Join the First Commenter Club! *


When I first started giving out free linky love to my First Commenter (FC) for any star posts that you see here or at MPG, I did not think it would end up being so much FUN! Soon after, several blogger friends followed suit in showing appreciation for their First Commenter by giving out free linky love as well.

Some vary the way the link is given while others add EC credits on top of the free linky love. However it's done, there's no denying the fun that we've enjoyed in trying to win that much coveted FC spot in order to be featured at the host blog. So after much thinking and conferring with my BFF confidante LadyJava, I've decided to make things formal by starting a brand new
First Commenter Club!

I think most of you who are already giving away linky love to your First Commenter realize by now that this is indeed a wonderful way for us to thank our commenters who make the effort to stop by and comment on our blogs. It is also a great way to increase your traffic and comments as bloggers are more inclined to drop by your blog to see if you have a new star post out in hopes of winning the free link back that you are giving away.

The FC Club will house all members under one roof. This will make it easier for us bloggers to visit and get to know one another better. Furthermore, all members would be aware of which blogs are giving away free linky love to their first commenters, thus encouraging other FC members to visit your blog!

The rules are simple, because we like things simple and sweet.

1. Your blog gives away FREE linky love to your FIRST COMMENTERS.
  • It doesn't matter how many times in a month you have FC linky love posts at your blog but do take note that the tendency of other bloggers visiting you (to win the linky love you are giving away) increases with the number of FC linky love posts you write.
2. Display the FC button and blogroll in your sidebar.
  • Once we have finalized the FC Club member list, please come back here to get your code for the complete blogroll of Members.
Here is the badge to display at your sidebar.

Hi Bill, u mean the FCC scoreboard???

Rosidah Abidin,  March 18, 2009 6:57 PM

I don't know if it's still okay to join, since the number of blogs has already exceeded 100. But I would love to keep your button on my side, because the thought of giving some first comment love links is so appealing to me. Hopefully you don't mind. Thank you :)

Hi LJ and Mariuca, thank you :). I have tried to add the FCC commenters table from LJ's blog, but still having some trouble for adding the names in the commenters column. Could you please help me on this? Sorry for the trouble :-[

Mariuca,  March 23, 2009 11:25 AM

Hi Rosidah, am not sure why u’re having trouble dear. What do u mean eh? The names won’t appear or what?

Rosidah Abidin,  March 23, 2009 2:35 PM

Yes Mariuca, the names won't appear.

Adam,  March 28, 2009 5:49 PM

I am not sure whether you have noticed but a number of people who are in the club DO NOT give "free linky love". I guess they are here for the free ride.

Recent blog post: Twitter and I

Mariuca,  March 28, 2009 6:04 PM

Hi Adam! Thank you for ur comment. I will be going through ALL the blogs on the list again and if there’s still no linky love post (at least ONE this month), I will remove them from the list. Apparently some people are still unaware of this linky love concept, despite my previous TWO posts, so I will write one last reminder post and if there’s still no linky love given, they’re off the list. Thanks for bringing this up Adam, you rock! :)

Rosidah Abidin,  March 28, 2009 6:15 PM

I really hope that they will become aware of this thoughtful concept :)

Mariuca,  March 29, 2009 1:04 AM

Thank you Rosidah! I don’t know how else I can make it clear to those who still can’t seem to grasp the concept. So will def write another post and that will be my final one! Enjoy the rest of your weekend dear. :)

ph_investor,  March 29, 2009 6:11 AM

This is a great idea! I already added the badge. Pardon the newbie question, am I correct when I say that I can give "free linky love" by adding a link to the FC's blog on my blog's link exchange page?

Recent blog post: What To Expect When Buying Foreclosed Properties

Mariuca,  March 29, 2009 6:22 AM

Hi Ph investor, thanks for ur comment. :)
Linky love here means rewarding your FIRST COMMENTER on your posts with a link back to ur FC’s blog, at the end of the given post. You can see the way I do it here at my post. Can u see the badge at the bottom of this post? That’s the one! :)

ph_investor,  March 29, 2009 8:55 AM

Now I get it, in this case the link back was awarded to LadyJava through here badge. Thanks Mariuca! :)
