Calling all newbies

It is pretty neat how all of us blogging ladies come together and support one another.
This is one of the many reasons I love to blog.
If you are new to the blogging community and would like to be put out there just a tad more,  let me know, I would love to feature you.

 We all had to start somewhere, and it can be intimidating, and questionable sometimes.
Speaking of questionable, I do Live in SOUTH CAROLINA right?

 Now, I realize I am not   "THE BIG BLOG"

however, I do get a lot of interaction and you will gain  some  solid exposure and new followers. So if you are interested, let me know.
I would love to do this more often.  I saw my first attempt last week, was very successful, and I thank you all so much for that, she received (30 new followers in a day) I am interested in newer blogs myself, so this gives me an opportunity to see what is fresh and upcoming for the New year.
And let's not forget to mark our calendars for the PET PARTY. Thanks to all for putting word out.
Lucy had fun playing in the snow today!
And as you can see so did I!
I am enjoying my new camera, and really kinda self teaching as I go along. I can see an improvement myself, and hope you are enjoying my photos as well.
Also, if in general you just want me to feature you, and something cool you did, let me know, I would love to do that as well. Have your day in the spotlight too!
EMAIL me at 
better yet you can leave your LINK here, in order for me to keep track and check it out.

This is so sweet, Debbie! I remember when I first started blogging I felt like the girl at lunch that nobody wanted to sit with... I was featured by Lisa at Tarnished and Tattered, and Brenda at Cozy Little House, and I made lots of new friends! I enjoy following new bloggers, too! Love your beautiful winter photos!

Love these pictures..hey do what the magazines do and get the whole family out for a picture that you can use for next years Christmas cards...all in the snow with the red lantern of course as it is so pretty in the snow! Great job!

Great shots, Debbie. I can't get out because we have freezing rain now! Love the holly bush shot with the colors popping out of the white.

I can honestly say that nobody featured me until November...4 mos after starting the blog, but when it rains, it pours. Besides, I always came here and knew I was welcome and still to this day, you are the second largest source of traffic for me, even when you took your break, it didn't change the overall standings. People that come to your blog are great folks, and they are all community oriented, so MOTHER(caps cause you are like the fairy godmother of blogs-coin it Deb), thank you for being you and for always being inviting! Look at the ladies that commented before me, I love them all, and saw them all here, and initially searched out their blogs because of you! Love to you lady! PS, great shots!!!

One thing I do know is that I don't want it to be me. I get stressed out when I see I have more followers.

But it's a very thoughtful thing for you to do! If I come across any new ones I will let you know. I'm still in the process of deleting people who don't blog anymore cuz I ran out of room:(

Blogger Kim said...

Debbie, I love those photos...especially the last one. Of course, here in the North snow is always beautiful...from the comfort of my living room I just started blogging in early December and I would so love a shout out:)

I love the idea, but it sounds a little scary!! What if I am not good enough?! Your blog is so amazing that it is a little intimidating!

Wow, everyone is snowed or iced in today. It is raining here in Orlando. Your pictures are turning out wonderful! How sweet of you to feature new bloggers. At sometime you must have said something about my blog, yesterday i was looking at where my traffic came from and the second highest referring site was DEBBIEDOOS, get out of here. You might not be the biggest blog, but people listen to you.

Debbie Doo Doo- You are a good soul,you know that? I think this is a wonderful thing to do ...and for those of us that like blogs and work and don't have the time to be out there "searching" you help us, too, by discovering new ones that we can check out knowing they are DebbieDoo-Do's (as opposed to DebbieDoo's-Don't-remember Glamour mags Dos&Don't?) So, it's a great service to everyone!

You are doing a good job with your new camera! Love the snow pictures..which you don't have much opportunity to take. Hugs- Diana

Great pictures. I really like the red in the snow. I should have got out and taken more pics. of the snow this morning, but it is just to cold out there.
What a nice thing to do - featuring new bloggers.

Blogger The Decorative Dreamer said...

Debbie that is so nice of you. I am sorry you are stuck at home alone on this beautiful snow day. You should have put on those big snuggly warm boots of yours and gone out and thrown snowballs at your nieghbors homes until they came out! LOL! JK! We just heard schools are still going to be closed tomorrow. I bet yours will be too, maybe your boys can make it home and yall can play tomorrow. Your photos are wonderful too. Love all your snow covered lanterns and berries.

Thanks for the opportunity.

I have been playing with my camera but it is so confusing but,I need to take better blog pictures and etsy pictures! I think that is what gets me discouraged while blogging. I do love your pictures and sometimes you just have to play around and take lots of pictures to get the best shot.

Fantastic pictures! I have a new camera too and can't wait to share some photos on my blog - when I figure out how BEST to work the camera. LOL! I had my settings o high that I couldn't upload the pics into my blog (files were too large). Oops! I need to load some photo editing software onto my new laptop PRONTO.

Oh, I'm following from the blog hop. Please follow back! I'd love for you to visit and post a blab on my blog! :)

This is so sweet, featuring new bloggers. I'm not sure if I would qualify as 'new' since I've been blogging since the start of the school year.

I've just discovered your blog and love your photos. Incidentally, I also have boys, and boys do stink. My oldest son plays multiple sports and oftentimes will change in the van on the way from one sport to the other(the windows are tinted.) He left his jock in the car on a particularly hot weekend, and I just about passed out the next time I jumped into the van. Love the hamper

Such a great idea! I've only been blogging since late September but had terrific features by Barbara Jean at Treasures from the Heart, Brenda at Cozy Little House and Anne at Fiona and Twig that REALLY helped me meet people and learn the ropes. I hope you do feature some real newbies and encourage them! ps - would love to know what kind of new camera you have. Off to check older posts!

You are a big sweetie. I remember when I LINKED FOR THE FIRST TIME WITH YOU AND YOU WERE SO PATIENT WITH ME! I am learning a new camera also...reading the manual, which I did, was tough. I will never be big but have a loyal group of commentents. ♥O

Oh your pictures are beautiful Debbie! Like right out of a magazine.... But not as beautiful as your giving spirit! I'm a new (old) blogger. Started more than two years ago but was sidetracked early on by an illness...So do I count? *winks* Vanna

WOW.. new camera. I'm thrilled we will get to see some more great shots from you this year. What kind did you get?

Sooooo, now that you have a taste of a snowy day. Maybe, you will see why is sit with a ball of yarn and hook. 5 inches coming tonight here...yadda, yadda....

Looking forward to see more snaps

Hi Debbie- I was actually putting a comment in on your dinner with hubby post- but it didn't work... luckily I copied it and pasted it here! :) (I have had my comments poof away too many times that I have learned!! lol!)
Hi Debbie~ I love this idea! I remember when a very sweet blogger, Miss Gloria at Happy To Be stopped by and asked if she could do a little post about me and introduced my blog to her blog world. I was so touched and the new friends I met gave me the confidence to really get blogging! I got off to a slow start blogging and one of the reasons why was that I didn't quite know how to get out there and make friends- this is so great what you are doing- you are such a sweetie! :)

Debbie, you were my first "non-already-know" follower on my blog! I thank you for that! I don't think I do enough at a good enough quality to be featured. But I think it's a wonderful thing for you to offer!

I go back and forth on be too out there... I take negative comments very personally and I take getting 200 hits with no comments personally too, lol! That's probably too much emotional attachment... but at least I can laugh at myself ;)
