Here is the button again in case you would like to add it into your post.
<div align="center"><a href="http://lilysquilts.blogspot.com/" title="Fresh Sewing Day"><img src="http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5069/5883537449_e85ba77279_o.jpg" alt="Fresh Sewing Day" style="border:none;" /></a></div>
Now I am going to add a new section into Fresh Sewing Day which is to encourage a network of new bloggers to link up together. And if you any of you "older" bloggers have a minute to visit any of these blogs, please do! I often come across blogs that have just started, are a few posts in and have one or two followers and I remember how hard it was to move from one or two followers to any more. Where did followers come from? How did other people get followers and I just had my friend and my sister? So I thought I'd have a once a month feature called Small New Blog Meet-Up. So what are the rules? Simple, you have a blog with fewer than 20 followers but you would like to find a few more. Write a post which tells people a little bit about you and your quilting and add in this button. To add the button in, copy the text in the box underneath the button, go to the post you are drafting, click the Edit HTML tab at the top, paste the text in, return to the Compose tab and voila, you have the button. This will let other new bloggers know that the event is going on and they will come and join in too.

You then come over to the New Blog Meet-Up, click on the Linky and add a link to your blogpost. To do this, go to your blog, click on the New Blog Meet-Up post, copy the text from your browser bar and then post it into the linky when asked where you are linking to.
Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time.
Finally, visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.
