I’ve known for awhile that many artisans & handmakers are afraid to approach bloggers to ask for features. I also know, thanks to a well-timed conversation with design guru Brandon Smith, that many bloggers are looking for fresh content. Brandon shares a sentiment that many bloggers share: they want to feature new and emerging talents. It’s great for readership and it’s great for the artisans. So, with that in mind, the Blog Blitz idea came sharply into focus.
It’s simple: when you see a post here on the LAB featuring an artist that you really like, go to your blogs and create your own post about them. All I ask is that you mention that you saw them here on the LAB. A simple linked “H/T to IAMTHELAB.com” at the end of the post will do. ‘H/T’ is ‘hat tip’ and is a way of acknowledging the source for your post. That’s all. I will be building a network of blogs that are want to participate and will add them to this page
With the new and improved Blog Blitz, I think we can really make a difference for handmakers and bloggers alike. Questions? Ask them here.
