We need a new name for Mr. Linky. I’m so sick of calling it that. Somebody give me a name and we’ll go with it. For now, “Jim” will do.
How to use Jim. Okay, how to use the blogging tool Jim. Please be nice when using him.
That was just too much fun. Ahem.
Jim is a tool bloggers use that allow other bloggers to easily visit one another. It’s used for many different blogging memes such as the popular Wordless Wednesday. To use Jim the blogging tool, there are a few things you need to make sure you do.
In your body after baby post you must link back to my blog. Be sure to use the words “Mama Notes” and “Body After Baby Challenge.” This is so people can come back here and visit everyone else who is participating in Jim and Body After Baby.
To add your post to Jim, click on the title of your body after baby post and copy that url into Jim. You want to make sure you have it going to the actual body after baby post for that week, not the home page of your blog.
Please make sure you do these things. If a link entered goes to your home page instead of your body after baby post or does not include Mama Notes with a link back here, I will automatically delete your link. This isn’t because I’m mean, it’s just the way Jim works on my blog and every other blog.
Jim will go up with my weekly Body After Baby post on Tuesday. It will remain open until Wednesday evening and then I’ll close it. So, be sure to write your post and link up as soon as you can. This will also allow others to visit you as well!
I plan on having a few weekly giveaways (how many yet to be determined) during this challenge for fun, motivation, and encouragement. By leaving your link each Tuesday you will automatically be entered to win that weeks giveaway.
That’s it! It’s really simple, don’t worry! I’m really looking forward to starting this new challenge with you! We have some good discussions going on over at the ning site
, so be sure to check it out and ask your own diet/fitness questions while you’re there too! You can also grab my new Body After Baby button and put it on your blog if you’d like!
GO TEAM GO!
