Nah, we can't be up to Round 9 of the amazing meme of Mrs. Nesbitt, ABC Wednesday! Can we?
Well, by the look of Troy's new logo - thanks, Troy! - I guess we have.
Interesting thing about A, which, unlike some other letters, seems to appear in most every alphabet, and in the beginning, no less:
In Greek, it's alpha:
I know some of you have been waiting to start, or restart, this meme until we got back to A. So, I suppose it's a good a time as any to go over the rules.
Truth is "ABC Wednesday is all about having fun." And we on the team are disinclined to get all legalistic. "Instead we suggest a Netiquette - a voluntary code of conduct - that should provide a comfortable environment for viewers, participants and commenters alike."
So here it is.
1. Post something on your non-commercial blog/webpage having something to do with the letter of the week. Use your imagination. Put a link to ABC Wednesday in your post and/or put up the logo.
2. Come to this site and link the SPECIFIC link to the Linky thing. It'll be available around 4 p.m., Greenwich Mean Time, which is 11 a.m. or noon in the Eastern part of the United States. Check out this conversion tool.
By the SPECIFIC link, we mean http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com/2011/07/number-9-number-9.html rather than http://abcwednesday-mrsnesbitt.blogspot.com
The primary reason is that people will want to visit your post, and the specific link is easier to find, especially over time. We're really interested in easier.
Which segues nicely to...
3. "Try and visit at least 5 other participants...and comment on their posts. The more sites you do visit, the more comments you will probably get." We all want some lovin'. Someone from the ABC Wednesday team will surely come by your site during the week.
WE HATE to take posts down from the Linky thing, we really do. So if you're clearly commercial, PLEASE don't bother. If you don't mention ABC Wednesday at all, we'll take it down, even if your title the piece A is for Aardvark (or whatever); seems only fair that if we're promoting your post, you promote our blog. A bit of quid pro quo, as it were.
Oh, and if you have any questions, problems, feel free to leave a note in the comments.
