Get the Word Out Wednesday Link Up #8

Get the Word Out Wednesday


Thank you for stopping by and please be sure to tell everyone you know (bloggers and readers) about the opportunity to spread the word.

If you are a return guest a The Zippy Zebra you will note that we have been making some changes to the blog in layout and content.  The last few weeks have seen more growth than we initially expected and while we are still small and relatively new it seems that we are reaching people. Be sure to check out the changes including our new “Featured items of the week.”

BONUS THIS WEEK:  Book Giveaway

Thursday March 5th we will be launching a book giveaway.  The first in the paranormal series by Rebecca Howard (a fellow EDSers).  The giveaway will also contain a link to an additional free book and other info so please check back in March 5th for the details.  Feel free to sign up for emails or “like” us on facebook to receive reminders.

If you or someone you know is an author, blogger, video person or has a story to share please send them our email and ask them to share with us.

“Get the Word Out Wednesday” Link-up will be available EVERY  Wednesday for blogs featuring articles that will help those with a chronic illness.

This linkup is not only for zebras but ANYONE with a chronic illness that has a personal story, help (allergen-free recipes, ideas), adaptation ideas, testimonial or anything that would be helpful or encouraging to others, (even sharing a day in your life).

The idea of the “Get The Word Out”   link-up is to spread the word about our illnesses, adaptations, short-cuts, tools, articles, stories, etc… and support each other during this sometimes lonely journey.

Bloggers struggling with pain and challenges can visit other sites, while non-bloggers can find others like them and follow along while offering encouragement to one another.

I LOVE fun crafty, save money, anything goes linkups but the “Get The Word Out” Link-up is not one of those.  We will have a few rules to keep the links useful and uplifting to our readers.



1.)  Blog Links must be family friendly and link to a post.  Not a home page.  You may link up to 3 posts in one link-up party.

2.)  The links used can offer personal stories of your life with a chronic illness, pain, handicap, physical challenge or invisible illness.  Income earning ideas for those with physical challenges (not promoting your downline specifically-it must be an actual post sharing what it is how and it helped you.)  Tools (splints, braces, grabbers, kitchen tools, etc… that have helped you in some way to “adapt” to your challenge (illness), recipes adapted to deal with an allergy, articles on helping a child with physical or mental challenges (diet, behavior, sensory, ADD, ADHD, etc…), articles on awareness, information, compiled useful lists, etc…

3.)  If you are a reader and do not have a blog but would like to offer an article you feel would be helpful.  Just leave the name or a link in the comments and our readers can look it up and I will contact them about joining our weekly link-up.  (Hopefully as word spreads we were have an abundance of articles to offer.)

New To Link-ups?

Bloggers here’s how:

1.)  At the bottom of this post you will find a blue button that says “Add Your Link”.  Click on it.

2.)  Follow the instructions on the next page.   Please remember to link to a specific post and not your main page.  (We encourage readers to explore your page but do not want them to get frustrated and quit looking if they cannot find the article they originally wished to link to.)

3.)  Stop by a few of the other blogs and leave a note of encouragement on the articles you enjoyed.  Feel free to mention that you were sent there through this linkup.  (To encourage them to link-up again.)

4.)  Please link back to The Zippy Zebra.  I do not have a special button yet but feel free to use the icon at the top with an embedded link OR a simple text link will do.  (If you dont know how please message me and we can walk through it.)
