Friends Don’t Let Friends Waste Content!

After my hell month of May, I've come to realize that this summer will be bringing even more weeks of insanity where I barely have time to brush my teeth, much less write a blog post (and frankly, if I choose writing a post over brushing my teeth I need to get my priorities straight).

It's summer! The kids will be home, I'm still consulting and looking for a job at the same time, and family will be coming in and out of town all summer. There's day camp and other activities to deal with. So what's a blogger to do when life gets in the way of her and her laptop? Tracee Sioux of The Girl Revolution has come up with a wonderful solution. A whole summer of link love!

...what if bloggers didn’t waste all our fantastic content? What if we spend the summer copy and pasting our bloggy friends’ content on our blogs? The benefits include...

- We expose our readers to our own fave blogs, passions & friends.
- Our readers get new material all summer long.
- We get new eyes for our blogs by being featured on other blogs.
- We get links that up our rankings.
- Google still likes us for frequent posting.
- We get to spend our summer with kids, friends or on other projects.
We get to read more blogs
- We get to re-juice. Writers need to re-juice.

The key is simple and easy for everyone. I’m talking about a summer of copy and pasting people. Copyright rules apply, links and attribution MUST be included in any story.

How dang easy is that? Well, I'm down. Get the details of how this Summer of Link Love works on Tracee's blog... and let's start sharing!

That's a great idea. I definitely plan on blogging less/enjoying the summer to the fullest!

That's the ticket. And with nice weather FINALLY coming this weekend, I will be hitting the beach hard

I'm in for sure. Sitting at SFO waiting to board an outbound to the Rockies for a family fandango in fact, and just checked my sidebar and the badge has been posted!!! So grab-n-go and I'll do the same ! Long overdue concept... Yay!
