It was a quiet New Year. The Bloke and I, true to form, completely overdid it on the food and felt sick, so after watching Man of Steel we got bored and went to bed long before the fireworks and the chimes of Big Ben.
As a result I woke up quite early this morning, and as usual logged into the blog. It struck me just how much of a mess it is in – it needs a bit of a revamp and Christmas has meant that I haven’t been as motivated to revisit, edit and/or delete old posts, so I’ve decided that this is a big task for January.
However, I’ve left my main task as a surprise. I was originally going to do this in December, but instead I have turned it into a January introduction, as this is the point where thousands of new bloggers arrive and are looking to meet new people.
So, during every single day in January I will be promoting members of the WordPress community by reblogging a post from their blog. At the end of January all those featured will then be placed on a permanent page in my menu as ‘Top Bloggers to Follow in 2016’ for the rest of the year. And the best thing is? There’s only one blogger who knows about it – the rest have no idea – and they won’t know until their reblog appears. With that they will be given a badge to display on their blog if they so choose… Hopefully, they will gain lots of new followers, their traffic will increase and I get to share the blog love, which I always enjoy!
It isn’t much I know, but it’s a little thank you to so many who have given so much support during the last year in particular, to share blogs that I thoroughly enjoy and the opportunity for everyone to discover a whole plethora of fantastic blogs!
Happy New Year folks! Happy Blogging!
