go hug a newbie

Kate at itisi has come up with a great idea: "Be Nice to a Newbie Week".

It's sprung from a discussion that's been going on on one of her posts regarding some established blogger's dismissive attitudes to people who haven't been blogging very long.

I think it's a great idea.

That is all.

Back Tuesday, after the auction.

  1. It is a great idea. You're right.
    Again, good luck tomorrow. I'll worry all day, you know...

  3. I've got several 'newbies' on my link list and (you too I imagine) hope I am always extra welcoming to new bloggers.

    I havent even seen any nastiness aimed at newbies - maybe I mix in the 'wrong' circles! Lucky me!

  5. Goodluck with it all at your end. :-)

    As for newbies, I like to think I have always be welcoming and encouraging as we all should be to all people in all areas of life. Still, a special effort can't be a bad thing. Unless it is patronising! ;-)

  7. I love newbies. Anx and Laura/Jonesey were both really tolerant and welcoming to me when I was just getting my blogfeet wet. So I try to spread the good attitude. I think it stinks that some people see everything as a freaking contest.

    I will be thinking of you tomorrow! Good thoughts and chocolate a-comin' your way.
