Do You Want Your Blog/Website on my Sidebar?

For those of you who don't know, I am participating in Blogging Idol. The simplest explanation is that it is a contest of over 100 Bloggers who are competing to see who can gain the most subscribers during the month of July.

While I love writing my blog and I hope you love reading it, I am not above good old-fashioned bribery to try and win this contest!!

This is for all my readers who have blogs/and or websites - for each new subscriber to my blog (you can subscribe by giving me your email on the top left side bar), I will post a link to YOUR BLOG OR WEBSITE during the entire month of July son my sidebar- its a free link! :-) Please just leave me a comment here with the following information:

1) The URL for your blog OR website that you want me to list
2) That you confirmed your subscription to my blog by clicking on the email you received
3) the email you used for your subscription

And yes, if you have 4 blogs or websites and you sign up for my blog subscription and 3 of your friends sign up - that will entitle you to get ALL OF YOUR BLOGS/WEBSITES LISTED!

Thanks for your support and hopefully you will see this as a win-win - to get you publicity as well!

Just out of curiosity what if you use a RSS reader? Like I just subscribed using bloglines.

Hello Mommy Meryl, I would have eventually surfed to your blog eventually via my quest to surf all the DailyBlogTips - BlogIdol contestants; but I got here sooner rather than later because I seen you linked from WinningStartups blog list. Like your signature font. Maybe I'll try a bloglist myself.

- confirmed email subscription
- sent to

Any chance I could get my email address edited out to cut down on those nogerian scams I receive from my email listed, not that I fall for them everytime.

Hi mommy meryl,
Thanks for subscribing to my blog, and I see that you have made some changes to the color and size of your blogging area - much better:-)
I'm also a mommy, although as you guessed, I'm in Israel, so here I'm called "Ima", or "Mum".
I was born in England and moved to Israel 30 years ago.
I've just subscribed to your blog, so would appreciate a link from it to mine :-)
Good luck (although not too much - I would like to win myself!)

I subscribed through my Google Reader - my preferred method. However, I also submitted my email address in the Feedburner bar per your request. However, I got this message: "The feed does not have subscriptions by email enabled."

1. My URL is

2. I will confirm when email is sent.

3. I used the email address:
