Oh I just have my hands in everything now don't I?
You know when you are stuck in the house for three days, kids outside, hubby working, you have a lot of time to think. And that I do.
 So I got to know how I am on this mission to help all the newbs out, with features, and tutorials, and general stuff right?
Off topic, can you believe I never even touched one of these cookies...sigh....
Well anyhow...I HAVE never seen a NEWBIE LINKY party!
Now what in my definition is a newbie blog? I would say a blog less than 6 months old, and/or less than 100 followers.  Now with a face like this.....
Can you really say NO, bad IDEA??? Probably Not, so I think we should do it.
Tell all your new friends, post it on your side bar and get the word out.  We know how it feels to be the new kid in town. Why not help them out.  So along with my features I will be doing,
I think I will see how this first partay goes. Let me know your thoughts....I do think THIS is an original idea...never done before.  I sure wish I would have seen a party like this when I first started.  I have worked my tush off to get my following, I'm just sayin!
I have seen the Blog hops, but those are for all blogs, MINE is ONLY for NEWBS!
And that is my tidbit for today!
If you are new to blogging and would like to be featured CLICK HERE.  You do not have to be necessarily new, how about looking for some more exposure?
My first featured blog will be this weekend. I also have three very special guest Bloggers coming don't want to miss what they have to say.
See you soon!
Thanks so much for your support, loyalty and friendships....I know you girls must think DANG, that Debbiedoos is on a roll....well your right, and I have to get it all out, while it's fresh in my head.

P.S. For you newbs who do not know how to link up, that is coming up next week, stay tuned!

That is a wonderful idea! I myself now fall under the 100 categorie after changing my blog name. It's gaining everyday day but whew. I have a new idea on a linky that I have been thinking I want to do myself. I've been thinking of this for some time but not sure how to run a linky. Would you email me and let me bounce all this off you to see if you think it will fly as much as I do. Thanks, Miss Mentor! :)))

GREAT IDEA!

Hi Deb,
Thanks so much for doing this, it will help us "newbies" so much. It's already on my sidebar with the link back to you! Kudos for you for not having one of those yummy cookies, have you heard of the kettlebell? I bought a 7lb one at Target, wish I'd have bought the 10lb one instead. to read about it if interested, what hurts me this morning?...inner thighs, arms the backs of them, backside especially. Bound and determined to get back in shape♥
