AllMediocre - The Web’s Best Blogs, You Just Don’t Know It!


Weekly Shout-Outs and a Call to Rock the Vote

It’s that time again! Shout out time!

First, the boring stuff:

The Great AllMediocre Giveaway of ‘08 is set to begin next Monday, July 21st! We’ve got some great items lined up…so be sure to pimp it out on your site and drive traffic our way! The more people who know AllMediocre exists, the greater potential to grow your blog! Button code is available on the Blog Bling page. A slightly larger version is available over at my place, should you want it.

Speaking of the Great AllMediocre Giveaway of ‘08, if you’d like to donate an item, like Amy in Ohio, Zarafa and Erin already have, we’d be more than happy to give it away, and talk you up in the meantime1

And in regards to Blog Bling, we’re still looking for more “I used to be Mediocre but now I’m on Alltop” buttons and some “I’ve always been on Alltop, but I support the Mediocre” type buttons. Make some up and send ‘em my way! Meghan(at)allmediocre(dot)com

And finally, because I’m going to a little Blogger Conference in a few days, I won’t be around to write this here post next weekend. BUT, I’ve recruited my sister, known around here as “Quart” to write it for me! So look for her version of the weekend Shout Out. And I’ve also recruited my friend Z to do a little something as well. SO, you’ll be well taken care of while I’m in San Francisco making a FOOL of myself while shamelessly promoting AllMediocre.

Now on to this week’s Shout Outs!

*******Drum Roll******

Jen wants to know why it’s so damned hard to raise kids…any ideas? Oh, and she also offers some sage advice I’m sure we could all use.

At Eat Play Love you’ll learn how she fell in love with a few hundred men at once and about her Mad Eavesdropping Skillz.

Madge declares that It’s National Madge Is Going To Post Every Day For The Next 37 Days Month Which Is More Than A Month But What The Hell It’s My Blog Month OR NaMaIGoToPoEvDaFoThNe37DaMoWhIsMoThAMoBuWhTheHeItMyBlMo. Say that ten times fast. She’s also declaring her love for a man who is not her husband. That seems to be a running theme this week.

Heather’s got a Giveaway going on over at her place and she’s house hunting

Christy shares some info from her life…and some random thoughts. Warning…don’t read it if you’re hungry.

Feener admits to a love affair with Ziploc bags and asks for your opinions on “mom cards” and proves that cattyness among women is going strong, even outside of the blog world.

Jennifer is having some housing issues…and deals with them in her own way.

And speaking of Monopoly, Melissa played it this week and also sold her fridge on Craig’s List.

And, it seems that Marinka was playing Monopoly this week as well. THAT seems to be a running theme this week, too!

Punk Rock Mom faced her fears…and brought her daughter to see Wall-E.

Erin has some important life lessons to share with us.

Connie is holding a Giveaway for her Blogoversary!

Raising the Boys wrote a great post about blogging. Something I think we can all relate to.

Lacey Bean had quite a trip to DC. Which luckily didn’t put a damper on her Birthday Week O’ Fun.

Manic Mommy participated in the One Word Meme Challenge and shares a funny email she got.

And Cereal Dieter did the Flickr Meme.

And, remember to check out our Resources page…for the other websites of our AllMediocre members! And don’t forget to let me know if you’ve got a site I need to add!

Also…because I love your input, I mean, what would AllMediocre be WITHOUT you?

    Yay! More fun stuff to surf during naptime (maybe she’ll sleep extra-long today…)! I love the Flickr Meme and had a great time making mine. I posted my result here:

    I’d love to hear about others who do it, because it’s so fun to see the creative picture choices for the answers. I’m also going a little crazy with mosiac creation now because it’s kind of addicting.

    Thanks for a great list!

    I did the Flickr Meme too, and it was a lot of fun:

    I’d never done a mosaic before so it was a lot of trial and error, but I’m glad I did it.

    Off to see PsychMamma’s version…
