Hello!

It took me FOREVER to finally FIND Tuesday Thinger. No one ever linked to this group with the button, and the button didn't indicate it was related to LibraryThing at all....

So here is my offer: Would you like me to redesign your button to make it more "library-thing-ish"?? Who do I approach / offer this to?

I'm a freelance web & graphic designer... but love to make buttons and graphics for things I participate in! (read: this wouldn't cost anyone anything!)

I don't know what others will answer. I like our current logo, and while I know it doesn't say anything about LT, we know what it is. It's not meant to be a public advertisement for LT or anything like that; it's just a loose association and webring of (mostly) LT ER bloggers who got together and agreed we like participating in a weekly group topic posting. Boston Bibliophile picks a topic and whoever is around and has the time blogs on it. Those who want to join the ring and list the members. It's pretty fluid and informal.
But that's just me. I'm fine with whatever others feel.
Thanks for the offer all the same.

I agree. Nothing wrong with the current logo/button, no need to change.

Anyway, the person to ask would be BostonBibliophile - the Tuesday Thingers started there.

I"m guessing maybe the problem is a lack of linkage...if the button doesn't link back to an explanation, new people reading the blogs might be confused. In that case, I'm all for improving that aspect. That might help tuesday thingers grow, which could also help each individual's blog grow...but I only rarely can participate!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think part of the deal in participating in Tuesday Thingers is that bloggers provide a link back to the original site, which is www.bostonbibliophile.com

Or is that just for the Sunday Salon?

Um, I don't think a link is required (since there's no reciprocal link exchange), though it is always helpful.

After all, whoever started this thread had no idea what or where Tuesday Thingers was started.

I've never linked at all, and I don't use the image (and haven't been thrown out on my fanny yet) so I really don't think the link or the image are required.

It might be useful if there was a page or something that linked to the various weeks of questions and explained what it is, though.

Most (if not all) of the blogs should have a link to the webring, though. I haven't visited it since I signed up, but for newbies it might be a useful way of getting information about it, if we put some up there.

I always use the image, and link back to (marie's) the boston bibliophile's post with the question.

For those who don't know, if you comment on marie's question that week, with a link to your answer, most of the other commenters will visit your blog to see your answer.

Having a link back to marie's post on your answer makes it easier for people to navigate back to the other answers, and basically to me, thanks marie for running tuesday thingers.

I think a link is helpful for those reasons as well.

But it is one of the things I like about Mr. Linky...once you are done you can convert the links to html links. I think if you requiring a link it's only polite to link back.
