Attention pro-Life and Liberty Tea Party Citizen Reporters/Bloggers:
If you are pro-life, pro-family, pro-liberty, pro-limited government, pro-strong defense and you are a great citizen reporter/blogger and would like to help us promote our Life and Liberty causes and would like to see your great work promoted to our millions of monthly readers on FR, then this post could be for you.
Our Bloggers Forum ( http://www.freerepublic.com/tag/bloggers-forum/index ) is open to all liberty-loving bloggers to post their great work to FR. But our readers are mostly interested in reading relevant posts in their entirety on FR without having to click to an unknown outside website where who knows what kind of cookies or tracking devices may await them. And they appreciate it very much when the blog authors join in on the ensuing conversation and become one of us.
Many times bloggers will post brief snippets only of their material and expect our readers to click on their link to get the "rest of the story" and then very seldom join in on the conversation that follows. No doubt this can give a blogger a few dozen extra hits and sometimes a little more, but unfortunately, it also raises the ire of some of our members.
If you would like to see your blog make it to the big times, and you have great news or great ideas to report, post your blog articles in their entirety to our Bloggers Forum on FR, and then join in on the fight for Liberty that follows!! If our readers like what you're posting, you may quickly become an accepted, trusted FReeper and you may start enjoying hundreds of new hits per each of your posted articles from FReepers who wish to see what else you may have to offer.
And, as a big bonus, if our moderating staff sees that you are an accepted, trusted member they may promote your work to the main news forum.
And an additional big bonus, if you really have breaking or front page news to report or something really worthy of sidebar attention, if they promote one of your articles to Breaking News, Front Page News or one of our other sidebars you could receive thousands or even tens of thousands of new hits to your blog and thousands of new readers. Especially if someone like Drudge or Rush or the Great One or some other host or well-known reporter sees it on FR, picks up on it, and it goes viral on the net or the air-waves.
Thank you all very much for your great work for Liberty!!
The lamestream media be damned!! Full steam ahead citizen reporters/bloggers!!
Rebellion is ON!!
Humblegunner: we now have a complete and solid guideline, and support for the elimination of the blogpimpers. Blog people? They are fine. Blog PIMPERS? Skull and crossbones.
Jim, I’d like to point out something else as well. Posting the full text on FreeRepublic can raise the article’s visibility across all search engines as well, drawing even more reader’s to the bloggers work. And of course, the bigger the article, the more words to catch search engine traffic with.
Frequently, I’ll find a search engine reference to a post on FreeRepublic before the search engine has even indexed the article on the original site.
Educate and inform the whole mass of the people... They are the only sure reliance for the preservation of our liberty.
Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms (of government) those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
Keep Free Republic independent, and YOUR VOICES will be heard!
We're are America's Exclusive Site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty Conservatives.
Donate today, Monthly if you
I hadn't noticed. ;-)
Thanks for this post Jim.
Is this where you apply to get promoted? Meritorious and/or posthumous options available or both! :-}
If its good enuf for HG .. next round is on him. ;-)
I have an empty blog that points here cuz I do all my dirty work here.
Bless the Mods too .. Keep on Keepin’ On!
Kind of like the "Good Housekeeping Seal Of Approval". I wonder who might serve as such an 'overlord'?
Right on. This is good for FR.
I’d like to point out one thing to potential bloggers. Our (FR’s) copyright, excerpt, and link-only policies still apply to blog material posted in full here. If your article includes someone’s copyrighted material, the mods may have to pull your article in order to comply with FR policy. Don’t be offended. The mods will likely allow you to repost your article with the copyrighted material properly excerpted or linked. Our mods are very reasonable about unintentional mistakes. (Well, except for Sidebar. I’ve heard he shoots bloggers for too many misspellings.)
Now who are the mods that I need to suck up to? My your hair looks nice today, Sidebar. And Admin Mod, you look like you’ve lost weight. What’s your secret? Oh, and Religion Mod, that was a very intuitive judgment call you made earlier. You have the wisdom of Solomon and the patience of Job. And, Jim, ...
Too much? ;p
I nominate humblegunner. Give him something useful to do in his spare time (if he has any).
I'm good with that, boss. It's already in my job description. ;-)
Great idea Jim. Don’t know how many times have started reading a thread only to not finish it because of not wanting to click on an unknown site.
Also spurs discussion of a subject without MSM bias.
"..hey...that window on the left, wit da shades....she has...she has....two of the biggest....scratch posts I've ever seen"
