So here's the deal.
On March 3rd, the official Bead Soup Blog Party reveal day, post a picture of YOUR jewelry on your blog. I'd like to challenge you to dig into your bins and drawers and choose beads you have either been hoarding, bought and can't remember why on EARTH you bought them anymore -- pick something out of your comfort zone. Make it, post it, and then, visit the official partiers.

Why will this work for you?
In blogging, you often get followers by leaving GENUINE comments on other people's blogs. When I say "genuine", I mean more than, "Pretty necklace, visit mine at blog.blogspot.com". I love to click each person's name who visits my blog, and that's lead me to so many new places! I've become followers of blogs I've really liked, and gotten some followers in return. And I always make sure to take a look at a few of their posts, too, to get a feeling for their blog and what it's all about.

I hope that helps take any sting out of not being chosen, and gives you some ideas about how to increase your blog readership at the same time. Besides, visiting the BSBP blogs will give you a lot of ideas, introduce you to a lot of new people, and blogging can be a great networking tool.
Visit me tomorrow for the list of attendees!
