yeah write #43 is open

Happy Tuesday, everybody!

If this is your first time here, welcome! Please take a moment to read the yeah write FAQ and the guide to writing a winning yeah write post. Even if you’re not here necessarily for the competition portion of our program, the second link is also designed as a guide to writing a pretty good blog post. I’d love for you to read them both before linking up so you’ll know what you’re getting yourself into. Then grab a button from the sidebar—it contains the code you’ll need to add to your post before clicking the blue button to submit it. We’re glad you’re here.

If you’re returning to yeah write for the second or third time, welcome back! I’m glad you had enough fun with us the first time around to bring you here once again. Just in case you missed it, yeah write can be found on Twitter @yhwriteme even though I still use my free fringes account to get the word out to a larger group of followers. Soon enough, @yhwriteme will be the only Twitter account with yeah write tweets. I’ll get there. Baby steps. Old habits. Die hard. All that.

Have you linked up with yeah write more times than you can count? You were a yeah write veteran back when you were called a lovelinks veteran and you remember way back in the spring of  ’11 when lovelinks was at free fringes? I made you a new button! Look in the sidebar at the very top of the super cool button badges. That’s right—total yeah write addict. The linkup code is embedded, so if you wanna grab it for today’s linkup, go for it. 

Some of you guys know me by now: even if it’s your first time here and you feel like a total yeah write addict and that’s the badge you want for today’s linkup? Who am I to say no? You like it, take it. I made it just for you, too. Writing and blogging addictions for everybody!

Yeah write #43 is open. Be good, guys. Be good guys. Be, good guys.

    SO many great posts this week…..the bottom row is taunting me to up my game for next week :)….I like a good challenge!!!

    • Erica M [Thu] 9 Feb 12 at 9:25 pm

      I love your attitude, Meg! I’m competitive, too, so I can’t wait to see what you link up with next week. I’m excited to see you on Twitter!

    Just so everyone knows…BLOGGER will not let some people comment on their sites. I have run into this on several different blogs now. I type in the comment, use my Google Account to log in…and BAM it disappears when I hit submit. So, if your site is powered by Blogger, just know that some of us would LOVE to comment, but can’t. /endrant

    Holy cow…so I found it SO hard to vote for only three! I’m with Ado…I love what you’re doing.
    So many good posts.

  • Abby [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 12:39 pm

    50! Woo hoo! You can’t see me, but I’m TOTALLY doing the cabbage patch dance over here. Can’t wait to read everyone’s posts!!

    Holy mother of GOD these posts are very good.
    I’m serious – there are so many good ones this week it boggles the mind.
    I like what you’re doing here Erica – keeping us all on our toes, upping our game – it’s not just a willy-nilly linkup, it’s a pretty serious writing crew and community going on here. Well-done you.

    • Erica M [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 1:08 pm

      Thanks, Ado! I work very hard for this not to be a willy-nilly linkup, and it helps that you guys bring your A-game. It wouldn’t be any good without good writers and bloggers.

  • Eric Storch [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 8:39 am

    Erm, can I withdraw my submission? Turns out I have ZERO time to visit the other submissions and it’s not fair for me to submit without reading everyone else.

    If I can’t, then nobody vote for me, k? Ya hear? DON’T VOTE FOR ME!!!

    Sorry all. 🙁

    • Erica M [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 9:20 am

      I deleted it for you. We hope to see you next week!

      • Eric Storch [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 9:22 am

        Thanks. Sorry about that.

  • Janice [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 7:39 am

    I love this writing group–it’s so AWESOME!

    Also Erica, I replied on my blog but I wasn’t sure if you caught it, so I wanted to answer your question. My daughter will be 11 in March. I don’t think she’ll ever catch up to a “normal” level, but hopefully she’ll be able to do some of those things eventually. (Like use the toilet!!!)

    • Erica M [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 7:44 am

      Thanks for answering me both places, Janice. I would have made it back over there eventually. Haha. 51 blogs for us this week, and I’ll be making the rounds with everyone else. I’m so glad you’re enjoying your time with us. Blessings to you and your daughter.

  • Eric Storch [Wed] 8 Feb 12 at 12:23 am

    Oh my! I’ve got a lot of reading to do in the morning.

  • Jamie [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 10:14 pm

    Are you going to have to change the rules?!? Good grief!!

    • Erica M [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 10:14 pm

      Change the rules to what?

  • Katie [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 7:15 pm

    • Mayor Gia [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 6:42 pm

  • Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 9:26 am

    Ah! Trying to link up, but it is not working well. Can’t see our link up no matter how many times I refresh. I apologize if suddenly we have three entries.
    This worked so easily last week. I’m not sure what is going on.


    • Sisterhood of the Sensible Moms [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 9:40 am

      Success! Can I get me a “Perseverance-Didn’t Chuck My Computer Across The Room-Or Even Harm Small Animals In The Process” Badge?

  • Andrea @ The Penny-Roach's [Tue] 7 Feb 12 at 8:31 am

    I’m out for this week guys, not feeling the best. But I’ll be back next week! Have fun 🙂
