Introducing Around the Town on Tuesdays Blog Hop!

Take out your cameras and put on your walking shoes!  Jes @ Exposing the Drapes to My 20’s and I are thrilled to introduce to you our very own blog hop, Around the Town on Tuesdays!  In honor of our readers and the arrival of spring, we would love to see where you live, learn about your town and experience it all through your eyes and your words.  This is a great opportunity for all of us to step away from the computer and get out into our communities as well as to connect as bloggers by undergoing a journey through one another’s towns without ever leaving our very own. Think of it - a glimpse back into history, inspiration to try something new, or just plain fun!  Our hope is that you’ll just enjoy it and learn something about one another.
Enough rambling and on to the details.....
Since this blog hop will require a little footwork (hence, the need for your walking shoes) Jes & I are implementing Around the Town on Tuesdays biweekly.  This will give us all two full weeks to get out into our towns and prepare our posts.  We can change this in the future if this proves to be a success and not too difficult for a weekly blog hop.  For each post, we will give you a subject to compose your post around (i.e. best food in town, farmers’ markets, bakeries, etc.).  
There are a few guidelines, however.  This post must be authentic and personal.  We don’t really want to read what Wikipedia says about your town.  We want to know what YOU think and feel about your town.  And again, this is about stepping out into our communities and experiencing something and helping others experience it with us.  Googling it won’t really have the same effect.  But Google and Wikipedia can help you out a little with facts about your town & its history should you need it.  Just don’t make this a book report.  It is understandable that you can’t always get out and take recent pictures.  After all, we all have lives outside of the blogging world.  Therefore, past pictures may be used in your post as long as they are, in fact, your pictures.    
The first official day of the blog hop will be Tuesday, April 6th, 2010.  We’re going to keep the subject matter simple and general for our first post.  Therefore, our first post will be Town Introductions.  Where do you live?  What is your town known for?  When was your town established?  Maybe include a picture of your town square, city hall, the town’s sign, etc.  Your post can be as long or as short as you choose.  MckLinky will be up and going at 5:00AM CST on post day and will shut down at midnight.  Please post the Around the Town on Tuesdays badge somewhere in your post which can be found on the Around the Town on Tuesdays page (click the logo on the left sidebar) linking back to One Mom’s Perfect Imperfection.  A copy of this post will also be included on the blog hop page for you to have at your leisure.  
For future reference, I will have a schedule posted on my sidebar with dates for each blog hop post as well as the subject matter for said dates.  This schedule will be updated regularly.  We hope this will help those of you that like to prepare in advance.  Please email me with any questions and please, please, please get excited about this because Jes and I are stoked about the birth of this blog hop!  It’s unique, educational in its own way and should be loads of fun!  So join us every other Tuesday, won't you?!
