Introducing Shout Out Saturdays!

Only half a day from now, we will run our very first of many Shout Out Saturdays! Every Saturday, we will have a blog post dedicated exclusively to new followers of our blog! Shout Outs can be a way to get your name out there and spread the word about your own website, blog or twitter account (if you're looking to add followers), or simply to see your own name in print on the world wide web!

How It Works:

Step 1 - Add yourself as a new follower of our blog by using Google Friend Connect

Step 2 - Leave an entry in the comments section of our Shout Out Saturday prompt post (in this week's case, it is this post) telling us:

a) WHO you are
b) WHAT you're promoting, if anything (can be ONE of the following: a web or blog URL OR a twitter profile*)
c) a ONE OR TWO SENTENCE description of what you're promoting, if you'd like

(You can also just leave your name or alias if you're not promoting anything, and we will still give a Shout Out to you :)

Step 3 - Comments will be accepted up 'til Friday at midnight. Check back on Saturday to see your Shout Out and enjoy perusing some other sites and profiles that have also been mentioned!

Example of an Acceptable Shout Out Comment

(It is first assumed I've just publicly followed the Cloth Diaper Contests blog using Google Friend Connect)

Hi, I've just joined as a follower! My name is Lisa and I can be found at http://clothdiapercontests.blogspot.com. My blog features my new journey deeper into the world of cloth diapers as well as a ton of great cloth diaper contests and giveaways!

* your URL or profile DOES NOT have to be cloth diaper related, but we reserve the right to omit any content that seems offensive, malicious, or spam-filled

The comments section is now open for Shout Out requests! Make sure you follow our blog first! See you all on Saturday ;)

Hello. Kimberlie (aka JLJMommy) from http://theclothexperiment.blogspot.com/. Thanks for the follow and I'm now following you back.
My blog was started as a place to share/link the Cloth Diapering information that I've come across in my research and also a place to share great cloth diaper giveaways. I'm new to the cloth scene but enjoying every minute of it! Thanks for the opportunity to share!
