to find quite a few blogs that you will want to read and comment on every chance you get.

Yes, Thank you DB, for giving the opportunity to have our blog(s) featured. For those of us who have several blogs, do you want a write up on each individual blog or as a group?

Dirty Butter said...

Janey Loree, I really hadn't thought about that, but I think Sheila set a good precedent. Let's keep the posts chatty and bring in information about the blogs as you write. Since you and I, and a few others, have several blogs, I can see where two posts spread out over time would be appropriate. Does that sound reasonable to you?

Sound great to me! I will get you a write up on each blog a.s.a.p. Thank you for this opportunity.
