Hi Ladies,

After much consideration, we've decided to end the way the Welcomistas currently functions.

With the way the comments on SITS now allow for nested replies, Kat, Fran and I have been welcoming newbies quickly and easily.

Having said that, we of course, would love and appreciate any commenting you continue to do on behalf of SITS. We'd also love to see you in the blog frog community- if any of you have an interest in being a community lead over there- we switch it up each month.

SITS huge growth over the past year (we are over 7,000 strong!) is largely impart to your effort, so THANK YOU.

I'd especially like to thank Jen, who really kept things moving.

I'll be taking this site down shortly, of course, you can email me with any questions- sitsgirls@gmail.com

I just wanted to post a little update so that you all know what is going on. I have been talking with Tiffany and Heather about the future of the Welcomistas. To me, it just doesn't seem like people are out there going around and commenting on the lists. There are 60 some people following this blog and only 5 to 10 actively comment.

So for the summer, we are going to take a little break. I will be making lists and posting them about every other week or so. And then come fall, we are going re-evaluate things like maybe make a post on BlogFrog instead. I don't know, we are still brain stroming. If you have any ideas, let me/us know.

I now just want to say thank you to everyone who does go around and comment. And please, this post is in no means meant to make people feel gulity about not being able to get around. We all have a life and have to live that first. I just love SITS and everything that it stands for. So I want other people to know about it and feel the same love and support that SITS has given me. Its all about supporting each other and making people feel like they are apart of something big.

So I wish everyone a great summer and I will post a new list on Monday.

New Lists (June 6)

Sorry for the delay! Quick note on SITS badges - 11 of these 50 bloggers do not have a SITS badge (22%)!! Do we want to:
1.) Not visit them (maybe they no longer wish to participate and thus removed their badges?)
2.) Visit them and when we comment ask them to add a badge?
3.) Send an email asking to add a badge.

But while I'm complaining about badgeless blogs, I should note that I'm not a big badge fan and was hesitant myself in adding a SITS badge because I don't post any badges of any kind on my blog. But I did add the badge - but at the bottom of the page. I'd be interested in hearing your thoughts.

**This week's list brings us up to April 7th.

Have a great week, Erin

"New" SITStas To Welcome

Hi ladies! I did notice that there were a few Welcomistas on the list from last week and yes, the list may seem a bit old. It was from January and has brought us up to February this week. So, we may be welcoming some SITStas that have been with us for a few months. But, the important thing is, we are spreading the SITS love. Because SITS is growing so rapidly,  I am not sure that we will ever actually get "caught up", but we will do our best to make sure everyone gets a warm SITS welcome regardless of when the joined. Thanks again for all your hard work!

Just a Quick Update


I am working on the lists for this weekend but I just wanted to put this post out there because I need to get an organized list of people willing to make the lists for this blog.

It appears to me that list of 50 works well so I am thinking this will be our new standard. If you are in charge of making the lists it will be for one months time. Also, this means that Tiffany will put your blog button on the SITS site for the time you are in charge of the lists.

If this is something that you want to do, please send me an email. The list that I had is a little out of date and with all the new people around here, I wanted to update things.

Update and Newbies

I am going to interupt our normal schedule for a little update.

First, I let me introduce myself to those of you who don't know me. I am Jen from Buried with Children and I help Tiffany keep this blog going. There are a handful of us that work on posting the lists over here. Now, I want to say hello to all of our new Welcomistas. We are so glad to have you!

This blog is used to post a weekly list of all the new people that are joining SITS. As Welcomistas, we go around to theses new people and 'welcome' them to SITS and by doing this spread a little comment love around. This is a very important job because it gets more and more people to not only join SITS but to comment on roll call and then comment on other SITSta's blogs. This is what SITS is all about.

So we have a little problem, we are really far behind is welcoming people to SITS. If you think about it this is a good problem to have. So for this month, we are going to try and play catch up.

This is what is going to happen. I will take over posting the lists this month but each week, I am going to post a larger list and we are going to split it in half.

What I mean is this, I am going to post a list of 50 new SITStas (the normal is 20 or 25) and then if your last name is in the first half (A-M) of the alphabet, then you will comment/welcome the first 25 and if your name is in the last half (N-Z) then you will comment/welcome on the last 25.

The plan is by doing this for a month, we will be more current with our welcomings.

So that's the deal. In the previous post, there is a list of 20 newbies that need a welcome visit and I am going to list 20 more at the end of this post. Let's say that if you are an A-M last name then take the first list and then the N-Z names will take this one. And by all means, if you want feel free to visit all the blogs listed.

Oh and don't for get to leave a comment here when you are done with the lists or when you start just so that we will know who is out there helping with this. This really is what SITS is all about, sharing comment love, and I know that our efforts mean a lot to Tiffany and Heather.

Happy Commenting and Thank you.
