    How many of you have your own blog?

    I'm curious, how many of our members run their own blogs, on any topic?

    Re: How many of you have your own blog?

    I don't but my wife does (but I help her with it). My wife has her own blog on healthy living (she developed a certified organic, cold pressed meal replacement food bar and an online health and wellness website). She actually formulated the foodbar for me as I struggled with weight gain after taking a desk job and we've since taken it to market.

    Re: How many of you have your own blog?

    I'm thinking about a contest where anyone with a blog who writes an article on some pool related topic and includes a mention and link to TFP would be entered. Thoughts?

    I have a blog but pool related articles would not be appropriate to the content. I do have a link to TFP on my pool Website, does that qualify?

    Qualify for what? I'm just thinking out loud here.

    Any contest I would potentially run would be based on NEW activity though.

    Re: How many of you have your own blog?

    For entering in a contest based on having a link to TFP or mentioning TFP on one's private site. A blog is a site, isn't it? So is a photo album on Picasa, for instance, as long as it's publicly accessible.

    It would have to be a post on a blog with pool related text and at least one link to TFP homepage or a specific thread. I'm still working on the details. As with any contest, it would not be retroactive for prior activity - only new postings. However, creating a free blog is very easy.

    Again, still working out details this is NOT a live contest.

    Nope, don't have one.
    I have enough trouble trying to keep up with all the posts on forums I frequent.

    Re: How many of you have your own blog?

    I have a blog, and need to get something up there, I think it has been about 4 months since I have posted. I am a bad blogger. I will put an article up there on pools and link back here for the contest. No problem.

    If we do it, it wouldn't be until Spring time, but feel free to mention the site at any time in your blog.

    I was going to do it sooner, but the payoff wouldn't be worth the effort this time of year.
