Got held up at work, then came home and found my Internet down, so I haven’t had time to browse around for the Feminist Friday roundup. I’m still planning to do one if I can find three good links.
I plan to do a surveillance post this weekend with an update on The Day We Fight Back and our alliance. I’ll be checking in with alliance members in the next day or two. I’m not sure what else I’ll do this weekend, but you know there will be at least a post a day here.
We’ve expanded into Stumbleupon. Jeremy had an old account and stumbled some of our stuff this week. We found a noticeable number of readers that way, so we’ve stumbled a few of our friends to see what it does for them. I don’t have the time to build a totally new network there, but Sourcerer has a Stumble account, followed by only Diana and Jeremy the last time I looked. It occurred to me that I should only Stumble blogs, and invite bloggers to follow us. Stumble feed rankings seem to be determined by likes. So, I am imagining what a large number of bloggers could do on a Stumbler profile that’s dedicated to promoting blogs.
This was so easy to set up I couldn’t pass on the opportunity. Jeremy and Diana have used Stumble in the past, so they know a bit about it. I’m brand new to it, but that is a good thing. It means I can create a stumble feed that contains nothing but good blogs, and anyone who follows me can help those blogs by liking the posts that they find appealing. I’m not just promoting our work with this. I’ll Stumble blogs just because I like them or because I am having conversations with the bloggers who own them.
Eventually I’ll have a dedicated list for every blog I’ve Stumbled. If you have a Stumbleupon account and you’re a blogger, follow me and I will follow you back. I thought since I already posted this on the Facebook page and tweeted it, now would be a good time to mention it.
Most of what I am doing on Twitter is blog-oriented. I re-tweet other bloggers and I use it to communicate with collaborators about what I’m posting and when it’s coming. So, if you have a Twitter account, you might want to go ahead and follow me.
Stick with me. This is a process.
