Support your favorite bloggers

I'm a firm believer in the fact that we, as a community, need to support each other in whatever way we can. We can offer advise, tell others to stop by and say hi, or we can come right out and tell the world about our favorite bloggers.

As most of you know, I do a lot of work with super-blogger Garry Conn. This man is a wealth of information, and is turning out to be a wonderful mentor. I strongly recommend that everyone visit his site. He offers great tips on blogging, creates some very nice headers for wordpress blogs, and is currently running a site support program for his fellow bloggers.

The site support program is relatively simple. For a small fee of $5 per month, you can have your MyBlogLog or BlogCatalog avatar posted on the sidebar of his blog, with a link back to your site. The best part about it is that Garry's giving the first month out for free. There is no contract to sign, no certain time line to follow, and you can opt out at any given moment. His site currently holds a PR 4, and hundreds of people visit his site daily.

Garry also offers a Wordpress SEO service, where he will help wordpress bloggers improve their blogs and make it easier for search engines to index their posts. Plus, he designs some very nice headers for wordpress blogs. He made one for my new site, and I just love it. I think he did a beautiful job.

There are hundreds of meme trains out there, where we post our links and the links of those we consider friends/collegues/partners, but how often do we talk about our favorite bloggers just because of who they are. I challenge everyone to write one post about your favorite blogger, just for the sheer pleasure of writing.

Thanks Garry.

I'm very happy with the work we are doing together and finally feel like I'm doing something worth while.

I have learned a lot of things in the past few weeks, and I'm excited to see what the future will hold.

I am truly in your debt.
