Lifecruiser Blog Make Over
I’ve been talking about a new blog layout for this blog ever since I started in 2005. Even though I’ve done some changes of the background and blog header images, no real blog make over have been done.
I’ll now hire somebody else to do it for me, because I’ve realized that it will never happen if I proceed with the self deceit thought that I’ll make it myself. Besides that: I want a more professional approach.
I’ve kicked my butt now and at least started the process to hire a special blog designer in mind and I’m very excited about it!!!
More information will come later in this subject…
A-Team Cruisers Butt Kicking
At the moment we have kind of a slow pace here in the cyber cruise, so I’ll grab the opportunity to kick my A-Team Cruisers butt a bit…. *giggles*
Please dig deep in your sources, you must have a lot of experiences in your luggage than you can share with us…?
It doesn’t necessary have to be a whole trip you’ve made to another place – it can be a certain subject, culture discussion or what ever you want to show us or discuss with us.
Let me know what you have in mind and when and I’ll announce it in advance.
We’re ready for some more dirty cruise dancing
To write a cyber cruise post
- To write a cyber cruise is for A-Team Cruiser only. That means that I’ll announce the post in advance and that the other cruisers should be visiting you and comment your cruise post. Meaning more publicity for you
- The criteria for being a cyber cruise post is a bit vague, it could be: your hometown, a trip you’ve done – even the smallest one, some culture subject, a fantasy trip, anything interesting or a subject you are passionated about.
- When writing a cyber cruise post, make sure to add a technorati tag in the end of the cruise post, so it’s easy to find:
- I suggest that you even add a link to the Cruiser Grades page AND the Lifecruiser blogroll page, so it’s easy to find, which YOU will benefit from – the more that joyn’s us, the more exposure and commenters YOU get and the more FUN we’ll have!
All Lifecruisers: Be generous
Link to others cruise posts in the end of your ordinary none cruise posts – as some of you already has done as the excellent cruisers you are.
Spread the word about the other cruisers posts, it’s nothing wrong with leaving tips to other bloggers, is there?
All Lifecruisers: Mingle!
The idea of the cyber cruise is not only to share with other cruisers, butt also to mingle with all the other cruisers, so please do some mingle on deck here and in the cruise ports. Let’s have even more fun
As you may have noticed, I sometimes add a row in the end of my post, butt still above the lifebouy, which says Lifecruiser Tips. That is because I want to encourage cruisers that aren’t A-Team Cruisers – yet – and has written posts that I find interesting.
It can even be links to A-Team Cruisers that haven’t announced the post as a cyber cruise port for some other reason.
Invite interesting blog buddies
If you have other blog buddies that you know writes posts that could fit the cyber cruise or has the potential of writing cruise posts – and love to have some fun – don’t hesitate to lead them here to check us out!
Or: tip me about them and I’ll contact them
New A-Team Cruiser
I’ve upgraded A. from A Changing Life‘s membership here to A-Team Cruiser. She has already shown a great potential, being with us a lot AND taking an own initiative to write her nice special “side-posts” to our cyber cruise posts!
She has already proven her capability, last time with her wonderful post about Amsterdam impressions.
Well done and welcome on the top deck, A.!!!
Whispering: There are a couple of other bloggers in my mind, that might climb up to top deck soon!
Downgraded A-Team Cruisers
We have a few A-Team Cruisers who hasn’t been active as a Lifecruiser for a very long time now.
They are downgraded to the A-Swab Team deckroll – not thrown out in the Sea directly
You’re ALWAYS warmth ♥ welcome back later as an A-Team Cruiser – we miss you
New A-Swab Team Members
We have a couple of new cruisers that haven’t been properly introduced yet:
Eastcoastlife were found by myself. I found her tracks all over the internet
Cut from her blog:
“Proud citizen of Singapore. Some people don’t deserve to live on this beautiful country. Somebody wants to hurt my 15 year-old son. I’ll do everything to save him. Hear my stories. I’m determined. I’m fearless. How much will it take to break me? I live on the east coast of Singapore……”
Vlado&Toni came her upon recommendation from one of our A-Team Cruisers. Excellent done Gattina!!! You get an extra bottle of Dom for this!!! *giggles*
Cut from their blog:
“Vlado and Toni have been married for almost 5 years and lives in a nice,small town near Frankfurt in Germany. Vlado comes from Bulgaria and Toni is a filipina. They don’t have a baby yet, but they have a cat who thinks he is one. Vlado works and Toni shops Seriously, Toni works as a kindergarden teacher. Vlado on the other hand, hopes he can get a new J-O-B SOOOOOONNNNN before he loses his mind”.
Hop over and make them feel welcome at the ship
Lifecruisers sidebar cleaning
I don’t like when my sidebar get cluttered by all kind of different buttons and colors and sizes - if they don’t fill their purpose. So, the Bloggers Choice Award button and the Spicypage buttons had to go.
I think that both of those sites are kind of dead, so I cut them off as dead meat
I’m still nominated for both Best Travel Blog and Best Humor Blog, just not showing the button. The group I have in Spicypage were hardly not used by anyone. It’s still there, I’m just not using it anymore.
Bloggers Awards All Kinds
Thanks x millions for all the awards received just recently. I’m overwhelmed of how nice all blogbuddies are! Though I find it a bit tough to keep up with all these love-showing awards going on everywhere for the moment and have no place for them in my sidebar….
