FlogYoBlog Friday- The Karma Edition.

by Lori Dwyer on August 20, 2010 · 14 comments

Mushi mushi,

There’s been a bit of chatter on the InterWebs the last week or so about people who are.. well… let’s call them Memeaphiles. People who link and run, without feeling the community spirit and feeding the Follow list and comment box of others.

Now, I’d hate to think any of my FYBFer’s were responsible for this kind of behavior
. Sorry, I had to strike that whole sentence. I really do sound a bit too much like my mother. She’s a school teacher, did you guess that?

Whatever. I think you know where I’m going with this. Don’t make me instate one of those silly rules where you have to comment on every second blog of the six  before you, or something like that. No one expects you to comment when you have nothing to add, or Follow blogs that just don’t tickle your pickle.

But, please, share the comment and clicky love around. Have a hop through the blog hop. As the name suggests, that’ what it’s good for. You will find some super cool, funny, moving, competition-entering good posts, I promise you that. Or your money back. Or a lifetime of jellybeans Or something.

There’s even a whole plethora of different memes and linkies and hops out there- Friday really is the day for it. Is it because Friday, Follow and fun go so very well together? Entirely possible. Go, my children, see what is beyond yonder purple hills. Just remember y’all come back for FYBF, ya hear?

Leaky karma. Yuhuh. From here. Stealing pictures is bad karma too, mmkay?

OK, enough of my waffling. Go on, get your link on. Follow the rules. Just remember- it’s called karma, baby, and it goes around.

The New Rules (which are kinda almost pretty much the same as the Old Rules)
  1. Follow my blog. (*ahem* *cough* My Blog. Me me me. Me me. You get the picture.)
  2. Grab B‘s bubbly button- she is the FYBF inventor extraordinaire- and post it on your sidebar.
  3. Link your First Name and/or Blog Name and URL of your linked post (not your homepage) below. 
  4. Add a short description (max of 125 chars). It could be a description of yourself, your blog or a teaser to your latest post.
  5. Follow at least 1 linkyer/blogger (Be nice and spread the love).
  6. The list will be open for linkyers on Fridays (and for the foreigners Friday as well).
  7. A new and fresh link list will open  every  Friday. And you will have to link up AGAIN. The previous link list   does not carry over to the following week.
  8. And lastly, have lotsa fun. I mean it. If I  detect anyone not totally loving the awesomeness, I will bump you off  the linky list. (Joking) (Kinda).

Hi there,

New follower here. Didn't link up with this post, but found your blog hop from another blog hopper. Just thought I would pay you a visit…I will definitely take part in this blog hop next week when I have more time to hop. :)

Please stop by for a visit anytime you get a moment.

Thanks, Marie

Tickle. Your. Pickle. That is AWESOME! Must use that!!

Lori, I'd love to clicky click my way through the list, but it's way too long for a slow reader like me on dial-up. Other blogs have this flog your blog thing too, and in the beginning I did try to get through a list or two but I just can't be reading here 36 hours a day.

Pleased to meet you! I'm new this week, but I *love* blog hops. Will probably click a half dozen today, then skip back over the weekend if I've time for more. :-)

I love a good gander at the other blogs on this meme. It is such fun to see what people are posting about. Thanks for hosting!

It IS like a bustling pub! That is why it's so wonderful – good analogy, Maxabella.

I try and read as many as I can (and always attempt comment on whatever I read/whomever I visit) and I follow those that are up my alley.

Amen sistah, Amen.; )

Hi Lori – people who 'dump and run' are just missing out on the lovely 'get together' that is FYBF. I think FYBF is the nicest linky of the bunch… like a bustling pub full of terrific people to talk to. Have a happy Friyay, love and thanks for hosting! x

Hi Shelley- have a look at this one. It's gots the instructions for WordPress- not sure if anyone has successfully done it yet or not? Let me know if you're the first! hehe ;)

Hey lovely – I have given friday flowers the flick in favour of floggin this week…..too many effs in that I think. Haha. xx


Michelle August 20, 2010 at 7:29 am

Hey Lori. I tend to read about 2 new blogs from the hop each week and I have found some super fab ones. In fact many of the UK blogs I used to read are suffering as there are far too many great ones from down under! lol

Hope you are feeling a lot better this week.

Happy FYBF! Just wondering again if anybody knows how to put the linky link into WordPress? I've tried every week in different ways and still can't figure it out. It sucks not being a tech head! Thanks muchly…Shelley. xox
