This for That McKLinky - GET HELP BY HELPING #3

As bloggers, we all find ourselves in need of a little help every once in a while. Or, if we're really busy, maybe more often than that :)  What I'd like to try to do is have a place for us to help each other.  I love the groups on Pitch It to Me, Mom Bloggers Club, etc. where you can comment on each others reviews, enter each others' giveaways, etc.  I am not suggesting that this MckLinky replace those things...I will still use them!  The problem is that I often get lost in the stream of messages and don't know who has commented on or entered mine and whose I'm supposed to be commenting on or entering and so on...

In an effort to make this process a little bit easier, I'd like to try out "This for That"...a place where you can ask someone to comment on a review, enter a giveaway, RT for you, vote for you, etc.  The point is that you ask someone to do something for you, and you do something to help that person out too! You don't necessarily have to do the same thing for someone else that you're asking them to do for you.  For example, you might want someone to vote for you, but they might ask you to RT for them in return.

So that you don't have to keep coming back to the linky over and over again, let's try it this way this today (Friday) and see how it goes...

Post your "need" in the MckLinky by writing about what you need and linking to where others can fulfill that need.  Meet the need of the 3 ppl above your link, AND THEN YOU ARE DONE! If you want more than 3 ppl to help you out, then wait a bit, come back later and enter your need again (just make sure you AGAIN help out the 3 ppl above you).  The idea is that you help out 3 ppl and 3 ppl help you out...AND you don't have to wonder if you left someone hanging because your job is done as soon as you help out the three ppl above you!  You can link up as many times as you want! 

Now, the 1st three ppl each day get a bonus because there are aren't three ppl above them (though plz try to do as many as are above you).  The LAST 3 ppl each day will become the first three ppl the next day--I'll reenter their entries when I post the next day's list. 

So here's an example (without links)

1. Please vote for my picture! {would link to place to vote}
2. Please RT  "I'm trying 2 win a $25 gc to Safeway w/ Ten Talents and MyBlogSpark.  I'll save so much it will be like I won a $100 gc!" {no need to link RTs...just make sure you provide what you want them to RT}
3. My review needs some more comments!  {would link to review that needs comments}
4. Low entries on my giveaway....please enter! {would link to giveaway}

Now, person #2 would do #1, person #3 would do #1 & #2, person #4 would do #3, #2, & #1, and so on.  If you CANNOT do what someone asks for some reason, please do what you can and email me and I will do what you can't...providing I can :)

So...let's give this a try!  I would REALLY APPRECIATE you guys helping me get the word out about this so we can help each other out!

What a cool idea!
Unfortunately, I can't do #4 because it's USA only and I'm in Canada :(

#9 says "blog does not exist" when you click networked blogs link. :(

Besides that, I did most, if not all, of the ones requesting followers!

I'm number 27 and completed 26, 25, 24. Started thinking though, what would the etiquette be if say the person above you wants people to follow via gfc and you're already following via gfc for example? Also what if they want you to enter a certain giveaway but it's really something you would use for example say it's for plus size clothing and you don't wear plus sized clothing? Just curious for future reference in case I run into that. I think this is a great idea though. I don't mind helping at all. I'd probably still enter any giveaway anyway. I'm sure I'd know someone that could use it. Sorry for all the questions.

Thanks for letting know this was back up, and for your comment on Family Volley. I fulfilled the three requests above me, and then started going down the list to help others out too. I will be back daily to help all I can. Thanks again.

Love this idea - I couldn't stop with three and I'm doing a few more, too!
