Friday’s #TBSU List
Posted by Amber Lea
Good morning fellow bloggers! Well Friday is finally here, and we’re getting ready to spend another busy weekend. With Christmas just around the corner, we are putting on our final touches to the gift wrapping, baking and some much needed errands. (Being sick for the past week has put me dreadfully behind, but I’m on the mend, praise God, and trying to catch up now.)
In all honesty, I haven’t been able to keep up with the posts on here this past week, but I do have a few more blogs to add to the #TBSU (The Blog Scratchers Union) list. I do hope you will check them out, and share them with your friends if you like! And don’t forget to “like” and “follow”. It helps others to find the sites too. Thanks for helping to spread the word, and I wish you all happy blogging! 🙂
Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and a wonderfully blessed New Year!!!

A New Idea from a New Friend
Posted by Amber Lea
Good morning to all!
They call this the “season of sharing”. (Well, I personally think that should be a year round theme, but that’s another soapbox.) I’d like to take this opportunity to thank a new friend and fellow author for his idea about writers helping each other to expand their audiences. His name is Seumas Gallacher, and his idea is “you scratch my blog, I’ll scratch your blog”. A “union” of blog writers is being formed called “The Blog Scratchers Union” with a hashtag of #TBSU.
The idea is to spread the word about the blogs you enjoy and follow by creating a listing at the end of your posts, or in a special section of your blog if you prefer. It seems to catching on like wildfire from what I’ve seen so far. I’ve already found several new blogs that I am now following, thanks to Seumas’ lists.
As a new and unknown author, this is a great way to make new acquaintances (and friends), to share resources and information, and get the word out there about your books and blogs. And it’s FREE! Now that’s a word we all like to hear!
So, as a part of my Christmas gift to my fellow authors (and continuing throughout the rest of the year) each Friday I will be posting my list for #TBSU. Since I am running 3 different blogs now, I will be separating my lists into categories according to the theme of each particular blog. The following are my blogs and their themes:
http://amberleaofalaska.wordpress.com – My personal blog, sharing a variety of thoughts, inspirations, and things about writing.
https://faithhopeandmiracles.com/ – Sharing encouragement & hope through God’s love and truth.
http://christianscritters.com/ – A place for sharing everything about animals.
I will be copying this post to each of the other sites as well, with the current listing at the end. If you or anyone you know has a blog, this is a great way to connect with others of similar interests, so please share!
Have a great weekend, and God bless!
