So what can you do? First of all, vote for the Kirtsy'd Pick O' the Day (it always appears in the first category of the post). How do you "vote" for something with Kirtsy? Simply by clicking on the title of a story. So it's two clicks: you click from my link to the post on Kirtsy and then you click on the post's title. You don't even need an account with Kirtsy to participate.
Secondly, you can help me find good posts to Kirtsy. What makes a good Kirtsy post? Something with staying power. Something that doesn't require you to know a person's backstory in order to jump into the post. Something that presents a "how-to" or stands as a quintessential post to the experience. Something that can be read well into the future and still makes sense.
- Anything that gives insight into the experience (a blow-by-blow of your HSG)
- Anything that presents a "how to" or gives a guide (such as AI's Noob List)
- Anything that kicks off an ongoing project (such as Perfect Moment Mondays)
- Anything that stands as an example of part of the ALI experience (the day you matched, your first retrieval, getting the diagnosis, etc).
- Anything so personal that it's not accessible without knowing the backstory.
- Anything that is so all-over-the-place that it can't be summed up in a sentence or two.
- Anything that is just your average post (do you know what I mean? The one you'll never remember two days from now).
Please help out also by voting for Kirtsy'd posts. That is how they actually reach the front page. I'm trying to keep Kirtsying to a minimum so the site is not flooded and the voting watered down. Hence why I may not be able to Kirtsy everything that comes in or everything I find on my own. But I'll put the posts I've Kirtsy'd in the news section of the LFCA so you can help out and get our work a wider readership--either bringing new people into the community who haven't found our corner of the blogosphere yet or helping those outside the experience understand.
