#Back2Blogging Event- Day 2!

Today's assignment is to re-upload a post you wish more people had read and explain why it was important to you. It was hard for me to choose which one, because secretly I think we would want people to read everything we write!

I did end up choosing this one that I wrote on September 1, 2010.  Never having heard the term "#LinkLove before, I was fascinated about the concept. I thought it was such a lovely way of visiting other people's pages and blogs and allowing them to share their links too!

It did remind me of cross-pollination in a way.  Since no one commented, I started to wonder if I was off base comparing the two! Here it is:

#LinkLove and Cross-pollination!

On Facebook , I recently was introduced to the concept of #LinkLove. I think it is such a generous and wonderful idea. You can have a LinkLove section on your fan page, which lets people who become a fan of yours, post their links of their websites, blogs, fan pages, Twitter and Facebook on to your page. I always like to thank the people becoming a fan on my page and reciprocating on to their pages.

There is also the ♥ #LINKLOVE ♥ GROUP PAGE  and LINKLOVE SUCCESS  on Facebook where you can add your links and find more information on Lovin the Links! 

It automatically reminded me of the sweet bird, butterfly or bee who jumps from flower to flower cross-pollinating!

According to Wikipedia, "Cross-pollination, also called allogamy, occurs when pollen is delivered to a flower from a different plant. Plants adapted to outcross or cross-pollinate often have taller stamens than carpels or use other mechanisms to better ensure the spread of pollen to other plants' flowers."

How wonderful it is to be cross-pollinating other people's blogs and pages, increasing their fan base, a.k.a flowers and at the same time benefiting you!  When I see a post of someone that is nearing a milestone, let's say almost 500 fans, and she is at 498, it feels wonderful to be able to help that person bump up to the next level.

I just started my fan page, so I have a way to go, but it feels so good to help others on their journey.  May we keep cross-pollinating the gardens of others and soon we too will have a garden full of precious blooms!

You may be wondering why I have a picture of a turquoise washer and dryer on my page.  The #Back2Blogging event was created by The SITS Girls, it is to help us get back into the routine of posting on our blogs.  One of the lucky participants will walk away with this washer and dryer set! How cool is that?!!

So drum roll please... I introduce to you Thelma and Louise, the fabulous washer and dryer set!
