Express Yourself




Express Yourself is a weekly meme that I co-host with Dani from Entertaining Interests. Its goal is to help our fellow bloggers get to know one another better, to help motivate one another, laugh (or cry) together, in other words – stalk.


What makes you tick? What inspires you to write? How’s the outside world influencing you? Whether it be a quote, a list of favorite things/people, a question, a song, etc., each Monday, we’ll find something different to post about. It will correlate with writing, blogging, and life in general. Then, we hope, you’ll follow suit and post, too.



At the beginning of every month, Dani and I will post a Gadget with a list of that month’s weekly Monday posts so you’ll be informed in advance. We like to bounce ideas of one another. So this Meme is perfect for us in coming up with ideas for topics.

We know most of you are busy when Monday rolls around or maybe you don’t post on Mondays at all. Don’t fret, we understand. That’s why you have the rest of the week to post. Just comment in one of our posts so we know to check out your blog and learn more about you.

  4. I just entered as well and posted my blog today. I have a couple of questions. I have a wordpress blog and I wanted to know how I could have the picture " express yourself" linked to my wordpress. I did it in a "share button" but it doesn't work. If anyone had wordpress could you please help me?

  5. I'm trying to add this to my blog--I can do the linky script in a widget, but half the names are missing. So I tried creating a page in hopes that I could create something like what you've got here, but it wouldn't create the script on the page. (Don't understand that since it did it in the widget.) sheesh
    So.
    Can you tell me how you created what you've got on this page? Is it the linky thing?
    Q2: Is there a way to tweak the list so that it's one column?
    Q3: What are we supposed to do with the Gadget? I want to play, but don't know this game. :)

    Hello, by the way. :)
    Found you via Krystol #32 via LinkedIn.

    1. We update the lists every two months or so. We don't want to kick people out, especially if there are some special circumstances, which has been the case with some.
      We'll be updating the list this weekend. :)

  8. I figured it out for wordpress.Okay, go to the express page, find the pic and COPY THE LINK…you have to right click. Then in the WIDGET section on our page go to IMAGE, PASTE in the Image part and then COPY AND PASTE the blogger’s profile for the person’s page that’s doing it. That’s what I did and it worked!

  13. Hey there!

    My name is Ashleigh and I’m the head of community for Buzzstarter, a San Francisco-based publisher network. You can check us out at: http://partners.buzzstarter.com/

    We have a live campaign, right now, for Unilever’s Best Meals Happen at Home. Our customer, Unilever, specifically requested that we reach out to publishers that we can create long term relationships with, as this campaign lasts until the end of 2015.

    We will send you the piece of content, in this case a recipe, and pay you a flat rate to post. At the same time, we will use social media to drive thousands of visitors to your publication, thereby increasing exposure and fan advocacy to your site.

    Would you be interested? Please let me know.

    Thanks so much,

    Ashleigh
