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.

Ok, I think that is it for this week. If you have a question or something doesn't make sense, leave it in the comment section or feel free to email me. After this month of catch up, we will return to one smaller list a week.

Happy Commenting and Thank you.

Sounds good. I finished with yesterday's list and will tackle this one tomorrow.

It makes sense to get to the blogs sooner, as several people have commented back saying that they joined months ago and why were so many of us visiting them now...

Kisha said...

Sounds great! I've met so many awesome bloggers and now friends through SITS, I'm thrilled to be doing this! Will get started on that first list ASAP!!!

strokeofliving said...

I'm going through the list right now. This is great. I always wondered how to become a welcomista.

Stefanie said...

This is great; I'm going through the list and fall within the N-Z part of the Alphabet. Great work ladies

Linzi said...

I have 4 down and will complete the rest of the list after some sleep. Note to self: do not start at 2am. :)
This is fun! Thanks for letting me be a part of it!

I am excited to be a part of the welcoming team! It is nearly 3am here (couldnt sleep, was catching up on Grey's) but thought I would check my email before bed.

I will be getting busy, tomorrow (wait, today..just a few hours from now..ha) welcoming the new folk.

Thanks for the chance to be a bigger part of this great website!

Just One Week said...

I just visited La Mode, Let's Get Fit, Look What I Found Sis, and Not Your Average Teen.

I love blogs by teenagers. Helps me brush up on my slang and hipness before meeting with clients (therapy).

*Also - do we really need word verification if this is a private site?
