Hello, everyone! I hope you all had a nice weekend and read lots of good books.
Let me start by saying that this post is in NO WAY meant to make anyone feel bad. I just feel like there might have been some confusion concerning my post about YoRWtFIW (which I take full responsibility for), and I’d like to fix that.
As I said in my original post about YoRWtFIW, my very good friend sj came up with the idea and the title. She has been planning this year-long “event” for months now and has put a lot of work into it. sj’s good friend and co-conspirator Meg worked really hard on the graphics that we’re using. Meg is actually the mastermind behind the majority of the graphics on Snobbery.
I am SO HAPPY that so many of you have decided to join us for YoRWtFIW, and I know sj is super excited to see Dodisharkicorn (the character in the graphics) on so many other blogs. But I’m feeling kind of weird about my blog being linked back to instead of sj’s.
Please don’t get me wrong–I appreciate being linked back to. I have some of the best blogging friends in the entire blogosphere. You all are great. I just really want to make sure that credit is being given where credit is due, and all of the credit for YoRWtFIW goes to sj and Meg. So I need to ask all of the wonderful people joining us for YoRWtFIW to do me a favor…
If you are joining us, and if you’ve written a post about it, could you (pretty) please link back to sj’s blog (http://booksnobbery.wordpress.com/) so the people reading your blog will know where the idea originated? Snobbery is a wonderful blog that sj and Meg put a lot of work into, and I would feel so much better if I knew it was getting the traffic it deserves for YoRWtFIW. If you have already linked to sj’s blog, I thank you.
I hope this post doesn’t embarrass sj too much, but I knew I would continue to feel weird about it unless I spoke up. As bloggers, I know you’ll all understand why I was feeling bad about this. As my friend, I’m sure sj will forgive me if I’ve embarrassed her.
I thank you all in advance for helping me correct this. I know it’s not a huge issue, but it means a lot to me.
