Some Blog Love

This month a few bloggers (with truly delightful blogs) were rather generous with their ad space, and it was the first time that I submitted a Little Luck Tree button to be posted on a wall. I loved each concept, especially as my blog grows and I learn more about this bright and intricate little world.

I thought I'd share these with you.

First, many of you might know that Leigh-Ann is celebrating the 5-year anniversary of Freckled Nest, so she offered free ad space for the month of June (welcome to everyone who has popped over from there!). She had almost 200 participants and has been featuring them in sets of 12 each night.
I've used this as an opportunity to check out bloggers that I wouldn't have otherwise been exposed to. As a result, I have found so many great new blogs, just by clicking on new buttons (check out this post for an example!).

Lesley Myrick wrote a great post about why she's mixing up her sponsor space this summer with free buttons. She examined her reasons behind hosting ads and the philosophy of seeking followers.

Another example comes from Tonia at The Gunny Sack, who is working with bloggers to help promote each other.

These women have helped introduce me to the next level of self-promotion, which has been so helpful for me as a new blogger. I also have a greater appreciation for how easy it is to give back to bloggers just by clicking on buttons in sidebars.

So thank you again to Leigh-Ann, Lesley, and Tonia--and go click away, my friends!
