Happy Valentine’s Day!
This week is all about laughter and appreciation, which means it’s time for some “Pimp or Promote” magic here at More Cowbell!
I’m taking a page out of Chuck Wendig’s book once again and throwing open the doors of the comments section for you guys to ring your cowbell! (Chuck makes people ring once for themselves and once for others, which I think is a grand idea).
For those who are new at this…Pimp and Promote means you:
1. Promote: share one thing that you’re proud of, whether it’s a new book, an idea or a blog.
2. Pimp: Do the same for someone else whose work has lit you on fire this week.
We all “Oooo” and”Ahhhh” at your awesomeness down in the comments section. I can’t wait to hear about what’s exciting in your life today.
To start this fiesta off right, I’m going to:
PIMP OUT…my Top 6 Commenters over the last several weeks:
Who’s Shaking Their Cowbell the hardest?
Gloria Richard – Check out her “Spatchock” post – there’s plenty there to make you laugh.
K.B. Owen – Kathy’s got a grand new look and plenty o’ fun stuff to keep you entertained.
Natalie Hartford – Nat’s on a blog break right now (yes, I’m having withdrawals) but you can still visit with her on Facebook.
Pauline Baird Jones – since Pauline just became a grandma this week (YAY!), I thought you’d like this post where she talks about what kind of grandma she plans to be.
Kristy K. James is always good for stimulating conversation (IYKWIM) but did you know she lives in a fun tiny area of Michigan?
Lisa Hall-Wilson – Lisa always has good stuff at her blog, but this one on remembering the ‘good stuff’ is a stand-out read.
I hope you click on those links – these are stellar peeps and great writers.
As far as my promote side of the fence goes…I choose WANACon. I gave y’all deets last week about the writing conference where you’re encouraged to attend in your pajamas. At $125 for two days of high-caliber speakers, it’s a smokin’ deal.
I offered up my first free LinkedIn profile analysis and the winner is Lisa Hall-Wilson (you see the riches that unfold when you comment on blogs?)!!
I’ll be giving out another LinkedIn profile analysis on Kristen Lamb’s blog tomorrow so be sure to tune in! If you’ve never heard of Kristen before, I promise you are missing out. Click that link and experience the Social Media Jedi in action.
OK, my friends, you know the drill.
You. Comments. Go…Pimp and Promote!!
