Spreading The Linky Love For June

Time to Spread the Love-I’d like to thank each one of you for being part of the Blind Pig. During the month of June you went along with me as I suckered tomatoes, bemoaned cuts in education funding, tried to figure out why I feel safer in the mountains, sat under the weeping willow tree and bragged about my squash.

I’ve always assumed everyone knew why I link back to folks who comment during the month-until someone asked me-“Why do you go to all that trouble of linking to each person who comments?” So I thought I would share the answer with you in case anyone else was wondering. The answer-each time someone links to your blog/website-it raises your Google ranking-which makes it easier for folks to find your site-and hopefully leads to an increase in traffic. As a way of saying thank you for supporting the Blind Pig & The Acorn-I link to your sites to show support for them too.

The prize for June-is the world renown book-Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart. I love reading about the history of Appalachia and it’s great people-but I especially enjoy Kephart’s book as he lived less than a 100 miles from me when he wrote it.

The Spread the Love winner for June is…David Templeton.

Hope you all keep visiting the Blind Pig-and please click on one of those commenters-and go for a visit- I know you’ll be glad you did.

    Tipper,
    I just figured out you probably didn’t realize that I signed my reply Georgie! I do that sometimes instead of signing my own name.

    Thank you!! And good news about the corn too. So far only my good day has come up. Wish I had your email-I like to reply to commenters by email-but since you’re a typepad user it doesn’t show it to me. If you’d like you could send it my way at [email protected]

    That is wonderful. I was born in WV and it is quite a diffrent life stile. I was raised in Missouri, so I do not follow there ways of life. For some it is in the past. My Uncle did not have indoor plumbing till the 90’s.
    Have a wonderful week.
