This Badge is for You...

This badge below is a direct link to my post on

 "Starting a New Blog 101"

in hopes of helping others who are thinking about taking the big leap and starting their own blog.


Karen of My Desert Cottage and of Valentine Design was too sweet to create this for all of us to install on our side bar.

Grab it, post it and let's all be angels of blog mercy!


can you see my halo above?


Theresa said...

Let me see... Yep, I see the halo:) It will be so helpful to the new bloggers! HUGS!!!!

Karen said...

Great idea! I'm grabbing me a button . . .

Shouldn't you be packing or something??

Kristen Pare said...

Jodie, thank you so much for stopping by to visit my new little blog! It makes for the warm and fuzzies. Love your info below. Thank you!

Lisa said...

Got me a button.:)

Hi Jodie:
I've added your beautiful button to my sidebar. Thanks for the fabulous post. I'm sure it will be used and appreciated!
Have a great week.

You DO have a halo glowing above your head, Angel Jodie!

Wish I'd seen something like this when I was thinking about getting started--I was so nervous! Really felt like I was jumping into deep water all alone...not for these ladies! Wonderful job, my friend!

I'm skipping happily off to put this new badge on my blog--beautiful job, Karen!

Belle Brocante said...

Oh Jodie! I need help! How do I do that??? Put that on my sidebar??? My copy of "Blogging for Dummies" doesn't explain that!

Unknown said...

Happy to do so Jodie:D

Robin Sanchez said...

Thanks for the button Jodie! Have a great time!

Sheri said...

Hello Fairy Blog Mother! Hee hee -- someone called you that in one of the comments they left for me.

And yes, I see your halo. Oh, and wings. You're getting wings, too!

So I saw that great badge you left for me but umm.... how do I get it on the side of my blog? I see the html, but if I'm not in the notepad and publishing to a server, I have no idea what to do with it!

And thank you for your wonderful comments on my blog, Jodie. But I decided I'm going to visit Karen's tomorrow and get a new background. That brown just won't do anymore. Are you laughing at me, sister? You should be. It's all your fault.

Six in One Hand said...

You are tooo sweet to offer such a helping hand!!!

Posting it on my blog as we speak!

Laissez les bons temps rouler!!!

Julia @ Vintage with Laces said...

Hello Jodie,

I will add this one definitely gonna add this one. I just need to finish something then up it'll go :-)

And yes, I do remember when I started out. Though I wasn't really expecting, still, it was such a nice feeling to have someone com by. It was a surprise . . . a lovely surprise. And I am really blessed to have met beautiful people around blogland and so I am gonna go visit the links you've shared. I do know some of them.

Also, you really managed to combine all of the links and created a story out of it. I really think it's clever and I had fun reading :-)

Have a safe trip!

Perfect - going to grab it too.
Have a wonderful day

Hi Jodie! I've missed all the fun since I was missing in action for a few days too many. Wow! You have really made blogging sound so easy. I still sometimes am trying to get the hang of it all, trying to find time and trying to find direction. I just love all the information that you've provided over these past several posts. Now I wish I had used my name when Gwen FORCED me to set up my own blog. She didn't give me time to think about anything. I was happily drinking a nice cold beer and she's making me think of a name for my blog. Ha! You are such a sweetie! I must visit these new bloggers. How long did it take you to come up with that fantastical little story of all the sweet bloggers who left you comments -- and then all those links. Yowza! I'll be packing Wednesday as we go to Dubai this weekend for the Little League tournament that Zack is in. Have a fantastic time in Savannah. Wishing you many blessings and much love, Tammy
