Blogger Appreciation Day: April 2011

bloggerappreciationbannerAlthough I can’t believe April is already over, it really seems like it has been quite some time since I wrote my last Blogger Appreciation Day post.  I have some major things happening behinds the scenes in response to YOUR responses in my survey.  Plus, I have a pretty exciting event coming up to help us all celebrate National Parenting Month AND the 200 dollar follower giveaway will be here before you know it.

Oh, and I have a secret…. oh I am so dying to tell it!  Maybe next week… the goal is to tell my secret on Saturday during my Web Wide Weekend Wrap Up

, so be sure to look for it then!

Ok, on to the stats and how to do it…

Here’s how it works:

  1. Go into your tracking service (I use Google Analytics) and set the time period for January 1st – January 31st.
  2. Find the sites that have referred readers to you and put them in order from most sends to lowest. (I only do blogs and small businesses, not big sites!)
  3. Write a post (like this one) listing your top 10 referrers.
  4. Grab the Blogger Appreciation Day picture and add it to your site or post. (It is also nice to link back to my site, since I am giving you a link )
  5. Link that post up in my LinkyTools below. (Please do not list your current giveaways!! If you want your giveaways linked, send me )
  6. Scroll down and you will see a list of links, simply add your direct post link to it.
